  1. great job. I can't wait to get back to detecting after taking a few weeks off.
  2. Just read on my 8" post that Rick is a dealer so I would contact him first.
  3. It was thru Fisher, $299 with a new lower rod. Not sure what the shipping since the price was for a AQ and optionally the 8".
  4. I got the email yesterday. They said they tried to call but I had no missed messages.
  5. Fisher contacted me for a purchase of an AQ and was offering the 8" coil. I passed on the AQ since I already have two. Anyone purchased the 8" and what is your opinion?
  6. He has only been out a hand full of times dealing with his issues. I'll definitely put it aside and have his opinion and he always have a strong opinion...lol I think I heard that story about you breaking his ring. A lot of pollution in our waters.
  7. I needed to know so I did the electrolysis and cleanup the ring by brushing and wiping clean. I also did the acid test on the metal that is the thinnest part of the band where it looks like the ring could have been plated. It appears to be gold under the plate. That result is still 14k. The pic was taken 5 minutes after applying the acid.
  8. This is how I tested it. I scratched the stone with bigger marks than normal. My guess the scratch was 3/4" long, 1/8 wide. Three of them. I put 10k, 14k, and 18k acid. The 18 acid ate it up immediately. I left the acid on the lines for over 10 minutes as I took a shower. The 10 and 14 lines were still present. Also, the density of the ring feels heavy for its size. Without destroying the ring, if there is a better way to test, please help me out.
  9. I guess I should not fly with those batteries. TSA would think they are a bomb....lol
  10. Occasionally, we'll get a ring that is so delicate that if you drop it on a hard surface they will break into multiple pieces. This one tested as a 14k so I was a little surprised that there was so much tarnish and erosion of the filler metal.
  11. I have an older Iphone so my closeups are only so-so. There are two dots which could be a makers mark but I never seen one with two dots. I did a 10k, 14k, and 18k acid test. The '18' ate it up right away. I went for a shower and the '10' and '14' was still intact when I came out.
