    Cool River Rocker Plans

    Backing up files on my computer ran across Jack Swick's river rocker plans
    I believe since they were publicly available to download they are public domain.
    thought this might be a good winter project for someone, change it around,
    put different mat's in it, change the rocker part to just handles or something.

    If you change it around to what you suggest winners58, would it not be a lot like the new pan GH has out that has the word "FLOW" in it?

    It's more a classifier/sluice all in one when there is no place to setup a sluice box.
    I like Doc's pan the "flow" is letting the river do the work instead of the shaking of a regular pan.
    .
    one version of the river rocker is the Montana rocker

    Its pretty close to being a pan with a handle on it, think it will be OK in hands and pans areas? i can use my small steel pan as a digging tool....

    The pdf version of the plan is sligthly different.:

    Does the Montana gold pan really need the miner's moss and expanded? Aren't riffles enough just like in the pyramid pro pan?

    If memory serves the pyramid pro pan has a removable trap in which the gold hopefully funnels into.

    Those are my 2 videos under the plans
    There is a guy on Amazon selling the plans as a dry washer classifier.
    He is passing it off as his design seeing the description touts himself with having several years of engineering experience.
    That is a rough quote but close.
    My Jack Swick DVD is toast so I thank you for posting plans.
    I also have the Pyramid pro pan.
    I bought it after buying a tiny palm pyramid pan at Coos canyon.
    That little pyramid pan had a thumb notch and I could go through allot of material with a palm sized pan.
    Love the Pyramid pro pan.
