The composite foundation has an arch of drone cells over a main area of worker cells. Min Intermediate and max refer to the amount of drone cells so that the nest can be graded for earliest possible drone production. The 4.9 mm cell size is more suited to "Theaker" Bees and other varieties of native apis mellifera mellifera. The foundation with drone cells one side and worker cells the other is being developed for an experiment in the transplantation of drone eggs. I will also try this type of foundation in some supers to see what will happen.

The sewing discs are sometimes used by darts players to enhance the grip of their fingers on the darts.
