Another Ring For The Collection With The Nox 12x15 Coil

Recommended Posts


Nice bit of hunting!  I love ski lifts!  Was the ring marked?  Would be odd to see real diamonds set in silver, maybe CZ's.  Hope they are real, a nice keeper.

yep, its marked silver, they probably are fake unless someone had a gold allergy 🙂

Well done Phrunt.

Where ever people are or where they have been we lose things.

I don't wear any jewelry so I'm not going to lose that but I lose parts and pieces of everything else I use!

yep, I have been known to lose things from time to time, I took my daughter to KFC last night after our metal detecting hunt for some dinner, I had a bag of stuff I'd bought at various shops as we looked around town, about $30 worth of stuff.... of course we left KFC without the bag, realized at 11pm last night I didn't have the bag then remembered where I left it 🙂

One of those days!

The Dust storm in Australia even made it to Brisbane, here is a photo my wife took leaving Brisbane heading for Canberra, the dust in Brisbane seemed pretty bad.

There might be a few more sunbakers in Central Australia now with the top layer of dust blown off them 🙂

      I got my 15" coil yesterday just in time for a planned hunt today at a fort dating back to 1851. The morning started off slow because I deviated from my plan and I kinda just wandered around for the first 3 hours without much to show for it. Around noon I finally went to spot and started gridding like I normally do and it started to pay off. The  normal stuff began to come to light, percussion caps, lead, trouser buttons and a few odds and ends. At the end off the day I scored my first ever Dragoon button and within 20 minutes or so, hit my second!! I did manage a 3rd button, but I don't have a positive ID yet. It looks to be a one piece, which I believe predates the Dragoons.
       
       My take on the coil.....
      I found that I was hitting as small of items as I have with the 11" coil at this site which was impressive!  The weight's not that bad, I kept the coil close to my feet and was able to swing it for 7 1/2 hours before switching over to the 11"  I think If I would have stopped for lunch, I could have swung it the entire time. The extra coverage was a much needed bonus at this place as it's huge and the sensitivity to small items was icing on the cake. I'll probably use the 15" coil here more often than not as it performed wonderfully.
       
      My settings....
      Park 2
      15" coil
      2-tones
      6-recovery
      0-iron bias
      0-ground balnace
      22-sensitivity
      Tone break -9 to +8
      I tried running a recovery speed of 4, but, due to amount of junk I'd hit with each swing, I bumped it up to 6 which seemed to work just fine.

      Big Brown Truck made my day yesterday.  Much earlier than expected delivery from my dealer!
      Silly how some little things can make what was a trying day turn into dancing in the living room!  😆
      Going out this afternoon to deflower the coil!
      Woohoo...!

      Between work and projects I've managed to get out on a few hunts. I bought my buddy an equinox 800 since he has been kind enough to let me run all around his ranches as if I own them myself. He has showed some interest in detecting...he thinks he's going to find a 1 pound gold nugget . After spending some time showing him how it works...I'd mark a target and then have him go over it and then dig it...he started to get the hang of it. So on our second outing he goes and finds a 1855 seated quarter (like Deathrays) but not in nearly as good condition. He was stoked and I wish i had brought my camera with me so I could get a pic of him smiling and holding the coin. 
      Been hitting some other locations near where I live. Old homesites and street tear outs. Day before yesterday was a quick but pleasant hunt. Dug the standing liberty and put it in my pocket so it would not get banged up in the pouch. I never look at items much in the field but wait till I get home. I was glad I put this coin in my pocket. I'm going to have to get it looked at just to make sure but I think it's the real deal.
      If anyone knows what the sun god thing was? kinda cool digging it and have that smiling back.
      HH to you all

      First hunt in a LONG time; I was happy that I was able to prove to myself that I haven't totally forgotten how to run the Equinox!
      Oh -- the 1916 Merc?  The mint mark -- if there was one -- was worn off...  😞   LOL!

      I know I've seen some talk about depth gauge readings on NOX 800 but I never seem to have had any problems until yesterday. Hooked up with Grizz12 and his new 800 & 11" coil for
      his 1st hunt. Took him & my 800 with 6" coil to that same stretch of Lake beach I've been hunting since last March. Figured it be a good spot for Grizz12 to start, all kinds of targets so he
      can get to see machine work. So after Grizz12 got fired up ( Park 1 ) I started looking for that ring I know has to be somewhere on beach in the low water conditions. Using Park 1 myself
      I started my hunt, I've done the update on machine, & using my 6" coil it seemed my depth gauge was way off, targets that were reading 2 to 6 inches were more like 12" or deeper, what am
      I missing ? Trying to shake the cobwebs off & get going for this season. Any ideas or thoughts ??? Grizz12 had a good couple hr.'s, found normal trash & 13 cents, I still had a good couple hr.'s
      myself finding a 1961 nickel ( Oh Yah  !!!! ) & an unreadable dime. But the depth gauge was killing me !!!! Help !!!!!!

      I got my 6 inch coil for the 800 back in July.  I was so anxious to use it I went right out to the beach rather than wait for a gold trip.  I found 3 rings that trip.
       
      Now today after having gone on a gold trip and still not having found a gold nugget with the 6 inch coil I decided to go back to the beach and leave it on.  I think this is the first time since July!  Well, at the end of my gold trip I had tried to use the 6" in gold mode to find a meteorite. (I can't hear them in any other mode.)  What I had found in my experiments was I could eliminate many of the hot rocks if I just rejected #9.  I could swing and hear a meteorite I had already found with my 7000.  What helped the sound was to make the machine quick (6, 7, 8).  I had this in mind when I went to the beach.  It started slow and as far as good targets was concerned it stayed slow but I had fun!
      I'd say the thing I learned today was that I can swing the little coil fast (zipzip), on a long shaft (next to the last hole on the handle) in all metal and still hear deep targets.  I was digging targets down to 10 inches in some little patches.  They did not start out with a good ID but I could hear them.  Some of the pennies were at 10 inches when measured by my 6" coil and my 6" basket digger.  The bucket handle was down over 10 inches.  Perhaps my most impressive 10 inch deep dig was the little hook.  It is iron (I've turned the volume up on iron a bit) but it also had a solid shape sound to it.
      It was fun swinging a stick with a little coil on it and hearing a zip zip.  Try it.
