I really like his videos. I'd enjoy meeting him in person. Seems like a nice fella.

The only thing is where he detects is a lot different than what we detect over here in the states.

I don’t guess I’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting Gary but I always like his videos.

 Like always I want to thank Tnsharpshooter for posting it .

Thanks for posting this video David.

I really enjoy all of Gary's informative videos very much. This one really showed the truth about the ORX and Deus (and most single frequency VLF detectors) as far as depth and loss of numerical ID even on 6 to 8" low to mid conductor targets in really mild dirt as shown in this video.

Where I hunt, the loss of accurate target ID starts at 3" with little or no numerical ID at 4 to 5" due to mineralization.

I mostly use my ORX for gold prospecting so numerical target ID is not very important to me until whatever is in the hole is out. I use the iron probability bar and the characteristics of the audio most of time. 

In a modern aluminum trashy park with moderate to high mineralization, not knowing what the target is when it is 3" deep and there are thousands of shallow targets..........a bit of a nightmare.

The Deus was designed for Euro style field detecting, and the Orx is obviously just a subset of the Deus, aimed at gold prospectors. Due to the fact that good targets with either machine can read as anything non-ferrous, they both are basically beep-dig detectors. The best made in my opinion, if your goal is simply to extract non-ferrous items out of dense ferrous trash.

Due to exactly what Jeff mentions they have not however found as much favor with U.S. park hunters. I’m not saying people can’t and do not use them for that. It’s just that digging a minimum amount of holes based on accurate target id at depth is important, people tend to go multifrequency. A lot of people therefore would love to see a multifrequency detector from XP.

      So, I'm going to get another pinpointer for a backup, and would like something to compliment (or replace) my Garrett Pro-pointer AT.  I've heard good things about the Teknetics Tek-Point , and the Fisher F-Pulse, which I believe are essentially the same product.
      Anyone have any other suggestions?

      Sometimes while out detecting I wonder about the likelihood of digging into utility lines.  The obvious one is sprinkler heads or lines, but those I've encountered seem pretty sturdy, although if plastic there could be a problem.
      In my current park site I uncovered a Romex electrical line (not in a protective conduit) -- sample photo below.  It was only about 6 inches deep and my detector was picking up the copper wires inside.  Fortunately it turned out to be inactive although I don't think I broke through the insulation.  I just covered it back up and made a mental note since its signal could be picked up elsewhere along the line.

      Another, possibly bigger issue is what to say if someone approaches and asks (or tells...) you of their concern, whether that is for my safety or just of the utility line itself.  Of course they are supposed to be much deeper than I dig, but that assumes whoever buried it was knowledgeable and responsible.  For example, in front of my house along the public sidewalk there is a TV cable (merely electrically insulated) which has been pushed to the surface by a tree root.  I'm sure it wasn't buried more than a few inches originally.  Every time I mow I wonder if I'm going to cut it.
      I'd like to read about your experiences with this issue.

      I found this strange copper ring near a sand play pit in a park. The writing looks medieval. It is one word repeated inside and out of the ring and is gibberish to me. I wonder if it has a mystical meaning. The ring extention has been done very crudely and certainly not by a jeweller. Can anybody help with suggestions? Thanks!

      Hello everyone, I am a treasure hunter from the Loess Plateau in northern China. I am very happy to come here to meet you. With my current simple experience, I cannot determine the use of a machine suitable for our local soil. I would like to ask all the experts to consult.  The pure loess plateau here is less mineralized, the soil layer is pure, and there are very few rocks. I am currently optimistic about the machines, Whites Spectra v3i, AKA SiGNUM MFD, mostly Xp35 and Minelab. I want to buy a deep  A good machine is mainly looking for silver coins and copper coins. I hope you can give excellent suggestions. In addition, I want to know if the depth of the Whites TDI SL pulse machine can exceed V3I and Aka. Please give excellent suggestions from friends who have used it.  I will be grateful for this, thank you all!

      Hey All,  Iv been trying to locate a Refiner here in the USA that can process a small batch of placer gold (2oz) and fabricate some 18/22k jewelry stock.     I am an amateur jeweler and have tried many times to smelt my hard earned gold into some usable material and have not had any luck thus far.     So, I know I can send it off to a refiner and get generic stock back but the point is to use my own gold for some special pieces.      I know someone else out there has gone down this road before, and i would so appreciate a lead on  a reputable refiner/fabricator.

      Hi - I have  a mint Coinmaster 1 TRDX machine that I got at a yard sale. It has all of the components and fired right up with fresh batteries. I was just tying to find out when it is from exactly but can't seem to find it online. It has a Date of GG. It's a fun machine to use as it brings back old memories as a kid in the 1970's out finding stuff with a similar machine my buddy had. 
      Thank you in advance for your time, Dino
