    Talked to this guy last year and he has quite a big compost and worm cast screening operation. Has a very large worm cast business and bought a $75,000 screener 10 years ago and was very disappointed so he started building his own and here are his products.

    This is the best source I've found, price wise for Wire Screen.

    Lloyd,

    Are those yours??

    That trailer tumbler is awesome too. If you built those you have some very creative skills!

    Yup, that's us. The trailer tumbler was used just to prove the concept would work. The trailer part is actually one of our field sprayers.

    Kinda cool to see my sifter, made me laugh.

    Sorry JD, I thought you were talking about the single drum on the trailer but now I realize you might have been talking about the multi tumbler.

    The single drum on the trailer was done just to make sure the composting worked before we went to all the trouble of building the multi tumbler on the frame.

    Sorry for the confusion there.

    Lloyd
