Budget has petrobond premixed, for competitive prices
but shipping from california is cost prohibitive.
there's mullers at auction all over the web. at least
a dozen at any given time. Building one is far cheaper
though unless you get lucky.

so petro bond should fall through the riddle just by shaking it? ive been
taking chunks of the sand and smashing it though the screen. is this not the
it should work?
The burnt chunks of Petrobond will not just fall through the riddler but the
unburned material should go through with very little effort. I try to pick out
the burnt chunks and put them in a separate container. Then I riddle the rest
which goes very quickly. The burnt chunks are then placed in the riddler and
I slide them back and forth across the wire mesh bottom. No "smashing". This
quickly cuts them back into powder.
Another advantage to separating out the chunks is if I'm doing more than one
cycle of pouring. The burnt chunks will remain hot for a while so I can just
leave them aside while I use the rest again.
