Extracting
« on: May 10, 2009, 07:48:58 AM »
I bought a bunch of shallow supers cheap. They all have new cut comb foundation. My question is: Can I extract these supers or can they be used only for cut comb honey? I will save some of them for cut comb, but don't want all cut comb. Thanks.

 You can extract them. My extractor will hold two shallows in the same area you can put 1 deep frame.

Yes, you can extract them.  I used to use shallows and would always use the thin surplus foundation and do cut comb out of the nicest ones and extract the rest.
