BSBA November 2023 Meeting
November 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
All are welcome.
This month’s program is Making Equipment by Steve Keller.
“When I started beekeeping I bought all the unassembled equipment and put everything together myself. That first year I found myself needing other odds and ends like shims and entrance reducers that are very easy to make. Since then, I have started to make all my equipment except for frames. Currently I make swarm traps, medium and deep boxes, inner covers, top covers, bottom boards, hive stands, entrance reducers, escape boards, etc. After making one or two of something I always start looking for ways to make things easier and better. I have made jigs to help with the box joints, box frame rests, box handles, frame assembly, etc. I will be presenting a PowerPoint showing some of the tools and jigs I use to make my equipment. I will also bring several of the jigs with for you to look at. This will be an interactive discussion. If you make your equipment and have any jigs or techniques, please bring to share.”
