Re: Anybody used an "uncapping punch"?
I have one, but not for uncapping. A type of honey we get here jellifies in the comb and will not extract. So the comb is uncapped with a knife, then rolled up and down a few times with the spiked roller to loosen up the honey so it will extract.
I did try rolling without uncapping to see if it would work, did work, kinda, but not that well, I'd recommend uncapping with a knife.
