  • Homemade Mining Equipment

    Post your photos of your homemade or modified mining gear.

    I'll kick it off.


    This 6" dredge moved some gravel. 17 hp. It had a pump to prime the pumps. I used it in N. Ca before dredging was a crime. Worked great.




    Note how the header box works. The jet remains underwater until the last minute.



    And ya, the pontoons had to be upgraded.

    Here is one I made in New Zealand. A 4". It features a Lexan (plastic) sluice and soybean oil containers for floats. Tips of floats are made of ABS. New Zealand is a great place to spent the Alaskan winters, it's summer there, when it's -40 here.
