  1. Well i guess if you count the water hitting the sides of the container after be spayed in from the holes in the center it post tubing it would be a form of vibration.
  2. Yea, Mercury is some dangerous stuff if you don't know how to handle it properly. Most of the beach gold is minus 100 and smaller, so it is about as fine as you can get. Thanks for the input.
  3. Sounds like an idea. Now if we could just find a fella with a little bit of ingenuity.
  4. I am talking about running beach sands through it. The material is already smaller than 8 mesh so no classifying needed. And i already have the pump and hose so that is not a problem. And i plan to build my own fluid bed with materials i mostly have so minimal cost. I just wonder how one would work for the purpose specified.
  5. Has anyone ever tried a fluid bed set up for running beach sands for beach gold? Something like the Quicksand Concentrator or similar? Been thinking about it and don't see why it wouldn't work, and you can run quite a bit of material through them.
  6. Thank you for the feedback. I appreciate your input. And if you are ever are in Oregon feel free to look me up.
  7. Thank ya kindly for the reply. I guess the only way to find out for sure is to get one and try it out.
  8. Still wondering if it would be any good for the beach gold and black sands?
  9. Thanks for the reply. I wonder how they would work on beach gold? I am thinking the 3 stack is probably all a person really needs.
  10. I am thinking about a Gold Cube for use on beach sands. Would appreciate input from those that have or have had one and used it for that purpose. Will it do any better than my re-circulating drop riffle sluice? Are they pretty good at capturing the beach gold? Do you think they are worth the nearly $400 price? Any feedback appreciated. Thanks
  11. Thanks Malo. Yea, i build all i can, like this and the gas crack vac, and hand suction dredge. It is fun and saves me Lots of money. And They Work.
  12. Thanks Rick. They do a really good job of catching that really Fine gold.
  13. Put this together the other day. Use a Rubbermaid laminated shelf for the base and 1"x4"'s for the rest. Installed an e-bay chalkboard on base and left enough room above it for the water to smooth out after leaving the header box. I am using a 400 gph bilge pump to run it. I have a 1/2" ball valve installed in line on the pump water line. The thing works fantastic for recovering even micro gold. I put a hole in the top edge of the chalkboard and base and have a gold vile i screw in to it to brush the finished product in to so i wind up with nice clean gold in the vile.
  14. Finished the new and improved 5 gal version today and this one has Great suction. Thanks guys for all the helpful tips.
  15. Yea, i am working on the 5 gal model today. Decided the 2 gal bucket was too small. Thanks
  16. Well fellas, you were right on. I opened up the hole to 2" and it now has good suction. Thanks
  17. Thank you guys very much for the advice. I will try it tomorrow.
  18. You guys think the larger 2" hose and 5 gal bucket would give me More vacuum? Mine pics up material but is not all that impressive on vacuum. It will suck up dirt but not from much of a distance. Any help appreciated.
  19. Ahh, the old Shop Vac trick. lol I was going to do that but decided on the bucket. As long as they work not a bit of difference. Thanks.
  20. Thanks guys. I have some small 20 mesh screen to put over the intake and i have an elbow pointing down inside the bucket. I also have an assortment of crevice tools already. But i will see about getting the carb kits. Good tip. Tom. What diameter is your pick up hose? Mine is just about 1".
  21. Decided i wanted a gas vac for vacuuming cracks and crevices but didn't want to spend $400+ to buy one. So checked Craigs List and found an Echo leaf blower about 65 miles north of us. So after a road trip north to get the blower i came home and put this together. It is built on a 2 gal. bucket since i wanted a smaller more compact one. I had the hose and fittings already so total investment was: Blower $50, gas for trip $15, lunch at Burger King $7 so a total of $72. And best of all when i started it after finishing it actually sucks material up.
  22. Mike, that would be great if i were just a Wee bit closer. Unfortunately, Roseburg, Oregon is a little far away. And that is a good piece of advice John. Thanks
  23. Thanks for the input everyone. I had a GBII but it was really hard to keep balanced with ground minerals we have. And All the Hot Rocks we have around here gave me fits. The TDI ignores most of that.
  24. Location,location, location!!! That is what it all comes down to in the end.
