I have several frames to extract and don't want to spend $ to rent an extractor for such a small amount.

This is my very-first harvest , so we are excited about getting some honey, even if it's a little.

Frames have both capped and uncapped cells.

I have a knife, uncapping fork, and some fine mesh filters.

I've heard of two separate methods: 1) cut off and crush - to allow honey to drip down through filter, OR 2) mildly heat pot inside another pot of water to melt wax away from honey, then separate by filtering.

Any ideas - greatly appreciated.
