Apidea Two Storey Adaptor Board
was developed by Albert Knight to enable two Apidea polystyrene hives to be fitted together so that a larger number of frames could be utilised.
that I have quoted in the drawing have been taken from an actual example that Albert made.
The rim pieces
that are marked with a * should be pared down to fit the boxes concerned as both wear and dimensional variance between batches of Apideas will alter the 'fit'.
that Albert made was left untreated... I personally would be inclined to use petroleum jelly on the contacting surfaces and to treat all the other surfaces with linseed oil.
