I bought two of these yesterday.

Langstroth 6 frame Nucs cut to take a partition for National.

I thought that some Langstroth fans might want nucs...

Pics to follow as the design is good but I fear the entrance is too short.

I look forward to seeing those pictures PH. I am not aware of 'proper' National poly nucs, only the Langstroth ones modified to take Nat frames.

Here we are.

1. general shot.
2. Showing entrance which is 50mm wide x 8mm high. Which worries me as it seems very small for a 6 frame nuc.
3. Inside view including the groove for adapting to National.
4. Entrance close up
5. showing the "feet"
6. The rather clever finger/hand grip.

Before you ask they were £25 each and I bought the only two they had.. so offers on a pm please...LOL
