Rocker box pics

Recommended Posts

I thought these were pretty cool pic. You don't see rockers much these days but they were used quite a bit back in the day...

I really wish I was as interested in History when I was in school as I am now.  Outstanding pics.

Those are some great old photos.  The first pic in the thread looks as if the guy has dug up the village sidewalk to find gold.  I bet the neighbors loved him.

I've been finding and collecting some vintage punch plates from old rockers from on my claim. Pretty cool.

I have a claim with a small creek on it and I am going to use it as a "Historical Mining Classroom".

I will be teaching anyone who has an interest in mining, the old timer's ways.

I need to build a Rocker exactly like one of these in these photos.
