Never done comb honey so I re read Honey in the Comb by Killion. Now I have a question on his T super.
Specifically, page 19 fig 12 and pg 28 fig 24 shows my quandary. Why use a super only 14" wide? This is exactly 2 1/4" less than a standard super. It can't be because an additional row of sections will not fit since a section is 1 7/8" wide. It doesn't add up that the 3/8" "slop" could be the issue since that can easily be made up either with a thicker separator on each side or by using thicker stock for the super side walls.
So why is it?

Killion ran all ten frame brood boxes and eight frame supers.  It's an eight frame box.  It's because you want to crowd the bees up into the supers, I suppose, but the other thing is they tend to fill an eight frame box out and they tend to skip the outside frames in a ten frame box.
