    Big disadvantage, termites. They love old boxes clamped tight together!

    We started wax/resin dipping our pallets, same as the boxes, makes a huge difference.
    Ian, do you have any trouble dipping the plywood? I have a bunch of wax and a tank about ready to go and was wondering if the heat will cause the glue to fail??

    No problems at all, the plywood really sucks in the wax

    Here are some pics of the tele-covered hive pallet clip.

    Please comment. I'll make more out of heavier metal.

    Not going to start manufacturing custom W-clips after all. Sorry everyone. Here is an idea though:

    The ell brackets would end up costing more than the W clips. Why not just cut a dado in your bottom board frame?
    Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.
