Sorry iron bark you got the right idea I was explaining but it is around the wrong way!! Which would make the front of the tray a riffle as the wash leaves the tray . I will try and get a pic of what I mean ! In the meantime Whiskers is right take it off !!

The edge to the front is about 6 mm and is parallel to the bottom and the front of the tray is angled backwards ! Like a riffle

Sorry mate I got the numbers mixed up in the last post there fixed now. But this is what I mean photo one is how the tray sits in the unit. Photo 2 shows the tray I use a rubber floor mat in the bottom of the tray works well. Cheers.

Well done ironbark ! Now read Whiskers posts on the set up ,angles, top and bottom hoppers! Some may dismiss these things but yrs ago I stood beside Whiskers and we dug the same gutter ! He obtained about 25% more gold than I did because I was not paying enough attention to the angles of the banjo ,especially the bottom hopper !

Here's a pic to wet your appetite !! All from a banjo such as you are making !
