But not looking forward to the last 2.
A Man's Age - as Determined by a Trip to Bunning's (Bunning's is an Aus. large retail hardware outlet.)
You are in the middle of some kind of project around the house --.
Mowing the lawn, putting in a new fence, painting the living room or
You are hot and sweaty, covered in dust, lawn clippings, dirt or paint.
You have your old work clothes on.
You know the outfit -- shorts with the hole in the crotch, old T-shirt with
a stain from
who-knows-what and an old pair of tennis shoes.
Right in the middle of this great home improvement project you realise you
need to run to Bunnings to get something to help complete the job.
Depending on your age you might do the following:
In your 20's:
Stop what you are doing. Shave, take a shower, blow dry your hair, brush
your teeth, floss and put on clean clothes.
Check yourself in the mirror and flex.
Add a dab of your favourite cologne because you never know, you just might
meet some hot chick while standing in the checkout lane. And you went to
school with the pretty girl running the register.
In your 30's:
Stop what you are doing, put on clean shorts and shirt. Change shoes.
You married the hot chick so no need for much else. Wash your hands and comb
Check yourself in the mirror. Still got it. Add a shot of your favourite
cologne to cover the smell.
The cute girl running the register is the kid sister to someone you went to
In your 40's:
Stop what you are doing. Put on a teeshirt that is long enough to cover
the hole in the crotch of your shorts.
Put on different shoes and a hat. Wash your hands.
Your bottle of Brut Cologne is almost empty so you don't want to waste any
of it on a trip to Bunnings
Check yourself in the mirror and do more sucking in than flexing.
The hot young thing running the register is your daughter's age and you feel
weird thinking she is spicy.
In your 50's:
Stop what you are doing. Put on a hat; wipe the dirt off your hands onto
Change shoes because you don't want to get dog c**p in your new sports car.
Check yourself in the mirror and you swear not to wear that shirt anymore
because it makes you look fat.
The Cutie running the register smiles when she sees you coming and you think
you still have it.
Then you remember the hat you have on is from Gunmart's Bait Bar
and it says, 'I Got Worms.'
In your 60's:
Stop what you are doing. No need for a hat anymore.
Hose the dog c**p off your shoes. The mirror was shattered when you were in
You hope you have underwear on so nothing hangs out the hole in your pants.
The girl running the register may be cute, but you don't have your glasses
on so you are not sure.
In your 70's:
Stop what you are doing. Wait to go to Bunnings until the Chemist has your
prescriptions ready, too.
Don't even notice the dog c**p on your shoes.
The young thing at the register stares at you and you realise your balls are
hanging out the hole in your crotch.
In your 80's:
Stop what you are doing. Start again. Then stop again.
Now you remember you need to go to Bunnings. Go to K-Mart instead and wander
around trying to think what it is you are looking for.
Fart out loud and you think someone called out your name.
You went to school with the old lady who greeted you at the front door.
In your 90's & beyond:
What's a bundings ? Something for my garden?
Where am I ? Who am I ? Why am I reading this ?
Did I post it ? Did you? Who farted ?
I have sent an e-mail to Felix at FT with these pictures. Hopefully they just send me a new rod ASAP. This is what happens when you hunt wet sand and California surf. Or it could just have been a poor quality made rod. Hoping for that latter as the wet sand California surf is the only place I have to use the Impulse AQ and don't want to have to worry about this again.
I have an EQ600 with a full set of coils. I was at Laguna yesterday with the large coil. I am using bluetooth earbuds that have been recommended by others. There was a lot of black sand where I was hunting. I was having the detect audio stutter like it was overloading bluetooth or the headset although I played with the detector audio and couldn’t reduce the stutter. There also seemed to be indications of a bad coil connection at the coil. Wiggle it a bit and you hear a crackle. Never got a full disconnect though. I later ran all metal and maybe the stutter was less not sure. In disc I was stock settings masking zero and below. But that should be a nice audio cancel - should hear good targets without them being chopped up. I found stuff but it was a miserable detecting experience. I played with recovery speed and went between beach 1 and 2 modes. Tried messing with ground balance types too. I found that if I was in black sand areas pinpoint would help me locate possible targets and I’d just dig them without much clue from Lcd ID or tone (running 50 tones). I didn’t have the other coils with me to test. I tried sensitivity 17 on up. Normally was 22/23. I was experiencing bad latency with the earbuds that I don’t remember being an issue with the 11” coil. Just a real test of my brain the whole day.
Does anyone know specifically what goes wrong with the Garrett AT pin pointers? Both of mine were sent in previously, and both of them developed the same issue again. They turn on but do not detect any metal. Is it the electrolytic capacitor, the flat pack The IC or is it in the coil itself that is the problem? Is that long rod a radio frequency coil? I'm kinda getting tired of pin pointers dying like that. Any ideas would be helpful.
Hello, I had a problem with my metal detector, I was using it in the water, after several months it does not turn on and shows the message "CD" on the screen and then you can see the water inside ..
the guarantee I change it for another without problems a fast process
I have read, that water enters through the union of the handle to the pda (subjecting screws to the mast), according to what they say, this problem only happens to those made in Malaysia ... those made in Australia do not have that problem, the first series they come out perfect
does anyone know about this topic?
How do I know where my detector was manufactured?
I can attach photos of the box (where the manufacture comes) and compare with other users..thanks
my detector is equinox 800 February 2020
