The ladder is screwd on so ya . Would be able to change easy if the support brace wasn't added . Here's a pic of one done not sure the size boxes it is for . ,mine are made for 8 frame boxes. View attachment 10177I sure like the look of your feeder. I think I would build them and use the larger pan, how does the ladder attach? Can a person switch between large and small pans as they see fit? Please post a picture when you have the ladder installed.
It's the fatbeeman design you can look it up on the net for the instructions.I am using 2 gallon frame feeders and they are half empty every Saturday. So a gallon a week, the nice thing about yours would be pop the top off and fill it quick and easy and not cool of the brood chamber but I am thinking bigger would be better, you can always only half fill it if that's all your needing. Thanks for posting the pictures . I think some time in my workshop this weekend will be in order.
Very good point..Shouldn't these be called "less drown" feeders. I don't care how you make them. There are some bees that have this thing about committing suicide by syrup. No matter what you do there is always a portion of the hives that walk the plank to the sweet sea of death every time you feed....
