Another object of the invention is to provide a
tool that can be heated so that it Will melt a
wax foundation and press it into engagement
10 with a honey box.
A further object of the invention is to provide
I5 in plug I4 and is adapted to heat the head
portion I0.
The face portion 22 of head I0 is offset at 22',
the offset portion Z2' being adapted to engage
against one side 23 of a honey box or frame 24
as shown in Figure 2 and being adapted to press
against a wax foundation 25 to simultaneously
melt the foundation 25 and press it into engage
ment with side 23, the heat being supplied the
portion 22’ by the element I9. ’I'he offset portion
22’ is approximately, in Width, half that of any
