Anyone have an idea how this can be achieved?
Does it involve the use of an Eke, similar in principle to the conversion of a National Brood box to 14x12. If so, are there any plans available?
Thanks

If it’s a poly all the suppliers do brood ekes.

30 plus 19 that I maintain for clients.
If it's a wooden nuc and has a removable floor it's just a case of adding a 90mm eke below the nuc and reattaching the floor. If not it's a case of making an eke with top and bottom rails.

Probably best to make or order new one.
box without top or bottom won't be that hard or expensive
