Its taken a while but I am now ready to field trial the SM Super Gold Sucker at Slab Hut next weekend.
Getting the right plastic bits together took a bit of trial and error. But after a few goes I have now ended up with this
The SM Super Gold Sucker does come with some special design features. Like the secret patented valve system made out of a couple of washers, leather glove and milk bottle. Getting the valves to open / close was a real challenge and has taken lots of different trials. But I’m at a point now they seem to work. No photo - secret! But this is the valve assembly
There is also the Boulder Stopper. The sucker is so powerful it can suck boulders. And there is nothing worse than a boulder going up the nozzle and blocking the valves
The nozzle is big enough to suck up all those nuggets. So there is a built in Nugget Connector.
But the big question is - does it suck? Of course it does.
That’s the lid of the Gold Collector. Which has been designed so the water flowing into the bucket is displaced out of the holes by the gold being pumped into it.
Looking forward to next weekend to give it a go!
