Kate, I did a squeeze and strain last year on a deep of crosscombed foundationless frames. Grab a bucket and a strainer and just squeeze the snot out of a handful of comb. Goes pretty quick, especially if you are not outdoors and having to flick the bees off the comb before you squeeze it. The water from the first boil of the wax can be fed back to the bees
