It will depend on the length and depth of your bars and whether or not they are honey comb or brood comb bars. I recover less wax from brood bars that they fill with honey. From my 19" long (17" interior length) and 10" deep bars that weigh 5-7 pounds at harvest including the bar, I recover approx. 1 oz of beeswax from each bar.
