Honey Stick Machine Update

With a change of jobs and being in the middle of bee season, I haven’t had much time to devote to much else, including working on the honey stick machine.

I have noticed however that Dunbar Honey Farm is now advertizing their honey stick machine in the American Bee Journal for $1900  (Phone 586-770-9953).  I suspect this is the same machine he had a year ago when my wife talked to him.  If so, it is a relatively manual system  that uses a specially made pump, a holder for a dozen or so straws and an impulse sealer.  It certainly beats filling them individually with a syringe, but isn’t yet the automated machine I’m hoping for (though I’m sure it’s far cheaper).  If anyone finds out differently please let me know.
