  1. Fun In The Sun

    WTG nice to see you are still finding the yellow stuff.
  2. What's The Biggest Golden Sun Baker You've Ever Found?

    This is a 33.85 oz nugget found at Ganes cr Alaska in 2004 with a GB II using a 14" coil. It was laying on top with the sun shinning on it.
  3. Merry Christmas Tree

    Merry Christmas Gerry and I don't see my Equinox under the tree yet. Your old friend Steve
  4. Using Old Headphones On GM 1000

    I had to rewire my good Nugget Buster head phone cord so it will work with my GM 1000. I put a 1/8" plug on the end that had a 1/4 ' plug. They work fine now.
  5. Usb Camera Again

    When you hunt with the gold monster, you have to have a camera like this to see the little pieces of gold it finds.
  6. My Monster Experience

    Every time I go out I find gold. I still have not had any falsing problems yet. I keep my coil wire tight against the shaft and I push the coil through a lot of brush. If I hit the coil cable to hard it will false. I love this machine My poor old GB II thinks that I have abandoned it. I cannot wait to go out again.
  7. Reports Of GM1000 5" Coil Touch Sensitivity

    I run my coil wire straight up the stem and secure it with velcro ties and I have never had an issue with it being touch sensitive. I run the coil around and through brush with out any noise. I run the sensitive as high as I can get away with it. It still finds gold.
  8. Reports Of GM1000 5" Coil Touch Sensitivity

    I tie my coil wire so that it runs straight up the shaft. I use those velcro ties and have not had any falseing. I do this on my other machines and never get any falseing from touching the coil wire.
  9. A Monster Day

    That gold monster is habit forming. I have found gold every time I take it out. That thing would go nuts at Ganes cr.
  10. Peg's Summer Gold Trip

    I would love to find just one Rye Patch nugget. Very nice nugget Peg.
  11. A Monster Day

    We went up to an old wash site on a shape ridge and I got a good reading on a rock out crop. I dug down and found a nice picker about two inches in the dirt and rock. I went over the hole and got another reading. Another picker. I kept doing this until got about 6" down. I got 9 pieces that weighs 3.9 gram. It was at the end of the day and my battery was down. I will go back another day and tear that top of the ridge apart. There will be more gold in that area. I am about to put my Gold Bug II away for a while, but never sell it.
  12. That Safety Wire That Holds The GM1000 Battery Door In Place

    If I ever loose my loop, I will know where I can find one. Thanks Steve
  13. My Own Gold Monster Shaft Modification

    I like it. I am going to do the same thing to my GM. I have some extra straight stems to work with and an extra lower shaft for the big coil.
  14. My GM1000 Methodology - Manual Versus Auto Sensitivity

    Very good info Steve. You should go to work for Minelab and write instruction books for them. The GM 1000 book is short on good instructions..
  15. Crumby Afternoon

    Nice stuff. If I had not had so much to do, I would liked to have went with you. We can try for next weekend with the GM 's .
