  • Infrared thermometer and stethoscope /ear to the floor. I almost always find exactly where they are. Not because I'm any good but because it's easy to do and I've done lots of removals.
    On your second question there are several answers but the two most important are as follows:

    1-bee hives die if they aren't managed. This is because of varroa mites. When they die the remaining brood, honey, nectar, wax and pollen become "food" for many different disgusting insects. The nectar and honey ferment and can easily migrate through the ceiling below. This is a 1.5 million dollar house and a ceiling that bleeds disgusting, fermented nastiness would be a huge problem as you can imagine.

    2. There is a liability and big concern from owners regarding stings, allergies etc.

Action could be smoother on some of the threads but you're not going to have things flying out or stuff windmilling round because it's so far off-centre.....unless you're still at my skill-level with a 4-jaw!
        The chucks I have are swedish made and good quality, but they are all so worn out. So I am not used to a remotely good chuck.

        • Went home for lunch at noon and there was a bitchin thunderstorm at 12:30, when I got back to the shop at 1:00 the power was out. The owner told everyone on the floor (5 machinists and 3 helpers) to go home, power is on at home which is less then 5 miles away.

          Because it was lunch time all of the machines experienced a disorderly shut down, it would take a while to check all of the machines for position when restarted.

          You never know where they will be after a restart (-:

          Winds above 40 Knots are rare in this area, when they do come they knock down all of the already compromised tree parts.

            I bought this 5" for my Vertical Bandsaw,it's been good but has never turned a revolution.It came with both Sets of jaws which I assume yours does too. Click image for larger version

            • Tundra Twin Track Hmmm, a chuck on a bandsaw eh? Do tell! I mean obviously it's for workpiece holding but I'm curious as to what. Cutting or splitting bar stock?

                Whatever job such a device will accomplish, nothing removes material as fast as a saw.

                • made a small tool tray for my bike repair stand. Been meaning to make one for years, but for some reason the other night was the night and I knocked it out in a couple of hours. Funny how that happens sometimes.
