Re: waxing plastic foundation
Just a word of caution. Using hot wax on the one piece Pierco frames can warp the foundation. Then have to install the bows all in one direction. Otherwise you get them almost touching and very deep cells. Go slow so as to not overheat. I would try rubbing on the cold wax.
I use a double boiler and a little water in the bottom of the top pan. An easy way to get a lot of the pollen out is to take a 2 inch strip of aluminum window screen, fold it in half, flatten out one end and use it like a spoon to fish out the pollen.
If you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always got!
