  1. Look forward to hearing you speak Chris. Been listening for a lot of years on forums. Azavsfan. Your not going to Vegas, your going to a seminar on geological structures as they relate to earth quake preparedness. Tom
  2. Steve and Chris Just wondering if either one of you gentleman will be putting on a seminar at this show. I am from Canada, but will be in Vegas that week, and would love a chance to hear you speak. It would be a nice break for you guys from the snow in Reno. Merry Christmas Tom
  3. If you take a look at an analog detectors meter readings, i believe they are grouped based on conductivity. I was referring to how it applies to a detector, as apposed to the theory of current flow. When i saw the chart it reminded me of the chart in a little booklet called fisher intelligence put out by Tom Dankowski. Sorry ,didn't mean to get off the topic of the thread!
  4. So if gold were alloyed with nickel and bronze, could it drag the reading on out detector into the iron range?
  5. Hopefully you'll have another of these in feb/mar. when some of us northerners are wandering some what lost through the desert. Still looks pretty hot out there. Have fun boys and girls!! Tom
  6. I think like Steve says, the best application is to scan quartz samples. I used mine to scan the dry moss on top of rocks, and it works pretty well because the moss doesn't tend to be over loaded with black sand. I didn't find any nuggets(yet) but did bind little pieces of aluminum so hopefully one of those will be a nugget. I tried to see if I could used it to track high concentrations of black sand, but never had any success with that. The one tip I would give if you are using it in a creek bed is, scan just above the surface of the gravel and if you get a signal(beep beep) hold the probe dead still over the target. Now move the probe toward the target. If you get a beep it's non ferrous, if you don't get a beep, hold it dead still again and then pull it away from the target. If you get a beep it's a hot rock(pebble) or a piece of iron. It's teadeous, but can be effective for crevicing. good luck Tom
  7. Steve Thanks for that explanation. The 7 min. video with BC flipping the magnet over top of the coil now makes sense to me. It seems like such a simple thing but Mr. Candy is first again. He's the Steven Jobs of metal detectors, everybody is always trying to catch him. Tom
  8. When I watched the introductory video, there were two spots were they implied that the GPZ is not a PI. At the 51/2 or so minute mark the moderator says in highly mineralized ground the GPZ is much better than a PI. I'm like you Steve, my eyes glaze over when I read the technical stuff but it sounds like this is new tech or a hybrid of some sort.
  9. Steve Does it have any form of ferrous non ferrous disc. This will be the first technology that outperforms a Pi at depth, so its a all metal vlf that handles bad ground better than any before it. I wonder if it will work for the relic hunters?
  10. WoW Keith!! As I was reading Steve's post, in the back of my mind I was thinking we never hear of C-Sope anymore. Bang! You post about Tesoro link. that would be interesting. The very first detector I owned was a CS6Pi.
  11. Steve Did you do anything special to clean it or just water. You seem to have the same gift with a camera as you do with words. Great piece. Merry Christmas Tom
  12. Hi Steve If you don't mind me asking, how did you have your GMT set up? Thanks Tom
  13. Thanks Steve. Based on that I'll keep my gmt, Cz5 and maybe down the road get a used Tdi, Which I've always wanted to try.
