Not Killing It....... Just Keep Finding.....

Recommended Posts

Just keep finding clad.

Charged up the Blisstool V5 last night for a morning hunt before the heat set in with a blazing hot sun starts baking me.
Since most areas are pretty dry, not wanting to ruin any grass areas. Went back to a well hit spot where the ground would just damp enough
to make for some easy digging and the ground would not dry out. The place is a good choice because the sprinkler system keeps the grass nice and green.

This morning.
True to form, the sprinklers came on, the grass at my spot was still wet. The rising sun and warming heat soon dried the grass. Made for a clean hunt.
Ground balanced the V5 to perfection. Ran smooth with a nice stable threshold all morning. Used the 7x9 search coil again, which is just going to stay on this detector.

Since I haven't used the V5 in several weeks, as I was testing out the new Simplex coils, it did take about 1 hour to get back in the swing of things. So a lot of trash was dug,
just to get a feel of the audio responses between trash and good trash ( Canadian clad coins). Made for some good education today.

There are a couple things I can say about the V5, it loves deeper Canadian clad coins. Pretty much already cleaned the place of surface to 5" deep coins. Finding there sure is a lot more at the
6-8" range than I thought. The V5 just sees them loud and clear, quite surprised how many are dug at the 7" range. Noted all those pesky dimes came from that depth. The only coin that came from a shallow depth of 4" was the Toonie. It sounded like a large surface target. Have to remember that for next time.

Hunted from 6:30am to 11:15am, at that point it was too hot to continue, packed it in and drove home, guzzling a bottle of warm water. Yeah it heated up a bit in the cars trunk.
This was only my second hunt, the more I use the V5, the more I like it.

How much of a difference is there between v5 and v6? I have seen v5's on ebay but never a v6.

Think there is only a few V6's that made it over.

From the Blisstool website:

LTC64X v6 is better than v5, with that this LTC64X v6 is:
   - with improved work at highly mineralized terrains, terrains with a high content of ore, beach search (on the coast, moist soil, dry sand, wet sand, mineralized sands);
   - with mode ORE, optimized for work at highly mineralized terrains, terrains with a high content of ore, terrains dotted with hot rocks and stones, highly contaminated with iron terrains, beach search in highly mineralized sands;
   - with mode SOIL, optimized for work at low and medium mineralized terrains, terrains dotted with stones and rocks, beach search in low and medium mineralized sands;
   - with higher detection speed and higher recovery speed in mode ORE;
   - with improved depth of detection and improved comfort when working on any type of terrain;
   - with automatic stabilizer with a very high degree of stabilization.

Supposedly you can order direct but got a feeling customs will be an issue. Also warranty/service if needed.

Sounds like v6 would work well around here where old properties had dumped their coal ash. We do have tons of iron in many places here.

Unfortunately, not sure Blisstool is even building any more detectors. So warranty issues could be a problem, don't know. They are keeping the UK forum website, and company website  online as a courtesy as they are chock full of good info. 

The Blisstool owner a number of years back went down another path, more lucrative one than detectors. Was kind of curious what Ahmed Merchev the owner  was doing these days. https://alienohypercars.com/

Ahmed Merchev founded ALIENO in 2015 at the age of 31, with a mission to create hypercars with alien technologies from the future into the present.

To this end, he develops the basic technologies of the ALIENO hypercars and provides the initial funding for their creation, investing in ALIENO his own money that he has made in his other successful businesses in the field of robotics and electronics.

Ahmed Merchev discovered in his early childhood his passion for electronics, robotics, cybernetics, design and automobiles. At that time, he mastered the basics of electronics on his own and designed his first devices. Subsequently, developing professionally in these fields, he made his first inventions ranging from hobby metal detectors to full-size humanoid robots.

I'm glad you are getting out and have places to hunt and enjoy metal detecting. Any finds are good at this point.

Rock on!

And then he bailed on us along with the USA dealer.

Sad but, very true.

      Small skating pond has dried up a bit, enough to walk around in and detect. I'm amazed how much trash was in it but was able to poke around with my Gold Racer. Wish it had a bigger coil but love using it for coin and relic hunting.
      Pic of the pond, usually always has water in it and the lilly pads and arrow weed are still green on the edges. Bottom was dry enough to walk on. Ground had cracks and voids in the mud that gave some negative signals at times. Gravel and stones are few inches down but thinking there is stuff out of range of coil i was using.
      Brass candle stick base (rest was missing), small brass pin with a floral pattern on it that had a bit of silver plating on it and bit of clad. The 1948 p Rosie was from another section of the woods.
      Will hit that again with one of my other machines and bring more than just my hand digger.

      $36.40.. plus 1 x 'old' 2 cent and 4 x 'old' 1 cents.. also an Euro and a NZ $1.. but best of all, there was a photographer shooting 5 topless girls in the early morning light (i thought i'd be the only one there, so did they).. needless to say i dropped the detector straight away and watched the show for a while.. i didn't take any photos of the girls but when i got back i did get one of the coins (sorry about that)..

      Had a little time for a property tour and short initial water hunt at a new permission this afternoon...the place holds promise!  It's an old cabin/vacation spot that dates back to the early 1900s. I happened across the owner at the public access last week, and he offered free reign to detect it anytime. After running thru the water a bit, I realized it has likely not been detected in the past...or not detected very thoroughly. Dug a few nickels, including the no date buffalo...and numerous old pull tabs and ring tabs. The ring turned out to be just gold plate, but I believe it has some age to it.  The other pic is of the lower jaw from a northern pike...was an interesting item to see in the scoop! I still can't believe I stumbled across a site like this these days...will definitely be many future trips back to this place. The owner is super cool and friendly. Hope y'all got out today as well...beautiful, cooler weather today and tomorrow here in MN.

      So my question to all is what is the largest item you have ever dared to dig. Mine was a 11 1/2'' bronze sun dial. I thought at first I found the worlds largest coin!!! Well it was a vintage 1980's sun dial. I got a good laugh and put a scratch on it, cause the target was so large. At 5'' pin pointing went out the window. (I still have it) I would love to hear your stories and photo's alike. Please don't be afraid to embarrass yourselves!!! We all had a what the hell am I thinking moment.

      Hit the park at 5:30am and finished up at 9:00am. I think I hurt myself!!! Anyone who thinks the MK is lacking is goofy!! Decided to run the knock sensitive/off center 11'' to make sure the problem wasn't me. The grass was wet and oddly the coils knock sens. was reduced. Still had the same huge centering problem. (Still waiting on the new coil to arrive), But that being said, Man did I find the coins. Most were at the 6'' to 8'' depth. Coin to trash was 0 until the old english cap and a pull tab (couldn't help myself). 
      Any How, this is how it worked out, Hand cramps included!!!! Ha Ha Ha
      15 Quarters    4 Nickles    29 Dimes    9 Pennies    6 Hand cramps

      After another long hot week and some things that are weighing heavy on my heart. I decided to hunt a little woodlot and creek to take my mind off the grind of life. I walked about 1000 yds down the creek with little luck until I found a odd item that looks like an umbrella handle. A short distance later I retrieved a very very small tea cup (cool). After striking out on the water, I thought that I might have better luck on terrafirma. Shotgun cases woo hoo!!! I then decided to hunt near a giant of an oak tree, every bit of 40'' through. Hoping for something good, I got a good deep hit. At around 11'' out popped a very large musket ball that measures .690 to .695. Thinking from a british brown bess. Spent another hour farting around and tripped up on a 97 number that kept bouncing down to the high 70's. Normally this would be coal, but the tone did not have the crackle that coal usually has. Woo Hoo out popped a 45 mercury dime. My second 45 in a very short time. Turns out that there were very small fragments of coal around the merc. The dime is cool, but I love Rev. War musket balls!!!! I ended my day with a 22 casing and a 22 bullet. Another good day with the MK!!!  Time to have a beer and cool off!!!
