I have cut plastic, wax coated foundation into strips. I grind the tops of them enough to fit into the groove of the top bar of a frame. Then, since I have no bee's wax on hand, I put a thin bead of wood glue in the groove and shove the strip in there. So, the bottom of the strip may have the plastic smell since it has been cut from a full sheet of foundation. Sound like they will work? I have made a few and wanted a couple of opinions before making too many more. Thanks.
