Am starting to get the gear ready to attempt making a few queens. I think grafting is out for vision and hand steadiness reasons. I have made a very sharp and thin cell punch from a 300 Win. Mag shell casing and have a frame with holder bars made up. I am thinking to set the cell plug directly onto the bar rather than go with removable adaptor bases though I do have them if the acceptance is good with my cell punch out. I have a wireless fresh wax foundation nearing fully drawn and I have my breeding colony getting used to an upper entrance. I have a Cloake Board made up which I can use to tell me which deep the queen is in without having to find her. (queen finding makes me Mad....... not angry, Mad!) It also allows to easily make the cell starter part of the colony queenless. My son uses it in conjunction with the Hopkins Method. I think I may use a strong five frame hive to finish off started cells so I dont interrupt my donor hive too much. It is a pain that it has three medium supers up top to move every time I go into the brood boxes.
