Tarsacci Pulls Another Indian Out Of The Old Homstead


Recommended Posts


Nice IH! Looks like you're getting the same stuff I do. 🙂 Shotgun shells and lamp parts. Still worth posting an IHP.

Nice coin with odd marks. It makes you wonder why.

On the Tarsacci, I have found that the nail falses will break up/disappear as you rotate around the target in Disc. I have also found Disc 29/30 to be helpful in heavier nails. You can still tell the bigger Iron though to dig it if you want to get it out of the way.

DD coils typically will give different responses to objects like nails when they are flat and coil is swung in different directions. Monty's nail board test is a good example on that and how targets separate. Smaller dd coils do bit better than larger in those cases and concentrics do even better but unfortunately many manufacturers walked away from concentrics.

      I finally had a chance to get out with the MDT 8000 again this afternoon. I hunted a different area that is not so heavily iron littered. This was my first chance to run Mixed mode for any length of time. It is much more dynamic & telling than straight Disc mode. I was able to call the big iron & small trash just fine. Dug some nice period targets including an unusual Flat button in very good condition. It is classed as a Patriotic/Political button in Albert's book; PC106A. A pretty neat find for around here.
      Still learning the MDT & playing with Ground balance & Salt balance. Today was 12kHz,  Sens 6-7, TH -3, Disc +30. Not clean ground by any means but only 1-2 nails per sweep instead of a half dozen. This is sticky Red clay with plenty of natural Iron oxide, GB in the high 800's to mid 900's.

      Again the tarsacci finds the deep brass today in a colonial site. Love the machine.  Old stuff including a thimble at about 15 inches down.  Having an issue with the pinpoint button sticking though. Anyone else have this issue??

      I am in a spot i have gone over at least 5 times with the ORX, and the ground went silent. Dont think I dont like the ORX, when i go to the park and sports field you cant beat it .But like i say when i got to the site today I took some advice from a guy who said put the Disc at between 27-and 30  so i set it at 29 and i just was amazed that the ground just lit up . things at 9 inches no problem good signals and deeper . my settings used are .  6.4 khz in mix mode, gain of 7 and 0 threshold, black sand mode on and salt balance at 43,  and this machine just starts devouring the ground ,  I spent my stimulus money on it and dont regret doing so as its made in U,S,A and it went to help an American citizen.   the thing with holes in it was 18 inches deep and i left more in the hole. i was tired of digging deep holes for the day . and i forgot to say i was not digging as many nail false s. so what that guy said must be working

      What settings does everyone else use under the big electrical wires.  The tarsacci wasn’t bad with interference as the deus was in the same area.  But I put the black sand on to get it to quiet down some. Would I be missing targets with these settings?
