    Not to collect but to actually use, I'm looking for the device that folded the little wooden boxes that are used for comb honey. Kelley's still sells the supplies and I love how the product looks, but I hate folding and gluing those boxes one at a time by hand. If anyone has one or the plans for it I'd love to have one!

    They would be easy to build. One long board; 2 boards, half as long, hinged to the ends of the long board; 2 angle blocks to trap the basswood section, and two springs to return the hinged boards up. Put the section in, press the boards down, release.

    Old items that were mass produced do not draw a high value. If you have multiple old items that were not mass produced it is better to keep it a secrete that you have more than one because as the quantity goes up the individual price goes down.

    Denis,

    Some of these smokers may date to the 1960's, aluminum smokers were sold as far back as the late 50's. The Aluminum smokers might be of interest to collectors because aluminum burns out quickly and few examples of this type of smoker may exist. A smoker collector, -perhaps -Paul Jackson could give you an appraisal of the value and historical perspective on the smokers. But if you are interest in selling them, the best place to do this is on Ebay, with the rise in in popularity of beekeeping there is a growing interest in collecting beekeeping artifacts, competition in this area is growing and some are willing to pay foolish prices for such things.

    Best Regards,
    J. Waggle
