    Default Hogg half comb refills

    I have the 4 3/4 inch super for the hogg half comb kit. I cannot find anyone who sells the replacement kit. Does anyone know where a person can find them. If not will the ross rounds work in the same 4 3/4 super. Thanks for all your help.

    I have contacted them and they no longer carry them. I have tried the website www.halfcomb.com and it comes up to some hair brushes. Makes me wonder if they quit making them. Thanks though.

    I got two kits from Mann Lkae this year, I had some damaged lids and they are going to try to get me some but may not have any. They said the Inventor of the Hogg system died about a year ago and so far his family has not done anything with the Patent so nothing has been made for about a year, they have no idea if this system will ever be made again.

    Thanks, I recently received that same information. I have also since found out that the Ross rounds will fit into my super with some very small modifications. I did like the Hogg system, it was very simple to use. I hope the family and start it back up. I would surely buy them again.

    I have used them. I loved them but have not been able to find the replacement cartridges. Hopefully Better Bee will have the replacement kits. I like them better than the Ross rounds myself. Each has its advantages and disadvantages but they seemed to fill out the Hoggs better than the Ross. Just my opinion.

    The guy who bought out the Hogg Cassettes is located in PA. His name is Herman Danenhower. You can reach him at 610-683-7754. Met him at EAS. Great guy, very down to earth.

    Why not just make cut comb and chunk?

    Valid point. And when you go to the website, the one product that is sold out is: chunk honey.

    Convenience, efficiency. I can package a super or RR in 1/10th the time it takes to cut, drain and package cut comb. I do make some foundationless for chunk honey. It is funny, both comb honey types are difficult to sell in Indiana. Most people have never heard or seen it. I usually sell it to transplants from the east or south.

    The other reason not to just cut the comb and package, the comb is never touched by anyone's hands.

    I went to Mr. Danenhower's website and watched his video of the Hogg half-comb cassettes in action. Looks pretty slick!

    I bet the "untocuhed by human hands" line would appeal to alot of people into uber-natural foods, too.

    But, it appears that Mr. Danehower is selling only the finished honey comb, and not the empty Hogg cassettes for use by other beekeepers.

    Mr. Danenhower will sell directly if you are willing to pick it up at his home in PA.
    I wrote him directly about it and that was his reply.
