0 Replies and 4960 Views 2 Metal Detectors  4960  0 Started by  pat2090 I have an older Garrett Treasure Ace 300 in great shape. Still works fine and body shows little wear. Would be a great one for beginners. I also have a Titan 9000 in new shape. It has never been in the field. Works great. I am asking $300 for both or I would trade for a panning machine in very good shape. I am also in need of the spiral bowl for a Gold Screw panning machine. Call or text 623-826-7629.

24 Replies and 16057 Views Need Help Choosing Metal Detector  16057  24 Started by  trevor@ttallman.com So new to metal detecting but have been doing research for the last 2 months. I understand you need to buy a detector based on what your hunting, but I was hoping someone could give me first hand advice on a detector setup that is good at prospecting for gold, (in CA deserts mostly) as well as beach combing for jewelry etc.   Anyone have any ideas  Was bouncing between Garrett AT Gold or Minelab Safari Pro.  Both have pro's and cons...   Anyone have any suggestions Any...

5 Replies and 4038 Views leaking dredge floats  4038  5 Started by  nodnorthewise@gmail.com Hello,  I have a pair of the older 1pc. yellow floats from a 4' dredge platform that leak. Someone in the past tried to patch them with fiberglass but they're still leaking.   I have thought about trying to seal them with elastomeric paint or membrane paint as it is also known, the rubberized paint that is used on roof tops and camper/mobile home roofs.  Has anyone ever tried this to repair floats I am open to all suggestions for inexpensive ways to seal them and...

4 Replies and 9026 Views DIY Handheld Suction dredge Help  9026  4 Started by  dsnewsom I have been toying with a homemade hand dredge, simalr to ones you can buy at the gold shows for about $100. I've seen lots of videos on you tube about how to make them and I have a pretty good one built. My problem, however, is that I am not getting the suction I need. I have tried using foam cut from pipe insulation and have even made my own leather cup seals. The leather cup seals have worked the best but it still isnt giving me good enough suction to use in the field.    I have a...

6 Replies and 9891 Views Kickin Donkey/ Pro-Gold quality  9891  6 Started by  The Mental Detectorist Not to be a stickler but I have seen first hand some very concerning quality control issues with Kickin Donkey products. I was optimistic at first  and wanted a cascade highbanker and black magic, but after seeing 2 of my friends purchases from kicking donkey/pro-gold I have changed my mind. I went in with one buddy 3 weeks ago and he dropped almost $400 on a large sluice package and also a black magic. The black magic demo they had in shop you could see the rubber matting peeling up, con...

It Should prove successful. I wanted it because it is small enough to fit into a backpack but yet big enough to run a decent amount of material. When I had first seen an Angus MacKirk sluice a couple of years ago for the first time I had my doubts about them, but then I have seen several different models in action and I was nothing but impressed, I needed to get one. I like the ease of set u...

1 Replies and 6253 Views Backpack Classifier  6253  1 Started by  whitedge@gmail.com A 35 mesh nylon bag that fits inside a 5 gal bucket. Drop a shovel full of gravel in the green bag and use the handles like a rocker sluice to work the fine gold out into the water in the bucket. Set the bag aside and check with a metal detector for flakes. No signal then discard and repeat. Very effective, inexpensive, lightweight and super strong. Good for holding smaller item like snuffer bottles, etc. I have never tried as a 'dry' classifier so I do not know if it would work in the desert. A...

2 Replies and 7369 Views Floats  7369  2 Started by  mfrank@netzero.com Let the fun begin.. I have started building the floats for my 4' and my 2 1/2' dredges. I am using the material that Doc from Gold Hog used to build his. From his calculations the floats should float 640lbs total and I will use half for the 2 1/2'. Since I don't know how much shoveling I will be able to do since my surgeries I do know I can float to use the dredge. I can have a battle of the dredges with my daughter Erica and we should be able to move more dirt..
