Cappings Scratcher
Our Price: $28.75

Easy uncapping for a few hives, or for uncapping low spots when using an automatic uncapper.  Use it to just lightly scratch the surface of the capped cells.  This will also encourage the bees to build up the recessed cell area.  The honey when extracted has more tiny particles of wax in it than usual, but these rise to the top and can easily be skimmed off. Alternatively hold it nearly parallel to the comb, insert the prongs just under the surface of the caps and saw them off with a side to side motion.

Made from strong nylon mesh, and fitted with chrome metal hooks. Simply put your cappings into the cappings bag place the bag in your extractor, hook the bag shut and spin. You will end up with reasonable dry cappings to melt down and  all that lovely cappings honey straight into your extractor.  No wasted honey, no mess and no fuss An ideal solition to a long standing problem.
Tubing for Steam Knives
Our Price: $3.00

Ideal for the job, its tough light and very pliable. Sold by the metre so you buy as much as you need. For safety sale make sure the exit end is free to the air, such as down the sink or out the window not in a container where the consensed steam will turn back into water, build up and the end of the tubing will become back pressured under the water.
Boiler/Pressure Cooker

We no longer make steam boilers.  An old style pressure cooker, the sort with a central steam release hole covered by a heavyweight makes a very suitable source of steam. Grandma's kitchen cupboard, a local op shop or flea market are all good places to look. We occasionally have one on our bargain table in Brisbane so a phone call might be worthwhile.
