Detecting A Train, What Detector Would You Use?

Recommended Posts

Phrunt,

You would refuse notoriety?  But why?

You could be called in for all the major projects!  You could start your own Discovery Channel show.

Watch out world ...

I think you must already have the show written.

I tend to agree with you, Mitchel..

I also agree with Rivers rat: Photo or it didn't happen.. Personally I've never been able to get any of my detectors to hit on one much past four feet, and that was only because I using my MineLab Eureka! Car in All Vehicles mode.. :rolleyes:

Simon likes to hide in the shadows. Not overly a people person. I am a bit the same. I think that is why we gell. Both of us don't do social media. Preferring to fly under the radar & not attract any attention or give ourselves away. Keeping to ourselves. We both leave the social media thing to our wifes. If I need to know anything....Mrs JW tells me. While I am not speaking for Simon I guess he is the same. :biggrin:  What I do on this forum is my only form of "social media" outlet/inlet. Most of us on here are all like minded no matter what our own individual backgrounds & carriers are/were. Youtube I use solely for my own entertainment & research. I am involved with nothing else. But I like a lot of you guys.....& gals. :biggrin: Cheers.

Good luck out there

JW :smile:

Just the huge mass of metal would trigger a detector with just a stock coil i would have though ?? at only that depth,if it was a much smaller item like say a oil drum or something like that then a GPX with a large coil or even a twin box like the Whites TM808 or the Fisher TW-5 like i use.

JW is right, I'm not a people person at all, I shy away from talking to people unless I have to.  If I found a train and went in the paper I'd have people coming up and talking to me in the street with questions, my worst nightmare.

I keep to myself mostly, JW appears to understand me well and isn't bothered by it, probably because we are both weird :laugh: Spend our lives wanting to swing noisy beeping sticks.

We've had a solid week of thunderstorms and rain so the trains thing has been put on hold as where they are is underwater at the moment.

I know someone else who is just as retiring from public scrutiny, doesn't invite accolades at all for what he does behind the scenes!

A magnetometer would be the overwhelming best choice for this project.

Interesting . . .

All the best,

      Will the Gold Bug Pro run well with a Detech 13" Ultimate coil that was made for the "greek series" detectors?

       
      Their website doesn't give a whole lot of information
      https://www.detech-metaldetectors.com/products/coils/81-13q-ultimate-dd-detech-coil.html
      I want a bigger coil for my GBP than the stock coil that came with it as a Gold Bug Pro DP and I've read good things about the ultimate, and I have a guy willing to sell me his off his Omega 8000 at a reasonable price.
      I've found the Gold Bug Pro has remarkably accurate Target ID's on coins, almost up there if not equal to my Equinox and possibly better than my T2 so I was thinking if I got a bigger coil for it perhaps my wife would use it for the odd coin shooting adventure, I think at the moment shes a bit put off by me cleaning up with my Nox and her using the T2 and not doing near as well, as she likes I know it's a coin before digging, the T2 isn't such an accurate detector on the Target ID's as the Nox but the GBP seems pretty darn good.  The T2 bounces around on the target ID's, the Nox gets a solid 21/22 almost every time.  The easier I make it for her the more she may like it and I don't want to spend the money on a Nox 600 for her right now as she'll only use it 3 or 4 times a year so I don't want a fixed lithium style battery detector for her. AA or 9V is more suited to that and I'd rather use what I've got.
      Thanks in advance for any advice.

      I have had good success with the 800 using factory settings.  Lately, the beach targets have slowed down significantly due to fewer tourists and more detectorists.  Will a slower recovery speed give more depth and increase targets?  Let me add I use beach 1, all metal, sensitivity around 22.

      I’m a newbie to the forums.  In fact, since I don’t even own a detector (yet), I guess I’m a “no”bie. A bunch of questions are bubbling around in my head as I try to get better informed about detecting.  Here’s one that is currently on my mind.  I plan to keep some records of my detecting experiences.  Initially, a lot of my focus will be recording detector settings and results so that I may better learn how to use my (future) detector (maybe a NOX 800).  The advice I’m hoping some will share, is what records do you keep and in what format.  I’ve spotted some software created for use by detectorists.  Some allows recording of GPS coordinates (perhaps more useful for gold hunters than coin shooters); detector settings; “finds” records (including uploading photos); free form notes; etc.  So what do YOU record please and how?  Software?  A notebook or diary?  As a learning tool or just to capture fun memories?  Do you search or review your past records?   OK, I’ll take a breath.  Any information and advice will be greatly appreciated, thank you!  PS - I searched the forums before posting this and found a couple of related threads but nothing very specific.  If this topic has been addressed in detail before, please point me in the right direction rather than create redundant threads.  Thanks, Bozko. (Thank you Steve for moving this post to the appropriate forum.  I realized after I posted it that it wasn’t in right spot but then wasn’t sure how or where to move it.  Newbie error.)
