OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES FORUM / Re: Gold prospecting using a metal detector
« Last post by Lesgold on Today at 01:08:02 am »
Another good day out in the bush with my detecting mate. We wore waders and made the effort to check areas that were difficult to detect using our standard attire. The two bigger pieces were found in large pools of water. The size and number of nuggets is dropping away. This is to be expected and won?t change unless we have a large flood come through. We are still extremely happy with the gold that we are finding. Days like this will soon become a rarity.

Said one of the six Marines he saved that day. >Not a day goes by when we don?t think about Charlie.<

Most of what I am doing takes only a short period of time. Large, complex engraving jobs could take a couple of hours but the beekeeping stuff that I make generally takes anywhere from a minute to 30 minutes. From memory, the comb honey frames take about an hour for 32 pieces to be cut.

Saw Low Bush Gallberry in bloom today. High Bush Gallberry has small buds.

Les,
With my Creality Ender 5 Plus, prints can take hours, and in some cases days to print. This means it gets unwatched for long periods of time. How long are your longest prints?

Fire has not been an issue but it could potentially be a problem if you used incorrect settings. It has its own built in air system and a fire warning setting. I make sure that when in use, I keep an eye on what is happening.

A few months ago I bought a cover for the engraver. It comes with its own built in extraction fan and flexible tubing. I now duct the air out of a window in the workshop. It works well. The cover also protects the unit from dust which is potentially a problem. I recently made a portable table to hold the engraver. It is on wheels which means that I can move it close to a window when I want to use it. I will photograph the device I made to hold ducting in place in the window opening.

I don't know if they're a gentle crew or if it's normal but I can sit on the wall right next to the hive and supervise them without getting harassed.
It's very normal, especially for a hive this small.  As long as you stay out of the flight zone, most hives will just go about their work and ignore you.

And my nuc appears to be doing well. I found what I suspect is a SHB on top of the hive this morning and I whacked it but it doesn't make me feel good about them. Where there's one, there's more. They're drinking syrup like drunken sailors and have been bringing in pollen all day long. I see some stragglers coming in early, before others are going out. I expect that those are foragers who didn't make it in before curfew last night. I don't know if they're a gentle crew or if it's normal but I can sit on the wall right next to the hive and supervise them without getting harassed.
