Our craftsmen take huge pride in the quality of all our products and everything has to meet their exacting standards. Sometimes a product they’ve made will be functionally perfect but have a small cosmetic fault and they have been putting these to one side. The ‘imperfections’ in these can be quite tiny and it seems such a waste for them not to be used. The most common flaw is a slight blue tinge which is a natural colouration sometimes appearing during the drying process whilst some others may have a small knot in the underside of the frame bar.
All parts of the frame have been machine tooled to our usual exacting standards and just the top bars may have these slight cosmetic flaws which will not be noticed by the bees and will in no way affect their function. We’re conscious of these flaws though so will be reducing the price you pay by £2.50 for every pack of ten unassembled frames (The £2.50 per 10 pack of frames has already been deducted from the price shown below).
