Brood box is same as before, just has Abelo embossed in it.
But different plastic top edge as the old types where a bit slippery when new and piled on top of one another.

I rigged up a make shift solar wax melter the other day from a wooden brood box and a double glazing panel...i lined the box with black rubber and insulated the outside..i give it a test run yesterday with three pounds of wax..here is the result from the underside..i think i might frame it.. :D

Looks good Steve! My solar wax melter isn't doing so great a job. I think it needs further modifications.
Hopefully I'll see something like what you have there soon!
Jazz I nicked the idea from Nigel and placed the contraption in the greenhouse..it warms up to just over 70C fairly quickly when there is no breeze on it..
