Re: wax dipping tank design
There are several alternatives to a "doughnut" style tank. One is to put some concrete blocks in the middle of a rectangular tank to reduce some of the wax required. Alternatively, since hive bodies are not square, you can insert one hive body the "short" way into one (or two) bodies sitting flat in the tank.
