Want To See What A Sheet Of Aluminum Foil Does To The Tarsacci


Recommended Posts

Yeah concentric on a VLF might be your best bet for that test.BUT its still not going to do what the Tarsacci can do..

There's alot of great Detectors on the market for sure..

BUT the Tarsacci doing things that till now were just not doable.Things have really moved forward.

Good test!

True .The change was  not that  much.

Yes but could tell a chage!

The main thing about the Tarsacci is it punches mineral.

The other stuff like the sheet of foil and iron unmasking etc is sort of a by product of this technology it so seems.

Its fun to see what it can do messing around with it testing stuff..That can be a hobby in itself if your not carefull.LOL!!

In the low end  things happen like more purity of metal than actual conductance.Like small lead pistol balls will read the same deep or on surface.The salinity seems to really have control of items that can hit close to its dial range.

Nails are another item you can get to be  a little weird to help in unmasking.You cant remove them just like you cant remove that sheet foil with salinity but you can make them sort of less reactive in a way.But its all by products of being able to punch bad soil i feel.

I tried the test with my Nox and all it saw was the foil as you've pointed out Keith.  

I then tried it with my Sovereign, which has a meter on it, and the foil rang up 350, the quarter 550 and foil over quarter 510.  

Thought that was interesting.

I tried the test with the TDI  SL and same size foil could not disc it out even at full pulse delay. and the ORX even in 99disc could not go silient . I would have to say what that Tarsacci can do is somthing new to detecting as far as my experiance

The TDI can’t run a low enough pulse delay... it was designed to find low conductors. The thickness of the foil also matters a lot of course... not all aluminum coils are equal.

      How many of MDT users like the tones of disc mode?   I don’t like it. It sounds like a toy.   Mixed mode is what I use.

      The MDT 8000 has an IP68 rating - up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. I’d call that more a wading detector than a mask & snorkel detector. On the other hand, I’d bet the MDT is at least as waterproof as an Equinox, if not more so.  I don’t think any of these so-called 10 foot detectors have a genuine waterproof rating exceeding IP68, simply based on the coil and headphone connectors being employed
      The question being, how deep for how long? Who, if anyone, has had the MDT submerged for more than a few hours? I’d assume that simply wading using the supplied headphones, with controls submerged nor more than a foot or two, would be good almost indefinitely? Though technically that’s not what the rating says. Up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.
      Anyone doing fully submersible? I just missed on a used set of Tony Eisenhower phones for the MDT, so I know that they at least are being made for the MDT. Is anyone else making underwater phones for the unit? I’ve got a set of Minelab yellow Koss I’ve considered converting, but need to prove I’d actually be sticking my head in the water more than I’m doing now before I’d go that route.
      The machine appears tight enough. The only thing I’d wish for off hand is that Dimitar double the number of threads on the battery cap. They seem sufficient, but just barely, and a few more turns would add some psychological safety at least.

      Here’s a little test I inadvertently stumbled upon....
      Thanks!
