  4. Here's a question

    The worls standard is grams. We couldn't get the metric system right but grams always seemed right as a more finite unit of measurement and 12 oz to a pound also is yet another issue. I sold a customer , back in the 80s, a pound of gold for $X and he came back ranting and raving i ripped him off as only 12 ozs. He thought he was getting me bad, but he got a honest deal at 12 oz price, which he didn't like. Scale read a pound so legit.John
  5. More then PICKERS I would say !

    Sounds like a dream come true to me. Kudos-Thanks much for the post-John
  6. Blower for Drywasher

    On any model that's not adjustable or uses a trigger,a simple velcro strip will hold it in place to whatever speed you need to maintain, except in a hi/lo only but sometimes hi works just fine. Don't know your specific model so cfm is the variable to know for a proper matchup.. John

  10. Gold King drywasher

    Go to the Jobe site and look at drywasher parts. See if yours has the adjustable offset like theirs(all that work correctly utilize this style as now industry standard)as just might be a bad adjustment. Early models and el cheapo non adjustable and just spaz out. John

  14. Massive beach cleaning machines work Venice /SM a good part of the year. Dry in the evening and closer to the shore break in the am will produce a bit better as once they go through nothing. John

    FANTASTIC find and I'd leave it as hydrofluoric is one nasty dangerous sob to deal with except under lab conditions. John

  23. Question ,

    In a few very productive areas I've returned with a steel toothed rake and removed a few inches of gravel/rock and found a few more nuggets but never mechanized. I carry a 3 tooth hand claw for cracks/crevices for the same purpose. John
  24. Darwin Awards by Hoser John » Tue Jan 17, 2017 8:12 am AND THE 2016 DARWIN AWARD WINNERS ARE…. Hat tip Jack Q. Eighth Place In Detroit, a 41-year-old man got stuck and drowned in two feet of water after squeezing head first through an 18-inch-wide sewer grate to retrieve his car keys. Seventh Place A 49-year-old San Francisco stockbroker, who “totally zoned when he ran”, accidentally jogged off a 100-foot high cliff on his daily run. Sixth Place While at the beach, Daniel Jones, 21, dug an 8 foot hole for protection from the wind and had been sitting in a beach chair at the bottom, when the sides collapsed, burying him beneath 5 feet of sand. People on the beach used their hands and shovels trying to get him out but could not reach him. It took rescue workers using heavy equipment almost an hour to free him. Jones was pronounced dead at a hospital. Fifth Place Santiago Alvarado, 24, was killed as he fell through the ceiling of a bicycle shop he was burglarizing. Death was caused when the long flashlight he had placed in his mouth to keep his hands free rammed into the base of his skull as he hit the floor. Fourth Place Sylvester Briddell, Jr., 26, was killed as he won a bet with friends who said he would not put a revolver loaded with four bullets into his mouth and pull the trigger. Third Place After stepping around a marked police patrol car parked at the front door, a man walked into H&J Leather & Firearms intent on robbing the store. The shop was full of customers and a uniformed officer was standing at the counter. Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a hold-up and fired a few wild shots from a target pistol. The officer and a clerk promptly returned fire, and several customers also drew their guns and fired. The robber was pronounced dead at the scene by Paramedics. Crime scene investigators located 47 expended cartridge cases in the shop. The subsequent autopsy revealed 23 gunshot wounds. Ballistics identified rounds from 7 different weapons. No one else was hurt. HONORABLE MENTION Paul Stiller, 47, and his wife Bonnie were bored just driving around at 2 A.M. so they lit a quarter stick of dynamite to toss out the window to see what would happen. Apparently they failed to notice that the window was closed. RUNNER UP Kerry Bingham had been drinking with several friends when one of them said they knew a person who had bungee-jumped from a local bridge in the middle of traffic. The conversation grew more excited, and at least 10 men trooped along the walkway of the bridge at 4:30 AM. Upon arrival at the midpoint of the bridge, they discovered that no one had brought a bungee rope. Bingham, who had continued drinking, volunteered and pointed out that a coil of lineman’s cable lay nearby. They secured one end around Bingham’s leg and then tied the other to the bridge. His fall lasted 40 feet before the cable tightened and tore his foot off at the ankle. He miraculously survived his fall into the icy water and was rescued by two nearby fishermen. Bingham’s foot was never located. AND THE WINNER IS…. Zookeeper Friedrich Riesfeldt ( Paderbor, Germany ) fed his constipated elephant 22 doses of animal laxative and more than a bushel of berries, figs and prunes before the plugged-up pachyderm finally got relief. Investigators say ill-fated Friedrich, 46, was attempting to give the ailing elephant an olive oil enema when the relieved beast unloaded. The sheer force of the elephant’s unexpected defecation knocked Mr. Riesfeldt to the ground where he struck his head on a rock as the elephant continued to evacuate 200 pounds of dung on top of him. It seems to be just one of those freak accidents that proves… ‘it happens‘(censored) IT ALWAYS SEEMS IMPORTANT TO THANK THESE PEOPLE FOR REMOVING THEMSELVES FROM THE GENE POOL.
