Stainless Steel and Cedar Herb Rubbing Screen, coarse mesh
MADE IN AMERICA by Strictly Medicinal This Coarse Grade Herb Rubbing Screen is specifically designed to help remove sticks from dried culinary herbs or tea herbs to create a tea-cut for tea use. Also will serve nicely as a preliminary grading tool to remove large sticks and debris from medicinal herbs, prior to passing through the medium grade screen (also available on this website). The large size allows for a vigorous and unimpeded sweep of the arm while hand-grinding the coarse herb through the screen. This improves efficiency when working with any size pile of dried herb from small quantities up to 500 g at a time, depending on fluffiness. This screen will also work very well to reduce dried medicinal herbs to the proper grind for tincturing (which will improve alcohol coverage, lack of which is a stumbling block for home medicine makers). This screen can also be used for separating small seeds (e.g. basils) from chaff, in seed cleaning. This is a very sturdy frame made of port orford cedar, measuring 18 inches square and 3.5 inches tall, reinforced with large fine-thread galvinized screws. The screen is very sturdy, stainless steel mesh, specifically 6 mesh stainless wire. Weight–5 lbs.
