I built my own version of this (Mongolian Shaker), but not hand-powered. Works pretty good.

The British Group that created this hand operated shaker table made it for third world countries.  Here is the BGS original report from long ago.

Yup, that's a good thing to download and save, Joe. I did that years ago, and ended up building my version. I'm sure that little table saved a lot of mercury going into the environment.

No, Jim - not going into the environment --- returning back into the environment.

Handy little deal the BGS came up with.

A couple of years ago, on another forum, it was commented on heavily - and one of the actual BGS team members registered and answered questions on it's performance.  The BIG deal is that it's third world targeted which means no electricity and very portable.   [-1st-]
