    I will place two sheets of foundation in with 7 drawn frames. have the frames close to the foundation pushed tight to the foundation and space out the other drawn combs. That way I avoid running the 10 frame honey box, very annoying

    he is referring to newly drawn foundation that has had a brood cycle or two through it. That comb is much stronger than newly drawn wax
    Doubt there is any need for a reference on that one

    There was no mention of brood cycles... " Draw your new foundation in the brood chamber and then use it for honey supers".

    I'm just reading what's being written... and not making assumptions.

    It is hard for engineers. They assume everyone can think for themselves.

    Wow! Engineer Ace is saying he thinks for himself, but is implying that many of the rest of (non-engineers) are too stupid or helpless to think for ourselves.

    That must be why he took his valuable time (billable time, I'm sure) to educate us heathens about foundation.

    Ace is so good to us!
