Ed... did you make these nucs?
Yes you can get 14 out of a 4x8 sheet
What size is that 1.5 inch? They make a grey and a blue board that are denser than the pink. I' m wondering if the bees will chew it? Nice job....I thought that they were bought until the question was posed.
Nice job honeyman!
And don`t you guys call me a sissy for useing pink or I will hit you with my purse, and "Menards" only has pink so there :D
Nucs for a dollar
What did you use to cut it with? They look so professional!!
I've tried cutting 2" stuff (contractor grade- hubbys a carpenter) with a long kitchen knife as well as a sheetrock knife. Maybe cutting the 1" stuff is easier? The sheetrock knife made too large of a cut and it was sloppy. The sharp knife made a nice smooth cut but it was hard to keep it going straight. The last thing I tried was my table saw - which at first was cutting wonderfully then all of a sudden it started catching it and ripping it out of my hands, causing the foam to rip as well (not to mention dangerous). Later I realized that the blade was heating up and "melting" the foam onto the blade, so maybe if I wouldve given it a break every so often it wouldnt pull??
I already cut out wood to make about 8 baby nucs but I like the foam ones too.
I cut them with a table saw and radial arm saw, yes slow is better so you dont heat the blade'
Camera makes things look better :D
Did you make the frames yourself?
