Got some equpiment built!!
« on: February 04, 2017, 08:09:47 pm »
Thanks Bobmac, those plans helped.  I found out my buddy/neighbor had a table saw so i borrowed it, i need one now!!!!

Built 6 nuc boxs, and 4 bases and tops for swarm traps.  This way i dont have to touch a hive body...  just pick it up and put it on a real base board when bees are settled...

Pics wont upload because they are too big...  but with the nucs i modified things a little, i left the bottom board longer to have a landing board in front of the opening, and i modified the top lid, i just have a straight ply wood lid, the two drop down pieces that would normally attach to the lid to hold it on, i nailed them to the box to double has handles to pic up the nuc boxs...  lid stays on fine with just a rachet strap.  Handles were more important to me...  just need to paint it all now.
