Re: Grafting with aging eyes
I use the magnifier lens mounted on a headband that Harbor Freight sells. It came with 4 lens of different strengths and was reasonably priced. I found that not drinking my morning pot of coffee helps. I also graft from new comb built on plastic foundation that can be removed down to the plastic without disturbing the larvae, put it back in the hive and the bees rebuild the damaged spot overnight, then I wash out any remaining brood before it is capped and save the frame to be used again.
