  1. Many thanks, Steve....looking forward to reading that tonight! jim
  2. All the best on your surgery.....I'll add a couple of prayers tonight. I hope Hard is right on Whites improving the SL. Jim
  3. I'm already using a 4 cell L-ion pack. 16.8 volts with a fresh charge. Steve Howard said that was about all the voltage the SL could handle. Reg had a couple of mods that allowed a faster sweep speed without losing sensitivity on small gold. I've got the writeup on those, just need the right technician to get it done. I was a radar tech in the Air Force, but Reg said it required somebody with experience in current devices. Jim
  4. If you find somebody doing the mods, please post it. I'd like to have Reg's mods for the SL done to mine. Need somebody with micro soldering skills from what Reg told me. Jim
  5. Last I knew, Reg had quit working on mods. Said he had a friend thinking about doing it, but no decision so far. Jim
  6. Many thanks! Jim
