I have made a few round comb sections over the years but i have not found a good way of putting the labels on even. They either over lap on the ends or get a wrinkle in the sides. Anyone got a good method?

Lots of practice.   That is why I let my wife practice it now.  That way I don't get yelled out so much.

Happy wife, happy life.

kdm, could you lay the label upside down on a flat surface and then peering through the plastic lid, position it correctly as you place the lid on the label?

My wife did the extracting when i was still working. I worked away from home a lot. She has wised up, can't get her near the honey house now.    The label goes around the outside edge, you can't see through the comb.   Guess practice makes better.
