    Keith I am borrowing a page from your book. I installed my snuffer bottle using a snap-on tee fittings and a 1-1/4" PVC coupling, works like a charm. Thanks for the idea.

    After going to half dozen places looking for 1/2" tubing that was somewhat flexible I decided to order 2ft. of Latex Surgical Tubing with 1/2"ID x 3/4"OD in black to connect the pump to the Miller Table. I will give the Miller Table a run next week to see first hand how the matting capture fine gold. I mounted the pump to a piece of 1/4" cutting board material to keep the pump upright within the tub.

    about your snuffer bottel holder, years back ,when i was still working i bent up a bunch of alum snuffer bottel holders and passed them out at our clubs last meeting of the year. they held 2 snuffer bottels and one 12oz holder for whatever you wanted tobe held!i i bent a lip on this so that you could hang it from your panning tub. I may make somemore of them whenever i have the time!

    Chasindadream,

    If you have any question feel free to ask. Inside the header box I installed an absorption pad that the spray bar sprays onto. This will allow for the water to be released onto the matting evenly. The spray of water hits along the red line. Good luck and like to see your finished Miller Table.

    The table is complete. I should have the Latex tubing Monday and be running con. Will do a video of the table capturing fine gold. Using those snap-on tee fittings I made a raised stand to keep the pump above the bottom of the tub and to secure the pump so the entire Miller Table, Pump can be removed as one complete unit.

    Took some con and sized it as seen in the image below. Will setup the Miller Table this week and capture some video of just how well it does. I have sample con that passed through each of these sizes, 100, 70, 50, 30 mesh screens.

    Actually AZViper Your quote below is the best part of your thread.
    "If you have any question feel free to ask. Inside the header box I installed an absorption pad that the spray bar sprays onto. This will allow for the water to be released onto the matting evenly. The spray of water hits along the red line. Good luck and like to see your finished Miller Table."

    I have a similar set up for my mini wave table. It produces an even, tranquil water flow far superior to anything else out there. Only difference is my wave table only needs a fraction of a miller tables water flow so my pad's holes are quite a bit smaller.

    The Miller Table is completed and I hope to run some material in the morning. I would like to run the material today but I have a Tundra that needs brakes. Have already pulled the rotors and having the rotors turned. I really like the way the entire project turned out. The latex tubing was the ticket of having a soft pliable tubing that can take a radius bend and not kink.

    I wanted to see how well the Miller Table would hold onto the heavier gold as I may just use the table to capture all gold from my cons. As you can see the heavier gold stayed in place. The remaining con will be saved for future clean out for the ultra-fine gold running at a much slower water flow.

    That dark black looking spot where I am placing the con is a flaw in the rubber of the color only. Did not notice this when installing the mat but it does not affect the capture of gold.

    The key to capturing the gold is the water flow rate in relation to the amount of angle of the table. I started out at 8 degrees. The finer the gold the less angle of the table and slower water flow. The video was strictly to demonstrate the speed in which the table can be run at and still hold the gold. In the field I would be more incline to slow the water down and slightly less angle.

    Yep it does hold the gold. Now just need to run black sand con I have at a much slower water flow and recover the ultra-fine gold that most never recover.
