I had a plate made that says (GoldMnr) for Arizona.  1 Plate state, so 1 on my truck for a license plate.  1 on front of my motorhome to display my passion.  May work in other states.

Aurthur,

 it is a great idea, we tried the Dewalt vac and works great.  More than enough run time, light weight.  Thanks for the thought.

An idea for the store is the J hook that's pictured in my Gold Mining Bucket thread. It can securely hook your Pan & Classifier on the outside of your bucket. It works great.

LDMA Name Badges....  Are these still available?  If so, please provide a link.  

 

When my mining partner (spouse) and I joined up in June, we thought that a LDMA Name Badge would be easy to find and acquire.

     Brad, do you get the Pick & Shovel Gazette?  If so look under Miners Marketplace.  Or call Barry at 530-501-6009 or you can also try " Engraversintime.com " or e-mail " engraveit@netzero.net ".     Ron

- I second the Hermit Picks!
- A wide variety of CMS or K&J Rare Earth Neodymium Magnets (especially Countersunk for adding to Poles and Shafts)
- Snake Guardz in different colors.
- Estwing's Picks, Rocks Chisels, Rock and Crack Hammers, Pry Bars Etc.
- A set of Small Stone Chisels
- A set of 8" to 24" Heavy Duty Pry Bars
- 3 to 5 feet long "Plumber Spade" Pry Bars which are great for Mining. (Anyone who caught an episode of Prospectors, would have seen these commonly used)
- A MUST - This is the best, high quality rig, set-up for anyone who likes to keep their tools close or on them while Prospecting, Mining or Metal Detecting: The Camouflaged Mullet Buster Suspension Rig from Bucket Boss. Made of Mossy Oak rip stop 600D/poly fabric.
- The Estwings Harness Belt and Bags (great for Rock Hounding and Prospecting)
- A varity of Finds Bags, I have several different ones that I love. (Will return to list my favorites later)
- A wide varity of crevicing tools (Will return to list later)
- A good set of Tweezers and Surgical Picks designed for Gold Prospecting. (I can get the brands out there if needed)
- Field Magnifying Lupes
- Tool Bags heavy duty enough to carry everything to and from the field. (I have so many and sadly still haven't found anything I feel is perfect but I am currently using a Large Military Canvas Duffle Bag with Side Access Zippered)
- A framed Back Pack for tools (will list best choices when I return)
- Non-Metallic Tactical or Work Boots for Desert and Mountain Prospecting i.e. Bates makes some really good ones.
- Wet Suits and Water Waiters
- Many more Metal Detectors especially the most popular Nugget Shooting machines. (I will START with a Garrett ATX and add more later when I return.)

( I HAVE ALOT MORE BUT RAN OUT OF TIME - I WILL RETURN TO EDIT AND ADD)

I add to the Hermit Pick. I use mine detecting and digging to get paydirt to sluice and at hone to weed the garden. They are great all around tools.

I was going to edit my post, add details but maybe it's so old that my suggestions wouldn't be read by the powers that be... Not sure. Am I too late to the party? LOL

Shane, this party never stops!  It is never too late to add to the wish list.  Paul and GPAA staff are always looking to improve our experience with the right tools for the job!

I took a torsion bar from a Ford Ranger, cut in half.  Put a chisel tip on the cut ends.  Has the big hex head on the other ends.  Used for breaking open cracks in bedrock in conjunction with a 4 lb hammer or bigger. 

Something along those lines might be feasible.

How about the Minilab Gold Monster 1000? If you would offer it I would possibly buy it along with the original rotating pan machine. I'm sorry, I can't remember the name. The one that folds up and is easy to carry in a back pack.  











  If you can't offer these, do you know of anywhere I might be able to buy  one used?

Gloves, but really good flexible so you can dig with your hands and will last more than a couple of hours. I chew up gloves , sometimes 2 pair a day.

These go over my tactical utility vest ..which provides a plethora of pockets from which are filled with ..well....a plethora of gear lol.....real good pair of boots.... weather appropriate clothing .....a Unted Cutlery M48 tactical shovel which connects to the utilty belt and a good prospectors pick with magnets ....crevice tools...toothbrush ....ok...gonna stop before i start naming everything lol....but most important are the gear that make me comfortable, safe, and get the "work" done.....everything else is for convience....and that is why i have so many pockets Work smart not hard......well if anyone has any questions etc ...please feel free to drop me a line ............Happy prospecting!!!
