[TheJogdredge] has been testing out his new gold washing machines that he made at home. By running dirt laced with rocks through his DIY devices, gold and precious materials can be filtered through. A video of the process can be seen embedded below.
The entire gold mining system is 100% homemade and is powered by a dependable Honda GX120 motor. The machines are meant to be easily lugged around from site to site and were designed with portability in mind.
No plastic parts were used in the system, making these trommels extremely durable and sturdy. Roughly, the rig weighs about 240 pounds dry, and approximately 265 soaking wet with a sluice box attached. The rubber tires allow for the machine to be maneuvered from place to place without much hassle.
Although the parts are described on the website, no how-to instructions for this specific device can be found online. This is probably due to the fact that [TheJogdredge] is trying to sell his products and make some money. Releasing the instructions on how to build your own would most likely cut into the potential profits of his design. Regardless of which, this is portable gold mining trommel and perfect for those looking to step up their gold mining and prospecting game.
