It required a little fiddling to get this working well - a touch more tension on the belts, adjusting the plough blades slightly, etc etc.. But it does work! And very well. Yipppy.

I can set the microwave timer, and off it goes mulling up the sand... Water can easily be added to make it the right consistency, and it quickly gets evenly mixed throughout the green sand.

While you're here I may as well share my recipe for green sand:

10% finely ground bentonite clay (cat litter), 90% fine beach sand, some water, that's it! I may experiment with some more exotic mixes now I have easy mixing technology..

Here a little video of it in action (sorry it's on FB for the mo. Will upload and embed when I get a chance).
