    2 1/2" keene dredge header crash box

    Happy new year everyone! I'm looking for one of the older keene dredge header/crash box. The hose inlet is angled down towards the water and most I've seen were painted black. My dredge sluice is 10 inches wide. Anybody have one they want to get rid of? Thanks!

    This item is over 30 years old and can be hard to find...may be a great time to upgrade to a flare

    I currently use a flare. Every weekend. I'm working on a project and need one.

    Let's start where are you so we can suggest reasonable ideas.
    Try E Bay, Craiglist etc.
    If you are close, or don't mind shipping, try some of the west coast mining store such as Armadillo mining or Pioneer mining
    Call Keene and see if there is one in the back floating around, they did a run of crash boxes in several sizes a a few years ago
    Also consider trading to another style dredge. I love my crash boxes but someday I will have to either move on from them or fab my own
    Never confuse motion with progress

    Get some thicker A.B.S. plastic sheet and glue up your own! I've done this and it worked fine! Heck I've even made a flair for several size dredges.......
