  1. Nice work.... I don't know where you are located but you might be interested in this..... http://www.geologyin.com/2017/08/california-rainbow-obsidian-is-natural.html
  2. Nice machine Jim. You must have a machine shop to do it for $200? I have a chipmunk also. Please design me a small roller crusher to follow it (and yours) Grin
  3. I almost hit this one with the coil. It never moved or rattled. Not that it mattered, I was wearing headphones.
  4. Thanks... looks like I'm the "old" guy today.
  5. If it is working correctly, I think everything will still be seen by all but you. ??
  6. Only use quicksilver(mercury) if you are planning on melting it down. Never looks like "gold" after it has mercury on it. Since you seem new to gold, I wouldn't recommend using mercury...... too dangerous if you don't know what you are doing.
  7. I assume you said that because you know the mineralization of the area he hunts in? Where I hunt, I've kept it at max since the early 1990's with 4 different GB 2s. No problems. Theace115, nice little pieces there. On bedrock?
  8. Try asking here.... https://www.detectorprospector.com/forums/forum/29-metal-detector-advice-comparisons/ Steve lives in Reno. He might know a place.
  9. You don't have to host.... just pull from your files.
  10. Not sure what I should be seeing? Where are the engravings?
  11. I carry a jar of Folgers freeze dried in an empty coffee pot. Heat some water, pour a cup and add a teaspoon of coffee. There you go. Also carry a few packs of chocolate mix in the pot incase someone wants that.
  12. As I recalculate from the new info provided, it looks like it could run from $5 per yard to $100 per yard....
  13. Sorry Bedrock, in the same sentence you said ". I hope I can get another half ounce before I collapse". I put that together with "a couple hundred buckets". I thought they went together.... my mistake. You are right on the money at $20 a yard......
  14. you're right Swampstomper..... I figure 400 buckets at $30/yd. (I feel a tick on my neck)
  15. I think this should be moved to the meteorite category. You might get more useful responses....
  16. LowPoint, your handle says it all. doesn't it.... grin? Way to look for those catches. Micro, the North fork is upstream of the Forks of Salmon.
  17. Sure a small scoop in that last pic.
  18. I build all my own too, grim1 But, it took me a few years of mining and a few "improved" boxes before I got one that worked good for my material. Probably ran a bit of gold out the box before I learned. 60+ years of experience does help when I build something now....
  19. Isn't 11 degrees a little over 2" per foot? I would like to see a picture of your setup. Never saw a 30 foot long operation before. For a "first timer" building a sluice box, I would suggest buying one already made for simplicity. Not going to break the bank. If you want to make your own, go ahead. Check some of the recirculating setups that are sold. They will tell you what pump they come with.
  20. I have to load non-lead in CA next year for the 243 and probably some 270s. Haven't looked up any info yet but apparently the non-lead will be longer and have to watch the space between bullet and powder..... nice fish btw
  21. this may sound strange... or maybe not. The 243s, about 7 boxes(140 rounds) have been all reloaded with a Lee hand loader kit.(you remember those? Got it in the 60's) No resizing or trimming other than tapping case. Haven't lost a case yet but, like I said, I keep checking.
  22. Thanks for the info Bob. When I first noticed those odd cases, my first thought was that they would be 30-06 cases too. But, they were 270 cases.?? Don't have them anymore to look further. I definitely will sort the rest of the cases by manufacture after they are cleaned. I will run a light load thru them and check them. I have been reloading and shooting the same cases through my 243 for years. Probably reloaded them close to 10 times. All through the same gun and same load.. But, I keep checking them.
