Homemade wax extractor

2015-04-25-17.41.10.jpg

I got this idea from Tim Rowe while watching one of his videos. Its basically just a blue barrel with a hole drilled in the bottom and the lid. I put all the old frames and wax I had into an old pillow case. The pillow case is hanging off the side of the barrel and held in place by the lid and weight. Then I filled up the steamer for the wall paper remover and pushed the pipe into the lid.2015-04-25 17.41.10Then after a few minutes the clean wax started to drip out. It will need to go through again in a cleaner pillow case and should be pretty well filtered.Its simple and works :-)
