.....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.....

Also join a local bee club, some members will help a newbee.  Used equipment you need to know if their bees are healthy, giving you equip from a hive that has something will not help.  There is a commerical beek in our club gave me 150 freshly extracted frames about 100 deep and 50 mediums.  At the time I didn't know what I do now, I stripped the all to the bare frame and put them in foundationless.

Drawn comb has it's value.    That's why we extract and are not cutting it out of the frames, mostly.   Word of mouth is the best way to find good used equipment.

Tom,
I would second the. Raigslist recommendation. Alastair year I found an add for someone offloading all their equipment.  I ended up with a truckload of equipment. My advice is to be diligent and watch on Craigslist because bee equipment goes fast. Second buy a torch and scorch any used equipment you buy to lessen the chances of unwanted critters.

P.s.  my wife loves garlic. If you are a garlic farmer I might be willing to trade equipment for garlic. PM me if your interested.
