I'm using groved frames with plastic foundation for my deeps but the drone foundation I am using needs a wedged frame. I can't find a description of how I am to use or assemble this. Any help would be appreciated
I prefer wedges to grooves, just because of ease of cleaning up. I'm converting all frames to wedge.
There's a strip of wood on either side of the groove. Cut one of them off and that's your wedge. If you wreck the wedge in removing, no big deal. You can make several out of a paint stirring stick. The one gallon size is too short, so go with the 5 gallon.
I went to a paint store and asked to buy 20 sticks. They said that they didn't have a price for them, so couldn't ring them up. They just smiled and handed them over! The wood on those is top grade, perhaps basswood.
