:lpf: :lpf: :lpf: I'm loving this!!!! I bought my first equipment from Montgomery Ward's and Sears in the very early 1970's... wish I still had those Farm and Garden catalogues!!!

Wooden frames haven't changed, but as Grant mentioned, there is different foundation for different frame designs. You can use that "old" equipment just fine. It isn't old enough to be antique yet. Any catalogues or books you ought to save, if you're going to keep bees...some of the guidance in them is still valuable.

And who knows, you may decide to start collecting bee stuff from earlier in the 20th century. My point is, just because it's old, doesn't mean it's useless... keep it all, you may never know when you'll find a good use for it.

Man I feel old right now.... thank you for giving me a chuckle.
