Just to save me re-inventing the wheel :) does anyone know of any downloadable 14 x12 Nuc Plans?

Cheers

Thanks Admin, I'd forgotten about them there's a full set on Photobucket for anyone else that's interested (no commercials though).

Thanks Pete, I've seen most of the videos on youtube I especially like the idea of a bee shed, maybe something to thing about for the future.

Cheers

I built one today using that drawing. I had to make some minor adjustments to allow for 9mm ply, otherwise it turned out as expected.

I am now encouraged to try a full brood box...

Marvin,on the full brood box there may be a mistake,I had to adjust the top bars on the 14 x 12 plans by about 3-5 mm from memory.

Anyone else used the plans that can remember the same problem ?

It's the same problem as with the national plans

460 brood box side

Runner outboard of rebate 36mm-23mm = 13mm

2 x 13mm = 26mm

460mm-26mm = 434mm the distance between the rebates.

Cushman has national top bar length as 432mm

http://www.dave-cushman.net/bee/bstopbars.html

2mm theoretical clearance, which is about 1 weeks worth of propolis.

The clearance needs to be at least double that
