    im trying to make the top an bottom pieces for the robo vac....my tablesaw is toast....what i do have is a slightly taller than normal medium super that i made in mt first attempts at hive building...i dont use it cause i'd have to build speical frames just for it due to a violation of bee space....i can however take my skillsaw an saw the thing in half round ways an have 2 boxes maybe 3 to 4 inches deep....what are the depth requirements for the top and bottom pieces ???

    No "depth requirements" other than intake hose to bees fitting in. Vacuum seal and control control of vacuum is more important. Masking tape (for easy removal) and duct tape fix a lot of that.

    If you're going to use 2-1/2 inch hose to suck up the bees, the bottom section should be about 4 in. high. 2-1/2 to 3 in. deep on the top section.

    ok...very good...we had talked about it the other day Rast...my vac is pretty small an i dont think the hose is 2 1/2 inches....but then i wont be useing that hose either other than from vac to box....so i have to come up with a diffrent hose for the box to bees part...i gotta be careful before i go cutting holes in the box for a new hose...if its bigger than the vac. Hose then i'll lose vac pressure....i'd rather i control that at the air bleed myself...i have looked at yours an Iddees vacs several times G....an Rast exsplained his to me pretty well....i can do this with my skill saw...im confident an will post pics when im done....ummm....may still have to borrow your bee vac. Tho Rast........ima try for saturday on the okahumpka bees...did you notice some of them have a black dot on thier butt instead of bands.......hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Yep, that's what Glenna told me. You made a good impression on her. Thank you.
    She has a spectator/cheering section arranged for you also :lol: .
    I told ya, let me know what you want. And no, I didn't study their butts.

    Well the Palatlakaha Creek runs through it and then Yalaha. 2KD lives just past Wahoo.
    Gotta speak a little Miccosukee and Seminole/Creek to grow up here. :D

    Kejimikujic Park
    Ecum Secum

    Maybe not too strange, but here, you can go from Horneytown to High Point, on you way to Climax.

    It's a long trip, tho, from Dirty Ankle to Bath.

    we got a bunch of em....there were many differant tribes down here at diffrent times....if i remember it right the Seminole indians were johny come lately an mixed from diffrent tribes brought here by the government around the time of the ''trail of tears''....maybe even part of it....tamuken (ta-moo-kin) an calusa (ka-loo-saa.....im sure i didnt spell those right) are tribes that were here before the Seminole....i used to collect artifacts that got dug up on job sites...mostly stone hide scrapers, arrowheads, spearheads, knives an axeheads....some cobb pottery an pot shards with animals carved on them....i can make the stone points (an do for bow hunting) so collecting them was kinna pointless...an now the state made it illeagle to even touch an arrowhead laying on the ground thanks to the point poachers tresspasing an destroying peoples property...what crosses peoples minds when they see dollar signs is beyond me :/ lol...to us Perry those names sound funny....i cant even pernounce inuit names (are they inuit...cant spell that either) lots a J's an U's while we got the C's an E's
