We work with a local metalworker to create this functional, stainless steel solar wax melter, ideal for the backyard beekeeper. It holds wax cappings, burr comb or remaining bits of comb from crushing and straining honey. Solar melters work best with clean wax.
To use, lay wax on the mesh tray, put the clear Lexan cover in place, and prop up one end to create a slope. Then, put a flexible container filled with water below the wax drain hole and watch the wax flow!
On a 75°F degree day, the internal temperature may exceed 170°F.
Measures 20" x 18" x 7"
(Some assembly required. Just attach the feet with the provided screws and you're ready to melt some wax!)
