This is a goldfarb from the late 1980's, out of production since 1992 and originally developed by Keene
Anyone ever seen one?

Nobody used them because they didn't work. I've seen them, use one that belonged to a friend once and we laughed at it. Pure garbage, sell it for scrap :evil6:

Its not mine. Someone posted it on Facebook and believe it to possess amazing gold catching capabilities...like processing 800 pounds of Black Sand per hour while catching 5 micron gold

Then the question is, why are they selling it?

Try running a quart of fish oil through it before using.

Sure do still have mine but some bad engineering-as usual- so took MUCH modifications to make it work even half arsed. Moved it getting to xmas decorations and always chuckle a bit as mighty spendie as $5 at a miners fleamarket back ,waaaaaaay back in the day. Green machine in Lebec ripoff design that never really worked, hence a half dozen feed ins to try and achive good enough rotation without loss. Does yours have the metal cone? Normally used these type things for targets but wheels all over for a buck or so so still using up my last 2 first. I made a big one using a 35 gallon barrel but just another Ostenburg Column style occurance-cool find -John

To small for real miners but Looks like a gadget recreational prospectors could make and improve.

Congrats Chls...that's one of the finest examples of a classic passive/aggressive
comment that I've seen this year.. :icon_thumleft:

I've seen "real miners" that never dug anything bigger than a booger.
