G’day all haven’t been able to get out lately due to moving house (worst job ever ) and work so have been collecting scrap metal from our work bins and have started making Franken sluice from the scrap ally started my build then seen wals highbanker and changed design so is a bit of a miss match but should be ok need to decide on following wals riffle set up or something else will probably depend on what’s available must tell you I haven’t rig welded ally for 20 years but I’m happy with the results cheers Muk.1599736519_52a04e66-7b36-47c6-8370-0ee4573adf83.jpg

Hey Mate looks good to me. You still have the skill those welds look good (Of course I can't weld so they all look good)

G’day all I used steel electrical conduit for the legs and drilled the holes at 1 inch spacings so it’s easy to set the amount you want to drop the front at the riffle set up the blue riffles are transport edge packing the mesh is ally catwalk mesh I will put some carpet under that not sure how I will hold the mesh in yet maybe bolts and wing nuts? Still have to find something for the classifying plate. If I classify first I won’t need that also working on the spray bar set up all up I think it should be ok cheers Muk.1600024179_3c842ee9-242f-41cd-a143-c6063bda6c91.jpg

Looks great Muk thumbsup I like that it's not too wide but still long. Just my opinion, but sluices and high bakers often seem way wider than they need to be for hand feeding and then also need a greater volume to work properly.

G’day all decided to modify my original sluice again have extended the top section by 300mm put some close ribbed rubber matting also some mesh and some riffles in should be able to dump full scoops in now and want take long to put a bucket of dirt through should be much better cheers Muk.1602393653_a99b0a17-ee50-4264-a9d2-327485a44943.jpg
