The machine under review is fixed by means of two fixing elements onto the edge of the board on the honey tub. The positioning locks three operational positions, depending on the model of the honey tub. The guides are adjustable, depending on the widths of the honeybombs, from 25mm to 36mm.

It is not necessary to drill holes in the honey tub.
