    Question

    The thread on Manley frames got me thinking about the frames I was shown when picking up my woodenware. They were called Power frames. the sides where 1 1/2 inches wide top to bottem. The top and bottom pieces were the usual widths.

    Franz showed them to me when I asked him about making some 1 1/4 inch wide frames. He said they were for extracting honey.

    Is anyone using Power frames?

    panther passing ...

    Inlighten me please, I've never heard of Power's Apiary. I started this year with two hives. I've been reading quite a bit, but I haven't come across Power Apiary yet.

    hope I am gettin' this right, but I am operating on a slightly dated cpu and no backup.

    If you look into an old bee family and associates book there was a very large (I think at the time the largest) beekeeper on the west coast by the name of Powers. He was instrumental in modernizing a lot of cultural techniques for modern large scale application. I think he was a large part of the initial venture that would become the Kona queens company.
