Geesh!  So much for listening to the advice.   The vultures are just interested in the "goods"   ;)

Anybody out there prefer the serrated knife to their electric plane?   I call first dibs.... :-D



Robo,

How does that plane work on those frames that are very uneven with high and low sots?  It seems as though they would be a real hassle on those frames.

I suffered with an electic uncapping knife for a few years prior to opting for a fork of my mother inlaws.  The light suddenly went on and I bought an uncapping fork which is about 3 to 4 inches wide and if scaped along the capped comb, it uncaps the comb quite effectively.  Spinning in the extractor is no problem ...

I too tried a number of different knives, electric and serrated and ended up finally snatching a fork off the table. The fork works great but leaves a bit more wax in the extractor. That how ever is no problem as I set the extractor outdoors on it's side with the bottom slightly elevated so the wax and little bit of honey drain toward the front. The bees clean it up real good in a few days and the left over cappings are so dry I can blow them out with a hose.

I look over the great cleaning job I did and store the extractor for next year. No fuss no muss.  X:X
