    Loose Rods, Wobbly Rods, Rod Flex

    Well, I've read this thread and my Equinox shaft is still solid. I must be immune to the power of suggestion. Strange, I just noticed one of the legs of the chair I'm sitting on is wobbly.

    Free Target ID Cards

    I really appreciate the gesture, but there is no need to worry about postage or material costs for the cards. It's nice doing something for others, that's payment enough.

    Post the Aussie numbers and currency names, and I will edit the US template and post the PDF on this thread. I can easily edit the template for other currencies as well. If someone can provide Civil War common relic target Ids, I will make a PDF for those too.

    Thanks, but that's really not nessesary, I've found where my wife hides the stamps.
  5. I use plain water to clean coins. A 10x Nikon loupe for identification if coins are in really worn condition.

    I still have some laminated cards if anyone is interested. If you want to print your own, the PDF is below. idcardfinal.pdf

    Depth Meter And Target Id's

    I'm guessing the Equinox is calibrated to quarter sized coins, in neutral soil by what it says in the manual. The arrows on the Equinox scale = 2" (approximately) for each arrow. I started counting the arrows on the depth gauge as 1" for targets falling in the penny/dime ID range. This seems to be effective so far, and more accurate in my highly mineralized soil. I'm still very new to this machine and learning everyday.

    Platinum Diamond Ring

    I checked my wife's 2 diamond platinum rings. 1 was a 10, and the other a 12, in air testing. She wouldn't let me bury them.

    Yes. I kind of went overboard today and made a bunch of these cards, so it might be a while before I run out.

    Now they are 2 sided. VID on the front, with settings on the back.

    I've only had my 800 for about a week, so I made some simple ID cards using Steve's graphic, to get familiar with the machine. I have extras, and with Steve's permission, I'm offering 1 to the first 50 interested. These are simple, pocket size, laminated cards, with large bold font. Target IDs on the front, detector settings menu on the back. If you want 1, send me a PM with your mailing address. USA addresses only, please. I promise it won't take as long to get as it did your Equinox.

    Depth Meter And Target Id's

    In my limited use, no. 39-40 has been iron each time; probably wrap around. I haven't had a solid 38 yet, but when I do, I hope it's silver.

    Got Some New Plates Today

    California vehicle registration has gone up for 2018. Mine is $304 now, it was $240. The gas tax was increased in November too. It's supposed to fund deferred roadway maintenance. Our roads sure need it. Idaho is a beautiful place, fine people. I spent most of my childhood summers near McCall. Floated 120 miles of the Salmon River a few years back. Miss it... Scott Sea level, raining sideways.
