    Both but I'm in the process of switching to only a slab of advantech subfloor with wedges on the sides for an upper entrance in the front. I initially cut my own wedges and it was a real pia and not...
  3. Re: How to store an empty hive for next year?

    The plan sounds reasonable to me BUT there may be 200 people that would handle this 200 different ways. Can't go any more wrong than things are now imo.

    Re: Applying glue to build deeps

    I have seen this and it looks good. I'm too cheap to believe it's a whole lot better than an acid brush though.
    I'd like to try one or hear from those that use one?
    Thanks

    Re: Embedder

    Embedder

    Just thought I'd show the embedder I use. It is cobbled together with scrap wood. I put two pieces of brass cut from shim stock as contacts on each end. The bottom has some foam silicone tape for...

    Re: Another version - frame building jig

    I was also considering a 20 frame jig but thought it wouldn't make much difference so I went with a 30. As I said I didn't time my work BUT I am willing to get crazy and say it is much faster. It is...
  11. Re: Getting seed from white clover productive?

    We don't get enough snow here to be dependable . I may have to wait years to be able to broadcast it over snow.
    I don't know if alsyke is the same as Ladino but I'll assume it is. I like the stand I...
  12. Getting seed from white clover productive?

    I have a bunch of Ladino clover I planted years ago. It comes up every year and is spreading. I'm wondering if I can take some dried seed heads and get more viable seed from it?
    I've looked online...

    Re: Another version - frame building jig

    For the deep frames you need to use two straps. The end bars are too long to be held firmly with just one strap. Also this jig separates into two jigs for doing medium (or shallow) frames. When I do...
  14. Re: First Cut Out | Need Advice From Experience

    I think there is a lot more to this job than a fancy IR camera can help with.
    Firstly what is on the floor? If it is carpet then this is BY FAR the easier way to get at the hive. That is IF you know...

    I added some tools to my frame arsenal

    In case others are looking for ideas I have added a few custom tools to my frame building arsenal.
    One is a brad "pusher" that I gutted and installed on a plastic screw driver handle. I also put a...
  17. Re: Found a great crimping tool for wiring frames

    Stainless is a waste of time and money as far as I am concerned. I don't even know where I got the roll of wire I am using right now. It is marked 1# which I guess means it is a pound of wire. It...

    I drilled 2" holes and I use the plugs from 5 gallon paint buckets that I scrounge. I looked for some specific plugs to purchase and the prices were crazy. These are free and they have that little...

    I took one of those aptitude tests too. The results indicated that I was born to be a coat hanger. About the same pay as beekeeping for me.
