Hi, Paleonetters,

When I prepare marine sediments for microfossils, I wash the <63 or 
<45 um fraction down the sink, but my sediment trap doesn't work very 
well.  I want to buy or fabricate a trap that will do the 
job.  Potters fabricate a two-stage system that looks 
effective 
[http://pottery.about.com/od/studiodesignforpotters/ss/plumb_2.htm]. 
What do you-all use that works?
