I located this URL this morning and thought that I would post it here for your use. It was published in the American bee Journal february 2005.
:thumbsup:It's well written and has good photos to explain hive manipulation for the method used to produce comb honey. The hive manipulation can be used for dividing hives for divides too,
Enjoy, Ernie

The Juniper Hill Plan for Comb Honey Production, Improved Two-queen System



The "Juniper Hill" Plan for full season comb honey production Spectacular results may be expected when using the basic Juniper Hill Plan. Four or five supers of honey in the Halfcomb may be expected in most regions on strong hives and much more in prime regions, weather permitting. Comb honey production by the Juniper Hill Plan together with Halfcomb cassettes is no longer tedious, labor intensive or swarm prone -- comparable to extracted honey production. Further by this plan, comb honey production does not require that beekeepers be specialists with knowledge of honeybee biology and behavior. The bees are induced and/or enabled by procedural design to perform the necessary steps in the right order. Published as Plan B in the American Bee Journal (Feb. 2005), this procedure is the shortest possible comb honey method as well as the least labor intensive.
