Not sure how long this has been going on, but I just tried to go to the Tesoro website at http://www.tesoro.com/ and got this message...

That means all my database links to their owners manuals are now broken, so will have to update those to alternatives, assuming this is the end of their website.

Probably didn't renew their hosting services.

RickUK, What part of UK are you in? I was stationed at RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge, Suffolk. 80 miles NE of London in 1977-1980. I left just before the Rhendlesham Forest incident with UFO's. I used to walk my dog through that forest.

Suffolk area is very steeped in history,and i best you had been into detecting back then,without giving specific town location i guess to give you some idea i am about 25 miles north of Roman Londinium or London as its commonly known as 🙂

From my house i can see the famous great North Road that was one of the main roman roads going from London up North,steeped in history from before Bronze Age right upto modern milled coinage.Must admit we are spoilt and if i am honest we take it for granted our history going back many thousands of years and very or almost no bottle tops 🙂 I can walk just a very small distance from my house and we have all sorts of history ie roman,saxon,celtic,georgian and modern day Victorian.

Both very steeped in Roman history,as the romans lived in the UK for 400 odd years those 2 areas that you have mentioned would be considered today prime hunting ground.Its a pity you could not turn the clock back and of hunted the area with a modern day detector.

But alas time stops for no man,but at least you did live in the area.Its nice to go back down good old 'memory lane' and think of some of the happy or possibly unhappy times.Thanks for sharing some of your interesting past must admit i always find those types of things very interesting.

      As oddles of Equinox warranty's are expiring, it's been relatively quite on the Equinox forums.
      On the Dankowski forum there was a call from Mr. Dankowski himself requesting feedback for features to be implemented by Minelab on the next Equinox iteration.  He and Steve H. appear to be two of the main beta testers in the U.S.
      Do we expect to see the next incarnation of the Equinox revealed at Detectival 2021 (if Covid doesn't shut it down a second year)?

      Just letting everyone overseas in Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania,Canada and everywhere else outside of the states know that I got the shipping rates corrected  for The Nugget Shooter's Field Guide, and reduced. Even the rates for ordering in quantity is way less.

      Minelab has just applied for an Australian Design Patent for a "Tray".
      Anyone have any ideas what this would be?

      Sorry for the cross post in meet and greet.
      New to the forum, just wanted to say hello before I started to ask questions here haha. Several years ago I bought a junker metal detector to test out the hobby, it died a couple years later now I'm back.
      Wondering how good Kellyco customer service is. Ordered a new MD from them and after 10 days of patiently waiting, I was sent what Is obviously a used machine. I paid for a new one so I'm a bit irritated about it. It's Sunday so I have to wait until tomorrow to call. I could have ordered one through Amazon, but thought I'd give them a try. Any issues with Kellyco before? Not looking to bad mouth anyone, just wondering if this is common business practice. They have been around a long time I see, so I guess I expected more from them.

      Got word recently, that both Tim Mallory and Mike Scott have lost their jobs at 1st Texas.  I think it was, maybe 2 years ago when Gene Scullion and others lost their jobs too.  That makes me wonder about Lupe, who is one of the workers at the main plant.
      I guess Covid has affected more than just a few businesses.
