@ new containers from the dollar tree:



the first one is a nice size, works well and is 5 for $1 BUT you need to tape it up before you use it or it will crack

I like the bb separator What Is it and where did you get it?
Thanks
That is the $1,000,000 question I get a lot:confused:. I found mine in a thrift store, it has no markings on it. I've spent hours searching for one like it online


Mystery solved It is a popcorn kernel sifting bowl.

Not all airsoft BB's work I found that these do


I've heard that some plastic beads also work but have yet to try any

I don't have a picture. I use ziplock threaded top containers. They came from Walmart housewares dept.
After about 5 years use. The first one bit the dust this summer.

I haven't gotten past the Cool Whip container. A lot of those other ones look much better. I like the idea of a screw on lid.

I use square cornered versions of the very first containers pictured. I have one for each color of powder, and they each have their own dedicated BBs. The silicone gaskets & locking lids make them perfect for my needs.

I did find something I think will work:
# 4 MESH 6" Mini CLASSIFIER Sifting PAN GOLD Panning PROSPECTING Sluice Dredge
https://www.ebay.com/itm/192428958232 $9.98

I ordered one to test it out
Staying tuned to this very curious if that sifter works out??

These don't leak powder past the gasket or trap powder under the lip to spill outside the seal when the lit is removed. I need to buy an extra one of these for every color and store them back because like everything good I find, I'm sure they'll soon be discontinued.

%&@#÷& Ziplock mental midgets discontinued the resealable vacuum bags that came with the awesome little hand pump that could be cleaned in 5 seconds and stored in a utensil drawer.....unlike the cumbersome, heavy Foodsaver thingy that wont seal if there's any liquid near the melty strip and involves dragging out andnplugging in a cord, andbif it gets meat juice sucked inside it takes half a day to clean and dry before it can be put away. Rant off.

most say that a container marked pete [in the triangle] #-5 works the best.

many old Rubbermaid/Tupperware containers are #-5 and quite heavily constructed.
I use a see through #5 cup about 6's tall with a #-2 lid.
I got about 40-50 of them stacked away down stairs.

Nope, marked 5 which is polypropylene.

I used an empty, lidded container we got some deli ham in for sandwiches. Worked pretty well actually.

I need to look at some empty pill bottles at work, might be able to get something taller and narrow which would make a good swirl easy. I can likely get some thing big enough to hold almost a quart.

that's what you want.

when you use a spray gun for PC you ground out the object to be sprayed then give it a charge opposite to the gun and just mist the powder into the air around the object, it is sucked into place by the static charge.
