    Default wood frames/ assembled/ which one

    I want to order 50 assembled frames with plastic foundation, I cant seem to find a difrence between most of the suppliers Mann Lake, Brushy Mountian, Dadant, etc. Any recomendations on which to buy from or stay away?

    I prefer unassembled frames, wedge top bar and groove bottom bar. I go foundationless however. I just ordered 400 mediums from Mann Lake and there was no shipping charges! Yeehaw!

    Last year I purchased assembled frames from Mann Lake; they are quite fine.
    This year I'll be assembling the frames, since I have free time.

    Check the thickness of the bottom bar on your choises(sp?). Tradition called for a 3/8 bottom bar, but there has been momvement twords a 1/2 bottom bar. I prefer tradition. Kelly just changed their top bar, it looks stronger, and they still have the 3/8 bottom bar.
