    Always looks for a way to reduce shipping costs IME. Saved me almost $60 on my last order compared to what the website estimated.

    I've always had good deals with Mann Lake. They get 90% of my yearly expenses.

    I've bought some from their bargain room and have been happy (now if they would just have a child size honey maker suit in there)

    I have bought from them before, loved the service and products. But I stopped due to the fact of the shipping costs. I have been using Brushy Mt which ships to me cheaper.

    I have had a range of exeriences with Mann Lake, mostly good. I don't believe overall the quality is as good as Dadant, especially veils, smokers, and gloves. Do not buy the budget bee gloves if you are going to do much work in them. Overall the service is good although they once left me waiting several days for cell cups because they were out of the color that I told them I preferred and they weren't able to get ahold of me so they just did nothing. It should be pointed out that while Mann Lakes frames are a bit cheaper their foundation is a bit higher. Mann Lake maintains that theirs is better but the Dadant plasticell has worked very well for me.

    We too have had good luck with Mann Lake. Last year when we bought our extractor from them they filled it with the rest of our order to save us a little on the $200 shipping charge. Nice people to deal with.

    I have purchased a few items from B&B and we also book all of our syrup through them. Can't say anything bad about them they have been very accomodating to me.

    OOPS honeyman got me thinking and I stand corrected it was the Dadant lighter weight gloves we were unhappy with glad to hear the Mann Lake ones are good, I may have to try some. I think their veils are good just not as good as Dadants and I must also say that I have not tried the new Mann Lake smokers with the yellow bellows they might be all right I am guessing that they made some needed changes.
