    Default are ML, Brushy mountain, and B and B 8 frame pieces interchangeable?

    To get the best prices, I was going to order my telescoping tops and unassembled medium supers from ML, my IPM bottom from Brushy mountain and my medium frames from B& B honey farm as they are half the cost of unassembled top and bottom Grooved as they are from ML or Brushy Mountain. But this inexperienced person does not know if all 8 frame equipment is interchangeable? The frames are all of supposedly equal grade.
    Thank you

    and if I'm wrong and ML has 8 frame IPM bottom, just correct me - I've looked all over the site.

    shipping can cost as much as the woodware. ML is free shipping over 100.00

    Yes, that is very true, but the frame from B&B is only .89c and from ML each is $1.50. They gave me the quote on shipping which is only $19, so a savings of $46 even with the shipping cost. They also sell the wax foundation for .30c per sheet less than ML.

    ML = 14" wide
    Brushy mountain = 13 3/4" wide
    B and B = 14" wide
    Miller Bee Supply = 13 3/4" wide
    Western Bee Supply = whatever you want

    That comes to 1/8" on each side. You can stack boxes of both sides on top of each other with no ill effects...

    Hmm, are all these numbers at the websites and I missed them, or do you know absolutely everything? *G* (I do a lot of reading at your site and am a fan
