Nice instructable. I have been a bee keeper for a number of years now, might I suggest you look into a solar wax melter to render your wax. It does a beautiful job, no heating elements to worry about. You can use a couple of "throw away" aluminum pans over and over and a piece of paper towel as a filter that can be used as a fire starter when your done. All with the power of the sun.
I also have jalapeño,habanero, and Serranos a plenty this time of year. My wife and I cold smoke them first then dehydrate them. It gives them a wonderful chocolatey smell and smokey flavor.
If you also have a honeybee nest , might I suggest taking up bee keeping. Honey bee colonies should be managed.
