I recently took the plunge and decided to move away from comb honey production and bought a large extractor (Maxant) for medium super extraction. The uncapping plane that I also bought works for a few frames and then develops a char. Also, it frequently mangles the comb more than the uncapping fork (German made, plastic handle). Am I using my uncapping plane wrong? Should I have bought an electric knife? I only have 13 hive that produced about 28 lbs (crush and strain, comb) a piece in years past. I suppose I could just use the uncapping fork, but this seems foolish.
