Scott Ellis here, known as IRON MASK around other forums and detecting events. I run the minelabowners forum and I am the designer for the "Detecting-Innovations" "Tele-Knox" telescopic shaft for the Equinox. I am Canadian however I have been in Europe for 19 years and I have been detecting since 2010, currently own and Equinox 800 and a "dusty" CTX.
I have some of my finds featured in the Equinox Handbook by Andy Sabisch.
One of my best finds is a silver Roman Seal matrix that is now in a museum in Croatia.
My oldest find is a piece of pottery from the Neolithic period and was a surface find.
The season is just getting underway for us here in Europe and I hope to have time to get out and find the goodies.
Good luck and happy hunting to all.
Hi, Tony Hunt here from the lovely History rich county of Dorset in Southern UK. My passion for Metal Detecting started some 25+ years ago, pretty much 99% using all the different Minelab machines that were suitable for Coin & Relic Hunting. I own an XP Deus but never really took to it other than to use it in fluffy cultivated soils occasionally where my Minelabs aren't so happy. I currently run two Equinox 800s, Standard coil on one and the 15" on the other.
Some of you in the states may know me from mentions in Andy Sabisch's user manuals over the years, Explorer, Etrac, CTX and now Equinox. I have been involved along with my son Paul in finding three Caches / hoardes of coins of note plus quite a few coin spills and purse drops. My latest cache found just over a year ago with the Equinox was a clay pot that was intact and filled with over 1850 Roman Bronze coins from around the year 275AD. This find is now with the british Museum awaiting valuation and probably eventual sale to our local Salisbury Museum, the city where I found it nearby.
I have recently started a company called Detecting-Innovations. We manufacture and supply the Tele- Knox , the only Telescopic Carbon Fibre stem available at present to fit the Equinox.

I am new to this forum and wanted to drop a line and say thanks for having me. I am newer to the hobby due to military service and have started back up recently with a Nox800 that I purchased from Gerry in Idaho, who is by far the best dealer around and he is super helpful. I will definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a new machine.
Is there anyone else on here from Utah? Specifically the Utah County area that might want to do some detecting?
Hello, I have been beeping since the end of 2012. I come to learn and share what i can, i have found a little gold, some meteorites and coins.
