I found this site that has posted all of the Tesoro Brochures for each model. Great walk down memory lane for those who love their Tesoros.

Cool site, even has the air tests for comparison for the Tejon so you can determine if it needs tuning.. bad part is who will tune it?

Saw my Bounty Hunter  Treasure Tracker ID there too.

At least one doesn’t have to worry about the lifetime warranty if you should decide to open it up and turn the sensitivity pot. Lol!

Think I'll do that as a last resort, wish there were wiring diagrams out there on it. My luck I'll have it so out of whack I'll start picking up talk radio. How annoying would that be?

      Is the Delta 4 pin connector proprietary or is it something someone sells somewheres? Looking into building a coil for my Tejon and if that goes well will use it on a Lobo mod.
      Thanks

      I’m looking for internal pics of the power box. I have a few wires that broke loose from circuit board. Also the 2 wires coming from the battery compartment. Thank you

      OK. I have a nice little Compadre with the 5.75" coil. I also have a Vaquero with the 11*8 coil.   Will I benefit having a Concentric coil for my Vaquero or would it be a little bit redundant?  And what coil would you get, as the 5.75" concentric is pretty much unobtainable, for the Vaquero if replacing the coil?
       
      Thanks

      The Tesoro Pantera is a VLF discriminating metal detector that was produced around 1990 by Tesoro Electronics. It had a cult following due to its proficiency in extracting non-ferrous targets from dense ferrous trash. Information on it is rare so I am reproducing the material from the catalog page below. Instruction Manual at tesoro.com

      GENERAL DESCRIPTION
      The Pantera is a high performance VLF metal detector which is capable of rejecting ground mineralization and buried metallic trash simultaneously. It includes Notch Discrimination so that most common pull tabs can be rejected without losing nickels and small gold rings, or so that only a particular band of desired targets will be detected. Notch Tone Target ID provides a low tone for targets below the Notch Level setting, and a higher tone for targets above the Notch Level setting. Design emphasis was placed on performance and ease of use, while minimizing or eliminating those troublesome adjustments that could cause a loss of performance if not used properly.
      The Silent Search Discriminate Mode is based on motion, which means that the search coil must be moving slightly to detect a target. The motion required is so slight that pin-pointing is possible in this mode, however a No Motion pin-point mode is included, which with the 8 inch open center search coil makes pin-pointing a very simple task.
      A Ten Turn Ground Adjust control is used, which allows the detector to be adjusted to virtually any type soil. This control allows the operator to get the absolute maximum performance from this detector.
      The unit is furnished with an 8 inch open center concentric search coil. We feel that this coil will provide excellent performance in most situations. The open center greatly simplifies pin-pointing.
      The detector can be used as a pole mounted arm rest unit, or as a body mount unit. It can be converted easily without tools.

      Hi All,
       
      I am looking to get a Tesoro very soon as I had one years ago (Laser Scout - UK version)  but I'm torn between a Tesoro Cibola and Vanquero.
      Also are these machines good on dry beaches also how about wet sand?  Is the C better than the V and if anyone can help?
      I'm hoping some members here may have some information as to help me on this subject.
