JP, I have a couple questions. How do you perch the hive body on the bucket where you put the brood comb you cut out? Where do you keep the pail for the honey comb? This is a very small bucket, and there's no ledge or space to keep this stuff beside me. I was thinking I'd pick up some sort of clamp on table to attach to the side of the bucket for the hive body, and figure something out for the pail.
Also, how do you use a boroscope when you're wearing a veil?
Use some 2 x 4's and make a little shelf with the bucket railing, like this:
I put the viewing eye piece right up against the netting.
