35 Replies and 45010 Views Gold cube  45010  35 Started by  minermikey
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I am looking at the Gold Cube and I am wondering which combo works best There is the Cube with the Classifier Plate or the Cube with the Desert Fox Trommel. I am more interested in the quality of processed material than the quantity of material processed although quantity is a factor. If anybody has used the Desert Fox I would like their input as to its performance and durability, especially when it is with the Gold Cube.

It was about twice as big as the foot valve so no restriction of flow.  But where to find such a bag Looked like a good idea though.                      &nbs...

6 Replies and 6827 Views Processing 50 and higher mess for fine gold  6827  6 Started by 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.

2 Replies and 4379 Views The Gold Webb  4379  2 Started by  cmckeever Hi, Saw a You Tube video on 'The Gold Webb.'    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 5077 Views Trailer/Camper  5077  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 ...
