  1. Some Gold Basin Love

    Nice Gold Cris.... congrats ... I have a feeling much more is in the future ... Dave
  2. Most Effective 19 Inch Coil Cover

    Fred, Thank you !!! I used 3m Flexiclear body seam sealer, it makes a strong bond, and is a synthetic rubber, I can also remove it without damage. I would not recommend epoxy, unless you want more of a permanent attachment. Any strong bond/ silicone will work. Dave
  3. Most Effective 19 Inch Coil Cover

    Hi Fred, Like others on this post who made their own for the 19" , I did the same. I bought a sheet of 1.5mm Clear Lexan Makrolon Polycarbonate, for $45, long enough to make one for the 19" coil, and I made one for the stock 14" coil also. I cut it, and used a heat gun to form it around the coil for a snug fit. I made the front form fit the 19" coil, to help eliminate any dirt from going on top of coil. Here are some pics of making it. Dave.
  4. I sold my 5000 with all coils and accessories to someone on craigslist. I got a fair market price for it. I also included a full day of training with it, and actually got several inquiries even after sold. Also you will save listing fees from ebay and paypal if you sell on the forums, or craigslist. Dave
  5. Doc sure gets around... .... Oh man Jen, that Jungo Road loves tires.... Its claimed some from me also. Hope you get something good out there.... Dave.
  6. Identity Of Minelab Shovel

    Same as Lunk, Minelab sent me one, when the gpx5000 first came out, and I purchased one, still have it somewhere 😞
  7. Nice Rite Fred. and piece of gold...I went to look for those meteorites a few years ago, there was dig holes all over a small hill... Dave
  8. GPZ 7000 Wish List

    1. Password protected, so if it gets stolen it will not work. 2. Save multiple settings like the CTX 3030 has. 3. I like your clock idea Andyy, I'm always having to look at my phone or GPS for time, as I don't wear a watch. Dave
  9. Exploring Franconia

    Great finds Randy, congrats.... It is a large area to cover. Dave
  10. Gold N Meteorites At Gold Basin Saturday

  11. Got out Saturday for a day hunt at Gold Basin, Arizona. Ended up with 3 Gold Nuggets, and a few meteorites, wish the weather stayed like this all the time ..... Dave.

  13. A Highly Magnetic Specimen

  14. Ucla Lecture 4/23 & 5/14

    Good info Mitchel, thanks.... If you happen to talk to Dr Steve Chesley, could you ask him if he could calculate meteorite falls during dark flight? I will be in Salem Oregon during the eclipse, to get total eclipse, going to send the drone up, and get some shots from 400 feet up... Dave
  15. Friday Specimen Gold Find

    Hi Jason, No haven't got a chance to use it in the old patches.... need to get out there and try it. I dont think the 5000 would have seen this. One thing I love about the ZED is its sure sounds off on the Spongy and Specimen gold. Swinging that 19" sure does give you a good work out though, no need for a Gym membership ..
