  5. Re: 4 Nucs from 2 Hives over 2 weeks workable?

    I ordered the queens a while back, frankly before I had read and investigated this enough. On the other hand, I like the extra time gained dropping in queens provides. Next weekend we are having a...
  6. Re: 4 Nucs from 2 Hives over 2 weeks workable?

    I am a member. We actually had our nuc meeting last night. We covered a lot and I learned a lot, but had to leave before asking this question (hence the beesource thread). I'm not seeing as much...

    Peter is correct about Craig's List. I searched, looked at pictures, and went to see four that were in my price range. However, they were pretty beat and I was not comfortable with buying them. I...

    84 Lumber has excellent prices here in Hampton Roads. Also, Home Depot will beat local prices by 10% if you bring them the ad or a quote. I buy from both - it depends how far I want to drive and am...
  14. Re: Solar Wax Extractor - Has anyone built this one?

    Interesting use. So no lemon grass or similar? Do you have a high success rate?

    An eastern distribution center to cut down on shipping costs would probably increase sales.

    Does everyone use glass? I thought about using plexiglass in the lid instead to avoid breakage and safety, but was not sure now it would do with the heat buildup.
  17. Solar Wax Extractor - Has anyone built this one?

    Re: Does anyone use this Irwin dado set?

    I just started using these blades from Harbor Freight. I can't comment on longevity yet, but they've worked great thus far. Was not sure I could go wrong for $35 given the prices I've seen. ...
