    Well I pulled the trigger and bought one. It is well built, seems like it will last a long time. The weak link I think is the large rubber O ring that is used as a tensioner. The good thing is it will be easy to change out and will be cheap to replace. I'll let you know this spring how it works.

    Great! I’ve the ML uncapper that it supposedly sits on, so an unbiased opinion is certainly welcome. If it performs, I’ll buy one.

    The first video he did I kind of wondered about that since he's a hands on - in the bee yard kind of guy, but when he had the second video which was the same format (showing and talking about a product) I really wondered if he was getting paid for the endorsement. Which is fine, good for Don. Other people who get products typically state at the beginning that so and so sent them a product for an unbiased review, that they're getting paid or not getting paid, etc. I figured he wasn't going to use it since harvest season had passed which made it come off a little shady. If it works it works, looks like a simple solution to uncapping, just need someone who has put it through its paces for a more informed review.

    I bit the bullet and ordered one today. Certainly a cheaper option for me than the more expensive powered units provided it works as well as it looks on the video. Girl I spoke with said it would ship tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

    My uncapper came today. I'm pretty impressed, seems very well built as well as a simple design. Extracting season is a long way off but I am looking forward to trying it out.

    Has anyone tried this uncapper with frames with wax foundations? What results did you have?

    The uncapper is so new that unfortunately it appears no one has had the opportunity to use it yet on any frames. In speaking with the manufacturer, it does not do all that well on old brood frames that were subsequently used for honey. Then again, my hot knife has a difficult time with them.

    I am dying to know how they work... I'm just hoping someone in the southern hemisphere got their hands on one
