I did as Mykeal suggested and got hold of the extension service.
They turned me on to the head man in the largest bee keeper's association in the region.
He was on his way to a conference (about keeping bees) but he arranged to let me come over when he gets back (next week)
I will be charging what he calls the national rate which should be somewhere around 2.00 to 4.00 a pound for wax that will need to be filtered.
I'll probably get about five pounds which should keep me in lube for a while.
We shall see.
