    Default Cut Comb question

    Do/would you use 9 frame or 10 frame super for cut comb honey production?

    That is like the color of hives. Use what you are comfortable with. Nine frames, of course, will make thicker comb.
    If there was only one way that worked we would all be driving White Dodge Cummins 5500s!

    If you use the 4x4 plastic containers, only 10 frame. With 9 the comb is too thick to fit box.

    Thank you Mr. Palmer that was what I was curious about. I was unsure of package/size/weight "standards" so to speak.

    If you trim your frames to 1 1/4, you can get 4 more cuts of honey. The combs will be thinner and often very consistent in thickness.
