The grid can be applied to the face of the frames using
small staples. The ends of the 2 mm wires can be controlled by
putting a bead of 'No Nails' glue along the edge of the sidebars, the
excess being wiped off after the stapling. An alternative method of
fixing can be achieved by screwing on thin capping strips to trap the
wire ends. The material can be 3 mm 'birch' plywood that can be
obtained from aero modeling shops or another material that I
personally find quite useful for many purposes is the fibreglass
substrate that is used for making printed circuits, this is available
in thicknesses of 1.6 mm or 2.3 mm.
Detailed drawings of parts to make the B.S. Standard version of the frame are provided, along with a chart giving alternative dimensions for making B.S. Commercial and Langstroth versions.
