    I think it's a mater of preference If you want peace and quiet you use a puffer, if you want lotsa gold use a blower, no I don't know which is best but I think you can run more material with a blower. I wana get a puffer too! Check this site http://olyeller.wordpress.com/gen-2-photos/

    Nice looking unit. Unfortunately my experience is more with wood than metal. But that is tempting to try.

    I am under the belief blower drywashers move material faster. Puffers are definitely more peaceful. I wont argue that. We all find our own style and pace. There is no wrong way as long as you are having fun and your machine traps gold. =) BTW a little note to those who may consider making their own drywasher. I started this thread a couple years ago. I've made a couple modifications, but my unit is still running just fine. Modifications made: I chopped my riffle height to trap less concentrates. I copied wizbangs idea to adjust the hopper angle and I've drilled out and replaced a couple rivets. Nothing more really other than changing the air plate cloth which is a common need on all drywashers. Ohh, and considering the requests I have had over the last 2 years I may indeed change my mind and begin producing drywashers for sale I have been on many club outings and prospecting campouts where I meet folks randomly. Not once have I received a negative comment on my drywasher. I have ideas to modify the design and put it into production so I may have to eat my statement earlier in this thread about putting them to market.
