OK folks just trying to make sure I understand, I'm in the process of building an observation hive for spring; but before I start I want to make sure I understand 1 3/4 to 1 7/8 is from glass to glass?

Definitely take photos.  I'm going into my 3rd winter with my OB hive  Mine is 5 frame and even with perfect 1 3/4" glass to glass distance you'll bet bur and crazy comb now and again.  Don't sweat it, it's easily removed with a window razor.  Once you get it going it's amazing to watch and a great conversation piece.

I do one side of my hives in pexi. now. Little windows weren't cutting it for me  Smiley I built so pane can be reversed for cleaning.
