  1. Steve H, what are your thoughts on the NOCO GB150 now that you've had it for awhile? Did you use it to charge any detectors and/or cell phones? Thanks.
  2. Found it. There are several different styles. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Dickies+Work+Gear+57080
  3. Flak, try this method of pinpointing with the Equinox. It's a DD coil, so should work the same. I've been using this method for years, much quicker recovery. Thanks for the report on the 800.
  4. Click on the big green "M". On the next screen in the upper left you will see the big green "M" again. There should be an icon showing on the lower left of the "M". Click on that and you will be able to upload your picture. Let us know if you are still having problems.
  5. Not by me, unfortunately. Nice back story as well. Check it out. http://metaldetectingforum.com/showthread.php?t=254966
  6. The Equinox also looks good on the beach at Tahoe Steve. I love that lake, beautiful place for sure.
  7. I know your asking about VLF machines. But you might look into the Whites TDI SL. It's less expensive, lighter than an ATX, has a lot of different coils that work with it. Plus it's a PI which will punch deeper in most cases.
  8. Thanks for the heads up Jim, been wondering. Plus thanks for all your support over the years. Here's hoping everything works out.
  9. Tom, nice closeups. Try a black background, that should make the nuggets pop even more.
  10. Call the folks at "metaldetector.com". Ask for Bill Ladd, he has helped me twice with Makro problems. One being the Gold Racer. He/They get problems corrected pretty quickly. It's possible they will be familiar with your problem and get it corrected even faster. They are the USA distributor for Makro and the repair center for the USA. Good luck.
  11. Mine ran fine until I go out in the field. Tested it again at home before sending it to Detector Electronics. It worked fine for a few minutes, then all kinds of racket that I could not get under control. Same with two different coils. So it's something with the control box. Got an email from Detector Electronics this morning. They are sending me a new unit. I'll report back after I get it next Friday.
  12. Great video. Very well done. Thanks for sharing your trip.
  13. I'm also having problems with my Gold Racer. It tested out fine at home when I first received it. Got out the first time this week to the gold fields in N. California. Ground balanced, then immediately started chattering. This is in the All Metal mode. Held the coil steady at waist height. Still chattering and displaying ID numbers as if I was moving the coil over trashy ground. Tried the 5" coil, same thing. Tried all shorts of on screen adjustments including all the different frequency levels. No change. Got my Racer 2 out, it worked fine in All Metal, so not the environment. Did this at several different sites miles apart, including back at home. Will be calling Detector Electronics first thing tomorrow. I know they will get it corrected, just disappointing results after making a long trip. I also wish I would have kept the GB2 as a backup. But as seldom as I can get out, it made more sense to sell it. Wrong again.
