Homemade Rotary Soil / Compost Screen




What do you think about this video?

HARDCORE Fishing: amazing design great job

Ursula Zuba: so where is version 1?

Je Smith: I built this and decided to put the wheels on my lathe and turned a groove in the middle then had only one side of the rim in the groove. That settled the tremble moving back and forth and smoothed out the ride.

Thomas Scarbrough: very cool machine. great work!

matermark: I have a couple questions:
How do you make the screen/drum assembly/trommel?
How do you move it, especially the catch-trailer, to different parts of the raised bed? I'm not sure I'm wording that correctly--I understand 2 people can move everything--what I mean is where does the catch-trailer go next?? If you say along a side, perpendicular to a side, then the shoveler is no longer "in-line" but instead alongside, then backing up, then shovel a scoop into the trommel, etc.

leo ll: Nice work!

appleslorri2012: Great idea, I'm looking to make a portable horse stall cleaner.

Billy Page: Is this soil for a vegetable garden?

crumb9cheese: Oh my gosh this is so smart. You need to apy for a patten for real and sell these to home gardeners.

Christopher Brewer: /Users/christopherbrewer/Downloads/IMG_0181.JPG

Alex Blake: Make these to sell. I will buy one from you.

icelineman: A home made power screen very nice

Ministerium fur Wissenschaft: Great  work. This same setup could power an auto composter. If you  were to convert one of the roller spindles into  the drive spindle, you could free up the center of a sealed drum for a hatch.

Christopher Brewer: Do you have to have a custom fan belt made for the screen, and where did you have it made at?

Ruben Juarez: Awesome trommel, great job.

Michael McDaniel: Do you have a parts list and directions for build for this setup?  I also watched Geoff Babrooster's version and am very interested in building this thing but need a parts list and measurements and such.  Thanks for a great video.

Owen Cazar: how much is the rpm of the screen?

albert Davis: Nice man, good work!

Doug Lowe: inline skate wheels in the grooves will stop lateral movement

GerryStilton: I must say it is a great design!  Thanks for share your ideas. Any links to the parts?
