Will the "production model" be constructed of two cheap vegetable strainers? If so, I'll take 4; 2 for drum overhead as and two to help prepare my daughter's meals.

Joking.

It does sound pretty awesome.

Keep rocking, 'tar.

hand-made version to raise money for manufacturing... kind of like kickstarter, but you get a fully functional item now

I don't know if you have to many orders or not But I'd pay 25 dollars for anything that looks like that. I'll take one if I can still get in on it.

Wow. I'm a little overwhelmed by the response. The transformers are supposed to ship Tuesday, and should take less than a week to get here. The first to make requests will be the first to get them, which includes this thread, and the pm and email I got before I posted this thread. Anyone else, please put your request in this thread, so I don't have to figure out what came first, a post or a pm or an email. Right now I can only find enough of the strainer/sieve things to make 20. For everything else, I can find enough parts. If anyone would rather DIY, you can get the transformer alone from me for ten bucks. Everything else is cheap and easy enough to find on your own.

Once the transformers get here, I'll make a batch of 20. After that, I might have to raise the price a little, just to slow things down a bit. This isn't much of a money-maker for me (obviously). I'll be back to teaching again soon, and won't have as much time to devote to these.

I'd like to be added to the list. PM me if it looks like you've got your hands full, or I can get in on the 20.
