  1. Forget about the pooch!, I'm looking at the stoneware crock! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  2. Your beaches/treasure holes give up an incredible amount of unusual and unending array of beautiful and unique pieces. You are the right man in the right spot. Do you ever cash in? GaryC/Oregon Coast
  3. What's your competition like, with that chilly water and air temps? Can't be too many souls willing to do what you do! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  4. Good lesson for newbies. You've got to kiss a lot of pigs first! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  5. I'm the 73 year old kid on the Oregon Coast who in no way in h-ll will ever pay for this thing by finding enough gold in ten years but still wants one to play with! Like Skate says, I'm the only one who's going to know if it works for me or not. If I don't like the damn thing I'll sell it. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  6. Metal detectors like aluminum! the bane of all detectorists! Cheap and very effective. Epoxy it to the lid. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  7. Taking a picture other than against glass would be helpful. Maybe against a black background. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  8. Ridge Runner had the same fix I had to do on an X-Terra 70 and 705. Both times when I got those detectors they cut out on me the same way. They don't have slide in battery packs but did have weak springs keeping the batteries from making good contact. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  9. Now that's a dig it all attitude! Persistance pays off! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  10. Warranty & Customer Service is going to be more important than price, especially on initial release. Bugs and failures are going to appear and quick turn around on parts and repairs are going to pay huge dividends in the long run. Just my opinion. Where is the factory repair facility? GaryC/Oregon Coast
  11. Your beach search hours were right in line with mine when I hunted So Cal beaches. Nice coin finds! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  12. Welcome to the Forum! I especially like this quote "You should also see if you can find any mining history in your area", especially where your creek runs. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  13. Looks to be a worry stone, you rub between your fingers. And yes it does look manufactured. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  14. I can see Luis's point about it falling and doing some damage. Like setting against the truck while getting ready and it slides along the fender hitting the ground! I know, that's going to be my problem (because I've done it dozens of times before) and I now know of it up front, but just saying he does have a point. Wish that earphone cable wasn't coming straight out the back, but maybe doing a 90 degree angle to take the pressure off the wire. Not complaining, just observing here. Thanks all for the on going questions. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  15. Did it come with a coil cover? How about an instruction booklet or is that online? Thanks, for being the go to guy on this. GaryC/Oregon Coast.
  16. Haven't seen much action on my local beaches since moving to Oregon these last couple of years. Beaches here are drastically different than my So. Cal. beaches. Took me years to learn my cuts and where to find them at my southern haunts. Now I'm having to learn these new beasts and it's been painfully bare of gold or coins. The beaches near me (Central Coast) are not what you consider bathing beaches. You don't see many people on the sand with blankets. These are dog walking bundle yourself up look for shells and rocks type of beaches. Luckily I also live near a river that runs right into the ocean and it requires a stone jetty to support it on either side. When the high tide pushes the river over the stone jetty to overflow it produces a slew or a calm saltwater wading pool for kiddies and young mothers. A perfect place for a towel to be put down to watch the toddler. This is where I will be finding my GOLD in the future. Ten minutes into the hunt I get a solid 10 on the Nox 800. 14kt, 2.5 gram gold ring with 4 seed diamonds (tested) and an opal. Picked up maybe ten dimes, 10 pennies, 4 nickels, an earring and four lead bullets which also read solid 10's on the Nox. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  17. So a bunch of poor souls had to stay on the outside and watch the fun on the inside of the roped off area. Fantastic video! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  18. So, what I am reading is, that this is strictly a Gold Hunting Machine! Silver items (or any other coin makeup) will be missed on the beach at any level. A machine dedicated for finding gold items only. I'm only asking about the beach dedicated one that is presently being produced. GaryC/Oregon Coast
  19. I can see lots and lots of people offering you rides to the beach! I live in Oregon and may be thinking of it! Please don't post your going to the beach ahead of time. The beach will be cleaned out!! GaryC/Oregon Coast
  20. My wife usually throws in the "I DON'T NEED A METAL DETECTOR" to find good stuff, and she doesn't. She's constantly finding coins on the ground in parking lots, store floors, coin starr machines, you name it, she tops me everytime!! It's all good! I give her due and she gives me my space.
