I have 4 Mann Lake mating 2-nuc units as shown:
http://www.mannlakeltd.com/ProductDetail.asp?idproduct=1093&idCategory=

Has anyone tried these? I find when I restore the top, I crush any and all bees on the top bars. There is no space at all between the cover and the top bars, arghh!

Is there a solution/remedy? I've thought of using a feed bag as an inner cover of sorts.

Maybe I'll have to resort to making a mating nuc of my own.

The issue with this is that the top bar is ticker than usual; put them through the planer and you will be ok. The other option is to get a regular top bar cut it in half and carve the one end to fit the side bar and you are good to go.
Good luck.
