  1. Hi 67, What part of KY. are you in? We have a Club in Ashland KY. and do a lot of work with the kids at the Library. If you are in that part of Ky. come by. Our Club is Dig-It-All detecting. Dean
  2. As for as a pinpointer, I have a TRX and it will pick up a #4 shot, That is a lot smaller than that nug. I didn't mean that you didn't do a good job. A pinpointer will speed up your dig time and give you more time to hunt. I do some beach hunting and my pointer will pick up ear ring backs when in my hand.
  3. Man you need a pinPointer, You can dig much more with less time trying to find it.
  4. I sure would like any of these treasures, Thanks flintstone
  5. You think it is good to have both detectors? I have a big park that I have went over and over with the XP, everyone said it is cleaned out, I know a lot of detectors have been over it, but still find a keeper ever now and then. If I sell a detector or two I might get a Nox.
  6. I have been seeing a lot of NOX for sale lately. Is everyone looking for something new? I have a XP Deus, and it dose every thing I need. I don't go in deep water, it still works for me. I would like to see XP come out with a coil that can hunt more than one frequency at a time. I asked about it and was told it could happen.
  7. Still today in SouthWest Kentucky where Fort Knox is you can't go in without singing a paper that you can't hold the USA for anything that happens to you. They still have drills for Army. I have deer hunted there and there is some trees that look like they have been hit by a boom that makes tooth picks out of them. There is still live amo in the mud that can kill you.
  8. Some of the best info on F75 I have read any where. I have not used mine much so I need to know the defferance in the detectors. Realy grate to read about difference in detectors.
  9. Only way to know for sure, is to cut a small piece off and send to a place that can tell for sure. Good luck, you might have a good one.
  10. I have used the swivel nozzle on my 2" Keens, but took it off after the swivel keep getting fine sand in it and would not trun. Sometimes it was even upside down and need a big long handle of something to work it loose. They are good when they work, but if locked up then a pain. Hope yours work better if you get one.
  11. Thanks All, Don't want to get into a big fuss over this. This is just something I have been working on over the cold weather here. I test my tailing and lose very little with the 2" Keens, but run slow so not to blow any out. I was thinking that use the same motor as the 2" and run faster would let me move more dirt. The 3" has a 5 horse motor, and that is load by itself. I think I will try the 3" sluice on the 2" frame and that motor, and run faster. I do get good gold from where I go, there was a mine back in the 1800's on top of the hill where I go. Every spring there is more gold in the same spots I did the year before. Biggest piece is about a 10th of a gram. I sometimes go and just pan when it is to cold to get in the water and get 6 or 7 pieces in a pan. Going to try and make it out more this year. With a broken back and a plate in my neck, some days when it is cold I just can't make it. If anyone has more info, put it to me. I am 67 years old and try to do what I can till my time comes. Thanks for all the help. Dean
  12. Hi Swamp, do you think the 2" floats will float the 3" sluice and use the 3" hose? I have boath set ups, It is just the 3" hose and high banker is just so much heavier than the 2". I prospect in OHIO, and the gold is very small, I got to go about 6 times last year and ended with 1.10 OZ. of gold. Going to try and do better this year. thanks Dean
  13. Hi All, I have a 2" Keene dredge and a 3" Keene HighBaker, I use the 2" 90% of the time cause the 3" high banker about to much for me to get to the small creek I go to. I get very small gold at this creek but a lot of it. Do you think if I fit the 3" sluice box on my 2" floats I can get better gold recovery? I never run my Honda full blast anyway. I was just thinking the bigger sluice will keep more small gold. What do you all think? Thanks Dean
  14. Hi tboykin, The Grout/mud mixer, will work. I frond gold with clay and put a half of a 5gal. bucket with water and mix the heck out of it. Take a lid and put a hole in middle so the water and mud don't fly out. I frond most of the gold was just on top of the clay, not much in it. Hope this helps some, Dean
  15. Be sure that if your magnet is just a plain magnet, and not a gold recovery magnet, that you put it in a plactic bag or bottle or you can't get the black sand off the magnet.
