|Monthly Tech-Tip |
The position of the weights on the shaft determines the amount of vibration. The notches in the three plates hold them in place. When adjusting the position of the plates be very careful not to get your hand caught in them when turning the motor on! Experiment with different settings to get as much vibration as your setup will tolerate without shaking the sieve out of the mount. Reinstall the protective caps as soon as possible.
Making your own sieve shaker
All you need is an inexpensive vibration motor from Amazon, a five gallon pail, some metal and welding and 3D-printed collars to hold the sieve in place.
