  1. Yo Adam... Been up in Prescott shooting a video for our Park Smarts for Kids publishing company...I was going to get in my mining equipment storage trailer and get stuff out but Dodacious raised hell x2 with me because I'm not supposed to lift anything over 10 lbs untill around Jan. 1 ... This sucks, but after a $30,000 operation guess I better pay attention...My Bro-in-Law used the 151 about 2 years ago and said it was working great ... I've got the blower blade or whatever you call it someplace and I also have a baggy with several of the special electrostatic replacement cloths...Would love to move this ASAP due to a bunch of $$$ cost on the back operation that put use behind the 8-ball... Cheers, Ron

  2. I tried but could not get on the auction site...It just kept flashing... Cheers, Unc
  3. I still hate the idea of selling this equipment, because I know if the SHTF as many are saying, this equipment could provide day-to-day living expenses ... I still can't lift any thing over 10 lbs., but will sell the 151 monster recovery keene vibrostatic drywasher for $595 plus shipping (or free pickup in Wickenburg) ... I'll sell the Gold King 2.5" dredge for $300... I also have a custom 6' by about 18" wide aluminum sluice box for $395, which is about half what it cost me to have built ... Hungarian riffles. ... I'm sorry I can't provide pix, but I'm still a bit stove up from the back surgery! These are awesome recovery equipment that will quickly pay for them selves if you shovel in... Cheer's Unc!
  4. Whites makes both concentric and DD coils that work with GM2, VSAT, GM3, GM4 and GMT...I've also got the GM 6" coil which is a DD...Cheers, Unc PS, here's a review I did on it.
  5. Very nice nugglets! Used to be some great nugglet patches out at Vulture Red Basin... I was finding tons of dinks at a spot at LSD then Bill came to sample the patch and found a very nice, deep in caliche real nugget...around 3 DWT as I recall...It was too deep for my GB2... WTG, BD! Cheers, Unc
  6. Yo All... I'm fixin' to sell my 151 Keene Drywasher and my 2.5" Gold King Dredge... Haven't got any pix of them because the docs say I can't lift over 10 lbs., but they are both awesome older machines that have produced pounds of gold for me ... I haven't set a price yet, but will entertain offers... They both have been reconditioned in the past 2 years. I would not sell them, but my back surgery just ends my heavy lifting days... I'll get a price and pix up soon as I can get some help to carry them out of storage, but will certainly look at any offers, based on my money back guarantee that they work as intended...Cheers, Unc
  7. That is so cool, Bill...When can I buy some of your honey? I only like to eat local honey because of the extra health benefits, plus store bought honey is general honey flavored corn syrup! Cheers, Unc
  8. Does anyone know the current status of WMD? Their website has disappeared and last I heard no one was answering the phone? Clay? Anyone? ... Cheers, Unc
  9. WTG, Bill... I've found them like that with my 4500 I got from you and a 14E mono Nuggetfinder but I have to move my coil at about a foot a week!... Cheers, Unc
  10. I don't hunt my GB2 in Disc, but I have learned to use it to ID gold vs. ferrous and lead... 99% reliably! ..Cheers, Unc!
  11. Bill..Dodie is working with Creations in Thread which does T-Shirts, Hats and many other things .. Bobbi Brooks owns and runs it and they have a bunch of very sophisticated big machines that seem to be able to do just about anything.  Their new location is in the old ice cream place behind Circle K in the middle of town.. She is amazingly talented and you could take your ideas in and discuss with her...FYI ... Cheers, Ron

  12. Nice nuggies, Bill ... I'm chomping at the bit to get back out now that my back is fixed! No pain = gold gain! Cheers, Unc
  13. I have found myself returning to my old pounded patches even after I'm sure they're cleaned out ... I was sure I had my old Happy Ridge patch cleaned out so stopped going to it... Then one day, months later, I was out cruising and decided to hook my Joey up to my 4500 and climbed the steep ridge ... Then I noticed a clump of devils claw and little cactus I had found tiny gold around ... Just below, I found another tiny one, then stuck Joey right into the clump .. Sounded like I hit a beer can, but out popped this half ounce beauty, biggest one from the ridge!!! Guess the old saying is right: "You can never get them all!" Cheers, Unc
  14. Nice nuggies, Adam ... That sheep is a notorious ISIS spy, wandering the desert to recruit rich prospectors to their cause!... WTG ... Cheers, Unc
  15. What detector and coil did you use to find that, BD? Cheers, Unc
