I need to buy some foundation. All my frames are grooved top and grooved bottom. Will foundation that says it is from wedge top and grooved bottom work in my frames?

I used to buy all my equipment from Brushy Mountain Bee Farm, but since they went out of business, I am looking for a source for new foundation. Mann Lake has some for wedge top/grooved bottom.

So does Dadant, but I wasn't sure if it would work in my frames?

Grooved top and bottom frames should take the wired foundation without hooks if using wax. It will snap in just like the plastic. If it has hooks you will have to cut them off.

I use Acorn double waxed plastic foundation in my grooved top and bottom frames, and I'm very happy with it.

It's the only type of plastic foundation I have tried myself, but the general consensus around here seems to be that it's the best plastic foundation out there at the moment.
