Width of 8-frame equipment does vary, Michael Bush has some of the variations listed on his web site, you should check it out. One of those standard dimensions are what I chose for mine which is 13-3/4" outside width, and that gives me a 12-1/4" inside width.
Thanks fellows. Just curious. My bait hive is 12" inside dimensions, and I will probably put 7 frames in it. Where I plan to take it, it will be several weeks, maybe over a month, before I can check it.
