My brother-in-law re-purposed an old hammer drill for a similar purpose, to sift
oyster spat sizes. Worked like a charm.

Dear Jim,
                    I believe that commercially vibrating tables are used very
effectively. The angle of the table is varied and the rate and magnitude of the
vibrations are controlled. Various fabrics are used to adjust the grab on the
chaff as opposed to the seed. They seem very effective in the seed industry and
I wonder if one could be constructed fairly simply using some device such as a
hammer drill of other hand tool with a reciprocating action.
Regards
Don Journet

have .5mm, 1mm, 2mm and 3mm screens but they still leave chaff the size of the
seed.
