Hello,
We need to know the outside dimensions of Brushy Mtn. supers. Does anyone out there happen to know this?
We are re-designing our TBHs and are intending to make them as adaptable as possible for standard supers. We know the ID but the website does not give OD and we're working on these this weekend and will not be able to call Brushy themselves for the answer until Monday.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
J

A ten frame box will be 19 7/8" by 16 1/4".  An eight frame box will be 19 7/8" by 13 3/4".

Thanks Mike.
So this assumes using 3/4" stock. I had seen the 19 7/8" dimension before but was under the impression the scalloped handles in the side of the supers needed a thicker stock ...so wasn't sure the 19 7/8" was what I could expect of these supers that I am getting.


I guess 3/4" is standard though and you're probably right. I'll call Brushy Monday morning, but for our purposes this weekend, I'll go with 19 7/8".

Thanks again,
J

Brushy Mt boxes are all 3/4" stock.  The hand holds and rabbets are all 3/8".
