gold panning equipment how to make a rocker box

Plan, Design and Build a Homemade Gold Rocker Box

My recommended design for a rocker is to start buy building a sluice box 40 inches long, 16 inches wide on the bottom, sloped like a cradle, and with rockers at each end. The hopper would be 16 inches square and 6 inches deep, with a sheet metal bottom made of perforated steel with 1/2-inch holes.

Build Your Own Gold Rocker Box Or Gold Cradle

At the very dawn of the Gold rush to California, the rocker box also known as a cradle was perhaps the most used piece of gold prospecting equipment. For a time it was perhaps even more important that the gold pan. Mostly this was because the miner could make a rocker for himself in the field from rough sawn lumber cut in the forest. They are also easily portable. Rocker boxes were also

3/7/2018· The first step is to set the bed plate and secure it so that it will not shift or move around when the rocker is in operation. The best slope for the rocker will have to be determined by trial but if it is initially set at 1½ inches fall per foot of length, a few short trial runs will suffice to make any needed adjustment. Insufficient grade may cause sand to blanket the riffles and result in loss of fine gold. If

Cut some hardware cloth of whatever mesh you want to the same diameter as your plastic pipe. Heat the bottom end of the pipe on an old hot plate or wood stove. When the plastic starts to melt, take it off and set it on the wire cloth. The plastic will solidify and "weld" the screen to the bottom of the pipe.

8/10/2014· I've drawn up a basic rocker box in Google Sketchup. As shown in the second video, the idea is to use a manual bilge pump to supply water. I'll use a 1/2 or 1/4 inch sieve in the top of the box and run miners moss with expanded mesh in the sluice box. The angle of the sluice box is set at 10 degrees and the bilge pump will be 55 lpm. Hopefully this angle and waterflow will be enough to clear

How I built a recirculating sluice box for gold prospecting

I set the bottom of it in a gold pan to catch what washed through, blocked it up at what seemed like a good angle, and placed the garden hose at the top end to provide a flow of water. Then I started slowly pouring pay dirt in the top end. The first tests went quite well. The sluice actually captured most of the gold in the pay dirt. Panning out the material that washed through the sluice only
