    Default foundation mill

    Is there anyone who makes a foundation mill for 5.1 cell size? I know there are 4.9 mills, just didn't hear of a 5.1 yet. Thanks, John.

    Dan is correct, here is the link:

    Note that the bottom of this page has both 5.1mm and 4.9mm mills, priced at $2565.

    I may just buy the foundation at that price. I have had pretty good success getting package bees to draw 5.1 right away in foundationless frames, but I would like to start using foundation to minimize all the drone comb you sometimes get with natural comb. John

    Fat Bee Man sells them for $2000 for steel, $1300 for plastic. Check his site dixiebeesupply dot com.

    Or buy the mill directly from the mill maker.
