  1. Gold fever has been particularly bad as I am not able to get up into the mountains until the end of the month, so I decided to give the park a try. I found as expected, tons of trash but near the end of my search I came across a small 925 charm. Not worth much but it really drove home the point that I need to start thinking outside the box.
  2. That’s really great! Yes, PLA tends to be very brittle and does not like to be left in hot cars but this is awesome, I’m glad there are others out there wanting to print their own gear.
  3. @LipCa Thanks, I’m just trying to help people avoid paying outrageous amounts for China’s overpriced plastic.
  4. This took me a day or so to rough out but i’d say three or four more to troubleshoot and refine. Here is the link I just made https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3082273 Make sure to print with supports. Let me know if you run into any issues!
  5. The whole bowl is 3D printed as one piece as well as the brackets. It’s like a 1/3 scale of any regular blue bowl, with the lip around the rim and everything. Only the hardware, pump and tubs are store bought!
  6. This is a 3D printed blue bowl version 1, it worked amazing for doing my last big clean up and sucked the sand away very quickly. I didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg so I built my own, leave an e-mail if you want the file. The whole project cost me less than 30 bucks or so. Parts: -172 GPH Pump -3/8 Tubing -On/Off Valve -12 #10-24x1in Screws -9 #10 Washers -Rectangle Tub -Small Bucket -Printed Parts
  7. Yea man it is pretty sweet, perfect for cleanups! We must have similar minds and hobbies. I actually just finished a quick project you might like. I will post in a sec.

    Odd Gold

    This gold was taken from an area with a BUNCH of springs next to old adits. Would that make sense for what you are talking about.

    Yea I just plucked them out of some cons so it is likely black sand. Thanks for the insight, and that is a mighty fine nugget there!

    Has anybody seen anything like these? Is it just iron staining or something?

    Unexpected Find

    Huh,could be! Although it is likely just quartz. Any simple way to differentiate?
  13. Sometimes you go out looking for gold and come home with other treasures! I just happened to stumble on a bunch of this stuff when I was bent over trying to catch my breath near the top of a local peak.

    Any Good Advice For Southern Oregon?

    Thank you all for the responses and info, ill message you when I get some time Gary. This is the second time I have heard about quartzville so I’ll check it out. Would you say the wolf creek area is a good place to start down south?
  15. Hi there folks, I have been prospecting for the better part of two years now (I’m 23) and have for the most part stuck to my grandparents property in California finding pickers and occasional small nuggets. I’m now living in Eugene going to school at the university and trying to find the time to get out and put my SDC to work. From what I have heard there is pretty great gold in Southern Oregon and I’m just putting the feelers out to see if anyone might have some useful advise or resources that could point me in the right direction. I’d also like to start making connections with folks in the community so feel free to let me know if you would like to let a young guy tag along or if you have a need for a big truck -Hayden
