    Re: Down bee tree in a creek cutout

    I wonder about putting up a trap too. I checked a bridge and an old building that is near by but didn't find anything.

    Re: My Oxalic Acid Vaporizer

    Good idea on the inverter. I've put them on several vehicles but didn't think about one to run a vaporizer. When I get a little cash saved up I'm going to put an inverter on my truck so I will always...

    Thanks. I have been looking for some type of hive top feeder for the past month. This gives me a lot of ideas. I have been using the bucket feeders but I like something like this alot better.

    Sounds good. How much will a feeder like this hold? Can they be filled up to the top of the board that's under the screen?

    Cool design Crofter.
    Glad to hear that your healing well Daniel.

    Everything I have read says you can vaporize OA several times. Trickling can only be done once a year. Less is more on the...

    Re: Is it too late to do a cutout or trapout?

    Well, Tuesday I went to the house and did the cutout. Everything went pretty smooth. But I could not find the queen. There was very little comb in the wall. Only enough to cut and rubber band into 4...

    I don't know why but I am drawn to art work of the Maori fish hooks. I like to carve too.
    The glow plugs can be had at your local parts store or eBay. Autolite 1104 or Champion CH69.

    Re: My Oxalic Acid Vaporizer

    Looks like it might just work to be converted to a vaporizer.

    Daniel, I hope you heal quick. Take good care of yourself.

    Daniel if your lathe is 7x12 why can't you turn a 1 1/4" piece? Hole through the spindle 1"? I can't see what you trying to do but I was curious. I have noticed...

    Re: My Oxalic Acid Vaporizer

    Good info Daniel. Sound reasonable. The only thing I can think of that might make a small difference is OA is a compound, H2C2O4. Each one of those elements has a different vaporization temp but...

    Great info. The tips on most glow plugs are made from Inconel. Do a search on Inconel and you will find that is some pretty tough stuff.

    Re: My Oxalic Acid Vaporizer

    The off gassing of anything I think would be a concern. I'm just saying to please be careful. Some stuff in very small amounts can cause long term damage.

    Re: My Oxalic Acid Vaporizer

    I wondered if the tip touching the OA would hurt anything. I was actually going to experiment with that next week. It should cut down the times frames I have posted as it should vaporize a lot faster.

    The heat transfer grease may be a good idea. I'll have to do some research on it. I know some of my high speed flashlights have thermal grease in them.
