    Default Kelley Beekeeping Honey Comb Kit #22

    I purchased one of these for my wife for Christmas. Figured Iíd probably try to put it together for her. Problem is the instructions are absolutely terrible.

    I work better by visualization. Any one know of a YouTube video on how to put one of these things together?

    I looked at Kelleyís website but nothing there.

    Thanks in advance

    Are those split or solid basswood sections?

    Not sure why I should have to pay for instructions. All I really need is a good photo or two to see how it goes together

    Perhaps these instructions may be useful:

    Those are the instructions that come with it. They really arenít helpful. #3 states to Ďnail one block at each endí. Maybe itís just me but I donít know what that means. There are several different ways a block could be nailed to the end. Without seeing a final picture, Iím not sure exactly what they are asking for.

    Aroc. I feel your pain. There is a picture on the instructions, but I am sure it is hard to see. Try viewing with the link provided by Rader and increase size on your monitor . If using chrome, press and hold "Ctrl" and then hit + to keep increasing size. To me, it looks like the "blocks" are nailed to the outside of the "scallops".

    Have you consulted you tube to see what they have for videos. You sound kinda surly defeated. Hurts your odds of getting help.

    4 boxes in eaceI don't have a pic handy but its pretty simple, the end bars and bottom piece are designed to cradle and support 4 boxes at a time with no gaps.

    4 boxes in each and then slip in foundation, then that "assembly" sits in the shallow super with a thin metal strip nailed across the end

    devider in and repeat 5 times?? and then spring spacers to tighten it all up.... I can send pics next week when I get home.

    Well I think that helps. It looks like I may have done it right. Just canít believe these instructions are this bad.

    Thanks to everyone for their help
