  1. Great to hear it Jim. In case I miss it, will you shoot me a link to your plans when they are dialled in? I hope you still have my email. Jon
  2. Hey Jim, great work! Looking forward to the assays of what you've found. And of course those Wilfley table plans while you are waiting for cooler weather 😉
  3. Surprised the "Uncommon Wisdom" piece didn't even suggest weighing your coins, although it included the word "weight" exactly once, with no context. Knowing the dimensions and the weight of a pure gold coin you are home free. Common sense seems somewhat uncommon among bloggers. Anyone remember Archimedes and the king's crown? This scam has been around for time immemorial. https://sciencing.com/ways-determine-density-2508.html
  4. Chris' book Fists Full of Gold is also loaded with info on running an economical operation. Highly recommended.
  5. I might have to take you up on a set of those plans when they're available, Jim. Tradition and all :) On a tangentially related note, I've often wondered if the magic that is the Wilfley 'saction could be emulated using a programmable logic controller, drivers, and a linear actuator. Best,
  6. James Kwantes is a reputable source IMO, however YMMV. What he reports above is an extract of an annual trip sponsored by the Yukon Mining Alliance for select analysts. In my personal opinion only, I find the VIT stock dilution of ~900M shares too much to swallow. Here is another angle on the same Yukon tour exposing other plays, but without specific details of VIT.V https://ceo.ca/@goldfinger/what-i-learned-in-the-yukon
  7. A de-tuned garage door opener would have no trouble finding a lump that size lol.
  8. XP Deus|ORX HF Elliptical DD 9.5" x 5", no cover, battery in shaft : 280 grams
  9. This is my prospecting dog Dasha, yesterday. After detecting a good spot she often helps by dropping big yellow nuggets in my pan. Now if I could only adjust her discrimination for sticks and tennis balls....
  10. Here's a picture from August of my son and a Thingiverse sluice I printed of PLA. It's not going to stand up to a lot of abuse in the real world that's for sure. I've used the Keene flares; this is much more of a toy, and I doubt it will see use twice.
  11. To which rexhavoc cheekily responded: Badgers? We don't need no steekin' badgers...
  12. Classics noted above. But one that often overlooked nugget is Charlton Heston in "Mother Lode" :) "You stay the hell out of my mind, laddie." Rex
  13. Which parts are 3D printed - the crossbar mounts and/or the mat, and what mateial? I notice there are a few sluice designs on Thingiverse.
