    Mine came with a veggies type juicers the crank kind. I bought the set sev years ago from a thrift shop. I need to keep another one in the basement kitchen to drain the fermented feed...for morning feeding. Which Hubby does for me...
    The top of the alum funnel is about 9 inches on outside and goes down to the size of a regular mouth canning jar?
    after I finish a batch of fermenting grains I put it in an old pickle jar and use the big Visionware casserole tall dish to start another batch.....
    I tried long time Ebay and Amazon etc.....
    anyone?

    I'm not sure if this is what you want, but you can get large funnels at any auto store or department used in changing oil or pouring gas.

    A quick Google search of "canning funnel" gets a bunch of hits for large plastic or stainless steel funnels that fit mason jars.

    heck found one for like $25 but the shipping and tax is another $17.........which is absolutely ridiculous......I dont use Google I use only startpage or Ixquick.. the most private search engine.. but thanks anyway.. what somepeople consider large isnt.. its just the regular canning funnels. thanks anway take care all

    Might not be large enough for you, but I cut in half 5 gallon water jugs for large funnels.

    Excellent for refueling my diesel tractor.
