    Re: Mike Palmer Nuc

    I take a standard deep and add a 3/8th to 1/2 inch divider and can still fit 5 frames in each side. It makes it a bit tight though. I think the idea to only place 4 frames in each half has to do with...

    Most forums have far more people that do not post than those that do. It pretty much creates a bias to the opinions shared. Final results is that even what you see clearly in a group such as this is...
