Bill's Rocker Box It all began with some spare boards I had laying around and an idea I've had for some time. I've always wanted to build and try out a small rocker box. Rocker boxes have a sort of a romantic nostalgic lure about them. Whenever I think of gold prospecting the 1800's rocker boxes come to mind.
One of the first devices used after the gold pan was the gold rocker box.The rocker allowed small operators to increase the amount of gravel handled in a shift, with a minimum investment in equipment.
