I cut hives out of folks' homes or barns or lumber warehouses from time to time. these are the frames I use to save the comb. frames are generally avoided in Warré hives, and with good reason, but these work really well for cutouts. they could also come in handy if a comb gets damaged somehow. they definitely shouldn't be used for typical frame beekeeping methods.
such a terrible photo, but maybe you get the idea...
