« on: March 05, 2013, 10:51:39 AM »
  Title says it all, bought 2 components, glass flat bottom bowl and a large funnel from Crappy Tire, had #12 concentrator already and 5 gal pail all total cost of $10.
 still have to cut the whole in the side of the bucket and then will post pics of it.All in  all about 10-15 minutes of work.

 Well i'm hopefully getting out to my claim this weekend to test this sucker out.I added a silicone ring in the bottom to hold the bowl in place while i shake the classifier.I figured it was gonna move around and go off centre.
I will also be testing out a bench i have,while my son in law and his friend work the bucket.The guy i bought it from only dug down on it a little bit and said it was all sand.So me being as curious as i am am going to
dig a 4x4 hole and see how far till i reach gravel.If anyone has any ideas other than an auger,feel free to let me in on some secrets.

not being a smart --- but probably not supposed to use them near the river kinda like a vertical sluice box i wonder if you have to be 10 meters away and pack your water <-laugh->  ;D

Pretty neat set up...but... I too think the muddy discharge back into the river/creek might get DFO's panties in a twist.  <~ShOcK~>
I suppose a small mini pump might solve the 10 metre rule  <-good_>
