Re: Can I turn my Brushy Mtn. frames into foundationless?
This is how I did it too. I didn't wire anything and the only problem is the first year before they attach on top and bottom, you need to be careful when inspecting so it doesn't bend and fall out as you turn frames. If they are honey frames, same thing, first year be real careful while extracting. I hand crank so I've learned how slow to turn.
