I got a super from a friend that uses the basswood boxes for comb honey.  It has what looks like dividers in-between the frames and then strange looking frames and then disassembled wood boxes.  I get the assembly of the boxes, in fact I got a sheet from Kelleys that describes how to put the boxes and foundation together, but I really don't get how the whole mess works!!
I have about 100 boxes what have not been assembled so I would like to try and use the super.  What is the purpose of the wood dividers?  Is there anything anywhere that describes how the whole thing works and is assembled?  There are also 4 springs, separate, that I can't figure out where they belong.
I tried a google search but not too helpful  I like expanded drawings, closeups etc.... and I haven't found a good source yet.
Thanks in advance for your help.

The Comb Honey Book by Richard Taylor or Honey in the Comb by Eugene Killion both have details of how these go together.  Walter T. Kelly still sells all the parts.

Thanks, I'll look around for a copy of either book.  No one I know has either book in their library.
