12 and 18 Nucs
Inspected the nucs today and 10 from 12 are mated and laying nicely. Two are suspect and have test frames in to double check.

One that I thought I had a buyer for, who backed out when the fantasy offered to be reality, had a q cell so I have swapped it for a pretty weak one so as to cool it off a bit and boost the other one up. A win win.

When nucs are up and running they can be worked from with in their set as it were, with no need to hit on the production colonies.

I will run a set of pics for the making up of the nuc boxes I use.

Yes please -a piccie and some measurements would be gratefully received. I have looked at the video links regarding this but I have great trouble in following the actual measurements - let alone all the rather sophisticated tools that are used. I do manage a saw, hammer and screwdriver and willingness to learn and get one built:)
