    I actually like MannLake frames the best. But with shipping costs, I order from places I can pick up. I bought my last batch from Beeline Aparies in Bedford Pa., for .49 each and I picked them up. Can't beat that. When beeline started, they had a few issues. But they have worked that out and are much better now.

    Thanx for the "recommendation"

    I need to let everyone know . . . that at this time and maybe for the next couple of months, I am unable to accept (promise ship date) any more NEW orders.

    I've been overwhelmed w/ work (frames and "normal other stuff").

    Thanx to everyone!

    I buy exclusively from Dadant. I buy the larger quantities for the price break and drive over and pick them up to avoid any additional shipping cost. I am happy with them, however I wouldn't hesitate buying Walter Kelly frames based on all the positive comments I've read here on Beesource.

    I have bought my last two orders from WesternBee. They have had "specials" on both times I talked to them. Economy grade is fine by me, because I have seen only two frames so far that I would call a second, and the problems they had were both easy fixes....I would suppose that all manufacturers do a good job---it's only the pricing that seems to set them apart in my untrained eyes. Sometimes, you know I think that you are paying a portion of the cost for the name brand.
