Obviously, from my previous posts I have done a few cutouts. Not too many, but enough to realize that there is a ton I don't know.
Even though I have done several I am still stumped, nearly every time, on how to start the removal process. Once the wall, or whatever, is opened the first few combs are always oriented the most difficult way. (bees are so obstinate and contrary) For example, between the joists or studs with the comb parallel to them. Of course, there is always some type of plate, or something up against one if not both ends.
Maybe this is a simple thing for most, but I always have difficulty getting the first few combs out without major damage. Not sure if it is my inflexibility or my ignorance. I just can't seem to get my wrists to bend to get the right angles.
Kind of a vague question, I guess. More of a case-by-case answer, I suppose.
Any tricks, though, to starting the comb removal that might prevent as much damage as I usually cause?
