test sluice box done made with scrap folded flashing i found at the tip for $10 , think i may need longer but i have a 2.8m length sitting waiting if needed, 340mm wide 1200mm long,
just need to add riffles and water system for the contraption and hopefully i can test it out on the 17th and 18th

Hey pcman, nice little build.

When you add water just watch as you may need sheilding to contain the spray and flow that can come out the screening/classification area, wont need much pressure flow or volume before its needed.

Hopefully saying something in advance will help you think ahead of time should it turn out to bevthe case.

good idea, i have plenty of leftover pvc i recon i can heat it up and make a neatish cover,

any tips for the water system, im thinking run in via the out end through the trommel, then a tap and another nozzel into the hopper, kep the hopper nice and clear for more gravel dumping
