I power bowl trimmer 16” . Amazon. Have had mine a couple years now. Went by the recommendations here on WP before I actually purchased. You must know that your buds will NOT look like hand trimming. However, when you have a lot to trim it’s a lifesaver, especially when you’ve done a few all-nighters. Lol. I found out by accident if let them sit out 1 day to dry a bit , they trim a lot better . Especially if there real sticky. I’m a bit picky and trim up a-little more than I probably should , but that’s only because I make edibles and I don’t want any trash in my trim.
The bud pictures I posted recently are all trimmed in a bowl trimmer, if your looking for an example. The recent ones were all cut and trimmed right away. There is a spacer that can be put between the grate and the blade it you dont want a real close trim, I leave it out and put the flat side of the knife facing the grate so its almost metal to metal.
One thing I dont care for is they only sell blades in sets of 3 and 2 are the serrated blades for dry trimming so i take a wet stone and re-sharpen mine from the flat side.
thanks for the good info on it. i did see your last pics and they looked great and very frosty ethos strain. im getting ready to run some ethos strains. seeds will be germinating this weekend. how often do the blades need sharpened or replaced ?
I have never kept track really, I just test them like I test my pocket knife, I hold up a piece of paper with one hand and try to slice it with the blade, if it's not a nice clean easy cut I sharpen until it is.
