Here is a crusher I've made that works well. Go to a rural hardware store and by a "fence post hammer". It is an iron tube that slips over iron fence posts. Also pick up one of those iron poles that have a wedge shaped on one end and what looks like a nail-head on the other. Take them to a welder. Have one of the handles cut off of the hammer. Put the nail-head into the hammer and have him cut it, leaving enough of the bar sticking out so he can weld on a "T" handle. Make sure the handle is high enough up from the hammer so you don't whack your hands on the hammer when using it! Last, have him weld on a bottom plate large enough to put at least one foot on it, both is better. Make sure the single handle still on the hammer is facing PERPENDICULAR to the plate so it does not interfere with your knees, which will be close when operating the crusher.  You now have a rock crusher that can be passed onto the kids.... if it doesn't walk off! Added bonus... you also have a wedge bar left over for breaking into crevices. You can crush rocks now into powder. Do not use water as the flour you want will stick inside.  TTC

Me and my brother hiked 2 miles up some steep mountains in central utah and found a bunch of rocks that we wanted to smash and check out, after awhile we sat and ate some food and my bro picked up a small quartz rock probably half a lemon size while we were sitting there and when we got home we smashed them all seperatly and no doubt there was a good size picker in that quartz rock..

If I find any rock with heavy mineralization, metal of any kind, iron whatever I will bring home the rock and crush it. It could be quartz, conglomerate or what ever I will crush it. Check this video out as to how I do it. :



John, I have been posting  videos on Treasurenet.com for years. How can I do it here?  TTC
