I use the stainless 400-600 micron strainer that you would see in any of the mags. I think it was like $40.00, and does a nice job. Sits on top of the bucket, and strains the honey from the spinner into the bucket. I draw the honey for bottling from the bottom of the bucket after it sits for a couple of days so what ever floats up ends up in the last few jars. We use the last few jars for home use or give a way.
