Little Man’s Pit Party

The extracting space continues to take shape. I’m looking forward to having the honey flow soon. In the meanwhile, my son decided the pit for the sump tank is a good place for his personal workshop:

We still like to melt the cappings rather than spin them, so here’s the new melter unit. It’s a Kelley model known for being a little touchy, but it produces very high quality wax blocks:

Now I just need to get the rest of the equipment lined up and connected. We also have an old uncapper stand that still needs blasted and coated–that will probably be the last piece of equipment to bring in before the hot water plumbing is possible. It will be pretty awesome when those wires coming out of the wall and ceiling are actually hooked into the equipment and ready to roll.
