    Default Humble Abodes Budget Frames

    Hi there,

    Anyone tried the Humble Abodes Budget frames? How are they? What tends to be wrong with them to make them budget?

    Thanks,

    Adam

    cost is still the same as other places with shipping, no real break in price.
    def cheaper with other sellers.
    these guys hit you in the shipping charges to make up the cost.
    $2 a frame without foundation, and $3.50+ with.

    I have but about ten thousand of these frames. Before I got taken over by betterbee. They were very serviceable. It seemed like the ones that did not finish out quite right and did not plane down smoothly.
    Are the ones you get. I do believe if you want wedge tops and or holes in the bar and bars you must ask for them and it may be higher price. Probably not much of a savings for a personal lives over thousand miles away. Due to shipping and handling

    Sometimes a noticeable grain (may split with staple) occasional knot. I buy them by the pallet. Love them. Ask for Tammy and she can describe them better.

    The shipping is crazy. Almost as much as the cost of the product.
    Somebody forgot to give my bees a copy of the book.

    Shipping is not an issue for me. I would be picking them up.

    Quality is what I'm interested in learning about from your experience.

    Thanks again,

    Adam

    Back when I was trying foundationless I bought many that they specially cut for me. Most are still in use... I quit using their boxes because they created bee space problems since they use different size boards for their deeps. Their quality has always been good and they are very responsive. Their mill is interesting [been there several times for pickup to save shipping.] Nice people too. I get all my bottom boards from them.

    that's another thing mixing up woodenware from different suppliers, bee space always being different with each maker.
    need to bee careful there.
