Great job on that SnowSpider comin along great.I'm powering mine with a wiper motor to but chain drive next one might be belt drive I like the idea of the belt slipping if a rock jam's up.

Yes  I thought about rock jams too but on the more enjoyment side  Its much quieter with the V belt Im guessing and  much easyer to find Pullys of diff size than sprockets and matching chain... Im prolly going to use my 5.5  Gas  Water pump to power it now that Ive got the durn thing working right LOL  may give it a test run as soon as the ice breaks up in Devon or Genissee  Devon is good but crowded and Gennissee   under the bridge is showing some really good colour and much quieter  Ahhh but the dream spot is still unaccessable due to a lack of a boat  LOL  a big gravel Island in the middle of the river  just  up here by Thorsby I can hear the gold calling me and the trommel to come and play LOL

The pic's if they come thru?? are of the spiffy 12V trommel I made this winter.
It's frame is made from 3/4 inch copper pipe cause I can't weld worth a darn but boy can I solder.
