    My new miller table

    Its ok to laugh but it works.I painted the bottom of my dredge/highbanker with chalkboard paint.You can see the fine gold on cleanouts a lot better.I can adjust angle and waterflow.It is now a true all around machine.

    I'm glad you posted this! I think I'm going to try it with a couple of Keene's I have. I know it's important to make sure the water flow is like glass, with no other turbulance.

    i scuffed up my aluminum sluice surface and i primed my original Miller table i made.and i applied two coats of blackboard spray paint to it and let each coat dry in the sun.it still scratched a little,and over time i can see reappling the paint.thats why i changed over to useing the slate. it worked ok, but the slte works much better IMHO!but i can see a possible benifit of useing this paint on all of your sluices,even under the riffels/matting.

    I like it . Do they have the paint in green? I have been thinking about doing that to my A52. But that's as far as I got with it.... Nice color OBP. I have 1 bucket of -50 cons and 1 bucket of -100 I need to get done and out of my way... I hope all is well with you and yours OBP.
    GOD BLESS

    My buddy just built his first miller table. He used a couple different materials, but ended up sticking with self-healing hobby mat. It's green, water resistant, easy to cut, and already micro-textured. You can find it at most hobby shops, and for sure at fabric supply stores. Not sure about price, bit prob cheaper than finding and cutting slate...I ll post pics of it running later.
