      >
      > Stoney Knoll sifting screens have been tested through years of service
      > to provide optimal performance under the toughest field conditions.
      >
      > We manufacture our sifting screens from select, clear, New England
      > white pine. The wood is planed or sanded to eliminate rough or sharp
      > edges prior to assembly, and handles are shaped for comfort during
      > use. Our standard size sifters have 42" legs with four position
      > adjustable height. The pivot point is located on the far end of the
      > box (center pivot legs are also available). We offer both 1/4" and
      > 1/8" superior woven and dipped galvanized wire mesh. Screen inserts
      > are available so one sifter can serve as both a 1/4" and 1/8" sifting
      > screen.
      >
      > Each sifting screen is hand-built in our Dover, NH shop using the
      > highest quality materials possible. The screens are durable, though
      > surprisingly light and easy to carry. Screens are available in three
      > standard sizes to fit your needs. Custom orders are also available.
