There is a proper tool for every job. We didn't have that tool so we made some stuff up with and threw our temp controller on top. Normally when harvesting honey from langstroth bee hive frames you insert the frames in a centrifuge and spin out the honey leave thing the wax. Centrifuges are pretty expensive starting at $300 and would get minimal use from us. This leaves us with the problem "how do we separate wax from honey"? The one thing we are good at here is temperature control so once again we bust out the crock pot and hookup a temperature controller holding a water temperature in the crock of 118F to keep our honey raw.
