First test of the home made honey press

Today I pressed the first honeycombs in my home made honey press. I realized right away that the hole in the pan where the honey runs out is way too small. I removed the plastic spout but the honey is still very slow coming out. Now I have started this batch, I will press on until complete and open up the hole for the next pressing. Here are some photos that shows it all.

  1. Fantastic photos, Norman. Can I ask why you use the teak laths? Is it to stop distortion of the pan?

    I came here, by the way, from the Biobees site.
