Haven't done any crush and strain since the 70's when I didn't have extractor but DON'T use cheesecloth, leaves very fine particles in the honey.

You need a strainer.  I like a double bucket strainer with either screen wire or nylon cloth for a "filter".

Crush it however you like.  I cut out the combs into the strainer and mash them with my hands into little balls of wax.
