Hey Thanks Guys, I was just looking around and went to the links.  I will be getting some more sheet metal here shortly and will probably give a try at making a sluice box just to have around the house if I ever need one.  Living in a Desert makes it real hard to do any sluicing.  Right Homefire. Grin  I know that Homefire is on here 24 hours a day by the way it looks. And he is only about 400 miles away from me. This site is so full of information that it makes all the other sites look like beginners.  I love this place but don't post very much, but try to see what is going on everyday.

Danny, I got a hair in the you know where one day.

I  went to the guy here in town that does Sheet metal duct work for AC and Heating and told him what I wanted.

He just said Keep Talking.

Grabbed a sheet of metal and started cutting.

He built me a 48" long, 12" wide, 6" wall Sluice out of 32 galv sheet metal while I waited in less then 45 minutes.

As he was working I ask him to make a Riffle Tray with 1" riffles every 8".   He just keep asking questions as he worked.

He asked do you want them 90* or angled.

I said 45 down stream.

He Spot Welded the Riffles in the Tray and it was done.

Drilled some holes in the Side as I directed and All I had to do was put some Bolts and Wing Nuts and I had one.

He banged it off in less then a Hour.

Charged me $45.00 Time, Labor and Material.

Boy was I a happy Camper.
