    I am finding once more that re-working these used frames is a grinding ,time-taking adventure in sore fingers. I am almost tempted to switch to E-Z frames. Comments?.... :confused:

    I can buy NEW frames, fully assembled, for .60 each. If I clean one used one every 6 minutes, I'm making 6.00 per hour and trading new for used. One every 12 minutes, 3.00 per hour.

    NO, THANK YOU !

    One-piece plastic pieces that are "ready-to-go", but the stigma of plastic in a hive has rendered them mostly unpopular. Some swear by them , though, so who knows?

    That's a really good price for assembled frames. I'm sure shipping would be a deal killer.

    I use much plastic foundation due to economic reasons (time, etc) of wiring wax, but hate plastic frames.

    I assemble wooden frames, then pop in the pierco.
