Wow- That's nice stuff. I get to make a lot of stuff like that, but rarely get to take pics cuz of needy-ass need it now customers. That's really great high quality stuff, even obvious from the cell phone pics. Keep posting, I'll steal your ideas! LOL
It might be a dumb question, but what is a highbanker?

highbanker, is essensially a powered gold mining sluice. You shovel your dirt into the "shovel pan" that then pushes the material into the "slurry shoot" where it passes under the spray bars that wash off the larger rocks that dont fall thru the grizzly screen. Once there it falls into the sluice part of it, and passes over the riffles where the gold is seperated out of it. It is of course hooked up to a water pump or hose to work. I made one of these in high school for my senior project then later on I bought a 4 foot box and pan brake for my house and made a few of these for kinda a hobbie thing, now trying to get them going, got a couple at some local mining shops. Thanks for the compliments, I wish the pictures of the cupola where better, that one turned out really nice.
