Gold Prospecting Forum Guidelines

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here. This forum is not moderated as heavily as the other sections so please do not enter or open a topic if you think you will be offended. If you are at least respond like an adult or we will remove your post as soon as brought to our attention.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political or Religious posts belong in "Off Topic" but surly you can find other forums that host those discussions if it is your thing, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never permanently banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it clean and play nice.

    • A rock with hot pink survey paint sprayed on it.
    • I used super glue to hold it together, then I ended up using Gorilla Glue (which is what I had on hand)  I  built up a complete cast around the outside from the holes on the coil ears to an inch down the shaft and was able to spread it on the inside as well.  I ground down the inside enough to slide the coil connector through.  It seems to be rock hard solid.  I installed the new lower shaft I bought but not before building up a cast around the outside like I did on my broken shaft for added strength.  I think it will be fine for a spare.  Appreciate all the helpful ideas that I can fall back on if my attempt doesn't hold.

    • Well Morlock you know ones that start fires.  
    • Reinforcing with fiberglass drywall tape works wonders   , and adding microspheres is great at thickening runny epoxies that need a long set time.
    • There are epoxies that adhere to plastic quite well- just look for it on the label. Always, but always, I cross hatch the area to be glued with a razor knife, then coarse sandpaper, and then acetone or non lubricant ether(starting fluid). I have even used brake cleaner in a pinch.
