    Hi Clinton -

    Dadant sells 4.9 wax foundation that will fit wooden frames. There is a web
    page that gives an explanation for its use, which you may have already seen.

    It is only sold in one size, 8-1/2" x 16-3/4", so you will have to decide
    how best to use it for your operation. If you are using deep frames
    (9-1/8"), then this size will fill the frame. I use all medium frames
    (6-1/4") so I would just cut the foundation sheet in half and let the bees
    finish pulling the comb beyond the foundation.

    There is a series of photos showing one way to wire frames that might help,
    but the copy is has not yet been added.
