The Natural Progression of Things
« on: September 07, 2021, 05:53:41 pm »
Even at sub 10 hives, OA wands are a pain in the butt.
I started out with a wand, then converted it to a receiver hitch electrical plug,






then changed it back to clamps with a small 12v/20Ah battery, which was light and worked just fine.




The part that was the worst for me was the inconsistency in my hives. Some were bought here, some were bought there, some were made by me?round entrances in nucs had me shimming frames and flipping the hive upside down and treating it inverted. I had several types that didn?t work well with the wand. There have been lots of scorched frames and the end (pan) of the wand falling off in the hive. Once retrieved I could set it back with a nail set punch, but it only lasts a while before the heat loosens things up again.

Well, I did a thing I knew was coming, I just didn?t know when. I rode over to Beez Needz today and,? I think I can pretty consistently drill a 1/4? hole.

Good vaporizer. We have a member here 'Rast' that makes oxalic vaporizers on the same principle as the Provap 110 (as pictured), similar to the one JohnO use to make, for a fraction of the price of the Provap 110...At least he was making them last I heard...
I learned this from Old SteveO   youtube channel "Steve's Outdoor World"

For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Yep still do.
