Maybe I'm just too strong and spun it too fast. I wasn't expecting the comb to get ruined. The wired comb did pretty well, it was the unwired foundationless that disintegrated.
Are there any tips for keeping your comb intact while using a manual extractor?
P.S. - I think I'm finding that extracting just before the main flow (while making sure each hive has enough for brood rearing of course) might be a really good time to extract - take the winter leftovers instead of guessing how much they'll need in the fall. Anyone else do that? Also, a positive about having deadouts, you get their honey (and so do your new nucs, or the growing colony that may need it).
