Frame jigs are invaluable. Mine is the more basic kind, only 2 moving parts.

Yep! I have screws in mine to hold the outside support boards and use my battery powered drill to zip the screws out or back in. So in reality it doesnt have moving parts. When putting a bunch of frames together you do need one of those.

hachi,
as barry said in his post:
"PM me if you want the cut list."
it is copyrighted material. you will need to send Barry n Abbie a p.m. to get the cut list for the frame jig. just click on his profile and send him a pm.

i did a quick google search and found this online: (same author~ howard blackiston~beekeeping for dummies)

Cut List for a Bee Hive Frame Jig~Building Beehives For Dummies

and also:

How to Assemble a Frame Jig for Bee Hives~Building Beehives For Dummies

this might not be what barry has.

This is the jig I built.  Happy with it. I don't see a cut list though.  :)

P.S.  Doh!  That is a box jig...I'll see if I can find the frame jig.   :-[

P.P.S.  I made Robo's frame jig (like Perry's).  You can download the plans here.
