Hey everybody, just wondering if anybody in Melbourne, or thereabouts, has a 4, 6 or 8 frame extractor along with an uncapping knife I might be able to borrow/rent for a weekend?

It might be a bit of a drive.   http://www.bindaree.com.au/pricelists/hire.htm

Your local Bee Club generally has a group extractor and equipment to loan its members. Kew or Doncaster were places where the clubs were very active. Bar that, you could do the scrape and squeeze method for all those frames. Keep ya busy for a while with all those hives.

Thanks Mardak,

I'm not a member of any club yet and i don't want to join up and then in the next breath say "hey, do you guys have an extractor i can use". Scrape and squeeze is not an option - i don't want to ruin the good work they've done drawing out the comb and i would sooner they put their energies in to re-filling the combs for a second extraction in spring rather than rebuilding the comb - thanks for your thoughts though
