About this item
I am very pleased with the uncapping plane - you will need to put on it a UK plug - check your wiring , the item is from the Boston area of America , it is a sturdy bit of kit and for someone who has got sick of fiddling about with knives or uncapping forks , great quality cable , solid wood , nice piece of US engineering - note the spare parts are available It works but watch the video and do not leave on for 5 mins unattended and not in use you will over heat it . Was it worth £130 - £150 yes
I have to say the service end of the company was a bit hit and miss , saw the plain on the web site , saw an add in the BBKA mag that there was an extraction sale so waited til 28th May , no sale on website , phoned asked if they were running the extraction sale , sale went up that day , ordered RH plane off website , got phone call 2 days later out of stock , will be here in 10 weeks , then a second call 10 working days , 10 days later I phoned up , had not come in with that stock , when would the next order be in may be a month they did not know exact dates , (bearing in mind I have supers of honey to extract ready to go back on for the Balsam ) decided that I was pretty ambidextrous so asked if the LH plane was in stock , office team member went over to the warehouse (thank you ) , yes it was there , I said could I possibly add to that order but I couldn't as the paperwork would be too difficult to find , wanted to order MAQ strips so they all came out in that order but that wasn't possible . (fair enough they had got the plane ready)It arrived via Royal Mail signed for 2 days later , extraction commenced
a very easy and pleasant transaction, thank you
