Well, let me clear it up a bit. When I say 10 hive bodies, I mean 10 mediums. They are all being used as brood boxes and honey supers, so I didn't know a better term other than "boxes". They are for two hives. I believe I need 3 mediums to over winter here in Northern Utah and have another two per hive for excess honey. If I need more, I'll run down to Salt Lake and visit Jones' Bee Company for more.
Oddly, none of the frames or boxes came with any nails. Perhaps that's my problem. They guy at Jones' said it wasn't part of the kit. I used lots of glue and an 18 ga. nail gun to put it all together, so that's why I don't have those nails to use. My frames are grooved with Duragilt.
I think I'd like to use the metal rails as I heard you can scrape up your frame rests pretty good with your hive tool if you dont use them.
