Dry sift gear question

    I've done the bubble hash thing which produces nice hash, but is a pain in the ass for larger volumes of bud/trim. It takes more time to make than I have.

    I switched to using dry ice in my bubble bags, which is super quick, but arguably not as good of a finished product....which I don't care so much about considering the vast majority of the hash is added to oil for patients to orally ingest as opposed to smoking. The issue I have with the dry ice is the retarded amount of money I have spent on it over the years, and the fact that it's not always available at my local stores, so I'm thinking a set of pre-made screens would make sense. It will save me money over the long run, probably yield a better product, and I don't have to be worried about dry ice being sold out when I'm ready to do a run.

    So, what screen sets should I be looking at? Again, I'm not too concerned with buying the absolute best set up as the majority of the dry sift will end up in an edible oil mix. I want something ready to use out of the box too. Not interested in a DIY project.

    Any help would be appreciated...!

    For personal use these work Ok, I say Ok because I get more yield if I run it manually. But for simplicity and they can run for days if you have enough material it works, yield is about 5-6%, vs. 8-10% running it manually through a sift screen. They have a 180u option for the screen which is fine/good for meds, finer if you want it for smoking but it doesn't sound like that's what you want it for.
    I use this or a DIY screen (15 minutes, screen, spare 1x2 wood for the frame, 4 screws - lol). There are larger more commercial versions of this idea but they can get expensive.

    I also recently grabbed one of these off Alibaba to figure out screen size and whether it makes it any easier, it's clean, haven't used it yet but expect it will work fine. Still trying to find one of them that provides a bottom catch tray to fit these. I normally I sift on my DIY screen on top of a sheet of parchment paper.

    drysift you can get screens at http://www.poconoscreen.com/ pretty cheap. Its what most of the dry sifters in the industry use.

    60 lpi, 85 lpi, 137 lpi and 180 lpi is what I use. You do get a smaller yield compared to bubble


    Winter is coming lol. So its that time to make bubble again.

    We make our own, but Bubbleman offers a kit with 140/107/90 micron screens. http://fullmeltbubble.com/forum/forum.php

    I own bags, buckets, dry ice tumblers, screen rollling tumblers, mini wash machine, boxes, home made and commercial units..
    all stored in the rafters now. I always use this for my needs. I found nothing more satisfying for under 15 bucks. mine stays in my freezer filled with bud until needed. a shake rattle and roll and voila
