Jim if you get the dipping station going let me know. I would pay you to let me dip my boxes. I have 40 to start on tomorrow I normally use a 4in roller. I take a long 4x4 and put it on some saw horses. Then put the boxes through the 4x4 so you can just turn the boxes to get all four sides. On a nice day by the time I get to the end the first one is ready for the next coat.

Hi John,
The biggest hold up is I don't have enough wax. It will take a few more hives to get enough wax to do this. Right now Judy is using all of my light colored wax for candles. I will be keeping a look out for a dipping container.
Will you be at the meeting on Monday?
Jim

OK, great John.

Have you started to raise queens. Caught a swarm last week and it was full of drones.
