This is how I make mine and I do have a notch (3/4x5/16 deep)
There is plenty of room in a 5 frame nuc (I put one in yesterday) Mike Bush likes to start them in a nuc but I will say keep watch on them so they dont swarm, I may put mine in the Ohive
Wow I like that :thumbsup:

I keep a cardboard nuc box in the truck but also keep a deep or 2 because I have gotten swarms that would not fit in one deep.
First one for 2013 about 4 pounds of bees they stoped @ "Subway" :popcorn:46303

When they send you an email conformation for an order CHECK IT I just found 3 mistakes on a 10 item order, called back and they said it would be fixed glad I checked.
You guys keep talking and I will have to "pop" for a roll of Gorilla tape and I B cheap. :lpf:
The queen may not be mated:s and other things enter into the pic. soooo many things that can go wrong.
