Cell Builder Frame

3282 10
What is the acceptable height between the bottom of the bar where the cells are, and top of the next bar on a frame like this one.

I think I read that the width is around 3/4 of an inch, please confirm that this is also correct.
Also, how many cells per bar will fit; and can you put too many?

Or if you could take a picture of what you use and tell me how you use it that would work. Measurements would be great.
I would like to learn to produce my own queens on a small scale. I have some books but they don't tell me how much room the bees need to make perfect size cells.
I don't want to crowd them, nor do I want to spread them too much.

KQ6AR,
Was it a Deep or a Med? I am actually wanting to build a medium frame. Of course if it is not possible to do this because of the height of the frame then just a bar with cups would do.
Thanks for helping any info is better than what I have now, the best I can do is guess at this point.

If you are going to use a medium I would use one bar, but that does not mean you can't engineer a two bar set up.
