This foundation mould was designed and made locally by me for the hobby beekeeper who wants to produce foundation from their own wax knowing its provenance. With so many bee disease remedies being used it’s good to know what could be in your own unadulterated wax!
The mould is silicone based, simple to use and low cost. There is no requirement to make flat sheets first – casting is direct from melted wax. Having sold almost 200 of these over the past four years (in the UK and worldwide) I have had 100% feedback. The kit comprises a tray, a silicone mould with two hexagonal embossed sheets in register and two cutting templates – one brood and one super size as seen in the photograph.
