  1. I have been 3D printing for the last 4 or 5 yrs and have printer many parts for my "home built" PI's. Most of these designs are modifications from Carl's GeoTech Forum or other schematics floating around the Internet, some good most bad, One place anyone can download an STL file is here; https://www.thingiverse.com/search?q=metal+detector&type=things&sort=relevant another source is Github where some have uploaded PI detector designs and STL files to go with the design. My 3d unit
  2. That's what happened in their "Black Hills" of South Dakota in 1874. By 1875, over 2000 miners had moved in the Sioux Reservation promised to them by the Great Father in the White house. That my friends, is a fact of life and I agree 100% with Hard Prospector
  3. As a rule, I never go out into the wilderness empty handed. I usually carry my Colt single action 44-40 in a shoulder holster. Five years ago, I had a near fatal encounter with a bear and her cubs. I was caught by surprise but fortunately for both of us, I was able to back away without an incident.
  4. I'm very sad to see them stop operations. My first real detector was also a White Coin Master back in 1975. I just bought a TDI SL two weeks ago with the intention of doing some modifications. I got tired of building PI's so I figured I needed something to start with. Hope they can come back some day and hire some real talent moving forward.
