5 Replies and 7551 Views Dredging  7551  5 Started by  Richard367 Went dredging today. I have a Gold Buddy 2.5 inch.  I think I want to toss the little perforated steel sheet that is supposed to protect the integrity of the fines right in front of the crash box. I have the laith wire looking stuff underneath it.The bolt that holds it in seems to be causing rocks to back up. Will I lose gold if I remove the plate

1 Replies and 6857 Views Let miners do it for FREE  6857  1 Started by   Here's a link to check out. I sure hope they made sure the equipment doesn't leak oil, diesel or hydraulic fluid, oh and I'm sure they have all the permits from EPA and Fish and game.  If they would just let us dredge we would do it for free, far less evasiveness, can't imagine the silt there stirring up. Another waste of money by Government.   Rick

0 Replies and 3171 Views Pump size Q's  3171  0 Started by Looking at possibly putting together either a 1 1/2 incher or a 2 1/2 incher.  Would have everything but the pump.  This will be a long arm system, as I don't dive.   What are the average GPM/GPH rates for pumps for those sizes, bearing in mind this will be a suction nozzle rather than a jet system, but might go jet later.  Was kind of figuring the HF 1 inch clear water might be alright for the 1 1/2 incher.

0 Replies and 3733 Views Dredging  3733  0 Started by  Richard367 I have a 2.5 inch suction dredge, I found the setup nice when I am in really shallow water yet when I got a foot or two down I spent more time wrestling with my hoses and it was hard to angle the tip to get around rocks etc. To remedy this I cut about four inches off the suction nozzle and bought five feet of suction hose. Connected the newly acquired hose to the crash box, then the suction nozzle, then the fifteen feet of hose that I had. Using the part of the nozzle I had cut off as my tip. I ...

6 Replies and 6337 Views Air without Compressor  6337  6 Started by I find myself in shallow water quite a bit with my 2' dredge and use my standard old snorkel to float on the top and stay in the water. Is there any way to extend snorkel to go a little deeper A couple of feet maybe I thought about a pvc pipe that the snorkel attaches to, use the 3-4' pvc and an innertube to float it straight up and down, and adjust the depth to the snorkel with the pipe in the innertube and a sock on top of the tube to keep bugs, leaves, trash out... any ideas ...
