Using two hive butler totes, this combination provides an upper tub with a screened bottom for draining cappings and slots in which to hang the uncapped frames until you’re ready to extract them. A frame with a spike in the center is also provided to make uncapping easier. This is placed over another tub that collects the honey draining off of cappings and frames which can be drawn off through the honey gate. A solid lid can be snapped on top to keep bees and dirt out until you can clean up the mess.
