Hello can anyone tell me anything about this uncapper i have picked up?
I know nothing about it. I only know that the frame gets lowered down between the spinning plastic strips which scrap off the cappings.
Im going to strip it down get it blasted and then powder coat the frame.
Looks more like a device to knock the bees off than uncapping to me as I don't see any knives.
Been watching a lot of Russian/European videos on AZ style beekeeping and they tend to have something that looks like that for knocking the bees off into a bucket below, which would then be poured back into the hive.
