front and back tipping with fish weight scale.
establishing the total weight of hive.... less the weight of beekeeper and his large boots.
So if you're told you need 60 lbs of stores, how much do you deduct for the woodenware, wax, foundation, and bees?
as your correctly deduced you need some idea of equipment empty weight prior to beginning. for my home made boxes, tops and bottoms + frames at a story and a half mine came out to about 32#.
first you will notice that my bottom boards are made very flat... there is no landing boards. we then plotted total weight against tipping weight... did a little statistical hand waving and 2.4 X the tipping weight yielded the total weight.
I see you attract a crowd where ever you go. Thanks for the pictures.
yep srv-fan... it cause I speak moo.
Big Bull interested too!
