phrunt (Simon) lives not far from me. We have been communicating through PM. My sluice boxing & dredging days have passed. Mostly due to needing a claim to do it legally & they are just far too expensive with all the red tape, bureaucracy, on going fees & hoops you have to jump through. Just not worth it on a hobby scale. The rivers have all been plundered in the past & all/most of the good gold long gone. I had a lot of fun making & using my own gear but my rock wrestling days are over. Detecting suits me very well as there are no claims where I go, so I aren't treading on any toes. Cheers

wow, your sluice looks exactly like my keene sluice, I can't believe you made it, well done.  I like the bucket with the holes, I will have to do that. I like your dredge, that would save a lot of manual labour, I get quite the sore back at the end of the day from digging gravel :)

fredmason - its a great community isn't it, I ask a question and get replies with everything I could need plus more.
