Mining Equipment is not Cheap! Inexpensive Alternatives for Gold Mining Tools and Equipment Including Crevice Vacuum

Here is a website with a host of ideas for building your own. What caught my eye was a design for making a gasoline driven vacuum for pulling those big flakes out of crevices. You can use all the help you can get when mining for gold. After paying $5 for a leaf blower he found at a yard sale, he got a 5 gallon vacuum at Lowes and finished off the contraption. It's beautiful. He figures it cost a total of $60 to build. If you have looked at prices at gold mining stores you know that they can run $400 to $500.
This site also has about 8 more ideas for either do it yourself, or alternative cheaper tools for carrying out gold prospecting.
This site has good ideas and good photos. It is worth the time and good reading. More about gold mining tools.  http://goldadventures.biz/my_equipment
