View Full Version : Cheap most DIY 2oz kif box
10-16-2009, 04:11 AM
I would like to thank Quixotic for helping me with this.
The box itself is a $7-$10 28g/27L sterilite sweater box (http://www.spacesavers.com/ster-28-quart-underbed-tote.html). To this was added a custom 14" x 21", 110micron, economy grade wood frame (http://www.melray.com/home/categories/174) from Mel Ray Industries, a little more than $11. (The corners had to be cut from the frame to make it fit in the box). Finally, a $4 3piece set of plastic putty knives (http://www.acehardwaresuperstore.com/ace-economy-plastic-putty-knives-p-3441.html?ref=42) from Ace Hardware. Total cost = $22-$25.
Although you can't shake too aggressively or leaf goes over the edge of the screen and into the box this box has proven quite effective at kifing both bud and sugar trim. Pix are of sugar trim kif. 89.4g sugar trim produced 10.4g good kif. The capacity limit for completely unprocessed plant matter appears to be about 2 oz but is around 3 if the stuff as been broken down a bit already.
Hope this helps some of you looking to make a cheap effective kif box of your own without too much muss or fuss.

Great looking unit pf....wtg! I saw a DIY "tumbler" several years ago that had I don't know the micron of the screen, but it seemed to be like "silk screen" material that was on it. It had an opening and a "spindle" thru the middle of it which was connected to a small motor, which after dumping the meds inside and closing it up, it was placed into a cardboard box that had the ends cut out for the ends of the spindle and a mirror was on the bottom of the box. It got plugged in, turned on it's own at a slow pace and every hour or so you could scrape quite a bit from the mirror depending on the meds used. Barring my lack of tools and/or know-how, this solution of yours looks like a great way to simply and inexpensively do the same thing. Thanks for the pics and the idea.....it looks easy enough to show to some of my friends with tools.....lol. I don't think my screwdriver and hammer would do it...hehehehe. Thanks again, great idea! :D :D
Peace and One Love,

nice post. I only thing I'm thnking is because of the plastic tote used to collect the heads,wouldnt some of the glads get lost because of the static,kind of like using plastic bags. Really nice DIY post.

hehehe wow, quite intuitive and experienced you seem to be on this richi. there is indeed a small but typically insignificant portion that can't be collected because it is "flung" away by static charge repulsion. like i said tho this appears to have minimal impact expect on very small batches... larger the batch the less of an impact since the amount lost appears to be about the same regardless of size of batch, smaller batches might actually loose a little more since more charge per particle is built up in the collection process.
Good thing i have a small enclosed kif box for small batches. :rolleyes:

I made one of these a few years ago and I am going to make me a new one here soon As soon as I am all healed up from my surgery on my mouth I am going to build me a new kif box. I have all the stuff to make it. I will do pictures to show all!
I have taken a cigar box that I got for free! First, I took and sawed about 1/2 inch(maybe just a little smaller) from the front side so I could take a peice of glass or mirror to side into the bottom of the cigar box to collect the kif! then I took a silk scarf I got at a yard and hot glued it to the top inside of the cigar box about maybe half way down the box I glue a piece of the scarf. Now you could use some small peice of wood to make an edge around the scarf kind of like framing it up. there you go kif box!

for silk screen 110 mc you can go to an art supply store like wallacks and buy it off a role.... $20 for 1 yard by i donno 48'..
also for a kief box i was thinking get your screen and frame it..
then by on of those 1.5 ft x 3 ft x 6 in clear rubermaid bins...
cut hole in bottem of rubermaid the size of screen but smaller than frame
attach screen frame to bottem of rubermaid, fill with trim, replace lid,
and shake your ass off over a glass table or any flat surface
"Although you can't shake too aggressively or leaf goes over the edge of the screen and into the box this box"........... thanks for initial r n d ;)

once the plastic is coated with a fine layer of dust, the rest will not adhere to the established layer already on the plastic walls etc because the static bond has been broken. someone three posts prior had the right idea that it won't build despite continuous use per session. however if you don't scrape it once in a while then humidyty will cause the particles to adhere already established layers of dust and become very hard. hopefully none of us is so rich that we can ignore a buildup of bubble-the best side product.
