Extra thin, 26-gauge (.478 mm) steel tinned wire is strong enough for all your framing needs. Use eyelets in the side bars to prevent wire from gouging wood (HD-185). Our Spur Embedder (HD-145) tool is used to push the wire into wax foundation.

HD-135 Frame Wire 1 lb. (453.59g) spool (approx. 1400 ft. 427 m)
HD-140 Frame Wire 5 lb. (2.27 kg) spool (approx. 7000 ft. 2133 m)
Wiring foundation is a breeze with our Spur Embedder. Specifically designed to embed wire into wax foundation by rolling the tool over the wire, pushing it into wax foundation.
Use our Support Pins instead of wire to prevent foundation from sagging. Insert the support pin through pre-drilled holes in the end bars to hold the foundation. Preferred by beginner beekeepers who use wax foundation because it is much easier than cross wiring foundation. Color may vary for Plastic Support Pins.
Designed to put the "easy" into frame wiring! Rods are inserted through the holes in the end bars and secured with a locking nut. For the best results, alternate the rods so they are on both sides of the foundation.
