10" high banker build
« on: October 29, 2013, 09:31:45 AM »
Hey guys
Parts are ordered and I thought i would try to have a build threat for my highbanker.

Plan is to build a 10" x 48" sluice using gold hog matting. (UR, razerback, and scrubber).  Aluminum will be .080 thick, and using jobe legs.   Keep an eye on this thread if you are interested in the build.  Also, any advice is appreciated.  :)

Just a quick sketch on sketchup for my highbanker plans, I'm sure this wont be exactly the same as my final design but it will be close. Any suggestions?

I love it...  the modeling of various parts and pieces... very cool!

Side bibs... so your not accidentally shoveling into the sluice area...
Water flap.. to settle things down some
A slick area before each capture area
Wedges big end to big end, along the sides, to create pressure zones...

you are in clay area?

I suggest adding a panel to top forward area of the box just large enough to keep water from splashing out when that pressurised water shoots in.

It is a very good build, but that one came from tickletime. My own is larger, a bit different in construction, but of similar function. [ Invalid Attachment ]

 Sorry about that. Both units are good builds. Tickletimes has a bit more detailing done on his.

Mine is simpler and a bit cruder, but made to handle the job of two guys throwing the gravel in as fast as they want to work, with a longer sluice too.  It won't have to move around much until the season is done. Some of the details of how the gravel reaches the sluice are not apparent in the photo, but everything goes where it should, and it is sturdy.
