I was going to suggest he go watch Fireworking 101 but I think it'd be a waste.
Come on! Name one other hobby in which you cheer as your money and hard work go up in smoke!

For most pyro purposes you can simply use a domestic sieve from a kitchen shop. As your hobby progresses you may like lots of mesh sizes and all in stainless steel. I once bought some smaller mesh squares and pressed them into the cut out bottom of a kitchen storage container using a soldering iron. Easily makes a stacking set of sieves with a top lid and fines catch level (solid, not mesh).


There is a scale of mesh cuts for final BP grading -with some odd numbers. Also sometimes really fine meshes are useful especially with small stars.
