    Haven't done much drywashing, but when I did we dug the material
    first, and then moved it to near the drywasher.

    I do see the logic in your design, but I'm thinking it might cause
    more problems than benefits. If you load the tube, swing over the
    DW'er and then release the dirt, you're not standing there to control
    the amount being fed to the DW.

    If you want to move larger volumes of material to your DW location,
    I'd use a wheelbarrow. Much easier than hauling buckets, and you'd
    move much more volume.

    To me looks like a heavy gauge semi clear plastic. Pretty cool design powered by a hand drill & moves a lot of stuff fast.If I needed one I'd build it

    Not sure what that belt is made from but look up lay flat hose in a large diameter like 8 inch and you could split in 2 and have a very wide heavy duty PVC belt if you stitch it together or rivet it together. Look up Lay flat hose Irrigation for Agriculture 8 inch PVC. Also if you make the conveyor make sure to make the end adjustable with a way to tension your belt.

    Put a round ring around your dive roll about 1/2" dia. It will track your belt and keep it centered and not track off,good luck, marion

    Why can't you just move the drywasher next to the hole?

    How deep is the hole now, and how much deeper do you plan to go?
    Would be nice to have a partner to work topside while you work the hole.

    A partner and I worked a 20 foot deep hole by building a tripod over the hole with a pulley at the top.
    We used a 12v winch to hoist buckets of pay dirt out of the hole.

    Before we partnered up he was climbing out of the hole everytime he filled a bucket.
    Just by adding me as a helper topside he was able to more than triple his solo production.

    Also much safer to have a pard just in case of a collapse.
    If you were closer to me, I would have been happy to volunteer.
