(Pics) time to take this...
« on: November 19, 2016, 07:11:31 pm »


then after running it through this:



ending up with this:





then load up this:





Because we get our power for half price during nights and weekends I'll be turning the wax melter on first thing in the morning and hopefully be done by evening. ;D
Last year it looked like this:







I hope I have a better idea on the the temps this year, last year was a steep learning curve on this for me.

Dang that looks GOOD!  As always I am envious of that setup!
   What have you had to change/move to make everything more convenient?

When I was done extracting I took the vibrating jiggle knife off the melter and mounted the hood back on (just 3 pins). After thinking about it for a while I decided to not melt my wax out at the honey house unless I was prepared to sit out there all day.  I have the heat turned off in the honey house now as well so I decided to bring the melter home where I can keep a close eye on the process. I turned it on an hour ago (I just finished my first cup of coffee this am) at 7 am and will check hourly.

Need a man cave at one end of the building you can relax in while you wait!

   I imagine it is more convenient at the house... check wax often while not chasing wife!    ;D
