  1. Hi Just read your post I'm also a potter in ca when not out prospecting. Also just started looking around at my local environment as well. Cool picture There is a good book I recently purchased called Glazes from Natural sources by Brian Sutherland very good info on this type of subject another good book i use the most is by michael cardew called pioneer pottery also very good section on geology for potters. Phillip
  2. Hi jim thanks for the link the page look pretty interesting. I also ordered a copy of successful drywashing book by jim straight , looking forward to read it. Thanks for the advice as well if it gets too technicle i may just see if frank is able too build one. thanks again Phillip
  3. Hi just wanted to say i agree on the goldmaster v/sat i love mine i managed to snag one up on ebay last year for around two hundred and twenty i believe definately made a major difference, compared to the first detector i bought was a bounty hunter lone star which is ok but the v sat is way more pro Phillip
  4. Hi ok thanks for the info on the sluice box material. just wondering in the airbox of your drywashers what kind of cloth material did you use i might just go with something like that also making folding legs on it is good idea i was watching that video again he must have a heard time carrying that thing around phillip
  5. Hi Dang frank thats a beast of a setup. Awesome work very inspiring Love to maybe see a youtube video of it in action Phillip
  6. Hi frank thanks for the info, definately plan to order a couple of those books you mentioned. I was thinking when i build my lower rifle tray could i use sluice box cloth ? also do you think plywood would be the best to use for the construction ? Phillip
  7. Hi all I been toying with the idea of finally building my own drywasher. I bought a small sampler style last year off of frank c, frank if you read that mini drywasher is really fun to use I like to try and make a larger one. the style I fell in love with was one i saw on you tube, here the link if that don't work just type marios dry washer in the search. I love handle based machines since they are quiet and don't have to haul a lot of gear into the claim area. anyway if anyone especially frank has any ideas on how to start would love to hear from you Phillip
  8. Hi all I'm still condsider my self a new meteorite hunter, i'm not sure if this has been asked before but once you find a meteorite or meteorites and get them home what do you normaly do first. get them sent off to be classified ? also how do you organize your collections ? Phillip
  9. Hi thanks, i been to a few of them already like el mirage and currently started hunting around koehn dry lake. so far still in learning stage but having fun with it. I belong to prospectors club of so cal so when i go out to claims from time to time i try to squeeze in some meteorite hunting.
  10. Hi wow you guys are awesome can't believe that 9.9 grammer. I went out to koehn dry lake last weekend but no luck out there yet plan to hit it again this weekend. was this out by mojave ? Great photos
  11. Hi all its been awhile since posting. I just started testing my first meteorite cane which right now is nothing more then a walking which i outfitted with a magnet. i'm currently reading the field guide to meteors and meteorites love the book. before getting into meteorites i been going to gem hill in rosamond ca which is near the tropico gold mine, one of my favorite rockhounding sights anyway i'm thinking of taking my cane out tomarrow there to play around and test it. If anyone is here local or has been there just wondering if you ever found any meteorites there. phillip
  12. Hi chris love to get a copy of your book are you going to be at gpaa gold show in lancaster this week ? if not then i will just order a copy ? phillip
  13. Hi jim thanks for the reply also i was looking to maybe join the gpaa this year i already belong to the southern ca prospectors club but have been looking to join gpaa or ldma anyway i actually got the manual to the v/sat als the video instructions which were very interesting anyway would love to hear any thoughts you may have on it ? phillip
  14. Hi all just had to say that i finally got my whites goldmaster v/sat a few days ago. all i can say is wow definatley a major upgrade compared to my bounty hunter lone star. Right just learning how to do the ground balancing. Amazing how much more you get inspired to go out when you get the right gear even though i bought a used goldmaster i plan to still keep my bouny hunter for quick park outings but going out to my club claims definately taking the goldmaster any one else outthere still using this detector ? Phillip
  15. hi thanks for the reply jim glad to see other pcsc members on the forums usually the two main claims that i go out to regulary are red chispa and the clark claim also just a quick update i just got lucky on ebay and picked up a whites goldmaster v/sat for 224 plus shipping so i'm really excited I'm also going to be joing lost dutchman association this year phillip
