    Yes, I had about 200 ML frames and foundation from them as well. I had to trim all of the foundation to fit! Humble abodes is an hour drive so that's where I get most of my equipment now. It is very good quality!

Bought several cases last year during their sale and fought them all spring as they barely fit into the bottom bars. I also put extra glue on the top bars to fill the saw groove of the wedge frames.

    I agree 100 percent here! I fought it too. Wish I had known...now all of you know!

    It never used to be that way when Walter T ran the company! Theirs matched anyone elses in quality.
