Sometimes, Little Things Can Totally Brighten Your Day!

Recommended Posts

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...!

I love the larger coil. Feels fairly lightweight. Good luck with it!

Happy dancing is what one would expect from an elf...

I said I would not but I might have to get a big coil...

good luck

Fred since I have put on the big coil, I have not even thought about taking it off. It works.

I might go back to the stock coil if I was gold detecting, but for everything else, the 15" coil is excellent.

fwiw...

thanks, Flak

your opinion could make me a buyer rather than a thinker.

Flakmagnet is right, the big coil has barely left my Nox since I got it other than when I go prospecting although it's not too shabby on small gold either, not too far behind the 11" which again isn't too far behind the 6"

For nostalgia's sake I put the 11" back on my Nox yesterday and went for a walk to the river behind my house before the heat of the day kicked in with some morning fog and went for a hunt in an area where finds are very few and far between, a very unpopulated area along the riverside and pulled up a very old NZ penny, it's in too bad condition to make out it's date but I was very surprised to find a coin here as so rarely do people go here that the chances of losing one are so slim.  I can only guess it was a fly fisherman lost it long before I was born.

I am certain you'll love your coil and hope my pictures inspire you go out and get some great finds with it to break it in ?

      After a bit of a drought of finding cool coins with the Equinox, I found another V nickel detecting in the neighbors parking strip in between thunderstorms.  It was pretty worn and pitted, and not of any numismatic value, so I cleaned it up a bit.

      I find myself waiting again for something new they call Apex .
       I had been thinking about buying the Vanquish 540 pro pack but about the time I was going to pull the trigger on it another toy pops up. The trouble is I can’t have it today and not even tomorrow. Just like always I find myself in line waiting on something or someone.
       Well I’m not standing in line for nothing anymore.
       I’ve had a Nox 800 but sold it and I’m still kicking my butt for doing that . I had a detector that out shined all others and like said stupid sold it.
       Enough is enough so I called Rob and ordered a Nox 800 , 6” coil with a extra lower shaft and a MI 6 XP Pinpointer for my ORX .
       I ordered this just this past Monday and by 6 the next morning the check was in the mail. 
      I wish all of you the best that’s waiting on the Apex. Just mark me off that waiting list . Chuck

      I was hunting at the beach yesterday and did my usual "dial it in" routine...adjusting F2, Recovery and Sensitivity using my test sticks to optimize my EQX 800 performance for that particular beach.

      As I hunted, I got a strong tone of a high conductor and started to dig and dig and dig. I couldn't see or find the target but I knew it was still there...somewhere...the EQX said it was!

      I finally narrowed it down to a certain pile of sand from the ever growing hole. Still couldn't see it but it was there among the brown sand...somewhere. Finally resorted to my Pro-Find 35 pinpointer. It rang up nicely but I still couldn't see this high conductor! I started to test small hand fulls at a time and finally...finally I saw a minuscule piece of wire on the edge of my hand. Could this be what all the fuss was about? YES. I measured the depth of the hole with the Pro- Find 35 and saw that it was approximately 8 inches!

      I brought the wire home specifically to post this story about the importance of adjusting your detector to meet the conditions. When we change beaches, I "dialed in" my EQX again for that new beach and had to change the settings from that first beach where my EQX sniffed out that piece of wire. Conditions change and so must your settings....one size DOES NOT FIT ALL.

      Wanted to see who was using the Equinox for prospecting and if you are, woudl you be willing to share settings and some find photos for the new Equinox Handbook that is getting ready to ship to the printer . . . will send a copy of the book when they come in if we can use them in the book.

      Definitely copper, and in pretty good shape.  About 5 inches down, showed strong 24 -26 in all sweep directions. Nox 800.  Pretty stoked!

      Hey all,
           So I just figured out that there was an F2 setting, I've been running the machine in FE. I'm in Northern California, with Moderate, to extreme soil conditions. My question is, does F2 perform better then FE, especially when hunting for coins in trash infested areas? I watched a few videos, but had a hard time coming to a conclusion. Any input on these settings would be greatly appreciated!
