I could probly make 20 hives a day or so if I had one more person and worked hard. I already have all the equipment, and enough skill to build them. I will look, If it is cheeper to build my hives and buy my frames I will do it, or cheeper to build my own hives I will spend what I saved on factory frames.Hey! I make you shedule that you have objects!
20 hives = 6 boxes per hive = 120 boxes, 20 bottoms, 40 covers
in 4-5 places to transformed
10 frames per box = 1200 frames
frame sticks worked 5000 pieces.
1200 foundations smelted in
If you work 10 hours, you have 600 minutes.
If you 4 hours to frames and 4 hours to boxes, you have 2 hours left to another things.
It makes 5000 sticks 14400 sec 1 stick/ 3 sec
You have 12 seconds to make frame from board and wires, eylets and foundation. (clue not needed either eylets,)
1200 frames 240 minutes = 5 frames per minute from nothing to ready.
Are you sure that it is "job of USA citizen". I would give that job to China, Mexico, Malaysia or somewhere cheap work country. :shock:
Estonians make to us our frame stick. Their level of wages is 15% from us.
