    Jackpot!!!
    I found a junk shop that has a few of these, different meshes. I have a real riddle at last.
    I can get more, 20, 30, 40, and the little one peeking over the top is a 240.

    Nice score. I have a set of those too. What diameter are they? Mine are 12". Wish they were 18" or 24" but those are typically quite pricey. They're good for stacking and testing mesh distribution and sieving small amounts, maybe some facing sand, but cant imagine doing bulk sifting with them.

    Might be a nice addition for measuring the fines at different locations with your method of separating sand fines in the airstream of a fan.

    Best,

    Yes they are 12's except the 240, it's 8".
    I'm going to use the 20 as a riddle for the PB.

    Just for giggles I ran 1000 grams of play sand through the stack...20,30,40,50.
    Here's what was left on each screen

    20 - 70 grams
    30 - 142
    40 - 244
    50 - 236
    Bucket - 280
    lost 28 grams, stuck in the screens and spillage.
    What ended up in the bucket was pretty nice sand.

    Lol, yup. Good job getting them all shiny, they look great! Looks like you put in a lot of work. At least I know the ones I have cast need a lot of elbow grease to get looking close to that good... What tools / abrasives did you use, if I may ask?

    Edit - I was shocked to find no styrofoam Halloweenies at Michael's this year, just plastic crap. Luckily I have been saving up my foamies for a few years:

    Tobho had learned to work Valyrian steel at the forges of Qohor as a boy. Only a man who knew the spells could take old weapons and forge them anew.

    Fishbonz, what kind of casting are you doing, is it shell or sand or something else?

    Really nice results.

    Bonz mentioned petrobond in post 4 in regards to the openers and anchors, but those skulls are lost foam if I'm not mistaken.

    Yes, those are foam skulls, they come from China so they should be available everywhere.
    When I got them the price tag said $1.99. Ok, I'll get $20 worth. At checkout they were $0.99, I should have got 10 more.
    Jeff,
    They still have the bead imprints in them, just shiny.
    I de-sprue on the table saw, grind it flat with a RexCut Max Flex ( http://rexcut.com/product/type-27-max-flex/ ).
    Tumble them in the mixer with Crush and Run Limestone followed by river gravel tumbling.
    Then I used a HF nylon wheel to shine them. https://www.harborfreight.com/4-inch...ush-91372.html
