Langstroth wire and wax frame assembly


When I started beekeeping I didn't even consider that I could make my own frames... what did I know?

That's a painfully slow embedder, we crank the current up on ours and it takes about 5-10seconds, but the thing is ya can't really get distracted.

[USER=2461]@beefree[/USER] agreed. I used a deep cell battery until very recently when I used to wire all the frames in one step then embed them all in the next. I'd heard of people using battery chargers so I tried it out. Yes it's slow, but the timing seems to fit well with wiring the frames. Overall I'm quicker with the slow embedder. If I could embed in 5-10 secs I'd go back to wiring them all first. Ultimately, as a hobbyist with few hives, it makes little difference how long it takes.

[USER=2461]@beefree[/USER] LOL you convinced me to improve the embedder. Removing all current limiting components I now get about a 10 sec embed for manuka special. Thanks
