2 Replies and 559 Views 3in Dryland dredge nozzle question  559  2 Started by I'm new to dredging. Just bough a 3in dryland dredge nozzle from GBE Mandrel. When I run it in my highbanker with the keene pump (2in) supplying it, it blows out the nose of the nozzle.

(~3feet ish) I bring up the possibility of it being the gun, because when I look inside the gun at the jet itsself, its necked down to maybe 1/2' -3/4' max... And would assume it needed to be b...

1 Replies and 661 Views Place that's easily accessible  661  1 Started by I'm looking for a place to take my blind brother. We have reconnected after a 6 year fall out, and in that time I have been bitten by the gold bug. I live near Sacramento, and would love to take him to a place to pan. I'd prefer a gpaa claim, as I'm a new member. But anywhere would be ok.
