"Jefferson, Yes, they are realty gentle. Sam's bars are the same length, mine are slightly wider and his box is slightly smaller. The differences will have to be measured they are so slight, I noticed because I work on them. The SV finger joint…"

You can call the house at 281-7851 and my wife or son should pick up if you start leaving a message about bees or queens. They will give you my cell. I would give you my cell but don't like posting it because of all the non-business calls I would get.
