There are several MacKirk drop riffle sluices available on Youtube - just do a search
and you will find videos on the Field and Stream, the clean-up sluice and the Mini Long Tom.

California Sluice Box has an inexpensive drop riffle sluice with a video to go with it.
Also check Greywolf's videos for his drop riffle sluice with close-ups in action.
Maybe the drop riffle is the way to go due to heavies capture and constant black sands clean-out?

I believe the drop riffle sluices need to be vacuum formed from ABS or some plastics
since hand forming or machining would be too expensive even if possible.

Example of the MacKirk Mini Long Tom:

Thanks Placerpal. I have to wonder how well these work. I like the easy clean up of these units. No matting to worry about. I have yet to talk to anyone that owns one of these.

Dwayne, PlacerPal, have made some protos out of wood, used a bandsaw and some little chisels, worked good in the demo sluice box, have built a couple out of 20 guage steel, and they work excellent but are kinda heavy for packing around, when I get the equipment together will be able to make them out of abs plastic, have been looking into suppies of abs and looking for a big 48-60 inch pizza oven to do the baking of the plastic and molds, someday, maybe this fall or winter, be faster and a lot cheaper to make and ship, then would have a made in Cariboo Gold Rush Country Brand...

I have a Le Trap drop riffle that I'm in love with, but I've read Angus MacKirk has a more durable product. There are lots of videos for Le Traps...

Here's a question: are all drop riffles that same?

The shape of the Letrap and the Augus are the same, though the actual size is a little different, about a 4 flat x 1 drop with a 90 degree involved, and rounded leading edge and rounded bottom corner, the California is a straight 1 x 1 drop and flat with rounded edge and corners, trying a couple of different things, seem to work, looking at more testing (home shop and Field) to be able to see if my assumptions are close or correct.............Guest
