    Default wanted: brass or copper coated frame staples

    Hi all,
    I used to be able to get some small frame staples from Walter T Kelley company. They were small staples (These are smaller and different than the hive staples) people used to use on frames ...They were copper or brass coated I think. Maybe 3/4 to 1 inch long and maybe 3/8 to 1/2 in wide. Do any of you know where you can get some of those at?
    Thanks

    What's the advantage of copper-plated staples?
    Banjos and bees... how sweet it is!

    Cool What is the advantage

    I suppose the advantage is avoiding rust...that is just the way they came from Kelley's.
    I make my own frames and I use them nailed under the frame end lugs. So the frame rests on the side of the staple. I got this idea from Dr Miller's book titled something like 50 years Among the Bees. It is a great book.
