    Thanks for all the details. I made a copy for my folder on hive boxes for future use.

    I wonder if you are doing all the same size boxes if a solid center in the tank would reduce the amount of material needed (at least for initial purchase). I was thinking just from the photo of building it out of the bricks and strapping them together. Set them on some a couple of bricks in the bottom. That would allow the bottom to have only a couple of points of contact to allow the burner to work. Would the bricks stay too cool to allow the mixture to melt around them? The cost of finish would be the same as the paint.

    I bought an even bigger tank that can do 4 deeps or 2 of my 4-way pallets stacked at a time.

    I wonder if anyone has tried a tank that is made closer to the size of a super/deep... Kind of like a donut, with an empty center. You would need a lot less wax/rosin?

    I'm working on building one similar to this video... Also doing the assembly clamp/painting fixture.
