These brass eyelets or grommets are very small guides that are placed in the sidebars of a wooden frame. These are specifically used when cross-wiring frames with 100% wax foundation. These are not used with frames designed for plastic foundation but are specifically for wedge top frames with wax foundation.
These eyelets are pressed into the pre-drilled hole in a sidebar prior to wiring the frame. Using the eyelets prevents the wire from cutting into the wood and keeps the wire taught when installing the frame.
These eyelets are integral for building a high-quality bee frame that will last for years without any bowing or cupping of the wax. These can easily be used with our other frame-building supplies like our wiring jig.
