i use the uncapping knife, just rest it in some warm water in between cutting frames. i have seen the scratcher but surmise that i will lose some of the wax that i would normally get.

In the old days we used 4 uncapping knives.  Painted or marked the handles with different colors or numbers.  Put a pan of boiling water on the stove and put in the uncapping knives with handles sticking over the side.  Grab a frame with 1 hand and knife #1 in the other and slice, turn frame, exchange knife #1 for knife #2 and slice again.  Next frame knives #3 & 4 were used and then back to #1.  When the standard extrator was only 4 frames the knives had plenty of time to get back up to temp between uncappings for the next set.

I've been told that halogen lights produce a full spectrum light and they do produce a significant amount of heat (don't ask me how I know this).
If that is true, I'm wondering if you couldn't make your sun tea in the winter.

Brian that is exactly how I uncapped my honey last year.  Only I had 3 knives that I alternated, didn't have the 4th.

So if the hony is  "raw" and you put it into the tea or what ever how does that change the "rawness." Your putting "pure" honey into a product and eating it or drinking it right away. To me its still raw unprocessed honey.
