I trust this not finds you well. I went mad the other day and agreed to buy an Italian made solar wax melter. It was about half price on one seasons use. So I got it yesterday and it has been going this afternoon.
The capacity is a LOT bigger than the standard home made brocelli box. It takes two full pillow cases of frames and wax. The dead pillow cases catch the bits of bees etc.
It is slow, four hours of full Sun gave a little dribble of wax, but the wax was frozen to kick off with.
I think tomorrow afternoon will be a better indication. The wax coming through was a light yellow to a medium yellow and looks very clean.
I will post pictures tomorrow,
