1 Replies and 12836 Views Legal Foot Valve 5/64 or 3/32...How?  12836  1 Started by  MOJAVEJOE@VERIZON.NET OK Guys, Foot valve intake screen now has to be 5/64ths square or 3/32nds round holes, in WA.  How is this being accomplished I saw one guy that had a mesh bag with small holes wrapped around his stock foot valve.

6 Replies and 6613 Views Processing 50 and higher mess for fine gold  6613  6 Started by  hunterjoe@comcast.net If you had one choice what would you buy or use to process cons for fine gold  I do understand classification has a big part in this. I have used the blue bowl, bucket sluice and a few diy projects.  Also does the spiral wheel work I thought of building a shaker table. I just wish someone made a shaker table for a small guy. I can not justify spending that type of money for something I would use maybe 1to2 times a year when I go on vacation from FL at GA.

Don't want to go T80/gas powered and only use battery powered unit.

2 Replies and 3983 Views The Gold Webb  3983  2 Started by  cmckeever Hi, Saw a You Tube video on 'The Gold Webb.'  https://www.youtube.com/watchv=ZeQ0U_EmKFc    It claims to recover 'clean gold' from 'black sand.'  One of the questions asked the poster was if it recovers -100 mesh gold.  The poster did not answer.   I was just wondering if anyone has tried 'The Gold Webb' out and did it recover real fine gold.  I have occasion to do beach prospecting and the best I can find is -50 mesh but mostly -100 and smaller.

3 Replies and 4982 Views Trailer/Camper  4982  3 Started by  freddieb Ok here is my new baby. 6x12 trailer that I made some changes to. First it is a little higher on the inside than a standard 6x12 as it has a 6' 6' interior height (bought it that way). Ok now I put shelving and created a table/storage area in the 'V' nose area to put my chairs/cot/personal gear in. Next I made a moveable wall with door to put on the back end to enclose the trailer but have access ( basically creating a camper shell). I also made 2 blocks for the ramp to sit on to turn it into a ...

0 Replies and 3485 Views Cellphone reception  3485  0 Started by  Katra12 Where I am right now (mountainous region in Northeastern Oregon) it is not uncommon to have zero cellphone reception. Since anything can happen from Snakebites to landslides to bad falls or just bad luck, I dislike the idea of being out of contact since most of the time, I'll be prospecting alone. I discussed it with my brother in law and he sent me these two links: http://www.findmespot.com/en/ http://www.findmespot.com/en/ It appears to be an affordable and practical solution to the probl...
