It is not my intention to hijack this thread, but I have the same questions as joelin, and I've been thinking about exactly what to do for days. I'm a little afraid of going foundationless, but then again, I'm a little afraid of any method since I know none, and I figure some ignorance = some bliss as I feel my way through this.
I have a 10-frame medium to use as a super, not planning to harvest it. I bought traditional wax foundation but have not yet installed it. I am thinking about removing the wedges from frames and nailing them to the bottom of the top bar of the frame, turned 90 degrees. I also thought about putting an inverted triangle of foundation in one to three of the middle frames, tacking the small end to the bottom wedge. I was thinking the top of the foundation should go all the way across the bar, but Brian suggests 5 cells wide, and, I assume, a straight strip (how deep?), not triangular. I also think I'm probably overthinking this (in fact, I have a headache from all the reading and re-reading I've done in the past few days), but does the triangle thing have any merit as a guide? Currently I have 2 deeps, so I can't pull a frame of drawn comb to put in the medium super. And I'm not clear whether some foundation is better than no foundation. Help!
