Somebody said that it couldn't be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he wouldn't be one
Who'd say so until he had tried.

Looking good minkos61 (stupid questions following): Are the front legs adjustable to allow lowering of the front of the unit? To allow rocks to exit the trommel?

Where did you find that large sprocket?

Nice build!!  ;D ;D

Thanks RockForBrains no such thing as a stuipid question! The front legs are adjustable to allow rocks to come out the barrel and also to set the sluice angle for proper water flow through the sluice. The sprocket came from Raeside Equipment but you can get them from Princess Auto and other places like that .When this sproket gives up I will change it from  #35 to #40 the #35 is a little light.

Thanks Ernie
