Got a tector but want to try a bit of panning , have 2 sieves 1/8 and 1/4 inch sieves and would like the 1/2 inch to facilitate classifying. I've tried all over the shop but it seems only the smaller size meshes are available, yet years ago I know the 1/2 mesh sieve was available. Any clues???? dundiggin. (now that user name may not now fit the bill,,lol.)

Try   www.prospectingsupplies.com.au       They have 14 inch ones  with 2 mesh /  1/2 inch .   Made by Keene in the USA ,   a bit pricey.

Also https://prospectors.com.au They also have 1/2 inch sieves under prospecting sieves . Not lab. type ones .

Thanks to you minermike for giving a clue where to go, I've t5ried tector places all over and no one seems to go beyond 1/4 inch and like3wise camping joints. Thanks again for the pointer... cheers dundiggin.

To make a cheap one, you could get a plastic bowl and cut the bottom out . Leaving , say , 20 m.m. all around . Buy some 1/2 inch woven mesh off E-bay and fasten it with some domed head gutter bolts . You will have to make some strips of metal to go on the underside , with 2 holes in each piece to hold the mesh to the plastic .

Another idea , get a cheap 1/2 hole saw and make holes in a plastic bowl . How long it will last depends on how much you use it !
