Old habits die hard

Home for retired beekeepers?
My least favourite task, extracting, is complete. The settling tank contains about 50lbs of honey. About twice as much again decorates the interior of the shed plus implements, my clothing and me. I tried using a paint stripper heat gun to pop the cappings. Fun, but ineffective, I found, and I resorted to knife-wielding violence. Old habits die hard.
