DIY sluice Flare

Hi everyone , I am trying to make a flare for my 10inch sluice , what thickness aluminium and what width at the top should I have ? I am thinking length of 250 mm to fit inside my box for easy transportation .
I have just purchased a dream mat and some 2.8mm riffles for the top end , do you think I need a mesh over the dream mat or will it do the job by itself

Not a gold sniffer myself, but KiwiJW made one out of a roadcone if this is what you’re after…

Where abouts did you purchase the riffles from out of interest

you dont need anything at all on top of dream matt…nothing at all…

I think he is talking more about a flare at the head of his sluice box, like this.

I used to make these to fit my sluice boxes. Here is a diagram of the measurements.

That V ripple is a thing of beauty.
