Nice! Do you have a link to plans for the conveyor?

Your conveyor belts look very usefull, and I was thinking of making something like it to go between my bucket trommel and drywasher. I am impressed how the parts were made, did you do it? Nice work! I was trying to source parts for this and have a couple questions- 

Where did you get the belt, rollers and motor and what model were they?

By your photos and how flat the belt is in your video, It looks like you only had to use two rollers for it on each of the ends. Is that all the rollers I would need and can I let the upper belt with rocks and dirt be supported by dragging on the bottom of the wood frame between the two rollers, or did you do something else with yours?

Thanks for the help!

I don’t blame you for keeping that under your “belt”, someone might “convey” away all your secrets! you have a nice product there! Want a field tester? :D

Let us know when you do start selling kits, may be interested!

I  Saw 2 guys feeding 2 puffer type dry washers at Ransburg CA.  one time using a 12 foot step ladder fitted with an 12 volt electric motor on  the top roller and the bottom roller static and a  rubber belt  between the rails and a divider at the end splitting the out put between them. They seemed to be experienced at it operation and where in to the gold on a private claim. Just watched for a few minutes as I had temporary access to a nearby claim where the gold was on hardpan only 2 foot deep and only  about an acre of it but it had some good nuggets. One guy who left must have had too small a screen on his machine as I walked by the next day after it started raining and picked up a 3.5 ouncer from the top of his tailing pile. Rake an detect all tailing piles is my practice even my own!,
