Old Wax processing

SONY DSC

Today I melted some dirty old brood and honey frames down for the first time , its turned out well , this was just a small batch and have more to do. I will then turn it into furniture polish and sell.

Its as messy as honey extracting but far more dangerous as wax has a low flash pint so you cant heat it to much past melting point, also if you do it alters the composition of the wax and it blackens

A good start and another string the the beekeeper bow
