    Default Kelley frames vs Dadant frames

    I've always used Dadant frames. In fact, I am into my last box and considering reordering. Shipping costs kinda took the wind out of my sails, tho. I've looked around and discovered I can pick up a Kelley order at ABA's annual picnic and avoid shipping charges. But before I take that plunge, I am wondering about how the Kelley frames compare to the Dadant frames--size, quality, etc. Some of my Dadant frames are more than 10 years old and still going strong.

    Can anyone share their experiences with Kelley frames?

    Thanks!

    The quality of Kelley's frames is excellent. Until someone replies concerning how the dimensions compare with Dadant frames you can spend some time looking at this :

    Kelley's foundationless:

    Mann Lake frames "superb quality"!!!

    Miller Bee Supply frames is my absolute favorite!


    I've tried and used; Dadant, Brushy, Rossman, Miller, Mann Lake and Kelley....

    I have used Kelly's frame and really like them. Easy to assembly and I have never had any problems with breakage. I am partial to them, because I time my orders to pick them up at an event they are at so I do not have to pay shipping.

    Just received a new order of 1000 deep frames from Mann Lake. Can't beat the price, and shipping is on the house. Great quality frames.
