Ngaio left this comment, which deserves more air:
"Shame about the extractor, I brought one today, along with a great amount of bee gear from a dear friend who has to give up his hives after 60 odd years due to failing eye sight. Bernard had made this 4-sided machine operated extractor and its a dream to use - will post pics after extraction of first frames for this year, during the week."
Ngaio is down under (or up over, depending on your world-view), so we enjoy contrapuntal summers.
