' The `present invention pertains to a sieve and
more particularly to a portable type of domestic
kitchen ñour sieve of an electrically operated
type including a solenoid control which is eccen
trically mounted and eccentrically connected with
the sieve screen in such a way that the efiiciency
of the sieve is increased.

_It is an object of this invention to provide a
sifting ñour and the like. The sieve of this inven
tion is of the electrically operated type wherein
a sifting screen is eccentrically connected to a
vibration transmitting means to produce a sort
of whipping or undulatory movement in the
screen. to increase the sifting operation thereof.
As shown in the drawing, the reference nu

Other objects and features of the invention will
be apparent from the disclosures in the specifica 45 of the solenoid housing 1. The lower end of the
solenoid plunger is eccentricaliy connected to a

As shown in the drawing:
This invention relates to a. sieve and more par
sieve screen I3 so that when the solenoid is op
erated the vibratory motions from the solenoid
plunger I2 are transmitted to the screen I3 to

the screen to cause the rapid and efûcient sifting
of the flour or other contents' of the sieve through
