  1. Didn't find much. A few dollars, a junk ring, wine bottle opener and, what I think, a nose ring. I was surprised to find such a small thin item with the 15" coil. Or should I not be surprised that the big coil found the nose ring even though it is so small? Big coil, small coil no difference in hitting the small items? It was certainly hard to pin point. Here is a pic with a dime for comparison. The nose ring has tested as silver.

    New Equinox Coil

    17" x 11"??? I've heard only 15" x 13". What gives??
  3. Hi All- A friend of mine found a set of Military dog tags today and he was wondering how to get them back to the owner. The internet says, 'send them to the Secretary of Defense'. He would like to get them back to the owner personally. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Way to go Andy!!! I'll be in England next week hoping to find similar items!

    Eqx 800: 5 Tones To 3

    Is there a place to see how this is done, 3 tones from 5 tones? I've tried it and I think I may have it, but when I go through the tone cycle, it still shows T4 and T5. Although T4 and T5 are at the same volume setting of T3, they still show up on the on the tone cycle. Is this how 3 tones are made from 5 tones?
  7. I've used this unit maybe seven or eight times. Works perfectly. Comes with what you see in the pics plus the charger and re-chargerable batteries and the handbook. The first large DD coil cover broke so I've included a new one and the coil cover for the eight inch round cover was solid so I cut out the center area for easier use, for me, in the water. The large DD coil has some scratches on the bottom due to the one time I forgot to put the coil cover on after cleaning and went hunting. $1800.00 includes shipping in CONUS. No trades please.
  8. Thanks for the replies. It is starting to seep into my brain that looking for gold in So. Cal. parks, most parks anyway, is not a worthwhile endeavor with the Nox usually. Especially if you have to reject so many numbers to keep the machine from sounding like a machine gun. Coin hunting will be it's prevailing task in those types of parks. The beach on the other hand is a different animal altogether.
  9. Thanks Steve, that's the realization I'm coming too. One or the other usually.
  10. I put a post about the Nox and trashy parks about three or four weeks ago asking if the Nox was a good choice because of all the trash noise. It seems to me by the replies to the post that the Nox WAS a good trashy park machine because of it's ability to separate signals and it's fast recovery speed. To reduce the "machine gun" noise, it was advised to reject -9 to 22. But by doing so, you will be missing a big part of the gold range. I tested 15 gold rings that I found in parks with my CTX program against the Nox program suggested in the replies to my original post. The results were disappointing in that the Nox couldn't sound off on any of the rings except one. A large 18K yellow gold, 10.8 gram ring that rang in at 23 (penny signal). The rest of the rings were comprised of what someone might call women's size rings. Size five to seven mostly, 10 or 14K white or yellow gold. Some with diamonds and some without. So, by this un-scientific test, does this tell me that the Nox is basically a coin machine, in a trashy park setting, unless you want to hear a bunch of noise and try to pick out the non-coin good targets? I really like the machine at the beach. It's the first one I grab when I go to the beach. But, for the So. Cal. parks and all the trash that the people leave behind, I'm still having trouble with the cacophony of noise. So much so that I know I'm missing some targets. Any advice and I'm ALL EARS! Thanks in advance for all the help with this matter.
  11. I have a Garrett carrot and I have noticed in some videos that people using them turn them on while touching the turf or sand before using them to find their target. I know why this is done, but is it really necessary? I was wondering how many of you, on this forum, do this?

    Easy Find!

    Good One, Alluminati!
  13. Did a little bit of detecting today and found this...can anybody tell me what this, I think it's a coin, is? What country it may be from? What year? Thanks in advance for any help identifying this object.

    Which End Is Waterproof? Both?

    The reason I take the lower shaft off after each beach hunt is because the Anderson shaft, compared to the Minelab shaft, has a smaller tolerance between the OD of the lower shaft and the ID of the upper shaft. Or so it seems to me. If I don't remove the lower shaft and clean it out, then after two or three beach hunts, it's a bear to take apart. I will just have to be careful when cleaning the unit to keep water away from the connectors. Thanks everyone for all the replies.

    Which End Is Waterproof? Both?

    Northeast...When I rinse my unit off, I take it apart pretty much all the way. I don't take the handle/controller or the arm cuff off, but all the rest I do. The sand is so intrusive that if I don't clean it well it gets to be to hard to dis-assemble. I have my Nox on an Anderson carbon fiber shaft.
