This is how I press honey from cappings and from comb. 1) Make a rectangular frame out of 2x4. 2) Mount on the inside of the frame a strong hook at opposite ends of the frame. 3) Make a cloth bag with loops on each end and a hole in the middle small enough for a small steel pipe. 4) Now fill the bag with cappings or comb and attach it like a hammock to the hooks. Insert the steel pipe through the hole in the middle of the bag and twist like a tourniquet. There are variations on how to wring the bag out but this is the easiest to make. The honey comes out filter and most of the honey is pressed out of the wax.
