DIY rock crusher

Post  mickb on Thu Jun 07, 2018 2:31 pm

hi all
looking for some ideas to make a cheap rock crusher
I have searched the forum but not come up with much
I recently dropped on a small area with a lot of very rough prickly reef gold
I have crushed some sample rocks in a dolly pot and recovered some fine gold using a gold pan after crushing
just looking for a way to speed up the crushing process
any ideas would be appreciated

regards

There was an  engine driven one  that sat on top of a 20 lt. bucket  Somebody else might come up with more details .

Think it was like a hammer mill .

like the idea of the one that attaches to an angle grinder
would be perfect only looking to crush small amounts
might be able to fabricate / cobble something together lol

You can buy a Keene rock crusher that sits on a bucket from Reeds prospecting supplies in W.A. Cost is AUD$1,490 . Reeds made one but looks like they do not make it any more .
