  1. This exact same thing has happened to me many times. I’m not sure what causes it….maybe some type of halo effect? If I’m remembering correctly this usually happens on deep targets. As to the OP lifting his coil and getting an iron tone, that dime was probably on the edge of detection.
  2. I’m glad you like it! The guy that makes these is very meticulous and pays a lot of attention to detail! Even his installation instructions are very detailed. There’s another guy on ebay making a similar two piece stand but from the pics it looks like his uses a wood screw to hold the two pieces together instead of machine screws with a nylock nut. Which are stainless I might add. And he includes a made in the US allen wrench! Let us know how yours holds up.
  3. I do the same thing sometimes and it really does make you concentrate on the sound of the tones. With that said, the VDI numbers are another tool in the toolbox of clues to help decipher what’s in the ground. Although guys like Paystreak only use tones all the time, I feel he’s not taking full advantage of all the clues the detector is giving him by not looking at the numbers.
  4. Sorry, I put the wrong link. Here’s mine. It’s the medium size. https://www.ebay.com/itm/364647857186?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=VpW7kC_7SF6&sssrc=4429486&ssuid=aM-gh_K9QNO&var=634169554812&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  5. Here you go. He has different sizes (heights). https://www.ebay.com/itm/364647856679?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=VpW7kC_7SF6&sssrc=4429486&ssuid=aM-gh_K9QNO&var=634169620629&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  6. click on the very first result and scroll down until you see an update box.
  7. Well, I went ahead and got another D2 with both the 9” and 13”x11” coils. I opted for the package that included the wasii headphones instead of the ws6. I’m glad too. The wsaii’s are not only lighter, but less expensive. I never used the ws6 as the master on my first D2 so the wsaii made more sense for me. Here’s a pic of my old rig on the left that I’ll use mainly for water hunting. As you can see I bought the RCDIGS remote holder for this set up. I also got a really well made stand for the new stem on ebay. Here’s a close up of it:I just went out to my single coin coin garden😂. I have a silver dime that I buried maybe two years ago and at that time it was exactly 8” deep. I just ran through every stock program and man oh man is that 13x11 ever deep”. In every program except fast40 I could still hit that dime with coil raised around 4” off the ground. In the beach mode it was hitting it with the coil about 6” off the ground! Gold and relic were really close to that. All with good ID’s too! I only spent about 3 or 4 minutes testing this out, but I’m impressed! Also that big coil is not nearly as nose heavy or hard to swing as I thought it would be. In fact it’s not bad at all!
  8. I got it!!! What threw me off was thisI kept waiting for the connect box to light up without realizing I had to click on the “xp deus2” first to enable the blue connect box! Duh!🙄 All is well now in my world! Thanks for all your help!!
  9. Thanks yes I’m using the short cord and pressing the minus button first then plus button and holding for 12 seconds until light goes steady. Here’s my two usb portsI’ll try again later this afternoon. Thanks again!
  10. Thanks Bob maybe you can help me out. I just tried updating and when I plug the usb cord into my laptop I get thisI’ve tried over and over to the point where I just want to get a new laptop because mine’s old and slow. However when I updated my old remote and ws6 a couple of months ago I had no problems. Do you know a fix for this? I remember you saying you were an IT guy? So that’s why I’m asking you. I’m not too good at this stuff. thanks
  11. Thanks guys! I didn’t realize the wsaii’s needed updated. I’ll try updating them today. The remote has the latest update (2.0) and I just figured everything would work.
  12. I just received my second D2 but I got the package that just comes with the wsaii phones (no ws6 puck, but new remote, stem and coil). The phones will play the start up jingle whether I do the automatic pairing or the manual pairing and I can hear the beeps when changing the volume using the buttons on the headphones but when using the remote to change the volume I don’t hear anything. Also when I turn the remote off I do not hear the “turning off” jingle and the light on the wasii continues to blink meaning it’s still on. Also when I wave a coin over the coil I see the correct numbers but hear no sound at all with volume at 7 or any other setting. Just to check the new remote, I successfully paired my old ws6 puck and it works as normal and turns on and off with the remote as it should. And I also tried pairing the new wsaii’s with my old remote with the same result as when trying to pair to the new remote. One other thing: In the manual under Automatic pairing it says hold the minus button down for 2 seconds and if doing it manually hold it for 8 seconds. In both cases I hear the startup jingle almost immediately and if I continue to hold for the full 8 seconds I get this on the screen: Any ideas? Btw, I got both the 9” and the 13x11 coil with the new remote and the wsaii’s don’t work with either coil paired to the remote. Thanks for any help!
  13. Excellent analogy and so true! That stuff is really soft clay. Your foot sinks in 6 or 8 inches and it requires a lot of effort to get it out!
  14. Got out to the lowered lake on Saturday which happened to be my birthday. Got this ring which wad missing the stone. It doesn’t have any markings anywhere, but it looks like it tests at 14k. I also got a small .925 heart bracelet and 925 stud earring which I forgot to get pics of but will add later. No silver coins this time but 9 wheats and a buffalo nickel. As a bonus got $6 something in clad. more pics of the ring. All shown are 14k Acid test. Left to right: 10k, 14k, 18k acid A muddy mess. Very, very hard to get around to detect in that slimy, sinky clay! Another ring pic Here’s a pic of the bracelet and earring after I attempted cleaning them.
  15. Wow, a flying eagle and a sitting eagle! Congrats on not only some great finds but a great site!
  16. You know it and I know it! I’m going to try again this weekend.
  17. Probably why I’m reluctant to part with my nox800 with the 6” round coil.
  18. I’ll be 61 in a few days. Thanks for the recommendation on the Braggs. I’ll give it a try.
  19. I’d think I was in detector heaven if I found any one of those coins. Way to go George!
  20. We have a 30 acre lake on the property where I work. This is the first time since I’ve been working there (4.5 years) that it’s been lowered. So I took off last friday and hit the small swimming area. I endured the mud for 5 straight hours and got two silver rings, $11.40 in clad and three silver coins; a GW, a merc and a rosie. I feel like I’m in pretty good shape. I lift weights (3) one and a half hour sessions each week and ride my bicycle to work each day. However, my back and hamstrings were so sore that night that I didn’t think I’d get out the next day. When I got up Saturday I was still sore but by late afternoon I had recovered enough to hit that area again for two hours. It paid off with $3.95 in clad, 5 more silver coins: a ‘45 war nickel, ‘42 quarter, no date SLQ, ‘17 merc and after tumbling the clad there was a ‘46 quarter in there! (Not shown, but it’s nice and clean! Lol) Here’s the rest of the stuff. And here’s a picture of the drained 117 year old lake.
  21. I say gold also. If that inscription from ‘93 is engraved you would have corrosion on those letters and numbers.
