Check out this neat tool that would help anyone who is interested in making their own “homemade” screen.
Incase you are wondering – the screen in a well is the section of pipe at the bottom of the well that lets the water in. Homemade screens are simply a 10 ft piece of pipe that you cut lots of small slits in so the water can pass through into your well.
This is a simple compact PVC cutting saw that could be easily carried anywhere in a suitcase.
