2 Replies and 727 Views new trommel on Clear creek  727  2 Started by  opalboy42@yahoo.com I got a new Gold Fox trommel, and was dying to try it out. We came down the Mtn to warm up and get some gold! The trommel worked phenomenal! My wife name it Sir Eatsalot! I was amazed at the small gold that it could catch. Panned the tailings and found nothing. Fun time!

1 Replies and 900 Views Rubber Boot or Flap  900  1 Started by  dsevernsgrant@gmail.com Good morning, We have a Keene A52 converted into a high banker with a Keene hopper, our pump is an Honda GX120 with a Keene pump.
