I was recently in Washington State and spoke with a beekeeper out there. As we went into his hives I noticed that he was using 9 frames in a Langstroth hive. Upon closer inspection I saw that the hive was much cleaner than my 10 frame. I've looked every where for the spacing dimension so I could make a cheater to help with the spacing.
I've seen tools for sale but at $20 each, I bet I can make something better for less...and if the 9 frame idea doesn't fly with my Connecticut be i'm out nothing but time! Anyone here got a tip or hint. Even a push in the right direction would be helpful.
