  1. Northeast And The GM 1000

    That`s a fantastic find mate. Well done
  2. I can only guess that to get it certified for Human use would cost a heap of dollars and apparently the stuff sells like hotcakes now without doing all sorts of clinical trials. Again I say, try it or don`t try it, completely up to the individual. Here is a article I found about the stuff before I first bought it. cheers https://www.todaytonightadelaide.com.au/stories/horse-gel
  3. OK, going off at a tangent, about 6 months ago I was put onto this stuff. I`ve had bad knees, elbows and wrists for years and for me this stuff is a miracle cure. I don`t think it`s a placebo thing because the first time I applied it I really didn`t think it would work. You may notice it says not for human use but for horses and dogs only, and I don`t care. For the first time in 25 years I am pain free in my wrists. I put a mate onto it a month ago and he now uses it daily for his knees. The guy that put me onto it has been using it for 20 years for arthritic hands. One of our chemist chains over here even sells the stuff. The funny thing is, they don`t sell anything else for horses or dogs. Try it or don`t try it. Completely up to you. Dave Sorry Steve if this is too off topic. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=rapigel&_sacat=0

    Hola Luis. Bienvenido al foro. Debes aprender montones aquí. Sé que tengo. saludos Dave
  9. I`ve got a bench at home that`s been getting more and more cluttered and yesterday I decided to have a clean up. In amongst all this stuff, I came across a jar that had this speci in it. I have no memory of it, so I asked the better half about it, and she has no memory of it either, but seeing I don`t remember it she`s claiming ownership, and that`s OK because I really don`t think it`s mine. I recon there is at least a half a gram of gold in this piece and neither of us remember it. It may have been on the bench for 5 or 6 years
  10. Hey hayesman. mate it all depends on why you are detecting. I detect because I want to find gold, not to make money out of it. I used gold I found with other detectors to pay for my 7000 and I have found enough gold with the 7 to replace the gold I used. cheers
  11. I came across this site a couple of months ago and I use it all the time for resizing my photos. Way quicker than going in and resizing them with Microsoft Paint. Some how with this site you don`t even have to upload the photos. From when I dragged this photo onto the site, it was back down in my download folder about 2 seconds later. I resized it 50% so it went from 1.22mb to 292kb. Apparently with the site you can do 150 photos in less than 60 seconds, but the most I`ve ever done in one go is 6. I`ll never need to resize that many photos in one go, I just don`t find that much gold https://bulkresizephotos.com/
  12. Should There Be An Off Topic Forum?

    Steve on another forum a few years ago they had a unmoderated off topic area and it was a complete disaster. In my opinion, that way lies damnation
  13. A Lighter Weight GPZ 7000?

    I was told a couple of yrs ago that in the 14" coil there is over 5000 ft of wire and if that`s the case that`s where the weight comes from. No way did Minelab make the 14" and 19" heavier just for the sheer hell of it. I`m thinking that to reduce weights on the coils would be to reduce performance or maybe they would not work at all.
