Hey @alucard

I haven’t got one yet. I had an old piece of kitchen shelf that had has like a non stick surface worked pretty good. @Stephen has linked one in the past seems pretty awesome.

I’ve always just spread a trash bag across my counter and clipped away.

Thing is, with a trim tray, you can collect the keif left behind after you’ve trimmed. Doing it on a bag or something like that, you lose the keif. It’s worth the investment. :+1::v:

My god… Why are trim trays so expensive…

That one that silvergrobo posted was 60 something American and it’s 99$ cdn. Some are in the 200’s. Is there a better place to get them or is that the going price for a screen and some plastic… I feel like MacGyver-ing one together if that’s the case…lol

I used to use a simple household window screen over my large glass coffee table top. Worked great. Just used a razor blade to collect the keif.

Yeah I figure that’s what I’ll do. I don’t need a 200 micron screen on some plastic that’s going to cost 200+. I saw 60 at first but I should have known it was in USD lol.

I hear you @Russel_Richardson

It’s the reason I didn’t buy one. I totally get the Kief thing but on my last grow i do all my trimming while still wet. I’m not sure I’m really loosing a lot. Now when the weed has been dried I have Keif collectection in my weed grinder. I can’t see the cost vs return on the fancy trays.

You’re a fellow Cannuk, go to Dollarama they got great perfect sized trays, pick one up and incorperate the screen @Osage spoke of. Any hardware store sells bug screen should be perfect.

What about using stainless steel would that pose a problem?

Be fine if you use a micro screen. Better yet but a nice square mirror at a thrift store with a window screen, and there you have it for a fraction of the cost :+1::v::joy: that’s what I do

What exactly is the function of a screen? Can’t you just harvest in the stainless steel then scrape the droppings together afterwards? (Not a smoker) or does it have more to do with the buds touching the pan? @Osage I’m getting ready to be professional by listening to your great advice!

The screen lets the trichomes pass through without a lot of plant mater being mixed with it. It’s just a way to collect more of what you grow for that may potentially be thrown away during harvest. Finger hash and oils could be made from what passes through the screen.
