Frame Wiring Kit for 100 Frames
Building cross wired wooden frames is part of traditional beekeeping! A cross wired frame is strong and keeps the foundation straight. We feel using support wire and wax foundation may have the best acceptance by the bees compared to other foundations and supports. This kit includes all you will need to begin wiring and installing your wax foundation. Our kit includes instructions, tools, and the equipment needed to cross wire and install foundation for 100 frames. (Frames and Foundation not included)
Embedding Board: Used to support the foundation while embedding the bee wire.
Bee Wire: Thin wire for supporting foundation.
Eyelets: Inserted into the holes along the sidebar of the frame to keep wire from cutting into wood.
Eyelet Punch: For pushing the eyelets into the side bar holes.
Crimper: Used to tighten the crosswire before embedding.
Nails: To secure both ends of the bee wire per frame.
Embedder: This is used to embed the cross wire into the wax foundation.
