It has been quite a while since I posted,
Here is the latest euipment I have made in-house for making the job of insemination quick and easy, she comes in the form of a 4D manual micro manipulator.
I made this over the fall and winter season from partly recycled and new materials, she has a ration of 5 - 1 and is ultra fluid in its motion, right now I am practicing on fixed targets to get used to how it moves and the early signs are very promissing indeed, I can move in, in one motion to the target of less than half a millimeter and she stays exactly on targetwhere one stops.
I still have yet to develop the final version of the needle holding gear/magazine which will also have an LED indicated plunger mechanism for making sure the final injection movement and depth does not penetrate too far into the host.
I am also working on an all new loop type sting hook similar in design to my earlier model using the oval eye of a fine sewing needle,
Thanks for looking
This was an excellent thread, but with all of the pictures not showing up, it has lost a lot.
Does anyone have the pictures that was used through out this thread?
Very nice setup Mr T, also much cheaper than the current standard euipment which should help newcommers into the craft, keep up the good work.
I am in the process of making/getting help in making some II equipment.
Has anyone got experience of this syringe, it looks to be the same as the Sue Cobey Harbo but cant quite make it out on the pictures. Or has anyone found a good alternative? Seems false economy to save on one of the most important parts of this system.
It has £40 off until tomorrow.
I produce the artificial insemination device myself. from beginning to end. In the workshop. prices are very cheap. If you are interested, please contact us. both as a set and as part of the sale available.
Welcome to Beesource kbayture! Nice work. If you can post prices in U.S. Dollars, we'd like to see them.
Kbayture, your attachments make your post an offer to sell in my opinion and therefore needs to be posted on our for sale forum. The pictures are quite blurry so the images need a higher resolution. You may post a link to a website that has photos and prices of the items you wish to sell. I hope you do because I am interested in your merchandise also.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
I will consider your suggestion. Now I'm sharing there. thank you
Have you bought the micro despenser? I asume you took the 0.2ml?
Swienty has the same microdispenser on their Harbo syringe.
Thanks for your help.
