Sweet! JP has an old chain uncapper that he bought off understudy two years ago at Bud3 (or was it Bud2??). I've been wondering how well they work. Keep us posted!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

I take it you load the frame and drop it through the chains with the handle.  Does it drop out the bottom at that point or do you bring it back up with the handle?  The thing I like about flail chain decappers is the knock off the burr and propolis and make all frames uniform

Nice!!   These produce alot of wax so be ready for it.  You will also need away to let the cappings drip.   I wish I could convert my Cook and Beal decapper from drum knives to chains.  Every once in a while mine will eat a frame
