Bullseye Frit Sifters

Postby ejgiebel » Sun Aug 22, 2010 8:53 am

I have a set of sifters I acquired elsewhere to make frit, which is fine when I need small quantities of frit, but not remotely practical for large quantities. However, the powder sized one has a finer mesh than Bullseye must use, because when I use the Bullseye powders, I'm left with about 30% of the powder that won't, no matter how hard I shake, fall through the mesh. While I can just get one and try, I thought I ask if the 8237 Frit Sifter gets close to 99% of the powder sifting through.

Hi Ed,

Yes. http://www.bullseyeglass.com/products/f ... -frit.html

The next variable you might want to control in sifting is how fast the powder goes through the sifter, or the sifter diameter. I have noticed that people who like to sift frit have great difficulty walking past any and all kitchen stores, where they might add to their collection.
