I have been using net pots used in hydroponics to do the first classification for me. They have a 1/4 plastic screen built into them and fit snugly on a 5 gallon bucket. They also only cost around $4. I have the 10" and 8". They fit real snug on the bucket too so you can use them as a lid.



I picked up one of these to try out. If if works I might try adding roll pins like this

And possibly a pail handle.

Thanks for the great idea.

I used it this weekend and it does a great job.  The thing I like most is you can really load this puppy up before you need to classify.  The only regret that I have is I wasn't wearing gloves and the edges are on the sharper side so mix that with gravel/sand and you will have some sore hands.  But at least I know now.  I'm looking at glueing some screening into it to make it a smaller mesh size as well.  As for durability it looks like a strong build, but for 4 bucks you really can't go wrong even if you need to buy one every season.

I use mine all the time and have not broke one yet, but if I do it will be a lot easier for me to replace then a $30 one.

I leave a 1/2 inch around the bottom of a 5 gallon pail and cut out the rest of the bottom. Cut screen in a circle the same size as bottom of the pail. Drill small holes and pop rivit it together. COST OF SCREEN IS WHAT THIS COSTS CHEERS RAY
