Hive World’s Stainless Steel Frame Wire:
- comes in a 500g economy roll to allow you to do plenty of frames per roll.
- Insert your frame wire horizontally on brood and extracting frames to hold the wax foundation firm. This will also help to brace it if you are extracting in a machine.
- It is a good practice to insert brass rivets into the drilled holes on the sides of the frame. This will prevent the wire from gouging or splitting the wood.
- To lengthen the life of your frame wire you can use a wire crimper to tighten the wire when re-using the frame thus maintaining its holding power.
