  1. I found out to late myself, I would have made the trip up just to say hi....again.
  2. Speedy recovery Joe, hypothermia is nothing to play around with.... Cliff
  3. Hmm, about 30 machines out there, 3 or 4 reported broken (lower shaft) and a redesigned replacement is available.... I'm betting Fisher has all of our addresses on file..... Cliff
  4. Just checked mine and found it functional but sounded/felt a bit gritty inside. After a few times cycling it back and forth, it sounds better and feels better. Cliff
  5. I haven't tried adjusting my shaft but will say the spring button is rusting. Yes I do rinse off after every hunt. Kind of the norm for spring buttons Cliff
  6. Joe, as Dew stated, I am now using the TE's on the AQ. The stock phones I needed full volume and had the threshold up around 7, now I can run the volume where ever I want (normally 5-6) and the threshold can be lowered (for my hearing) to 4-5. I'd rather have some adjustment to make rather then run wide open as with the stock phones that came with my AQ.... I didn't however open the cups up to see if I have the dual piezos or not... I agree the TE's have a very clean audio which has helped me determine what I think is under the coil....I'm still digging the targets to verify my hunches.
  7. Coil cover a special order ? Got my machine about 2 weeks ago and didn't get one. Cliff
  8. " Set knobs to presets except volume (full); threshold was at 4 and hunted all metal. A thanks again to Clive, the edges are easier to hear than previous hunt, but I don't think I'm anywhere near as tuned in yet as I got with the HHPulse." Glad to see you are tuning yourself in on the sounds of the AQ. I'm back out there today (water conditions permitting) along with Dewcon with hopes of checking live targets to compare with the MDT. I spent so much time out there yesterday putzing with the knobs I can't realistically say what settings I was on so today is a concerted effort to "lea
  9. Almost to the minute Joe. Dont think I want one to last longer.
  10. I have to qualify that title, 90% of the bottle caps were found in the dry sand along with one plated ring. This is not a dry sand coin shooting machine...but I knew that going into it. Lots to learn yet on the machine, wanted to do some testing against the MDT today but unfortunately, the battery died prior to us testing. Most of the water hunting was done in All Metal, 10,5us due to choppy water, sensitivity was just under 4. Gold ring #2 for the AQ 10k, 2.15 grams with CZ's. No doubt in my mind that any other water machine would have got this one IF you got your coil over it.
  11. Good report, it appears you were near a machine shop.....lathe scraps? I'll be interested in hearing what threshold you end up with on a windy day, i too have the volume maxed out but with wind, needed the thresbold near 6 to hear. I've got tinnitus in both ears so am already hearing a constant threshold in my head.... Cliff
  12. WTG, another nice old class ring. To bad the silver gets eaten up so bad, you'd have a heck of a collection of silver coins. Cliff
