I got my bees wax small foundation in today. I have tried to cut one piece of it into strips but, it keeps breaking above the cut.

How do I stop this?

Thanks,
Craig
P.S. I am using a ruler and a box cutter.

Its 57 here today. How do you stop the strip of foundation from breaking when you install them on the frame. I have wedge top frames. I am using an electrical staple gun, every time I shoot a staple the foundation cracks. Any tips?

Thanks

OK Thanks. I didn't realize how fragile this wax was.
