Beekeeping has a language all of its own. It is important to consider that the microclimates and practices in Australia and more specifically South Australia are not internationally generic and access to international forums / websites/ and documents may give rise to confused terminology especially with equipment sizes.

When ordering equipment it is important to be familiar with terminology and standard equipment measurements regardless of where you make your purchases as there are many variations.

Keeping your equipment standard and well maintained will ensure you have a saleable commodity should you wish to sell your investment at anytime.
