          The original DIY tumbler threads back in the day @ OG & CW had the units powered by BBQ rotisserie motors and spits....and....

          Small rubber or heavier plastic balls were added to the containers of trim to fall , bounce , and beat the silk screen as it tumbled to help vibrate the trichs off the leftover plant material.....anyways....

          Thoughts to ponder , and hey.......nuthin wrong with a lil hand crank tumble action goin on since it allows more volume of material to be processed at one setting , but.....

          We always liked to use less material and pull more dry sift , or rather as much as possible without adding too much shake and green shit to the pile underneath , and the rotisserie motor could be left runnin while other shit was being done........

          Peace.....DHF.........

                Great thread, Cameltom. if i manage to find some silk screen fabric around here I'll do a try to make one myself.

                  So DIY'ing these seems pretty straightforward, even upping the game to add some extra layers of screen to further sort the wheat from the chaff as it where. Are metal screens that much better? They cost quite a bit more and seem like they would be slightly harder to work with. Some quick online searching also leads me to places that have minimum order sizes that are quite a bit larger than what one person would need. If I can just hit up dickblik for silk screening materials, thats great and would make it much easier, but if metal is really better for anything other than durability, clue a fella in.

                    Thanks for the inspiration Cameltom! As an auto mechanic trying to research doing A DIY tumbler I thought your basic design was genius! Honda wiper motor spins like a dream, can't wait to try it out.... I have a ratchet strap holding my freezer door closed atm, lol.

                        Just about done running a bunch of popcorn and shlt through it, works great I fill the bucket 1/2 way & run it on a timer for 2 hr's. Best run so far was 1.5 oz's of some nice blonde, I am definitly in hash heaven right now!

                          A 220 micron mesh has openings that are too large, unless you are going to re-sift that rough contaminated resin through finer meshes (and there's nothing wrong with that!)..but if quality, not quantity is your aim, then I'd recommend using a 100 ~ 125 Mesh (150 ~ 125 micron mesh) for your tumbler so less contaminant passes through the mesh with the resin. It's easier to not allow the non-active plant matter to mix in with the resin than to try and remove it later with most methods...see the Hashish forum for the thread about how to apply mesh to wood and also on the many ways to dry sift, it's all there.

                          Stainless steel meshes are ideal if you are tumbling (or flat screen sifting) any type of plant material (bud or trim with or w/o stems) while synthetic meshes also work well but are not as durable as S/S mesh and it's best not to try and tumble any stems with a nylon mesh or you might hole the mesh...though synthetic meshes are tougher than you think and the only time I've put holes in mesh is went I've dropped a sharp object like scissors or knife point on the mesh. To repair a screen frame or tumbler mesh with a hole, simply cut two pieces of sticky tape that are slightly larger than the hole and press them together on either side of the hole on the mesh so they stick together and cover the hole.

                          For re-sifting over a finer flat screen, synthetic meshes are best as they are much more pleasant (the feel, touch and sound) to work on compared to S/S....there's nothing worse than carding over a S/S mesh

                            Here is my tumbler, it is a 55 gal drum with a dog food container with 110 mesh hot glued in the inner container...

                                The best tip for producing dry sift efficiently is to use plant material that has been stored and aged correctly (unmauled during growth, harvest, drying and stored cool, dark, dry) for months. Plant material might dry out in a week or two, but the resin on that dry material will still be gooey and unsuitable for sifting and re-sifting until much later. After several months, the trichomes (resin heads) will dry out, slightly shrink in size and become harder and less gooey-er and less prone to rupturing and smearing..and be easier to separate from the chaff resulting in greater yield and higher purity.

                                Always use magnification to monitor your progress during all stages of sifting. Check out the starting material, before, during and after sifting, check out what is passing through the meshes and what is staying above the meshes etc etc...magnification will guide you to purity, so use it.

                                Happy Sifting!
