Help Me Lay Out The Matting For This High Banker My Firends!
« on: April 04, 2018, 03:26:38 PM »
So I got my hands on some of this blue High-Low rubber matting from Ebay and decided I wanted to EXTEND my high bankers sluice to make it fit.... I would like to know your opinions on how I should place all the matting I have plus I want to add a punch plate to the upper section .....

This is what the new blue matting looks like:

This is the little high banker as it sits right now without the extension on it....

The punch plate I want to add under the grizley bars,.... Also should I leave just bare aluminum under the punch plate or should I use some black V RIB under the punch plate?

Now Here is the proposed layout in the box....

As you can see I have it layed out with the punch plate at the top with deep V matt under the punch plate and sticking out of the punch plate a bit... Then I have it to the Blue High Low Rubber Riffles, then to Miners Moss Covered with expended metal then a small section of steel riffles near the bottom.

What do you think? should the blue matting be where it is or should I move change places with the miners moss/expanded metal/metal riffle so the blue rubber is at the bottom of the run?

Looking forward to hearing your input. The total length of the sluice should be around 60" when done.

Feeding it with a 2" pump reduced to 1.5" and a valve to control / choke off water flow if needed.

Thanks friends!

Why do you say that?  I think this little sluice is just too small of a run to catch everything hense why I want to make it longer. 

Plus I don't trust that miners moss / expanded metal in the top of the box like it is.

 Good Looking Set Up, If You Have any UR, Put a Couple of Lengths Under Your Punch Plate, or at least try it?

I have that deep v rubber Matt I can put under the punch plate.  It's good at catching fines.

Here is what I played around with tonight....

Added a punch plate:

This is just a mock up ... under the punch plate is deep V black matting that runs all the way down under the miners moss.

Im not sure if I should put the miners moss / expanded metal / metal riffles in the top of the box like that and the blue high low matting in the bottom as seen the the pics below or reverse those two and have the blue matting at the top and the other at the bottom. Opinions?

Also yes I have not cut the blue matting to size yet.  :P
