    Default Honey and wax

    At what temp does wax melt?

    I have an idea on how to liquify honey in the comb if the melting temps are far enough apart. I saw this box that a friend of mine made. It was a box made of poly. It has a pallet as a floor, and a lightbulb at the top. The lightbulb heats the box. He uses it to liquify 5 gal buckets of crystalized honey. I have a super that is mostly crystalized, I was thinking of making one of these, and using it to reliquify the honey so I can extract it. If this works, I'll make one large enough to hold 5 or 6 supers and warm them before extacting. I was thinking that I could install a thermostat. Any opinions?

    Thanks
