    Nice!

    Perhaps some black plastic trash bags could line the interior of "mobile wax melter" and possibly the containers as well.

    Thanks, I am just testing to see if it gets hot enough to melt the wax. If it does I'll finesse it after that.

    We finally got some sunshine and warmth. I learned that it works best without water in it or else condensation ruins your ability to see if it is working.

    Ben, galvanized 1/4 screen supporting a piece of window screen. I bet the pick-up smells great. I love that smell.
