Wanted: Cloake Board for 8-frame hive

Post by pholcomb » Sun Jul 07, 2013 11:40 am

I'm going to try some queen-rearing next year. Would like to use the Cloake Board method but all the boards I could find in the major catalogs were for 10-frame hives. Any ideas on where I could get an 8-frame board? Thanks.

Ski made me a ten frame one. You are welcome to look at it and make a pattern for an eight frame.
