marking my new hive with my Reg number


Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

I have my first four hives :).

 

I am looking for a branding iron. To burn the number onto the boxes.

 

Does anybody know who sells it.

 

Thanks.

 

Try @Russ he makes numbered branding irons. Best used before a box has been dipped and definitely before it is painted on the outside. You also need to think about how you will heat it, a fire will work, or a gas burner. Enjoy.

My apiary is in my garden, so I made as apiary sign with brass letter-box numbers. One beek told me it was the "flashest damn rego sign [he'd] ever seen".

@Trevor Gillbanks Here you go .. Getting better at it!

I have purchased two off ebay. Name and number. Brass. We are hooking them onto a lpg gas line. First one was from Itally $180. Second from China $80 with delivery. This second is advertised as hook onto a soldering iron.

 

Thanks.

Hi, Any chance of a photo of the two you got? How long did you have to wait for them? and do you know if anyone in NZ does something like these. Thanks.

This smaller one came from Italy. It took about 5 weeks to arrive. Ideal for branding plastic gear. The China one has not yet arrived as ordered a few weeks ago. This one is going to have the brass plate 20x80mm with our name and number. Im hoping the teeth are deeper for branding the timber boxes20160727_134959.jpg.d37ba2789ad46438ac2290cf50be71b8.jpg
