  1. SHN when you get AU and AG in one hunt it is a great hunt!! I just feel sorry for the newbies with their first detector and they go behind you, they will think it is broken.
  2. I have tried using a PI in fresh water diving, The problem I had is there is to much iron and steel on the bottom. It does not rust away or get washed away like it does in salt water. If you had a lot of time and plenty of air you will do good. As far as the coil floating I wrapped a ankle weight around the shaft, it did the thick.
  3. A staggering number of targets!! 🏋️‍♀️ After digging that many targets law of averages is on your side. Its been a long time since I have seen a stamp that deep on a ring. That is an OLD one!! congrads SHN now hit the Aspirin
  4. All of what OBN said is spot on. What I can add is that up in the Northeast most of our fresh water beaches or swim areas were replenished with sand in the late 50s and 60s . I would suggest digging down in different areas to see how deep the sand is and if it is all the same. if the depth of sand goes way beyond the reach of your detector be happy picking fresh drops if you hit a hard bottom at a depth your detector could be capable of hitting then you could work that area very slow with much higher odds of finding silver or old gold. If it makes a sound dig it.
  5. You should be able to find enough here to get it done. https://www.google.com/search?q=coil+wire+repair+excalibur&rlz=1C1OKWM_enUS927US927&biw=1366&bih=625&sxsrf=AOaemvJp4lDnxx3fLFZOIPDYPEwFqQM12g%3A1639683867335&ei=G5e7Yd_XE82LytMPhvixgA8&oq=coil+wire+repair+exca&gs_lcp=Cgdnd3Mtd2l6EAEYATIFCCEQoAEyBQghEKABOgYIABAWEB46BQgAEIYDOggIIRAWEB0QHkoECEEYAEoECEYYAFDPKVivPWDPY2gAcAJ4AIAB8AaIAZcLkgEHMC40LjYtMZgBAKABAcABAQ&sclient=gws-wiz
  6. Here art some pics of what you are looking for. Unfortunately the handle is the the base. the small piece is a hip mount. I know of a person who is very good at designing for a 3 d printer, I could ask him to design a base plate if you have access to a printer. If you could least make the base plate with the 3 holes to mount to the detector then make it work to attach to a shaft.
  7. OUTSTANDING 99.9% of all detectorists will only be able to dream of silver like that!!!!
  8. It took almost 2 weeks before I heard back from them when I contacted them back in March. The repair was quick.
  9. THANK YOU SHN for letting me get my feet wet with the AQ. The part I had the most trouble with was pinpointing a shallow target once I got the target out of the hole, being chest deep and digging in running sand I dont have the time to check each scoop, I dig and dump piles next to each other so when I go back to check witch pile the target is in I can now judge by the strength of the signal witch scoop pile it should be in. Missing in the pic is a silver wave ring that has already been claimed. Joe you have helped many others including myself keep it up, Thank You
  10. And I think this is it. The area is only 20 feet x 40 feet that has been giving targets and its like there is a line that you cross and all goes quiet. I detected in all directions and with this being soft sand I was able to scrub the sand so could see where I had detected and not missed much. I will just have to keep an eye on it for now for any more changes. This little area has treated me well!! Good Luck to All
  11. You are correct mine is not silver the one that is silver is the one between the dime and the ring, bad pic.
  12. unfortunately it is a kids beach and most of the rings are junk but they did lose coins.
  13. Targets were still plentiful 6 wheats 4 silver coins a silver ring and a silver religious metal. It looks like they pushed the sand out in to the water. Cant forget this.
