Hi building a trommel at the moment mostly from scrap steel, still a lot of bracing, hoppers, punch plate drum etc to be fitted but slowly working through it between snow showers & limited tools..... :) ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518817818.460303.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518817849.162373.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518817876.875208.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518817909.077581.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518817927.707319.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518817947.721124.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518817966.847882.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518817981.187003.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518818002.024137.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518818062.172674.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518855748.936756.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518855768.374588.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1518855786.743743.jpg

No Reed, l'm waiting for the 20mm punch plate drum to arrive, next episode is the rear feed hopper & grizzly bars. I have a hopper vibrator somewhere so I'll dig it out & test it on the top feed tray to keep it at a shallower angle & give the bigger rocks that will go over the grizzly bars a better wash, only concern is welds & vibration......

It's there, still fixing paperwork etc to run it, hopefully it will work this year, if not, next season for sure..... Plenty time, the gold doesn't migrate or melt ;) ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1530245627.670588.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1530245650.431852.jpg ImageUploadedByTreasureNet.com1530245670.685493.jpg
