Has anyone made a crevice sucker?
I was thinking of buying one until I saw the price locally, cheapest ones are $110 + $15 shipping, seems a bit much for what they are, looks like people are making some out of PVC pipe but I can't find any decent plans online to use to make one.
If anyone has some good plans they would be greatly appreciated.
Ok, I'm a newb, and maybe a bit impressionable, but this really caught my attention. It's a long video by Doc of Gold Hog, but if you jump to about 20:00 you'll just see it in action to see for yourself. It's essentially a small short sluice that is hand operated. He processes a bucket in less time that it took me to do one pan (first day of panning). I figure this is a good way to run some material quickly, without the sluice.
I'm just beginning and hope this isn't a hoax, but it sure looks to make a lot of sense. Maybe someday I'll have a dredge or high banker, but this sure beats the pan for concentrating and suits my budget.
Hope you enjoy the vid as much as I did!
After researching every gold wheel available, priced under $1,000.00? The Keene GW25, 25in diameter gold wheel proves to be the most bang for the buck, being able to produce gold dust-sized gold, and feed 400+ lbs of material per hour.
At $475, it can't be beat.
Hi Folks, say you hypothetically had a fair amount of crushed ore to process, and due to the amount of mustard gold in quantities worth recovering, what would you recommend and why?
Water can be a problem so recirculating would be good, portability is a big want, will be using mercury and a retort due to the mustard gold.
Open to suggestions.
