Nice. I have been trying to source out something like that to crush quartz on my mining claim. The small jaw crushers are hard to come by. Usually they are verry massive machines. Seems like here in Canada miners either used mortars and pestles (small opperations) or massive machines capable of handling tons of material a day.

Here is a small hand operated crusher out of an assay office that I bought out of a museum 20 years ago...

Hi,
I have a small "case crusher" made by Denver fire clay co., when I looked up the patent it was to William Case who in some of his later patents was listed an assigner to D.F.C. co.. Mine is the only one of it's style that I have found so far(I'll try to get a photo posted), Does anyone have any info. on this make or on what speed these small crushers should turn at?. Thanks Nathan.

Hi, here are the photos of my little crusher, since it was sold as a Case crusher made by Denver fire clay I assume they later bought the patent for there own?. It's the only one of it's type that I have found so far, the fixed jaw is easily removed to change the shim pack for a different size of crush or to clean it to avoid contaminating assay samples. http://www.google.com/patents/about?...++crusher+1903 Anyone have more info, Thanks Nathan.

Hi Oldmotor,
Thanks for the better pic.s it shows how different and yet much the same our crushers are. Does your crusher have any patent dates on it?. Nathan.
