    the more i look in to riffles iam finding part of the problem is that riffles for water are backwards from the drywashing ones.so you have to be looking at ones for what you are dong.

    More Pictures of Dry Warshers!

    I used these pictures to get the angle of the riffle tray. I figured the Old Timers got it right as they were doing it for a living not just PLAYING like we do.

    HA! That old Becks was mine at one time... that image is in the front walk of my house. Sold it to a fella up in J Tree a couple of years ago. That design worked VERY well, heavy large beast though.

    Small World isn't it dsrtdwg1.
    I liked the small sampler as it could go on top of my pack along with my other crevicing gear in a couple of 3 gallon Fire Clay patching buckets. They are Very Tough.
