Handy seed, fertilizer screen"I came up with this idea a couple years ago when we had to remove lumps from bulk fertilizer we had purchased," says C.M. Bolinger, Frankfort, Ind. who came up with a simply way to make a heavy-duty funnel screen for fertilizer or for cleaning foreign particles out of grains.
"You just cut the bead flange from one side of an auto or truck wheel along with 1 or 2 in. of rim, slicing the wheel all around its circumference. This produces an angle-shaped snap ring which you insert in the opposite side of the wheel to tightly hold a piece of stretched wire screen or hardware cloth in place. You can easily change the screen for different size material," Bolinger explains.
