    Are any of you buying equipment from Swienty? Or is any retailer importing Swienty products into the US? I suppose shipping costs would make it pretty unfeasible, but every thing they make sure seams nice and innovative, and itÂ’s a nice change to page through a catalog and not have the majority of it devoted to gimmicky hobbyist toys.

    I have purchased from Swienty in the past, and liked their product, it did take awhile to arrange the purchase however, as there was some confusion as to what the actual size was converting from mm to inches. One of the major bee supply houses carries Swienty products, i'm not sure which one it is though. I'll look and see if I can locate the correct company.

    People at Swienty tell me that they cant find a retailer in Canada to sell their product.? But they have a few in the US,
    Not sure why, perhaps they are just establishing a North American market.
    And no wonder, cant find anyone in North America that provide the packing products Swienty does.

    Sorry about the "gimmicky hobbyist toys" remark, its untrue and must have been the Sunday night blues that put me in a bad mood that evening. With that said there is something inspiring about seeing inseminators, queen cell incubators, and commercial foundation mills
