For crush and strain I plan on employing my cider press.  One more use for an already expensive piece of equipment.  I couldn't afford both a cider press and an extractor and having had and sold an extractor in the past I believe that using the cider press will give me a good quality of honey with less effort than an extractor will.  Also, in my experience, honey that has less air content crystalizes more slowly.  The wax will come out as essentially a block too making rendering in a solar wax melter easier as I can just drop the pressed wax into the melter.  Candles and Soap are some of the things I'll be making out of the wax--self reliance is import these days--most of the world is one natural disaster away from starvation and my place is not only green up self-sustaining.
