jp and iddee are the cutout masters. i will only add that leaving your new hives out is a good idea. that hive may swarm before you get it cut out. while this will not solve your problem, it will give you another hive if they settle in your equipment.
also agree on doing it as soon as you can. the longer you wait, the more bees, brood, and honey, you'll have to deal with. smaller is better especially on your first cutout
take time to read through the removal section. there are many good posts and a list of equipment. anyone there will also be happy to answer your questions.
