Your final set up looks great, congrats on a first class job.

Thanks, but tell me where the gold is? Smile

Morning GM, Head out to any old dryblowing area that you can get permission to scratch on and fill a few buckets of dirt to put through your machine.
Add a bottle of rinse aid to your recirculating water and spin that wheel. Smile
In the early days of our dry blowing we retreated several heaps left behind from a commercial dryblower (heaps were a couple of metres high.
Each one of those heaps gave up about an ounce of very fine gold they missed.
Good luck, hope to see the results soon.

Nightjar,
I have read that borax is good to use, is rinse aid better do you know?
I not sure where in South Australia dry-blowing was done, and its also very difficult to find spots here on private property I am lead to believe. I may need to come to the West for my next holidays.

Rinse aid definitely aids fine gold retrieval if recirculating your water using wheel or sluice.
Borax is used when smelting gold.
