    Riffle tray build question

    Hey guys, I'm ready to weld up my riffle tray for my highbanker and was wondering what kind of angle i will want to weld the riffles at? Greg at heckler fab told me to vary the spacing and angle of the riffles slightly down the tray, but i need to find a starting point. i will be using the lazy L hungarian style riffles. is 45 a good starting angle? Thanks!

    47 You could start out with flat stock angled then go into the L's just really change it up for the best results. I just have the 4lb expanded in mine with a slick plate. I'm sure that you've read this but here it is again. http://www.hecklerfabrication.com/fi...-partIII-2.pdf

    Dont do all the riffles at the same angle
    Do each of them at a different angle, that will improve your recovory

    keep it simple...I hate unnecessarily complex things

    Where are you mining?
    That will have something to do with the design.

    My riffles will be in the mail tuesday. Their all I've been waitin for. Ill post some pics of the whole project here shortly after I'm done. I got into contact with greg from heckler, and he told me to vary the space from 2.5 to 4 inches while keeping the top lip varied slightly down the run with the angle not being less then 0 . And I'm in trinity county ,ca gold country. We have some real coarse stuff up this way. some smaller flakes to but, it tends to be on the chunkier side in a lot of places we work. if i knew how to post pics id post a pic of the kind of gold we deal with. thanks for the help guys!

    My mining partner has one of those honda wh15 1.5" high pressure pump pushin 115 per min. Should be plenty to get us up and goin. Eventually i want one of those 2 or 3" duramax semi trash pumps when i can afford it.
