Assembled foundationless frames

Got out my Brushy Mountain frame jig yesterday and put together about 50 Kelly Beekeeping foundationless frames. I’m going to try and go this route so I’m not using the same wax frames year after year. I had realized that some of my initial hives had the same frames in the bottom deep over 5 years!! Those got slimed least year during my Beetle Mania battle. Judging from the amount of comb one of my packages made in the empty deep that was protecting the syrup I don’t think that building foundation on an empty frame will be a problem.

The “problem” will be keeping them in a straight line when they are initially building the comb. I’ll post some pictures after the install as they progress.
