Frame Wire is used to reinforce wax foundation for added support. The wire is embedded into the foundation using a spur embedder or other embedding method. Using metal eyelets will help to prevent the wire from cutting into the frame and help to keep the foundation from sagging over time. Frame wire is made of 28-guage carbon steel.
