Re: Fred makes friends with Mr. Chunky

: I use jac bottles, and i've only had very minimal problems with a
: henna after fredding. Only very rarely will it clog, and when it
: does, it's easily squeezed out with a little extra pressure.
If this is once through a Fred, and that represents the plant scrap
size at 60x that passes through the double cloth ....
this passes through a 7, 5 or a 3 jac tip? I'd like a clear visual
fix on what size plant scrap would be considered acceptable to a
working henna artist. Then ...... one can take a pic of a sample and
say "this is acceptable, I'll buy it" or "this is unacceptable, clean
it up and we'll talk". The Fredded Chunky was scrappier than Jamila,
though the largest particle size was similar .... I wonder just what
the threshold is for "smooth and deadly". And, could two trips
through Fred equal Jamila? Then ... you weigh out the debris and
discuss with the exporter just how much is waste and what you're
actually paying for.
