  1. Just read the email, definitely exciting news! America made will continue, All the best to Ken and Mary, and the staff. I hope many of its employees carry over, they will need them. Terrific news! Paul
  2. Hello Steve, Sold the CleanSweep coil earlier this year, just couldn’t see myself using it. Tried testing it but back to the box it went, someone on eBay bought it. However, not the Pantera it’s a keeper. It’s staying in my Tesoro stable, probably one of my two Tesoro favorites. Have a strong feeling Vintage models are coming back ! Paul
  3. Congratulations Rick! Scoring a mint Pantera is rare, Great find definitely keep this model. It’s a super neat detector for parks and even school yards if you can still find one open to public. If after high conductive coins, you’ll be digging copper pennies, dimes and quarters all day. Mine came from the UK, Super nice lady used it for relic hunting and school yards. Only had to replace coil, current coil came off an Outlaw. Between the Pantera and Golden uMax, I’d rather use the Pantera. Check your home mail box tomorrow, that little piglet is arriving.
  4. That’s a great idea, practice with the non-working MX-Sport model before moving onto the good model. Keep us posted how everything works out, Good luck! Paul
  5. Forgot to add, everything will be fine after putting back together. Make sure no sand falls on the seal before tightening battery box back together, Will continue to give you many hours of waterproof fun in the future. Paul
  6. Hello EastCape, I would recommend staying with the original MX-Sport, Would be much easier tightening the loose battery box instead of switching boxes from the non-working model. You’ll need a T10 and T15 TORX, now remove two T15 TORX screws as shown on the second picture. Then, carefully remove battery box. You'll see two battery springs, with two T10 TORX screws beside and a fastening bolt. Remove these two T10 TORX screws, then remove fastening bolt. Carefully, remove plastic frame away from the fastening bolts threaded area. Just enough to tighten the four T15 TORX
  7. My condolences Reggie on the loss of your adventures father, he will definitely be missed and remembered. Your dad and I spent many hours on the phone, mostly on the TDI mods and original Tesoro Lobo mods. Even on BFO models, he was working on a special mod with BFO few years back. I remember Reggie being very excited, So we traded a few of his vintage detectors for a few of my Garrett BFO models. I learned a lot from your father, he helped me be creative and experiment with ideas of my own. Especially with the TDI, actually still my TDI, modded with your dads mods. Another m
  8. I use both coils for iron laced sites, Prefer 9” HF coil over the elliptical for most hunting conditions. These are terrific coils for relic hunting, I’m after thinner worn seated/bust coins and mainly stay with higher KHz. Sometimes, lower KHz may miss worn silver especially deeper 1/2 dimes so with the 9” HF I’ll run 54KHz. Occasionally, Switch to the elliptical HF if time allows and that’s after using the 9”HF. Both do a good job, Somehow the elliptical has survived hasn’t hit the classifies. After reading several of these responses from the others, I tend to agree
  9. As Steve mentioned, needs to be V3 rated. When I had a V3, never could hunt river or lake black sand. Overloaded, that was with using V3 rated coils. Sold it, never picked up another one. Paul
  10. Very nice cjc, Extremely nice vintage ring find, any chance it’s dates back before 18th century. Looks old, UK area 1500-1700 era? Congrats! Paul
  11. I remember taking that Compass picture Sven, unfortunately my Compass line grew since then 😊 And that was only Compass models, my favorite. Fortunately, I’ve stopped collecting vintage models. Thanks for including a part of my collection in your website . Paul
  12. I’ll do that in the near future GB, Post several of my favorite vintage detectors, boy I’ve got a bunch of favorites 😊 Thanks for the encouragement! Paul
  13. Good to see Alan still out there searching for gold, definitely a trooper loves the hobby! I have a nice collection of Alan’s detecting gear, many vintage Compass models, several Garrett models and a few Whites models. Several are rare models, a few extremely rare. All still work well. Keeping them going is part of my yearly routine, and occasionally use them. Keep up the good hunt Alan! Paul
  14. Very informative V5 pot post Sven, Definitely a post to save for future information, appreciate you taking the time to share. Very informative, Blisstool V5 will serve you well. Although I’m not running a V5 anymore, switched to a V6 when they were released. Been very fortunate, my pots on my V6 are still clean and so far no wear very responsive. I suppose someday will probably need to change them, currently use a cover keeping dust away from them. Here in my area, it’s tough using Gain above 2 and if I go any higher it’s extremely hard to dial in the Course and Fine GB
