Oh good I want to know too. I badly need one for my next grow.
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.
@fuz picked this one:
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.
lol @SterlingNico I’m even fancier I used parchment paper
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.
Yeah I was thinking of that actually. Gonna hit up Dollarama on my way home👌
I’m gonna start a topic on DIY fixes. Post what you make and what it does, how it helps, and how much it cost compared to a bought product.
Good call @Osage
Topic has been started:+1:
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 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.
appreciate you! @coffindancer
