    Re: Wax melter in Kitchen

    No, i dont use cloth. I do the same wax twice so it is cleaner.

    Re: Minimum amout of rosin for wax-dipping hives?

    145 C is 293 F
    155 C is 311 F

    Flash point of parrafin is around (over mostly) 200 C - 392 F it depends on which parrafin you use

    Just try getting it to 300 F and i think you'll have no problem
