Do you sieve your home made compost before using it? Or sieve your soil to get it smooth and fine.
You could riddle it in a conventional sieve but another alternative is a rotary sieve such as the Clarke CRS400 Rotary Soil Sieve. The spring loaded handle applies pressure to the compost or soil forcing it through the mesh.
This 400mm rotary sieve can be found here on the Machine Mart web site.
