    Not easier, but not difficult to make.

    a vertical topbar hive , aka a warre

    I would say there are many more horizontal top bar hive in circulation then long langs and the like, feels like a squeaky few getting the grease

    I don’t know about his “we” stuff… I say keep the dissustion of langstroth hives and other frame OUT of the top bar forum. The management is vastly different.

And I think that combining them into one subforum can lead to confusion for newbees that are looking for help.
    yep, you can see the confusion start to take hold in AHud’s post

    whats next…. Discussion coffin hives here because they are long? ? lol

    sure, lets add IMP breeding for mite restiance to the TF forum then!
    We don’t have an area for the discussion of mite resticant stock for us who are still willing to protect our livestock if we have to, while move the ball forward towards restiance, a gole MOST of us should be looking towards

    At some point inclusion removes the whole point of a sub forum, witch is not to be inclusive. and given the state of the BS search function having narrow band sub fourms is quite helpful
    It seemed easy for the mods to add the new overwintering sub forum, my vote is we don't make the tob bar forum the catch all for random and rair long hives

    I mean come on... The ( TTBH/KTBH) keepers that used to inhabit this forum will get little out of the of the dissustion of a long lang flow hive

    Again - yet another wrong assumption of some dependency on Hoffmans.
    Hoffman side bars are just not needed.
    At all.

    Hoffman style frames spacers are not a rule and not a requirement and not a necessity.
    I don't make them anymore (once tried building such frames and stopped as a waste of time and material).

    So, let me reiterate - simple top bars are simpler/faster/easier to make.
    I make them straight from a scrap pile.
    Since my hives are deep, I staple/screw ad-hoc side bars to them as additional comb support - again - from total junk.
    Like so:

    The final product works fine, like so:

    I find this issue with "separation" a superficial one.

    Fundamentally, we are here about managing movable combs on a single level.
    That is the real common denominator.
    Not the "touching bars".
    Here are my Layens rigs with "touchy bars" - here you go - a 100% TBH practical implementation that fits perfectly if to be technical.

    I understand it now, it is horizontal stable hive, and the primary argument is "Hoffman style side bars are not needed".
