Hey GGG,
I'm running 12" of UR followed by 8 sections of Scrubber then 12" of UR.  I'm just using the matting, no expanded steel.  I think the matting is working great and it seems to be picking up all the flour gold.  With my new stand I will be able to adjust my angles and it should help the mats clean better by allowing more velocity. I'm not to sure about the Gorilla Glue it seems to come apart as soon as I do a clean up.  An inspections guy at work suggested I try and use a product called GOOP because it more plyable.  What's your thoughts?  I'm planning to get out to the North Sask River ( I'm tired of trying to spell that word) before the of the month to try ou tmy new stand then the Canada Day long weekend I'll be back trying the Athabasca River again.  I'll video this time and take pics of my results.
Pretty happy so far,
Grizz

If your mats come apart you are using Gorilla glue, not their super glue.
You must use their SUPER glue and it comes in a small bottle only.
Once together, it will not come apart. We have put them under 300lbs of pull pressure and can't get them to separate.
It only takes a VERY fine line of the glue or even drops to hold them.
Speed is the key as lighter material will simply pass over the mat.
Once you get your speed up, the only dragging along the bottom will be gold and heavies.
Everything else just passes by.

Glad your mats and other products are selling well! Good job in the marketing department  :)


For the best SEO and general best practices I would fix the HTML errors on your website soon!

I sent you all the fixes free of charge and I know you are busy - but I highly recommend getting your web master to get your site passing.

It might be a good idea to post some picture stills of what you consider "good capture". Instead of always video.

They do.
You can also order off Amazon.
The glue is about $5 and the tape is about $6 (Depending on size roll you buy.)
Both Lowes and Home Depot carry them.

Found it on the Home Depot.ca website and it's $6.97.  I'll go pick some up tomorrow so I'm ready for the weekend.
Thanks Fellers,

Great job on the video...  {cool^sign}
We've never run 3/4" exp metal so it was good to see it tried.
We prefer 1/2" and we have even gone one step smaller.
Do have one question... Can you install a sheet of 1/2" exp in the sluice?
No sure what you have as far as hold down system.
