    Plastic and wooden nuc boxes. The plastic ones are not very good dimensions, in my opinion, but are nice stiff plastic. The handles are handy except they get in the way of fitting five frames in.

    I don't know if any of these are what you're looking for.

    Thanks for the help ! the one I was looking for looks like the one from Mann Lake,the portable plastic nuc box. But it is not exactly the same.. the one I was trying to find Is a yellow color and it had no handel on it.and I think it was ahout $5.00 or more LESS than Mann Lake.. maybe this will jarr someones memory... Thanks, MIKE !!!!

    I think Brushy Mt. has the same one as Mann Lake. I don't remember a yellow one. MDA splitter makes a gray plastic one that fits much better but is a bit to flexible, and a plain cardboard one that is stiffer. The cardboard one is about $5 each if I remember right. But MDA's web address doesn't work anymore.

    Their link doesn't work and I've lost their address. The ones from Dadant are the same thing only wax coated instead of plastic. They don't weather well. They are waterproof but by the end of a season outside they are a bit warped.

    Maybe someone has their address or maybe I'll find here somewhere. I've purchased the plastic ones (they were grey) and the plain cardboard ones from MDA directly before.
