Brushy Mountain's mite-board can slide in from front or back.
If a tray were same dimension it could slide -- big IF.
I'll check my Freeman beetle trap tray tomorrow but I think it is wider than Brushy mite-board.

I just made several SBB today that will accommodate the West beetle trap tray for a local re-seller. Using PT 2X4, I was able to make them for $3.28 for 8-frames and $4.13 unpainted, not including labor and electricity. Using 2X4s makes for a sturdy SBB.

I think you could probably make them yourself. You don't really need skill so it would be definitely in your wheel house.

Can I come up to your wood shop and you help me make them? It would be an honor to work with a craftsman such as yourself.

I make mine out of 2X4s mostly, with a 1X4 piece across the front. Would be glad to share my plans if you so desire. I can make one for around $3.28, having bought the hardware cloth in bulk. Using 2X4s makes the SBBs a tad beefier, in my opinion.

F6Hawk,

$3.28 may be a little to spendy for Ollie.
