UNCAPPER
« on: November 10, 2007, 09:14:27 AM »
I like raising Queens but my wife still wants me to to put extra hives out just for honey, she loves eating and selling it, I have been thinking of maybe getting a uncapper one day, the thing is they are so expensive, I was looking and the THE SIDELINER UNCAPPER and was wondering if anyone has bought one and what do you think about it?

At that price it should come with a motor.

cowen has a small one called the handyman, its only $2166.00, or the big one for over $6000.00, think I might not want to spend more than thousand not running 100 hives plus..

what's wrong with a hot knife?  it can't be any slower than a machine.  maybe a little messy, but way cheaper!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
