    Default Coraplast

    Planning on building some mating nucs this winter, 60 or so, to use two deep frames. I was going to use advantec, but found where I can get coraplast sheets for around 7 bucks. What do you think if I used advantec for the bottom and ends, and stapled coraplast on for the sides.
    On the pro side would be the cost, durability might be a con, but if I stacked them carefully when storing they might be OK.
    Suffering from analysis paralysis, help me out here. Thanks!

    Why not just use 7/16 OSB board it is $8.95 a sheet here and will last at least 2 years with out painting, longer if painted. If you have an 18 gauge stapler with 1.5 inch staples you can build one in just a few minutes and would last longer than the coraplast.

    I think the coraplast wont stay attached too long with the heavy advantec. If you are new at this, go with the OSB like Greg suggests. But for the long term, advantec is superior. J

    edit... yep that seems to have helped..
    its set for a 1/8 kerf, but my blade is thinner
    I split the sheet at about 21 or 20.75" IIRR, then make the three 10.25" rips
    I hate table saws so this is set to max the use of my chop saw
