Can you buy these? I am gradually increasing my hive numbers and it is about time I started wiring my own frames.

Googled it. Found one with cerecel. Expensive.. Might have to keep looking.

Yes. They are available but not as a standard commercial item. You really need to make your own check out my video.

If you are going to get serious are wiring table with a foot operated clamp is the way to go. I can wire 60 full depth four wire frames an hour if I try hard and 50 if I'm taking it easy. Way back in

Way back in the day we used to do three wire frames and one of the guns could do 90 frames in an hour. The main thing is to get the wires really tight.

There is a photo of my wiring table in the May beekeeping journal. That one is about 25 years old and still working perfectly although I noticed the other day it had a few borer so I will dip it in the paraffin plant when the fire restrictions come off.

Thankyou. But I am only aiming at a max of 7 or 8 hives. Probably a bit over the top. I will look though. 👍

I am just starting to collect too many good frames that need fixing. 

I have a nice little working area. Doing some under coating today.

its a valuable skill to have @Wildflower and worth persisting to learn. Try to develop competence quicker than me...you've got a few years. I'm still seriously inept.

At hobby level its easy and not bank-busting to just buy new- but not environmentally responsible.
