    How does plastic foundation handle a hot knife for uncapping or an automatic uncapper?

    Thank you.

    Joe-
    I've used a hot knife on mine with no problems. I keep my knife at a low temp setting. Maybe call it a "warm" knife. I don't like burnt cappings. Sometimes I just use a cappings scratcher too. Can't say about an automatic.

    There is no difference with plastic foundation. There is a difference with PermaComb because it is fully drawn. The heat with PermaComb is a bad idea.
