    Question

    Is there a standard measuring method to determine the actual size of cells?

    I want to take some measurements of my various top bar combs and determine what size they are actually building for various purposes.

    It would seem that you could measure either the greatest or smallest dimension across the middle of the cell. may not make much difference but as long as i am going to do it i would like to do it as accurately as possible.

    Cheers!

    Hi David,

    The standard way is to measure across the parallel walls of ten cells and divide by 10. Start on the outside of the first cell wall and end up on the inside of the last cell wall.

    Regards
