    Default 8 frame box

    Can any one tell me the measurements for an 8 frame box, I have the teaching hive from "Brushy Mountain" and it is 8 frame but it has enough room for 9 frames.

    Mine are 20x14 on the outside. They do not fit 9 frames.

    Brushy Mt and Miller Bee Supply make them 13 3/4". Mann Lake and Betterbee make them 14". Niether will quite make 9 frames, but they are very close. If you shave a little off the end bars of each frame 9 fits nicely.
