    Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    Hey Jim....what a great post.

    I'm curious about one (significant) aspect....the capacity (as you call it).

    Those numbers were based (I think) on 500,000/lbs/year.

    How many years out of 10...

    Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    Seems to me (based on my limited understanding of the product) that it could be run backwards and used as way to feed a cluster in the cold.

    Re: Heating Honey But Not Pasteurizing

    Barry, I dare say that for the majority of honey sales in the US, keeping the honey from crystailing on the shelf is "the job"....taking product back doesn't pay very well.

    Re: Heating Honey But Not Pasteurizing

    Wrong. Talk to antone in charge of a kitchen that prepares food for immunosupressed folks. They will not use honey that has not been pasturized (to kill the yeasts and other microorganosms).

    Re: Ordering Dadant Frames and Wax Foundation

    I've only seen wax melt off the top bars when the beekeeper first melts wax to the bar, and the comb is attached to the poorly attached wax rather than to the wood. I'm not saying it never happens...

    Re: Kregg Rip Cut circular saw guide?

    Most table saws don't have the table size or infeed/out feed capacity to do full sheets safely....never mind if the blade and fence ar parallel.
