    Went out today to shoot a video, first time using my camera and I didn't know that each time I let off the button it would start a separate video. I thought it would just pick up where I left off so I ended up shooting 7 videos instead of just one.

    So rather than post all of them I will just post three so you get the Idea. The first is just showing it running with no material added.
    The second one shows me feeding it a shovelful ( hard to do while holding a camera in one hand)
    The third shows material being processed in the drum.







    The drum runs a little fast so I had to back off the angle a little bit but it did a good job of washing the rocks clean so I'm happy.
    Haven't done a clean up for today's run but if it is anything like the last time it will just be typical Hoosier fines, specks, and fly poop.

    Well I have all that is needed to build your bigger trommel BUT I need tobe rebuilt first! BUt there again this trommel setup for the GC will be my Winter project!!! Im leaveing in the morning to get another 4 inch Keene dredge and a 2 inch Keene dredge and a Keene highbanker and some odds and ends. NOW for the good part...............My left knee popped the other day and I think its time to get it replaced or do some digging around to see whats wrong with it! Either way...another year of NO dredgeing for me! BUT Ill Have plenty to do during the Winter months. My 5 inch subbie is almost built and itll have to wait also unless I could get a couple of guys that want to take it out for a try!

    In the meantime here is a photo of the spring tensioner modification......
    The spring is a leftover from our dry cleaning business, used to hold a steam press cover in place.

    very nice work, been thinking of building one for my cube,of course, then i get thinking maybe i can feed it with a 2 or 2 1/2" dredge nozzle and eliminate all that hard work of shovelling

    I bet it didn't take long to sell. I was going to copy and build yours but, I did not have time this last winter and now it's gold finding time all of a sudden.
    Getting warm down your way I'm sure. Get those nuggets!
