I got a good deal on some 150# mesh 304stainless screen off Ebay and made a nice sieve.  Using a aluminum pie pan of the thicker variety. used 100% silicone to stick it  . The sreen cost about 15 bucks for 3 sq ft

that looks great!  I USED to have a strainer from the 1970s and it was taut and tight.  eventually it died and the new ones are all rippled.  have 3 now and none is right.  you did a really good job.

You can make another small sieve for test batches using a plumbing PVC pipe fitting.

Pipe fittings work well. Made one out of 10" sewer pipe.
