    I have a Keene 140 (old style).  I have been searching for a video showing the does and don'ts on how to operate this equipment.   I would like to see what the riffle board looks like when the machine is running properly.  I know all material is different and the machine should be adjusted to accommodate these differences.  I would like to know the basics on what to look for when it is running correctly and some of the things that would indicate it needs adjusting.  Things like the proper feed rates, slope of the riffle tray and the right amount of air.  I have rerun my tailing to find I am only getting about 70 to 80% of the gold on the first run.  So everything is run twice.  Can anyone point me to a video that may help?
