I`m undercover on the other side, a bit of plea bargaining and I`ll forget you confessed Jin.

I don't have a problem with people being anonymous if that's what turns them on, but on some other forums certain low life use it like a little kid throwing rocks over a fence. Cowardly 'no names' heaping abuse on others knowing that they are unidentified. 

At one time I copped heaps of foul and personal abuse from one character simply because I had honestly criticized a product. He carried on like he was some sort of monster, but through various means I was able to identify this 'keyboard warrior', who turned out to be a little five foot nothing weed. 

When anonymity is used to perpetrate cyber bullying and abuse it stinks. This sort of behavior is a sad reflection of the modern age.

Fortunately Steve runs a well oiled machine so none of that stuff lasts long here.  If anyone steps out of line they know about it quickly, I've had my share of slaps on the wrist....  He keeps us all behaving nicely. 

You've probably googled my name by now Reg and it will quickly show you where I worked and lived in Australia and you'll even see my name on NASA's website as it was sent up into space on a microchip on the STARDUST spacecraft, which visited Comet Wild 2 in 2004!  The closest I'll ever get to being an astronaut ?

I got Ridge Runner from a friend back when CB’s was popular. If I had to put a date on it I’d say middle 70’s.

 I don’t know why everything I’ve done was back when. haha

Names can be tricky. I had a friend named Robert Dick. He named his first daughter Ophelia.

      Ok, complete noob question here: When Im out there and listening for tones on my Equinox 800, why dont some sounds register a number? I hear all these little sounds and noises but when I go back over they sometimes disappear. Sometimes the noise changes or is very hard to find again. What can I do to help myself isolate these sounds and is every errant sound something to dig?

      I did a search on forums for possible locations in Sumpter as we are going to be there June 22-25. Most of them where older.  Is there some public areas that we can detect there?  Or is there a organization that I can pay for access? While were there just hate to miss an opportunity slip away.  Also going to Burns and John Day fossil area if anyone knows of some possibilities....detecting or other rockhounding activities... Thanks!

      Hello, recently I've been given some of my  Uncle's things that he used while prospecting in California from the 1970's until about 1995 in the motherlode area, I only panned as a child and observed stream dregding so this is all new to me.  I received an E-Z Pickins dry vac back pack.  It's missing a few things so it needs work, but it has a manual of 27 pages in fairly decent shape.  If anyone wants a copy I'm willing to make them one cost of materials and a small processing fee for my time.  I have a copy of Dry Washing for Gold thats 81 pages if anyone is searching for that publication.  Thank you.

      Wondering if anyone else has this issue with glare when detecting with the sun behind your back. The big screen reflects back. I was wondering if anyone has tried any anti-glare film and have any suggestions.

      I would like to introduce to you my new favorite hand digger. After about three weeks of detecting, I have come to love this new digger I have come across. It's small, light weight (about 10 1/2 oz.) and super strong. The handle design is not your typical T handle, It is reversed and angled for better leverage while digging. Great for some of us with bad hands and It's made from heat treated Chromoly steel. The edges are serrated and the tip is perfectly designed and sharp. The handle has a bed liner type grip and 3/4 inch tubing. The blade is 2 1/4 inches wide and 6 inches long. The overall length is about 12 1/2 inches at its longest measurement. This guy has figured out what diggers are supposed to be. I added a custom paint job and paracord /carabiner clip, The paint job  is holding up better than I thought and In my opinion this is one of the best diggers I have ever used.  Well where do you get one????? Lucky for you members here, It's made Here in the USA by one of our great members Kac. He makes them on a limited basis and Quantity so be aware that there are only so many to be had at a given time. Kac will give you all the details on pricing and shipping if you PM him.

      I've been updating this guide for almost twenty years now. It started back when there was little to offer in way of objective opinions on gold nugget detectors. That's not so much this case these days, but this is still the most comprehensive roundup available, along with some admittedly personal opinions about the models. These days we honestly have almost too many options, which can be confusing for beginners. So a few years ago I added my own short list of three models I recommend as safe picks for anyone around the world.
      The list was updated mainly to change my notes on the various Fisher 19 kHz models, where oddities in the First Texas marketing have now left the Gold Bug models high and dry as other FT 19 kHz models are available with better prices. I added warnings that the Minelab X-Terra 705 and GPX 4500 are in the process of being closed out and discontinued. Also added a big warning up front about counterfeit detectors - very common now in the nugget detector world.
