    Thanks to all for the information. I ended up picking up a 12.6V 3A transformer from Radio Shack. Worked great.
  13. Re: Should I super a queenless colony that is full

    Re: Transformer For Embedding Device

    I picked up a transformer from Radio Shack. 12.6V 3A was what they had in stock. You just have to make sure that your transformer is rated for 2A or so.

    Re: Electric Embedder

    Thanks. I'll give that a try. I'm hoping to pickup something locally to save some money/shipping fees.

    Re: Electric Embedder

    Ah, you might be correct. This one is rated for 16V, 10VA. Which, if my electronics math is correct, is only .625A.

    Thanks for all the advice. I am seating the eyelet into the wood with 2 taps of the hammer. Sounds like the tool might be just a little too big. Maybe I'll try filing it down just a bit and see if...
