Making a Frame Wiring Jig
Date(s) - June 11, 2017
Time - 11:30 am - 3:30 pm
This is a third-party event not organised by Permablitz. We've added it because we reckon it looks pretty good!
Location - Collingwood Children's Farm Apiary
Each participant will construct a device (see above photo) that allows wire to be easily inserted into a standard-sized wooden Langstroth frame and then tensioned.
Construction will occur in the equipment shed at the Collingwood Children’s Farm apiary. All construction materials and necessary tools will be provided. At the end of the workshop participants will take home the device that they have constructed.
Participants will need to bring a wooden frame of the size that they will be using for their wiring jig, together with the spool of framing wire that they will be using with their jig. This will enable the rig to exactly fit their frame and spool.
The fee for the workshop is $40.
A BBQ lunch is included in the workshop fee.
Registration and payment can only be made through Eventbrite and needs to be completed by 11:30 pm on Sunday 4th June 2017.
Workshop cancellation will be accepted two weeks before the commencement date of the workshop and will incur a cancellation fee of $10 with the fee balance being refunded approximately five days after the workshop. Cancellations within two weeks of the workshop will not be entitled to any refund.
There is a limit of six participants for this event. It is not suitable for children.
