  1. i just found the entire shaft pieces for 65. plus a ridiculous shipping charge of 31.00 is that about what I would expect to pay or should I keep looking? Thanks
  2. sorry to keep bothering you SpyderByte but so far I see a S Xterra shaft for 52.95. Then I would need a lower shaft and the part the sticks out the back with the armrest, right? I don't see those on fleabay. Or were you able to use the Nox parts? Thanks
  3. so with all these mods.... does the Nox swing much better? I'd love to do one too but I sure don't want to do all of this and find out it's no better or even worse. thanks y'all.
  4. Here is a short video of me in Colchester where I found a 1363 hammered Gold Quarter Noble coin from King Edward The III reign. The people that Steve and I booked with are a great bunch and know their stuff. If you can ever make that trip it is well worth it.
  5. the 4 pound weight still bothers me. It's just too heavy for me. If not for that i would definitely check one out just for the ability of the concentric coil.
  6. Cal_Cobra: I know that you really like the Multi-Kruzer. Looking at this new one do you think it might be better for relic hunting? I hope that you get one to let us know. I have read some of your posts on the MMK and it sure has me wondering as I use the Deus for relic and love it but if the MMK or this one is better I might have to give one of them a try. I thought of getting the MMK but I now have to wait to see if the new one is better. Thanks
  7. now that I have had the 11 inch X35 for a month or so I have to say that it is the best coil so far from XP. I can run it at TX3 way more often that I ever could with the 11 LF. Much more quiet and stable. My finds have been fantastic. I have both the 9 HF and the elliptical and this 11 xx35 fits in so much better especially since we have access to 4, 8 and 12Khz that we don't have with the HF coils. I especially like it in heavy iron as that is what I mostly detect. I have had to switch from full tones and disc or 8 to either pitch or full tones but with zero disc. hearing all the iron is very hard on the brain but once you know to go S L O W and listen carefully things start popping out of the ground that disc was masking. I have used this same settings with the elliptical but (for me) is seem to do better with the 11 x35. I am finding that pitch is better than full tones but it is another learning curve so I have switched back and forth for a while but pitch wins out there too.
  8. has anyone figured out how to convert those las files to DEM files? and then can they be overlayed on Google Earth? or how to do that part? There must be quite a few cellar holes that were never surveyed that can be found with this LIDAR Yum..
  9. all i can say is WOW and congrats. those finds go a long way of paying for your machine.
  10. that's a whole lot of circuitry in there. imagine what it takes to figure all that out. i'm glad i just use it. and i thank those that do all of that for us.
  11. nice going. you'll get better with it too. keep up the good work.
  12. far out dude!!! big congrats on the breast plate. happy for ya.
  13. Pretty darn slick dude. I like the arm cuff thing, it looks like it will be easier than the strap. Where did you get the carbon fiber material?
  14. Chase. a week is a long time for my memory. lol when my buddy yells over to ask what the TID was of my last dig and i have forgotten it aleady. this is why it takes me so long to learn different machines. lol short term memory or lack there of. my grand kids say I can hide my own Easter eggs. no wonder why i have cheat sheets in my pocket. but when i finally learn something i REALLY know it.
  15. roger that. i just couldn't seem to get that figured out. thanks
  16. so what settings have started using for relic hunting? thanks
  17. i used Dirt Fishing Biil S. program on P1 and like it a lot. I want to do the same to P2 but can't figure out how to convert P2 default 50 tone to 5 tone. In P1 it was already 5 tone so i only had change things around. in P2 i can't seem to find out how to change the 50 tone to 5 tone. I just can't deal with 50 tones trying to learn this machine. thanks in advance.
  18. The manual shows how to do auto ground balance. do we have to do an auto ground balance before we put it in tracking ground balance or can we just do a noise cancel and then put it in tracking GB?
  19. TID of Equinox stock programs. Mild mineralization, Noise cancelled and ground balanced between each program. Park 1 Park 2 Field 1 Field 2 Beach 1 Beaach 2 Sterling Ring 21 31 20 31 31 31 Indian Head 1872 19 15 18 20 19 20 Buffalo Nickle 13 12 13 12 13 13 Mercury Dime 25 25 24 25 24 23 Silver Washington Quarter 33 31 31 Large Cent 28 30 28 29 28 28 I couldn't get a reading on the Washington quarter at first. It drove me nuts as to why i could hear a dime but not a quarter. So I dug it up and there was a rusty bottle cap on top of it. I will rescan the quarter asap as i left the coins still buried in the yard. Things didn't line up quite correctly here.
  20. I buried Sterling ring, Indian Head Cent, Buff nickle , Merc, Silver Washington and Large cent at 5 inches. Mild mineralization. Stock programs. Noise cancelled and ground balanced between each program. Indian Head 1872 : P1=19 P2=15 F1=18 F2=20 B1=19 B2=20 as seen here the biggest difference was between Park 1 and Park 2. I can post the entire list if we think it helps.
  21. i have thought about moving the control box froward too. we don't have much room tho. then i wondered if we can get an aftermarket carbon fiber shaft that we could move the control box forward to get a better balance. I hoped we could get the balance without adding weight but i'm not sure that's possible. If anyone knows of after market shafts let us/me know.
  22. i'd like more info on the shaft if you would be so kind. what kind? where ? cost? i think i want to do that too so that maybe i can get a better balance so it's not so nose heavy.
  23. will you post the updated cheat sheet or us too? i know i'll need it as i am blessed with great forgetfullness.
