    we had some real , real old brood combs that came with equipment that we bought that had 1/2 thin hardware cloth used as foundation.we also had some that used embossed aluminum sheets.we bought some equip from a old timer in VA that used 1/2 plastic bird netting for foundation.piercos work a whole lot better!out of the box and into the hive.The cost of your labor is not worth the material savings.

    Nick,
    Thanks for the reply. Figured it'd been done, not familiar w/ piercos, commercial foundation ? I'm building 18"x36" frames for AZ hive, also curious to compare comb build rates w&w/out foundation.
    Cheers,
    Drew
