Build your own gold prospecting equipment

Do it yourself gold prospecting equipment can often be a very fun way to learn more about how gold works in nature and building your own gold prospecting equipment can be downright fun too. Often there is a way to build the same equipment for hundreds less than what you would pay for it in a shop and the materials needed can normally be found at your local hardware store. Below is a collection of useful links that I believe might be of value to you. If you build some of your own equipment please be sure and share your experiences with other on our gold prospectors forum.
