Is the cell size the same?
« on: February 23, 2010, 07:47:50 PM »
Recently I ordered both Mann Lake's Pf-520's which is the plastic frame and foundation as well as Brushy Mountain's Small Cell Wax foundation for my other frames. For some reason,I was under the belief that they were the same cell size. Now that I have bought them, I'm not so sure. Can anyone shed any light on the subject here? Small cell is really what I'm looking for.

I believe you want the pf 120, not the 520.

The 520s are 5.4mm.  The 120s are 4.95mm.  The Brushy mountain wax is 4.9mm.
