Classifying used to be a pain
« on: February 24, 2010, 09:07:57 AM »
The screens are 12X16 inches. I used a 1 inch screen for the top, and a 4 mesh for the second. The unit weighs about 30 lbs, but it will not fail under heavy use. I will put stainless steel woven screens in later. Powder coating is in the works for it.

NO MORE SORE BACK!!!

I used 1X2X.063 wall steel tubing.

Do you think I should put it in our product line?  You could use it to hold up your rig while you change tires too.... ;D

There seems to be a lot of very handy folks on here, and I figure many will build their own. Ours are built to take it for sure.

I think it you could put it in a product line, not everyone had welding experience or the tools to build such a beast. I noticed that its square. Its too bad its not form fitting to a bucket, ie round that way no loss of material?

Just my thoughts.
What does this thing weight?

Ok I think this is a wonderful Idea I've made something similar once just not quite so tough {-applause-} good workmanship I can see that I also see you have a spraybar of sorts on top my question is why don't you modify it so you can put a sluice under it and skip the step of emptying the buckets all the time. Although I can see some merrit it in certain applications. This is just my 2 cents worth but I would make one smaller and design it for screening your concentrates after running through sluice going from say 10 mesh down depending on the size of gold in your area. my one claim contains nothing but flour gold and this would work very well as it has lots of black sands with it therefore screening down my cons I'm able to be more efficient with a blue bowl or con. sluice. Dont get me wrong I'm not putting your device down I've made myself the same sort of device just found out I was able to skip a step and make it easier and more productive.

I must say that I am sad to have been away so long, and missed this post. We use this classifier to parse out the rocks and pebbles for the centrifuge. It takes 1/4-
