I just made the mistake of purchasing a plastic seed sieve. I've only used it a couple of times, and already regret not purchasing a larger metal one - but they were so much more expensive. I've decided to give it a go and call it a learning experience.

My biggest problem is that there's a lot of static electricity that builds up on the plastic and the both the seeds and chaff stick to it. Any tricks to preventing this from happening?

An ionizer might help neutralise static charges building up on plastic surfaces but this sounds uneconomic. You can't drain static from a plastic surface to ground. You need to replace with a metal sieve.
