I made a jig using Scotts design a while ago and now I can make almost a billion frames at a time. Works very well. Thanks Scott.

Glad y'all find it useful!!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

I'd like to know where you got those frames from. Brusheys doesn't have the extra ridge in the bottom center.

I bought deeps and mediums from a place called 'Busy Bee Beekeeping Supplies' in Tweed Ontario. I don't know who is supplying him.
My local bee guy sold his business to a large Quebec outfit this spring and I saved about 25% by going North to Tweed. Of course shipping would have taken care of any savings but I had a relative who was coming down swing through to pick up my order.

The deeps have only a single large space for the bottom bar. I feel good about these mediums as staples shot through the bottom bar hit that center piece and glue has the tag to bind to as well.

I feel better having saved some $$ but still envy y'all South of the border. My cost per frame .... $1.05 plus 13% tax. Maybe next year I'll run down to Bud6 and do some shopping on the way! Probably save the gas $$.
