So, I read here about these machining problems on the flow frames that looks like melted plastic sticking up off the frames where they bees would draw out their wax. Decided to take a look at mine (still in box) and discovered it all over my seven frames. Took photos and sent them to faults@flow and they said, yes, it is ‘flashing’ and replaced the frames.
And, replace them they did. With six more frames with plenty of ‘flashing’ on them. I received only one frame that has no extra bits of plastic hanging off them and my question is this: Do your (everyone else) frames have flashing on them, or are they cleanly cut/machined and finished as you would expect them to be?
I am going to try cutting or grinding the extra plastic bits off, but am guessing that I might mess them up further. Alternatively, do I just leave them alone and will the bees cope?
Here are some photos for reference:
