Need Help - Brushy Mountain 8 Frame Equipment
« on: February 27, 2009, 10:30:09 AM »
I need to build some slatted racks for a friend that is starting out with 8 frame equipment from Brushy.   Can someone with Brushy 8 frame equipment give me the outside dimensions of their hive body?  I know different Mfg have different dimensions for their 8 frame stuff,  so I'm hoping someone has the Brushy stuff and can take a measurement for me.

thanks...

I have some, the medium super measures 13 11/16 and 19 7/8
The company told me they were 14 x 20 when I first asked them about their size but now that I am measuring them they are clearly slightly smaller.
I bought my 8 frame slatted racks from better bee and they are slightly bigger than my supers, about an 1/8 of an inch on either side.

When making the racks use doweling instead of slats, with will work better.

Mine are 13 3/4"  13 11/16" is close enough.  I have quite a bit of Brushy Mt. equipment.

Thanks everyone.   I built them 13 11/16" so they should be fine.  I just didn't want them to be way off.
