Yep, that?s it. Sorry that I didn?t mention the brand. The Speed King is actually the model.

I?m very happy with the knife. I may not have explained it very well. This knife does not overheat. It is actually very good. I did have a problem with the first one after about 5 years of use. The thermostat stopped working and it did overheat. It eventually burnt out. The new one runs quite cool and does not burn the honey or wax. Here in Australia, they are over $200 but from my perspective, they are well worth the money. I do keep a spare one and my old steam knife just in case??..

Looking back you explained it very well. I should have had my reading glasses on. I see the need of such more regularly lately! lol

I will delete my last reply as I do not want to cause unneeded confusion to the video maker, especially if he may be a member here. Thanks for you patience Les.

Pardon my ignorance but what is a "three inch, backward comb uncapper"?
It doesn't translate to anything known this side of the pond/world

Nigel that might not the the proper name. If thats the case please pardon me. lol  I will post a picture.. The idea is to drag the piece across the the comb in a pulling motion..

Not in my experience. This works like a plainer (if you will). It will miss the low places.
