Deedee I have no gripes whatsoever with the guy ! He may be a top bloke ! I dunno I have never met him but when ya make sweeping statements !!!!!! Lol! 

Someday has put up a great little addition to the top box !! A little retainer to hold back the first flush of fines with wash shovel full ! Also I see your sluice has no slick plates at all! Not the way I build my sluices !  But there is a wealth of posts in here about all aspects of building a banjo so I won't go into the details again . 
Also the removable tray is a great part of the system , you can shovel test a spot( 10 to 20 shovels) and without Turing off or upsetting your bottom end of your sluice you can take out the catch tray and pan it off to see what the spot is actually giving you . 
As I said I don't have a grip with the person and I would love to catch up with him and compare notes over a cold one !

Hey Ark that little strip does work well ay!
the small amount of water that will go over from time to time quickly gets gobbled up at the very back where the holes are, the occasional flake too  Cool 

angles?? I'm runnen about inch'n a quarter per foot, had it 2" when I was tryen out different cloth under the riffles Laughing 
hang on hang on, what's the point of doing that if it's not how you gonna actually run it when in proper go mode affraid 
and remember! note to ones self? Don't release the riffles to do a test clean up with the old girl runnen when ya got cloth under the riffles  Q07  Q25

Deedee it will certainly not loose gold as long as you don't bog it ! Then like any sluice the fine gold will skip across the top and out the end of the sluice ! 
Now if you want to check if you are loosing any gold place a pan at the end of the sluice and put maybe 5 shovel full through the unit and then check the pan !!! Do not leave the pan there all say or for an hour or whatever ! Why ?  I refer you back to my opening sentence ! The pan has bogged and the fine gold will skip on its way! 
Many a day I have shovelled the tailings down from the pan and shown the guy the gold he was loosing, but he told me at lunch time he wasn't loosing any gold because he had a pan at the end of his sluice and that would show Him if he was loosing !

Deedee, stick with the banjo link, she's a gooden  Cool 
and like Lee said, a screen for the pickup is a must must must must have!


The suction ought to be as short as could reasonably be expected and the lay level either 11/2 to 2 inch (40 to 50 mm) it won't influence the siphon yet would i be able to state that I discover anything over 2.5 hp a misuse of petroleum and on the off chance that you are utilizing over a 5 hp siphon in a few regions the officers don't care for it ! In any case, I don't have the foggiest idea about the circumstance that you are prospecting in so I mention those objective facts reservedly!

So as to battle the Victorian dirts the banjo utilizes a blend of 1.6 to 2.0 mm openings to punch gaps in the mud and afterward places it into suspension and afterward down your floodgate !

This functions admirably on the pickup !
