Hello farmers... I was just wondering what size mesh you're supposed to use for dry sift... I'm planning on ordering a kit from Amazon, but there are different sizes of mesh and I'm not sure what would be best. Each kit has 4 or 5 screens. Here are 2 options of the many on Amazon.

@gnicks what u use ? I have a micron set of like 60 , 90, 120 I think but that’s microns and the 60 is to small in my opinion. I think 73 microns and a 90 and 120 but that’s what was available to me .

I just order a 200 mesh screen and a 120 mesh screen to ck out haven’t seen them yet.

Gnicks is a master! I’ll get ya link to his thread

The second set if I had to decide today

I have a way to stretch my own screen so I Amazon just delivered 200 mesh to test out ! Yay I got a 18” x48” pc for like $12 ! I think it’s too fine ? Hope the 120 looks better my guess is freezer is spot on !

That 120 should be good. That’s 125 micron. Work the coarse on it with the 200 mesh underneath that to collect the gold. More will be under that on the table or whatever surface your sifting over.

I think Nick uses the 36 inch screens. It may not matter much, but when given the choice I always choose the larger.

18” wide is all I find but I can make 3’ long if I want I couldn’t pass up the diy for around 35 $ compared to buying a nice set for 200 - maybe it will give me an excuse to start a thread mmmmm.

I think all of the weed sifting Screens, three white and one yellow, Are manufactured by the same outfit in China. Then just distributed by a bunch of different companies.
