Thank you, not interested in anything commercial...
Then you need to turn off your computer, burn your books, don't talk to anyone that knows about bees so you won't become contaminated
I'm a second generation hobby
I have learned an immense amount from researchers, old books, a few larger and large scale beekeepers. I hope to continue to do so.
Hobbiests don't have enough hives to decipher trends or true effects.
Researchers seldom work with 100's of hives to do their tests, but they do keep great records and can extrapolate their data to cover the industry.
Commercial beeks work with 1000's and ten's of thousands.
When they try something, the percentages are easier to figure out.
If it works, keep doing it. If it doesn't work, quit it, or go out of business.
Think about it for a bit.
Years as a successful commercial beek.
With a scientists mind.
Read everything printed on the subject at the time.
Knew and discussed bees with other notable beeks of the time.
Kept records and then tells us everything he learned.
And you are just going to dismiss it as something beneath you?
As you have argued with and dismissed others here that were trying to help you.
I have no further interest in your cobbled up extractor and hope I'm never exposed to any hive products produced in a similiar manor.
Sorry about the rant folks, I haven't been stung lately.
