    Thanks again for the input.
    Yes, it is counterintuitive - but the thinner, unwound strings have two problems: 1. strength, and 2. more importantly, they will tend to slice your hands/fingers on those occasions where you are tempted to wrap some of it around your hands while you are working with it... On the other hand, the wound guitar strings are considerably thinner diameter compared to the pipe cutting version.

    Well, up here in the frozen north () I haven't been much in the hives yet - I figure the wedge will get most use in the summer when things get all gooey with propolis!
