    Default Mobile, one or two jar, crush and strain apparatis (homemade)

    Have spoon in one hand and frame in other.
    Scrape and mash. What a waste of good bee effort, but sometimes it is wanted.

    I guess the high tech part depends on the spoon you use.

    Looks Great!

    Very nice idea. I wonder how much the screen will actually filter out?
    I have a similar screen (larger) that we uncap into. It allows the capping's to drain while we are still working.

    Even more interesting, is that an old table saw you are using as your table?
    Does it have a wooden top or is that a rusty patina?

    Thanks for sharing your idea!

    if the mesh strainer is not super coarse, it gets almost all the wax etc.
    Might need a funnel with this 10" strainer, very rigid, course and fine mesh on same strainer. $18 at restarant warehouse, or similar.
    Couldn't find any large conical mesh only large conical perforated, (too coarse)
