Do you mean to make a sieve for the compost?
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

I used to put my compost through the Atco shredder, it came out soft and fluffy and seedlings loved it !

I think it depends what you're going to use the compost for Dave. I use a 6mm sieve for the compost mix for my long carrots and parsnips. On the other hand, if it's just for general use I'll use a 10mm mesh size, or none at all for use as a soil improver.
By the way, good result having the lend of a mixer!!
