For the lide of me, I can't figure out how the ping pong paddle is used in your appllication. LOL
Seriously, Nice job. Why the valve and pipe link?
G-pa made me do it, he gave me my first "Steel" pan.

Haha you just use it to hit the gold out of the earth the same way you woul hit a ping pong ball!!! It was just a clean surface so that's where the pics were taken... The valve when open allows water to flow out and wet dry material and then you close it you can suck everything up just like a normal dredge nozzle would run!

I like that idea... that would be cool to have on my 1.5 inch dredge.

Don't think too much, you'll create a problem that wasn't even there in the first place.

Heres the finished product! don't mind the hot pink, the guy at the paint shop thought it would be a fun joke, and it was free so you can't complain!

Yeah, the extra pipe bridge with nozzle will fill your work area with water and then you close it suction up the slurry.
Think of high-banking without the need to shovel all day!
