Ive got one you can borrow, but it's made from untreated ply, so I want it back to treat it.
I live in St Helens.

Thats very kind of you m8, any chance i could buy it of you as i wouldnt want it to start to warp or anything before it gets treated as i wouldn't be able to get it back to you for at least 3 weeks.
thanks

I've an old one that I got some bees in that I paid £30 for. You could have it for say £20.00. It's 5 frame 6mm ply nuc with mesh at the back and the front. The roof is in 2 parts for some reason and the topmost part is wrapped in a bin bag to waterproof it. The bees dont seem to mind though!

Good job I'm not a salesman!

PM me if you want it. I live near Carr Mill Dam.

i'm guessing they mean covered, why would you line it with metal....
