What are these gadgets?
« on: October 09, 2018, 08:40:54 AM »
Total newbie here, probably asking for information that is obvious to everyone else here.

For a bit of context, this post explains my situation.

Is anybody able to help me identify what these things are?

Those pics look like an old Gold Sluice Box..... Perhaps 'He' used it in his hunt for Gems... There are a few Gold locations around Glenn Innes...

Top picture is an old trommel
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

Middle picture is probably an old pair of grinding wheels.  The visible one looks like it was a expanded belt wheel.  Motor looks dead.

Last pic is an old river sluice and what looks like a sieve next to it.

You're seeing more than I can Jerry, We've got Turnbulls "faster better sooner" NBN so the huge pictures take weeks (well quite a while) to down load, I gave up trying to look.

Or if you are using an Apple, drag to the desktop and then double click to open from the desktop.

First one is definitely a Trommel
The second a grinder or buffer
And the 3rd a Sluice
And I wonder if the Sluice attaches to the Trommel to catch any "FINE" Gold ?
