Beekeeping Electric Wiring Embedder - Wax Foundation to Wired Frames Assembly Tool
This tool is designed to slightly melt a line of beeswax along the wires of frames and then reset. This effectively embeds the wire into wax foundation using a *12V DC electric power supply to heat the wires and then bond firmly between the foundation and frame wiring.
To use, press the wire onto the wax foundation using the 4 copper protrusions and then by pressing the switch button located towards the end of the embedder, apply current which will heat up the wire. Press for a short period, just enough to melt the wax, allowing the wire to merge into the wax foundation. Pulsing (pressing up and down quickly) the button can help prevent over-heating and melting all the way through the foundation. Once the foundation has melted onto the wire, release the switch and keep the embedder in place a few seconds longer for the wax to solidify. When the wax has solidified and cooled, the frame is ready to be placed in the hive.
*The transformer to provide the 12V DC power source is sold separately.
