    Default Nick Lissaman - Acorn Beekeeping Equip

    I guess Nick and Pierco have parted ways. There is an ad in the Oct Bee Culture for Acorn Beekeeping Equip. It gives Nick as the contact. I have been buying from Nick at Pierco the last three years. Anybody got the inside info on this deal?

    I really want 6 1/4" drone frames (not wax comb) -- his ad is the place I have seen them.
    Any one know any other source?
    Any news about AcornBee ?

    I'd like someone to make some ritecell-type 4.9 inserts... the drone/honey cell inserts would be cool also...

    I priced having these made in china, but I'd be looking at 50k+ for the injection mold.. LOL, that would be a lot of foundation to offset the tooling cost.

    Assuming that Nick is making his own stuff now.. I wish he would have closed all the SHB holes on the border...

    One of the main reasons that I use wood/plastic is because I have enough problems with the little bugs without getting them little condos to live it...
