Sluice and tarp
« on: October 28, 2011, 09:23:16 PM »
Facelift on the local Boston Pizza this summer I picked up some of the old take off items.

Where the walls meet the roof there is a flashing approx 8" wide with 2" to 3" sides made of painted thin sheet steel. Got me 3 x 10ft sections andc a couple short ones.  Will work for a long tom with some simple riffles and carpet or as a trough to carry material to a pit.

Also grabbed some of the heavy coated tarp material they use on the awnings.  Could be used as a tarp (install more grommets on other side) or line a dam face or redirect slurry or whatever works.

There was a whole dumpdter that went to the dump, I just grabbed off the top and if I had jumpedin earlier I could have had the awning material full size but to make it easier they just cut it off the frames.

Hope your all gettin'gold this year. Greg

Great idea sounds like would make a nice long tom sluice bump all sections in a row down. Try different things on each section. One one have riffles, then minors moss, them matting or how ever you do it cheers Ray
