I'll say it one more time You cant run foundationless frames through a extractor.  They will just blow out.   

of course you can.  why do it?  why not....+ if you are going to do cut comb (i know, not the question) it is great.

i agree with those who say start with 10 until they are drawn.  you can go to 8 or 9 next year.  if you get some wonky comb, cut it out and they'll fix it next year. 

carol, if you can get them to draw stuff out this year, even if you don't get to keep the honey, you are that much ahead for next year.
doesn't matter whether you use foundation or not, they still have to attach it. they still have to draw it. 

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
