this is not a commercial for mastercard, but....personal satisfaction - priceless. and i think that is behind most beekeepers.from a commercial standpoint NO, from a hobby standpoint maybe cause I like to do hands on work, fix problems, and "get dirty". With the number of hives I currently have and the limited amount of time available, producing my own foundation would not be cost effective.
I agree, as stated "I like to get dirty" and love the personal satisfaction that comes with hard work, dilligence, innovation, etc. Maybe in a few years when my "day job" is behind me I would love to produce my own foundation...but for now the time is spent cutting and building our own boxes, pallets, lids, and SBB's, wiring frames and tending the bees...if only I had 2 more days a weekthis is not a commercial for mastercard, but....personal satisfaction - priceless. and i think that is behind most beekeepers.
Highly doubtful - as "Silicone Plastique® has the consistency of clay..." or "[is a] putty that has the consistency of cookie dough," the beeswax foundation used as an original will deform under the pressure required to push the stuff into it.
wonder if they make those in small cell size. Also to the person that has the water cooled one how does it work and is the foundation made with it very brittle.
