    Le Trap Redesign?

    I have been looking around online for Le Trap Sluice prices and almost everybody has "Out of Stock" or "Unavailable". One site even says the Le Trap is being redesigned.

    Anybody know if a Le Trap redesign is coming?

    Thanks,
    Dillon

    Le Trap is now owned by Jobe.

    Jobe has moved to the Midwest from las Vegas.

    besides that they really suck as a supplier.

    they purchased rights to several widgets.

    desert fox and le trap being two of them.

    Jobe is the main supplier for most online prospecting stores. that is why you will notice many items out of stock.

    I don't think Jobe will be around much longer.

    Angus Mackirk is pretty much done for as well.

    I wouldn't bank on the redesign rumor/excuse

    Go for gold hog or if you want a cheap plastic sluice try this one https://www.amazon.com/SE-GP-SB32-Pr...8-2&ref=sr_1_2

    I have one it catches fine gold really well. Not the easiest to clean out but it's not that bad.

    Le traps will totally clean out over time and don't hold gold like an Angus. Not to mention they are flimsy and cheaply made. Get an Angus, spend less get more.

    they are tough boxes.

    unfortunately they are not being made anymore.

    So, get one while you can.

    Notice company website gone....low stock levels or out of stock for online stores.

    Cabelas probably has the most stock left


    Angus is no longer

    Metal Detecting
    That's a shame about AM sluices? I've all but quit the digging/sluicing and switched to detecting so was gonna sell most my sluicing stuff EXCEPT my Angus. Will DEFINATELY keep the AM now after reading this as it was my favorite box!!!!!

    They guy there at angus said he makes them when you order so he doesn't have any sitting around. He said he keeps up just fine with orders. They are also black instead of gray now. It was Broken Back Mining Supplies last time I ordered. He makes the Angus stuff.

    Yea broken back is out of Canada

    You will see that he has low stock.

    But, yes he is "making AM sluices" The brand is listed as part of the company. So , yes I was wrong..BUT.

    They acquired them a few years ago. Other than a few of the stream sluice models. It's hard to find a distributor carrying their products.

    I put a sluice in the cart to calculate shipping...as suspected they won't even ship to my address.

    None of their listed Ca. distributors have stock.

    However Cabelas does have the expedition and scout model ( I think its actually the recon)

    So, essentially there is no more Angus Mackirk. unless your Canadian... Or buy from Cabelas.

    It was much better When angus was their own company and storefront.

    Le Trap Redesign?

    I talked with a friend who used to carry them in her prospecting shop here in CO. She said the problem is the new tariffs. It adds so much to cost to get them from Canada that she has zero profit left so she stopped carrying them.

    The New tariffs suck.

    Funny thing Kevin.

    There are no products in the categories of raw plastics or products using plastic on the tariff list.

    There is no blanket tariff on Canadian products.

    What tariff is driving up the cost of plastic sluice boxes?

    On a side note mining gear made of aluminum and steel.

    Could and should be, produced with American aluminum and steel.

    Turned into American made products.

    tariffs do not suck.
