Anyone know what type of equipment is used to press wax into 1/16" thick sheets with honeycomb pattern... the kind of sheets sold for rolling candles?

I don't see how that makes sheets from liquid wax, it looks like the smooth roolers would thin/even out your sheet and the second set do the embossing. Or am I missing something?

Can we hear from somebody who is actually using this equipment? By the time you make the flat sheet, roll it once and roll it twice - supply the wax ( after having cleaned it) and counting something for time....is this really a realistic operation?

I supply my cappings ( solar melted into a block) to my supplier and pay 46 cents ( Australian) per sheet and get a full size sheet of clean, perfect foundation.
