Nice dredge yes, but I don't think it is a "triple sluice"...  ;)

Sorry, I'm really not trying to be picky, but to clarify according to Keene..."The latest technological design is the new 3 stage sluice box. The new box works similar to the double or triple sluice, classifying the fine material..." Can be found at http://www.keeneengineering.com/pamphlets/howdredge.html (http://www.keeneengineering.com/pamphlets/howdredge.html)

I would much rather use your recovery box over the older triple sluice box for many reasons.  No 1 is that the older triple box used the "crash box" header design (your flare box is the better/newer design).  No 2 is it was physically larger and restricted mobility.  No 3, there were just too many concentrates and in my opinion it was overkill to the point of causing many miners to not fully clean up when they should.  No 4, more to replace, ie., carpets, riffles etc.  BUT, it did catch the gold!

Nice box and I know someone will be very happy with it!
