I just finished my first harvest, 65 lbs. from 2 hives, doing the crush and strain method. Due to some theft issues I sold all of my hunting lease equipment and will have the money to buy an extractor by the end of this week (Maxant 3100P). Anyway I currently have several hundred Walter Kelley type F frames I have been "stringing" with 20 lb. mono fishing line. For the most part, frames, I see no issue but some of my frames had very little attachment on the bottom bar and/or sides and am concerned about "blowouts" while power extracting.
Comments/recommendations would be appreciated. As a reference I now have 6 hives, 10 frame boxes, so that is why I am going to a power extractor.
Thanks in advance.
