|I've had my
CalSluice #2[B] for a year now, and am hooked on it. The low-velocity water flow
under the grizzly works great, and fines down to 100 mesh are easily retained in
both the v-mat and riffle sections of the sluice. Large flakes and pickers are
trapped in both the grizzly and, if knocked off, in the riffle section.
It's a delight to be able to shovel directly into the sluice. The slick plate
withstands the biggest rocks that my shovel will hold, and rocks as big as baseballs
travel easily out of the sluice. Only the biggest rocks need to be removed by
hand. The sluice length makes it easy to set up and obtain good water flow.
Thanks for a great sluice [...] !

|The CalSluice guys invited me
to join them on the East Fork of the San Gabriel to break in my new CalSluice #2B Box. As
a newcomer to the hobby they made sure to show me the ropes. From site selection to sluice
set-up, running material to clean-up I went from novice to advanced in the matter of 8
hours. The sluice is well built, works great and I have the expert advice now to get big
Thanks Mario, Jaye & Bob
