Re: DIY Frames
The wider top bar prevents the bees from drawing the comb off of the bottom bar and across the top of the frame below. Yours don't look too narrow to me, but you may experience them connecting frames together. Nice work by the way.
My question is this. Since my top bars are narrower than standard will this cause me problems that I'm not thinking about. ( the ends are standard 1 3/8 so spacing is the same) It seems that the only real difference would be in uncapping the frame that the knife would cut a bit more wax off the cells by 1/8th. I guess that also the frame could be slightly weaker but i'm not sure that is really an issue.
