:thumbsup:Just received the new plastic cell bar. It fits into my Kelly frame perfectly, not to tight not to loose. It holds the wide base cups nice and tight. Finally no more cups falling out after all that work!
Order direct from JZsBZs.com, there is a picture of it on the site but it doesn't show up on their list of products. I just email my order. I haven't received my invoice yet but I think they are $0.90. What a deal, I will save that much in not dropping cells.
I just used 6 of these cell bars on friday, 90 cells. I liked using them way better than the standard cell holder. No splitting of the cell bar, no dipping in wax, no dropped cells, and I don't forsee losing any cells when I brush off the nurse bees.
I really like his queen cell, Queen cages and shipping box
The queen cell cups do not have any chemical contamination that is one reason for using, another one is that some times i will graft and i wrap them in a wet shope towel and take them to another yard them place them on the cell bar and put in the cell builder.
I have a pic of the new cell bars in use. I got 82 of 90 cells accepted, if anyone needs cells check my post on the for sale forem. By the way JZsBZs also has a new cell protector that is taking the place of the orange ones. They are supposed to fit tighter.
