  1. Looks like they are selling on Ebay usa now. I found a couple listings for gpx coils, 12x6 and 10" spiral.
  2. One of the best things about Whites metal boxed detectors was better EMI resistance.
  3. Still hanging in there with a gpx4500 and flatwire coils, a gm1000, and a MXT Pro with detech small excellerator coils.
  4. Welcome to the forums, sounds like you are gung ho for nugget hunting. I hope we can be of some use to you for opinions on certain types gear etc. Your TDI sounds like an interesting rig. Reminds me of a Subaru Outback I saw drive up to our gold camp in the Rye Patch area wearing some gnarly BFG TA/KO-2'S, great tires if you can figure out how to fit em. 3 ply sidewalls protect from sharp rock penetration. Unfortunately KO-2'S have to be D range to have the 3 ply sidewalls, C range only has 2 ply sidewalls. Be prepared for a lot of rock generated flats running 2 ply sidewalls in gold country. Seen it a lot out there.
  5. Notching 2 to 10 will eliminate any ladies thin rings, like wedding rings, most are in the 1-1.5 gram range and thin. Just sayin. Do your own tests with known gold items and trash items before building your notch system.
  6. KellycoD, won't you consider becoming a QED dealer here in the USA? The new PL4 looks great. Its only a matter of time til someone here becomes a dealer for them.
  7. If I was Garrett I woudn't cross contaminate the brands in any way. Whites can stand alone on its product, probably better than Garrett detectors in general.
  8. This is great news, maybe Garrett can bring the Hybrid Half Sine machine to market, its been in prototype testing a long long time.
  9. Pretty darn narrow maybe 20 yards wide or less, but could be 50-200 yards long just depends how long its been shedding I guess. Most these areas are very small overall, obscure, so its easy to see how a person might not find gold in a given area, yet someone else who knows exact locations (perimiters) will be more successful. I found a few of my patches by working off others dig holes, then checking for lines after finding a few nuggets. Gradually you will see how and where a patch runs. I learned this from reading AuTrinity's postings yrs ago.
  10. This is one of my favorite type terrains to detect small nuggets, I have found that anywhere drywashers or even a single drywasher has been setup and did well, tiny nuggets still exist in these areas. The areas I have found like this are generally on hillsides. And the nuggets will be in lines or at least are on my patches like this.
  11. I bought a Relco BFO and built it in the mid 60's, it worked, you tuned it to a transistor radio and get a bfo signal to listen to. It did work. I think i remember there was one transistor in the simple circuit board you had to build. Found a lot of metal items on our 3 acres but nothing valuable. Moved to Calif 1972 then bought my first TR Whites coinmaster used from a buddy, was hooked after that.
  12. I think a 32 oz nugget would signal down to 28" with a gpx 4500. If it has a lot of solid gold in it.
