    I have found many uses for and built lots of mining equipment with my 30 inch brake $54.95 at harbor freight and you can always get a 20 percent off coupon online..................

    Has paid for itself many times over.

    Iíve made one out of wood....... used it once. Stock up on the beer cause itís time consuming to actually use especially if your not finding gold!

    thats why I am wanting to build a miller table I am finding some gold with a pan but everything I am finding is really small so small that the GM 1000 is not seeing it so I figured I would take the next logical step and start classifying dirt's down to different sizes and run them on a miller table as for time I have nothing but time I may as well do something with the free time I have i have been classifying dirt down to 3/8 and then dropping down in size I have 10-5 gallon buckets classified down to 30 mesh already and intend on classifying those down even further after I get the table built but I want to start out with the material that I have classified to 30 mesh first and see how that works on the miller table before classifying further.

    Using a teaspoon at a time, I found it very difficult to see the flour gold.i use 250 reading glasses to help me see. I classified it down very fine as-well.

    hey oldkoot, I made small table out of wood, painted it with many coats of spray paint (chalk board paint} then bought small bag of concentrate from gold hog, it's easy to set up, then with dirt with gold in it, you experiment with tilt and water flow and watch how fine gold moves, I always had trouble with super fine material, but this made it easy and fun and not wondering if your material actually has gold. now I can test some local material and feel confident with what I'm doing

    Azviper's plans work very well.

    I built two, one for my friend who had the break. Buying one from Harbor Freight, as Goodyguy suggested, is a great idea.

    picked up the break from harbor freight,I am using one of the sides from an old gas stove I had sitting around bent it up with the break went pretty nice have the spray bar installed and picked up a cutting board at Walmart for the water box end first attempt at cutting it did not go so good so have to start over on that part luckily I purchased a big enough cutting board just in case of screw ups,picked up all the fittings for stand and water box taking my time on the build so I do not have to build twice LOL been there and done that making it 12 inches wide and 30 inches long using a 500 gallon per hour bilge pump I had sitting around not being used confiscated it from a hillbilly swamp cooler I had made but no longer use.

    if anyone wants to know how to build a 12 volt hillbilly swamp cooler let me know and I will give you step by step instructions they work great when summer hits I built two of them for my cabin and found out I only needed one it drops the temps by about 25to 30 degrees
