Yes. but it will require my 20mm ring that I make. It will look pretty crude. I suggest getting the poly base if you are going to use poly hive, and get the poly lid. You can use wooden boxes for the honey supers on a poly hive. Size is all wrong really, so unless you are handy you may have an unsuccessful result.

Hi again, Trevor. Have you ever thought about putting together a video on how to harvest honey from a hive i.e. just basic beginner stuff, like equipment required, how to approach the hive, tips and tricks, etc? I know I would find it very useful to watch! Apologies if you have already made one, I've had a quick search but can't seem to find anything. Thanks. :)

Hi Jaybee. Yes it is on the list. I am harvesting now and there is about a box of honey on the demo polystyrene hive so i am leaving that for the video. I know it may be a bit late, but that is how it is unfortunately. Busy bees and busy beekeepers. Thanks for your comments.

another good vid, but my highlight was seeing that screw driver. I haven't seen one of those in years.

Yes, [USER=4078]@Josh Kempthorne[/USER] I love my big Yankee Screwdriver. I picked it up quite a lot of years ago and in more recent years (about 15 years ago) modified one of the bits to take a #2 square drive. Never runs out of battery power whilst in the field.

I inherited one of those screwdrivers from my grandfather. Unfortunately it came without bits. Replacement bits were expensive when I looked for them and consequently the driver has sat in a box unused.

Have you tried getting them from the USA. They still make Yankee screwdrivers. There are at least 2 different sizes. Mine is the large one.
