    I bought a 5 gallon compressor at Harbor Frieght several years ago. I've used it with a roofing nailer, staple gun, brad nailer and framing nailer. It's worked great. I have used it some for spray...

    Re: Size of frame sides

    I found some at a local Ace Hardware. I wasn't thinking bees when I bought it, but it was a 3' x 25' roll. It's been a year or so, so I don't remember what it cost.

  15. Re: Just starting and question about brood boxes

    From reading here I think it would be better for me and my comfort zone to purchase nucs to get started. At least in my thinking, and I know that is open for debate. So if I purchase these nucs,...
