Although it’s not quite Flow related, I finally put together a new extractor and put it through its paces with a box of Ideal frames that were ready to come off a hive.
The extractor is a 4 frame Lega (manual) which was purchased from Becs Bee Hive in Victoria (importer of Lega equipment).
Lega website is here http://www.legaitaly.com/en/
The design of the cage is nice because it allows two ideals to be placed on each side providing enough space for 8 Ideal frames to be extracted at the same time.
Also took this opportunity to use an Idler Wheel (uncapping wheel/roller) for the first time instead of a hot knife… and I must admit… it’s not a bad option (and perfect width for Ideal frames)!
