    Looking for sifter plans

    Made a sifter out of plans found in the Urban Treasure Hunter book years ago. Need a new sifter but I can no longer find my book. Anyone have a dirt sifter plan they could share with me.

    Thanks,

    Kirk

    I have two that I use. One is made from 2x4 and hardware screen with a hinged third leg that folds so I can shake it vigorously or leave it stationary when the leg is straight. A smaller sifter I made from a plastic milk crate lined with 1/4 inch hardware screen. I use it for smaller digs and when water screening.
