  1. Couldn't agree more Jin. I am ruthless on my digs. No pussy footing about scraping fractions of an inch or millimeters at a time, wasting time. I just smash into it until I have moved the signal. Then recover it.πŸ‘ How long is life? When the pick breaks then its life is over.....& so is the guarantee.πŸ˜‚ Bet that chick in your avatar photo made your pants drop pretty quick. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Just waiting on Simon to turn up for his very first maiden voyage with his Zed & 10" X coil. This will be very interesting. We are now both on a level playing field, equipment wise, not so much a level playing field where we are going detecting. Good luck out there JW 🀠
  2. Probably a Freemasons ring. Although it would then have the Freemasons symbol on it. The builders square & compass(diffiders) https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=freemasons+symbol And the Knights Templar symbols https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&biw=1920&bih=966&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=bh0zXofCG8zhz7sPgKKFoAY&q=knights+Templar+symbol&oq=knights+Templar+symbol&gs_l=img.3..0i67j0l6.10365.19157..19629...1.0..1.373.4901.0j19j1j3......0....1..gws-wiz-img.......0i131j0i10.G4sv9rpbnqs&ved=0ahUKEwiHsdqe96vnAhXM8HMBHQBRAWQQ4dUDCAY&uact=5 There is your cross.

  3. I actually really like that program. Not so much the way Discovery Channel drag it out & continually repeat stuff but the actual history & searches over the years. I knew very little to nothing about the Knights Templars & their history prior to the supposed find of the little lead cross on Oak Island & the research done trying to find out its origin. The connection with the Freemasons/Templars through to the present. I found it fascinating. If nothing else comes out of Oak Island then I learnt something that intrigues me with the Knights Templars & what they did & what they started. How they were screwed over by Kings/Queens & even the Pope. Nothing has changed when it comes to power, greed & control of people when it comes to religion & Governments. I will say no more on that. No but they found that lead cross, supposedly, & numerous other features, not just on Oak Island but throughout Nova Scotia, that mostly were related to the Templar Cross symbol. There is a connection too that the native people were affected & influenced by the presents of a people from a foreign land. All this way before Christopher Columbus "discovered" The New Land. I think the Legena's are onto something & I wish them well. Any way.....I enjoy it, despite how Discovery drag it out. I just fast forward all the repeats. JW 🀠
  4. Thats pretty cool Mitchel. Do you watch The Curse Of Oak Island? Knights Templar....treasure.... JW 🀠
  5. Thought it was for your wife? That excuse doesn't cut it with me any more. Then you confirmed it with this statement. πŸ˜‚ Well at least your first dug signal was a win.πŸ‘ JW🀠
  6. I know she has some pretty young female fans but your two year old son would have to be her youngest fan I have heard of. πŸ˜‚ He obviously has class. Don't suppose you saw here on the grammys? Good luck with your adapter. JW 🀠
  7. That's cool Mitchel. Yes they are very well packaged. Keep the 14" ML coil as it is & use the 19" for the doner. Of course a connector can always be put back on the 19" so it can still be used with the adapter plug. Do you have the plug for that? I haven't even tried my 15 x 10 X coil yet. Just having too much fun & success with the 10" This my last outing a few days ago & my biggest for a while. This is of course off old flogged ground that had dried up on me prior to the X coils. Can't wait to hear/see how you do. Exciting times for you. Best of luck out there JW 🀠
  8. Me to Jin. Top notch. πŸ‘
  9. Bad luck mate. Bet you were gutted having to put the lawnmower away.πŸ˜‚ Gosh there was that much grass it made the roo have a dump. There is still a tinge of green showing through, so not all is lost. Best get that fence up quick smart. 🀠 Hi Manny, nice pics you put up of your detecting grounds too by the way.πŸ‘ I, like you have many tough beats to get on to the gold. So I am all too aware of the efforts required. Some I can E- mountain bike into for a wee way & then slogging it out on foot. The good part of the E-bike is the coming back down. I fitted a 28 tooth front sprocket to really gear it down for the up hill grinds. Works a treat. Not so fast for over all speed but gravity coming down far over takes the peedling speed. Here are few pics, more to come as I am out of time right now. Actually I will just bang the pics up with no commentary. You will get the picture, no pun intended,πŸ˜„ but you will see the ground I have to deal with.
  10. I am going to get in trouble for this.....Don't introduce him to Shania πŸ˜‚ JW 🀠
  11. I can just see madtuna's pictures with not one spec of green....and definitely NO water, let alone running water. Ok....might not have the hills you have but he lives & works in a very dry, hot & barren land. Out in the sticks of WA. Thats Western Australia. Land of diesel & dust. Oh.....& gold....Aye mad fish.... JW 🀠
  12. Ahhhh....So your two year old taught you a thing or two in that 30 minutes of spelling games. 😁 πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Sorry Mitchel...couldn't help myself. JW 🀠
  13. Hi Simon, Yes.....but it is a banger on gold too, although small gold that has been missed by other detectors. But that suites our gold. Wasn't your biggest & smallest bit of gold found with the Nox 800? JW 🀠
  14. It will only be a gold rush if word gets out. Ssshhhh.....🀐 Good luck out there, When the snow melts. JW 🀠
  15. How do you find the weight with the battery hooked in there. Do you use your left arm to swing the detector? Good luck out there JW 🀠
  16. Who's to say I???....You said: Oh yes I recognize this area, I was there about 20 yrs ago. What makes you say Kiwi's are greedy, or are you assuming? I would have thought quite the opposite. So what 4x4 were you driving?πŸ˜„
  17. Sorry Mitchel, I just seem to be in one of those moods this morning. My warped sense of humour as you may see in a few other posts I replied to. I knew what you meant. I think JW 🀠
  18. Funny you should say that Dave, as that is exactly what I have found to be the case. Going back over old dig holes in the schist bedrock. Most were first done back in my GP 3000 & GPX days but some too with the Zed & 14" ML coil. With the X coils, & not just the 10" either, some have ended up with multiple more pieces of gold in them. This is where the X coils have opened up all that ground to me again. Ok....nothing bigger but gold is gold & no catch & release. Best of luck out there. JW 🀠
  19. Imagine losing a gold sovereign back in the day..... JW 🀠
  20. Nice findsπŸ‘. You must have spent a fair bit of time Roman around to find those. That must make the gold I find Roman Gold, because I Rome all over the bloody place trying to find it.πŸ˜‚ JW 🀠
  21. 1893.....I don't think they will be alive anymore Mitchel to tell their tales.πŸ˜‰ MMmm....this is a bit of false information from that article: Scientifically, gold is odd. It won’t mix with anything. Gold is found as pure gold nuggets or flakes. JW 🀠
  22. Or a bulldozer & scraping & pushing. Awesome mapping Geof πŸ‘ What a bunch of fun that must have been. Good on you mate, & well rewarded. JW 🀠
  23. You cant have been very good at detecting back then to leave all that gold for Geof & his wife. Or were you the guy in the 4x4 that was lost. πŸ˜‚ JW 🀠
  24. Isnt that the same for everything.πŸ˜‚ Once you know.....you know. If all else fails....read the manual.πŸ˜‚ JW 🀠
  25. Simon, I wasn't laughing at the first part of your post. Simon has joined the brotherhood of Zed users & very soon the X coils to go with it. And now he has stuffed his back. I can but imagine his frustration at not being able to get out there. So I had better clean up before he gets better πŸ˜‚ Had a good couple of hours last night in the cool of the evening. Been bloody hot lately. All that hot air & wind coming off that big island to the west of us.πŸ˜‚ Didnt head out until 7pm on the E bike. Back home at 9.45pm. I have had to resort to a cold chisel & hammer lately to carve deeply entombed gold out of "solid" schist bedrock. Last nights effort took an hour to carve one piece out, the bigger one, & then two more followed. Got 4 all up for the evening & my biggest piece for a while. This has been the trend lately. Get one piece out, cold chisel & hammer, re scan & multiple others follow from the one dig. This since the new year for several short stint missions in the cooler evening hours. Ground that wasn't suitable to the ML 14" coil. But bring on the little 10" X coil...heaven Imagine trying to get the ML 14" coil in among all that steep busy ground, but there is gold in there. Or in among those crevices. Here is an example of one dig, cold chisel & hammer (just more shit to carry in) I was a slow learner. I have always maintained that I was never the sharpest tool in the shed, but a tool....yes. Now I have left it stashed in there. saves me from carrying it in every time Knowing my luck Simon will come along detecting & find them. One dig that ended up in 5 pieces coming to the light of evening. Happy hunting & happy New Year. A bit belated I know JW 🀠
