Seed Scarification Sandpaper Trays

Hello, I’m looking to find some photos of sandpaper trays to scarify seeds, in order to show the pictures to craftspeople to make some similar ones here. Particularly interested in designs which allow easy changing of the sandpaper sheet. Thanks


I have used a metal coffee can lined with sandpaper. Put the seeds in, lid on and roll around to scarify. If the seeds are very hard like Okra you can shake and swirl the can a bit more aggressively.

Thanks so much. I’m looking into trays mostly because we’re doing quite large amounts (100kg of each species type of amounts) so I thought it might take a long time in tins, but I’m now thinking they can be upscaled also, so thanks for the ideas.
