    I don't think "nice job" quite fits for a first time effort, if that's your first home made drywasher WOW!! that is brilliant ! looks great and you even added a (never seen before) dust cover. Jack you got some mad skills there buddy!

    Re: Built my first drywasher...

    Been away for a while. Honestly surprised to see my two threads still idling near the top of this drywashing topic. I went up to the "Gold Mountain" Gpaa claim in Holcomb Valley this weekend. I nabbed a half gram of color. Still using the same drywasher. Pretty color up there, its chunky and comes from close to the source. The mountain is covered in metamorphic limestone...I.E Marble. What that means is ancient limestone has undergone extreme pressure and heat and crystalized. Allowing quarts veins to intrude along with Au deposits. For so-cal its a good claim. Elevation is 7k plus. If you go make sure your heart is in good shape. The air is thin.

    Jack thanks for all the help ie pics/measurements. I used ideas from several drywashers but yours helped the most, this is the Wizbang Hybrid check it out.

    JACK,
    THAT IS A REALLY GREAT PIECE OF WORK.
    GREAT IDEAS. GREAT WORK. WELL DONE.
    I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE METAL BRAKE THAT YOU BUILT FOR 30 BUCKS.

    KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.

    GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS.

    Re: Built my first drywasher...

    HERES an IDEA you guys with the metal drywashers need to test.
    First off your plastic plates that are suppossed to create a static charge, you need to insulate the" feet/base legs" of the machine touching the ground then try to take some readings with a meter. By "insulating" I mean use rubber or wood to keep the metal from touching the ground and acting as a ground to any charge.
    Then set it up without the insulated legs and take some readings.
    Please post what you find if you have the time to do these tests.
    Take care guys. an Hapy Huntn

    Frank if you look closely at my drywasher you will see the lower box is insulated from the ground. Frank I would do those test but I don't have any idea what type of meter to use any sugestions let me know?

    WIZBANG,

    I WENT BACK AND READ MY POST AND REALIZED THAT I REALLY CAME OFF AS RUDE.
    I DIDN'T MEAN TO IGNORE YOUR POST EARLIER. BOTH MACHINES ARE TOP NOTCH!
    I JUST GOT CAUGHT UP IN THE METAL BRAKE THAT HE BUILT FOR $30.
    I HAVE TRIED TO BUILD ONE FOR MY SELF AND MONEY ALWAYS GETS IN THE WAY, AND I WANTED TO SEE HOW HE DID IT.

    SORRY FOR MY BAD MANNERS. BAD CASE OF TUNNEL VISION.

    H.H. AND GOD BLESS

    Re: Built my first drywasher...

    Oh hay, Mikel
    I didnt take it that way. But to build my break I used 3 36" pieces of 3" angle iron and two heavy door hinges, had to grind on the angle so the angles would sit flush at hing point and then welded the hinges in place, used some clamps to hold the material between the iron. If that makes any since. You can Google Cheep metal break and some dude has pics on the inernet. GGoooodd Luckand happy building

    Re: Built my first drywasher...

    my homemade drywasher is a blower type and it works fine for me. but ive been hearing that most people are getting away from this type and going back to puffers.my drywasher got beat up over the years and im redoing it and was thinking of building it into a puffer and use a 12vdc motor to run it. has anyone else heard this tobe true?
