Parts for Rim 9mm deep 12mm wide

At first sight a rim that is only 12 mm wide will seem narrow, but there a is good reason for it.

The top rails of B.S. National hives have a wall thickness of 13 mm or (1/2"). As the boxes are square any item with a rim may be positioned in either of two mutually perpendicular directions. Therefore a 12 mm wide rim cannot overlap the ends of the topbars and thus we avoid the propolising mayhem that occurs with the standard
bottom bee space design.
