My prospecting club had a raffle on a drywasher and I won!
Had to try it out ASAP. Works pretty good, got a few specks :icon_thumright:

Had to shorten the legs 6" so it would fit in my Jeep.

I bet it did not take long to get used to the thump, thumps vs. the blower noise....

Good luck.

You are so right!
I converted my old blower drywasher over to a puffer because of the noise and with this new one I now have 4 puffers :tongue3:

4 Drywashers...Seems like I remember you greatly downsized when you finally got sense and moved west. Now it sounds like you are junking up Kingman. LOL

Good luck.

Good luck.

I just cant help myself, now it seems I may have to rent an even larger mini warehouse.
As far as junking up Kingman goes, parts of it is already the most junked up town I've ever lived in, so I fit right in. :tongue3:

Actually there is an ongoing effort to clean up the town so it's getting better all the time.
Lots of new upscale sub divisions going in and the town is growing really fast with all the folks fleeing here from California.

Here is a simple drive that I came up with for my DIY puffer using a windshield wiper motor.
No pulleys No belts. Still my favorite drywasher. :icon_thumright:

Congratulations! They did a nice job building it.

He does a great job! Several members have won them over the years. He builds and then donates 1 or 2 a year to the club for raffles.
As far as I know he does not build them for sale.
