I'm building my first feeders and want to know if anyone has ever lined the inside of the tank with a layer of fiberglass cloth and resin. See any problems with that? After it's cured you can pretty much eat off of it.

Sounds to me like it will work just fine. Bee sure to seal the entire top side.

Thanks Jim. This is crunch time. Just ordered 500 frames and foundation. Some assembly required Smiley.

Just dip your feeders in melted wax....a lot easier.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Scott,
 I don't have any way to do that right now. The only thing I could do would be to melt in pour it in. Someday I want to be able to dip my hives. But right now the startup cost are too much.
