    Now the big...
  6. Re: Why does everyone think used equipment is ALL bad?

    I set a policy in our operation almost 30 years ago.
    "We do not bring in ANY used equipment".
    Hive equipment is WAY too inexpensive to bring in used stuff.
    Also, I am very particular and specific...

    Everyone just loves to stand around and belly-ache about politicians.

  12. Re: Respirator suggestion to use with Easy Vap

    I didn't say anything against 3M or any other brand.

  13. Re: Respirator suggestion to use with Easy Vap

    OSHA finally mandated a Respirator Protection Standard for industrial workers in 2005, and it's obvious to see why.

    Re: Foam filled tires

    Re: Foam filled tires

    Just curious:

    Re: Introducing a laying queen

    This threat brings back memories of a thread several years ago.

    Re: OAV, putting the risk in perspective

    Grainger has a sale on OG / acid gas canisters for Honeywell North respirators for $11.70 a pair.
