  1. 1915 gets it down the road nicely. Looking forward to seeing further post.
  2. Dave, where did you route the intake and exhaust for the heater? Thanks. Rick
  3. Dunno how I missed these post. Nice, very nice. I just installed one of the diesel heaters in our 1956 Terry 12 footer. Blast out the heat. Great placement of yours under the hood. Is that the 2kw or the bigger 5 to 8kw? I many borrow your placement for mine baja. Wife and I enjoy the backroads in the area and hope to have it out on the playa soon. (Middle Fork of the American River, Georgetown side.) Almost got into my first sand trap when we got going again in that same direction. I paid a bit more than you for this one, $1600 with a 1500 in it. Running fresh 1915, a
  4. I wouldn't power wash the rocks. Surface gold would be blasted off. Also, specimen gold is worth bigger bucks when cleaned up so don't just crush rocks before checking them out.
  5. Do some loaming below the coop area.
  6. Good man. $250 was way too low. 586 gm specimen found with GB 2.
  7. Thanks Morlock. Using wax to protect sections of the quartz I want to keep native. Learning as I go. Works good to freeze the specimen when done to remove the wax easier. The middle specimen had the whole back of the rock coated as the one side had the contact zone of au. Chalcedony was found around the Sawtooth area in NV. If I don't find a buyer I'll do what I've done in the past and make something for the wife.
  8. A couple of weeks soaking in Acid Etch Cream.
  9. Bob, I agree. My experience is that the market is very small compared to placer nugget collectors. That is why I am attempting to dig into a better marketplace for these pieces. I've sold many larger pieces like you prior to any processing.
  10. Yep, I check the specimen for continuity first.
  11. I use Acid Etch for glass which has a higher content of HF. Still takes a week to 10 days to see some results.
  12. Morlock, SO won't allow me to have HF, old source of this service no longer does the process. We have been to several large gold / gem shows. Very limited amount of people purchase specimen gold over placer nuggets. Most don't know what they are looking at. Will check with local supplier to see if I can pick up a jug without the wife knowing about it.
  13. Any suggesting for best place to offer specimen gold for sale? Doesn't seem to generate much interest on this site. I have some specimens headed for the dolly pot if I don't sell them as specimens. Hate to crush up rare crystalline gold specimens if there is a market for them.
