I get a laugh from alot on ebay.
Recently(now), someone is paying $5.50 for ten USED frames. Someone else is paying $5.49 for ten frame spacers. It seems that people like paying more than book price for used equipment. That also makes me laugh.
One guy right now is selling the plans to build bee equipment by "selling" the e-mail address to a site that he (the buyer) can then download the plans. I know one guy regularly sells plans, that could be downloaded for free if known, but this takes it one step further. I wonder if they are selling the adress to this site???
> I wonder if they are selling the adress to this site???
Actually, I have already caught one lady selling the plans from this site on a CD for $10. Thanks to an honest individual who unknowingly bought the CD and saw the copyright on the plans and contacted me, I was able to take legal action. It's impossible to keep tabs on this kind of stuff so I wouldn't be surprised if this lady, or others, are still doing it.
Then there are those selling bee products like royal jelly http://www.beealive.com/index.cfm?fu...&catID=1#faq_5 and telling the consumer what?

Looks very familiar!!!!
Did we ever figure out what a "Super Dumping Board" was?
Would there be anything illegal if I created
an ad on ebay charging $.01
and putting the URL in the ad?

Looks like an EXACT list of Barry's plans section of this board.

I never saw anyone post an answer. I know *I* don't know what one is.
Check this out, two assebled, unused, unpainted deeps currently at $26.
The individual cooperated fully and removed the ad. I may have to password protect all the files about next.
Super Dumping Board: I think best used for a white elephant gift. It obviously didn't amount to much but kept someone at the USDA busy for a while.
In defense of eBay, I gotta tell you that I got a log of stuff from them when I first started. My first smoker, veil, (2) entrance feeders, and a crimper cost me $9. I got my one-frame, hand-crank extractor in perfect operating condition--just needed a good cleaning--for $50. You just gotta know what the going prices are. By the way, I found the extractor in the "cheap chic" category--the lady was selling it as a "unique planter or yard ornament."
I agree, look around, look off season
and you'll see some deals.

Isn't that the board you put your super onto and push down to break free the frames for lifting out or dumping out onto the table?
No, that would be a "frame popper". Take a look in the plans section and see if you can figure out what a "super dumping board" is for. I tried.
The Burgess insect fogger illustrated in the above link starts @ 33.00 + 12.00 shipping. The regular price in Home Depot is less than the sum of the price and the shipping. You also have the brick and Mortar store to return to if it doesn't work.
I seriously doubt you can get one at the local HD for $45.
