    If you like simplicity, screw or nail a piece of plywood to the bottom of a deep super, coat the inside with wax, get the corners and joints real good.

    I'm using food grade "Bus boxes" that I got at sams for 12 bucks a pair.

    No pics but my first decapping tank was a kitchen sink. Got a double stainless steel sink off craigs list for $5. Plumbed both drains into one just like normal, set 10 frames in one side and decapped them into the other. Placed cheese cloth over both drains in the sinks to screen out the chunkies, any honey in either sink drained into a 2 gal. bucket under the down spout, once the cappings had drained good the honey catch bucket was removed and a smaller container was placed under the down spout.Then a heat lamp was placed under and over the cappings to melt them into the new catch bucket.
