How to make a Worm/compost separater/shaker with a straight shaft electric motor? Answered
I raise composting nightcrawlers for fishing bait and worm castings. I need to make a simple shaking machine with 3 different sizes of screens. The first screen with keep all of the larger pieces of dirt and twigs from the compost and a few of the larger worms. The second screen of a smaller mesh will keep most of the worms and a little of the unfinished compost. The third and final screen will let through only the worm castings and the worm cocoons. This machine should hold at least a five gallon bucket of compost at a time and the worms have already turned any large particles of garbage; leaves; dirt etc into small parts, but picking these worms out a few at a time is a very time consuming process and I have a lot of 50 gallon barrells to go through.
