So I had a bunch of comb from some cutouts, I seperated out all the light color stuff in put it in the solar melter, I just built. The instructions say to use a coarse screen. I used some #8 hardware cloth, I got about 3 pounds of pale yellow wax. What is the next step in cleaning this wax, as I have no doubt that the #8 cloth let in a bit of larva?
Also should I do anything different with the dark wax I'm gonna do next, or will the sun bleach it and I'm just wasting my time seperating?
I can post a pic of the melter if anyone is intrested, I got some scrap sheets of 1" thick black rubber foam, and lined it with that. I tested it for a short period with a thermometer and it was over 200 degrees!
