    I like it! Very impressive.

    Have any photos?
    Would like to see the whole unit from end to end and a break down of the sluice.

    You should see his highbankers ! He has some very nice builds , that's a very big complement (I am a welder/fabricator myself ) In my personal opinion his are better built than anything else on the market. All his are on the custom level !

    The first test went very well, It did not sink... spent the day adjusting the water flow, angle, and did a couple of hours actually running material to ensure the under current box was cleaning out without blowing it out. To my surprise there was a lot of fine gold in the lower under current box with some in the upper.
    This next weekend I plan on doing some control test with BBs, and different size lead shot to see where the recovery really is.

    Russ I had to put my name on it so I would know which one is mine. They all look the same

    If you find the thief, stuff him under a river boulder, under about 10 feet of water!

    Can't wait to see the new finished dredge.
