looking for trommel plans
« on: November 28, 2008, 06:01:53 PM »
Hey all,
First post...
I found this site in a seemingly futile search for a large "recreational" trommel. 
I was recently regulated out of business-imagine that... in a country that has gone crazy with deregulation- and am considering a go at making a living at scrounging gold.  Gotta come up with a way to move lotsa material.
Fingers Crossed,
GotFever

The best recreational one I can think of is The Honcoop Highbanker Company
YouTube - *New* Honcoop HB17 Trommel Highbanker
I hope that helps <-good_>

Bill and Linda's prospecting page has some great pictures and even a few free plans. 
prospecting
more specifically:  trommel

One really cool thing about the honcoop highbanker that VS posted is that you dont need an engine to turn the trommel.  It uses water pressure from you pump to power a turgo turbine that spins the trommel barrel.  The only complaint I have with it is the design of the grizzly.  It has a grizzly screen that classifies to one inch in the headerbox with no spraybars to wash the gravel.  so you have to use a garden hose attachment to rinse the gravel through which makes it no faster than the average highbanker.  The only reason i would look at the honcoop trommel over their highbankers is if you were workin an area with some real serious clay problems.

This is a fairly good set of plans for a Bill Fletcher trommel build. He gives you the measurements, drawings and some instruction.
