Frame Wire Stainless Steel 500g
$13.00 Excluding GST
Hive World stocks 500g rolls of Stainless Steel Frame Wire used for wiring your wooden frames ready for wax foundation.
Wooden frames should always be wired horizontally to provide a strong framework for brood or extracting frames in which wax foundation is to be used. We suggest you use our brass frame rivets to protect the wood from gouging when wiring up your frames. Our crimp tools will tighten the wire as good as new so you can re-use your wired frames again and again.
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.
