  1. I have used the swivel nozzle on my 2" Keens, but took it off after the swivel keep getting fine sand in it and would not trun. Sometimes it was even upside down and need a big long handle of something to work it loose. They are good when they work, but if locked up then a pain. Hope yours work better if you get one.

    2" Keene Dredge

    Thanks All, Don't want to get into a big fuss over this. This is just something I have been working on over the cold weather here. I test my tailing and lose very little with the 2" Keens, but run slow so not to blow any out. I was thinking that use the same motor as the 2" and run faster would let me move more dirt. The 3" has a 5 horse motor, and that is load by itself. I think I will try the 3" sluice on the 2" frame and that motor, and run faster. I do get good gold from where I go, there was a mine back in the 1800's on top of the hill where I go. Every spring there is more gold in the same spots I did the year before. Biggest piece is about a 10th of a gram. I sometimes go and just pan when it is to cold to get in the water and get 6 or 7 pieces in a pan. Going to try and make it out more this year. With a broken back and a plate in my neck, some days when it is cold I just can't make it. If anyone has more info, put it to me. I am 67 years old and try to do what I can till my time comes. Thanks for all the help. Dean

    2" Keene Dredge

    Hi Swamp, do you think the 2" floats will float the 3" sluice and use the 3" hose? I have boath set ups, It is just the 3" hose and high banker is just so much heavier than the 2". I prospect in OHIO, and the gold is very small, I got to go about 6 times last year and ended with 1.10 OZ. of gold. Going to try and do better this year. thanks Dean
  4. Hi All, I have a 2" Keene dredge and a 3" Keene HighBaker, I use the 2" 90% of the time cause the 3" high banker about to much for me to get to the small creek I go to. I get very small gold at this creek but a lot of it. Do you think if I fit the 3" sluice box on my 2" floats I can get better gold recovery? I never run my Honda full blast anyway. I was just thinking the bigger sluice will keep more small gold. What do you all think? Thanks Dean

    Gold In Clay

    Hi tboykin, The Grout/mud mixer, will work. I frond gold with clay and put a half of a 5gal. bucket with water and mix the heck out of it. Take a lid and put a hole in middle so the water and mud don't fly out. I frond most of the gold was just on top of the clay, not much in it. Hope this helps some, Dean
  6. Be sure that if your magnet is just a plain magnet, and not a gold recovery magnet, that you put it in a plactic bag or bottle or you can't get the black sand off the magnet.
  7. About 6 or 8 mi. from Wickenburg is Congress and the RoadRunner club has some claims that they let me pay buy the week. That was a few years ago.
  8. That might not be awesome to some, but to me , I love it. I like any and all buckles. That is a nice one.

    Never Before - White's Discount Coupon

    I got 200.00 for a write up about the MXT, when they first came out. That was about the year 2000, I think. I still have that detector and bough a new demo MXT when they stopped making the reg MXT. I just got it for a back up, but don't think my 2000 model is going to quit . I love the Whites detectors, I have two MXT's, a Eagle 11 sl, a 5900, a 6000 Di Pro, Beach hunter ID. I think I have two many detectors.

    A Shoutout To Whites

    Whites is one heck of a good detectors and people to work with.
  11. I have been on here a long time, but don't post a lot. I don't live where I can detect for gold, but I do prospect with a dredge and do metal detect a lot. I just like all the info on here and if I would of had a lot of gold detecting info like you all, I would post more. I do love to read and see the gold pic. I might want to sale a detector one of these days but the 10 post is ok with me. Dean

    Deus Ver4 Wait May Be Over

    Hi Rick, What does the version 2, do that the 3.2 don't do? My Deus has the 3.2, Do you think the .2 would do better on coins? Thanks Dean

    What Happened The Deus New Coil Option?

    That's what I say, there is nothing wrong with the Deus 3.2. I would like a small coil also, but if I need to wait till it is ready I will wait. I ask Gary B. last week if he thinks the Deus will have a 6" or 7" DD coil come out and he said that XP is always working on something, so I will use what works for me and wait. I love the Deus, would just like a small coil. Dean
  15. Hi Beatup, I had a 4'' but just to much for me to. I am lucky I can get my 2" in and out of the water. I have a 3" combo also and thinking about putting it on floats. I like my 3" but by the time I get it all packed in and set up, I am about had. I do ok with the 2". I can just let it down the bank with a rope and have it in the water. To get it back up is a little harder, I just hook it to my old van and pull it up.
