I thought I’d share my experimental no cost solar wax melter, inspired by @skeggley’s contraption.
I just used a pasta pot with a glass lid, placed a container in the bottom, and suspended some burr comb I had accumulating in a tub in the shed.
It worked. The end product is a bit unsightly, but I’m sure it can be melted again into a nicer smaller mould. The pasta pot stays clean and can still be used for cooking.
I like this because I’m just re-using and multi purposing things I already have.
Is there a good use for the byproduct (slumgum)? Can it go in the compost bin? Or maybe used as a fire-starter?
