    I have been prospecting for a bit with just a gold pan, classifiers and the like. I now have decided that it is time to add some more equipment to the arsenal. I have been going through various youtube videos dealing with the blue bowl versus the miller table and the spiral wheel. However, the reviews seem like they are split down the middle 50/50. So my question is this; which one would you recommend and why? Also, in regards to the videos; if you could post some links so I can check them out, please do so. I would greatly appreciate it.

    I would step up to a sluice box as the next item if you are working in streams. Your items listed are good for working concentrates, but it all comes down to the pan at both ends--sampling and final separation. I have a miller that I haven't used yet, but plan on setting up after I run some beach black sand thorough my cube a few times. It is supposedly anything from 100 to 600 mesh gold, so the miller will be my final cleanup prior to the muratic acid bath of the remaining cons.
