    Re: a little tip on sealing ply-wood boxes

    it also depends on where you live, on the north coast plywood does not last more than a couple years, in a desert area it will probably last 20.

    Re: Help with identification please

    looks fine to me, i think the darker colour seems to be just older wax that had had brood raised in it before, hard to see though i am looking at the pics on my phone.

  8. Re: Ideas for "in line" filter and "automatic" valve

    using oil in a heating system similar to this is quite common, i dont know why you would bother with a non industrial or large commercial tank but wax melting tanks that i have used have oil inside,...
