A Special Thank's to Tom from the Allegagheny Chapter for purchasing one of our slucies at the Ohio Buckeye Chapter's Gold Rush Day's show. His kind words were very well appreciated at the GPAA gold show held in Carlisle PA.

comment: I had the distinct pleasure of spending some time with Bill and Shelley during October. It was a genuine pleasure.

The quality and finish of their sluiceboxes exceeds that of any I have seen.

They are genuine craftsmen and care about their products and customers, as well as being excellent prospectors in their own right.

I thank them and hope that all prospectors will give their gear some use. You will NOT be disappointed.

Dear Sir/ Madam

My sluice box just arrived today.  I was very surprised at how lightweight it is and yet still very durable and sturdy.  I love the way the upper assembly unlatches and lifts up on one end only rather than becoming completely detached (like most other sluice boxes).

You guys seem to have a really good thing going.  Sometimes, it's just a matter of getting the word out.  I just happened to find you guys by doing a Google search (just so you know).

Anyways, I am VERY PLEASED with both your service and product.

I will recommend your sluice boxes to anyone I think would be interested.

Thanks again for everything and I wish your business much success.

comment: Bill and Shelley Webb are awsome folk. A message was conveyed to Bill through the Midwest Prospector Chuck Lassiter an order was placed on 3 buckabilly custom sluice's. Within 2 weeks my sluice's were delivered to an outiong at the Swank Claim in Bellville Ohio that we attended. I can say without a dought that this is the best sluice I have owned and look forward to purchasing more. For a company to go out of there normal routine and custom make sluice's for individuals is hard to find these days. Thanks Bill and Shelley. Many thanks from the Hoosier State. I look forward to a long relationship with Buckabilly Sluice .
Many Thanks  Ed Romine

Got to use my 40" for the first time yesterday. Must say that I'm very impressed. Used it in a small stream with slow water, the design worked wonders.
Thanks, Jason

comment: I got my 40" sluice with the 14" flair on the third and used it the very next day. I'm glad to say that after running 5 gallons of pre-panned concentrates thru the sluice(otherwise thought to be colorless) I saw colors right away and ended up with quite a bit of fines that otherwise would have been lost. Thank you for making a very nice sluice!! This is nice and light for packing into the backcountry, and catches alot of fines!! Keep up the good work!!

comment: Bill made a sluice for my son and we just love it.  Great, sturdy construction but light enough to carry anywhere.
Bill and his wife are at the top of our list.  I wish I can say they will always get our repeat business but, with the quality of the one we have - we don't plan on needing to buy a new one for a long, long time!

Sluice arrived today.
I've been a construction laborer for over 34 years and have been around sheet metal duct work a lot of that time. Therefore, I know what cut fingers are from this stuff.  You evidently have a union sheet metal worker of someone who has been around this type of thing, a lot.
Excellent workmanship in your products. Very pleased.
        Thanks, Stephen G. Bennett Sr.

I bought a 40 inch box from Bill last spring at an outing at the Swank property. It fast became my favorites sluice to use. Because it's setup is easy no matter what the water speed is. I think it's because of the ratio between the flair and the size of the sluice box. And you don't even have to take it apart to clean it I just drop it into a 5 gallon bucket you just wash it out. I highly recommend them.

"... WOW !!! This Buckabilly sluice ROCKS! ON TIME and BETTER THAN EXPECTED! Now that I have my Buckabilly Sluice I KNOW THERE ARE NONE BETTER anywhere for THE PRICE and THE CRAFTSMANSHIP. I LOVE BUYING a MADE IN THE U.S.A. PRODUCT.
Bill, you are the consummate craftsman and Shelley, you handled all my questions with the knowledge of a prospector and the professionalism of a successful business person. Now, the way I see it - that only comes from hard work, dedication and integrity. YOU TWO ROCK ! ! THANK YOU! - Trish Barr (GPAA, GPOC member - Denver, CO) ... "
