Just wondered if anyone on here is into cell-punching ?
I had a go a few years ago, and the punching itself worked pretty good - but one problem I ran into was that the bees firmly glued the wooden 'mushrooms' I was using onto the cell-raising bars. This made it difficult to extract the individual q/cells without risking damage to them.
So - I've made-up another kind of frame, using Terry clips to hold the stalk of the 'mushroom' (old system in the foreground) :
I have no doubt that they'll glue-up that frame too - but hopefully not so badly as before.
