Wax Straight Swap

No Cash Straight-Swap.  You give us the beeswax - we give you the foundation.

The tables below show exactly (to the nearest quarter of a sheet) how many sheets per pound we swap.

For example, you have 10lbs. beeswax to "straight swap". You will use the top table. You want some BS Deep Wired and some Section Squares. You can decide; maybe 4lbs BS Deep Wired (that will give you 15 sheets), that leaves 6lbs. for Section Squares (263 sheets).

We work out to the nearest sheet, always higher rather than lower. Your wallet stays closed!!

We also provide a beeswax conversion service where we provide a lb. per lb. exchange of crude wax into refined foundation.  The beekeeper pays for this on a lb. rate to which we add a wiring charge if necassary.

Most beekeepers bring the wax into one of our four stores, however we will also accept wax through the post.  We also offer this wax exchange service at Bee Tradex, the Irish Convention, the Welsh Spring Convention, the BBKA Spring Convention and the National Honey Show.
