  1. I sorta look at all the detector companies as the "parents" driving on a long vacation! And us users as the "kids" asking " Are we there yet"!!! Most all of you have been there!!! How did you answer after about the 50th time?πŸ€£πŸ˜… Not the perfect analogy, but you get the idea!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  2. Hello and welcome Billy, The welding and fab ability goes well with detecting! We have many here who like to make their own accessories for digging, etc.. Look forward to some posts!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  3. The control head is the only thing i haven't replaced with aftermarket parts, or warranty replacement! Its all good though! I'm in good company! Love you guys! (and gals)πŸ‘πŸ‘
  4. Minelab will fix all these issues!! When they release the new coil sizes for the Equinox!!πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜… Life is short! Don't sweat the small stuff!β³βŒ›πŸΊπŸΊπŸ‘πŸ‘
  5. Hey DoD, I just responded to you on Meet and Greet! Welcome! Don't Get Discouraged!! All that junk probably means no one else has taken the time to find the good stuff!! I would love to detect a "junk" area like that! Other than the "Treasure Coast" ( local's rule there) North of me, there's nothing historic anywhere in South Florida that hasn't been paved over, built on, or inaccessible! It depends on how much access time you have to this property! You can "Cherry Pick" the good targets with the detector you are most experienced with, if limited on time! Or, if you have unlimited access, digging it all is tiring, but will not only clear the way for deeper and masked targets, but even the "trash" could be worth finding! Gridding the most promising areas in manageable chunks may make it easier to clear the trash! And not wear out your ears!! Use landmarks with your grids, and take pictures to keep track of where you've cleaned out! There's alot of other variables that play into it! Like your experience level, has it been detected before, etc! But overall it sounds very interesting and ripe for some good finds!! I'm sure others will chime in with much more knowledge than me! Good luck, and keep us posted!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  6. Hello and Welcome DoD, Your in a great area to detect many types historic items! I see you have several detectors! Show us some finds!! Or send us some bourbon! Not in any particular order! 🀣🀣 Happy hunting, and look forward to some posts!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  7. I was thinking of cuts, splits, or nicks in the coil wire, or coil! That would let the EMI ( and moisture) enter and mess with it more than normal!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  8. Hey Simon, I'm willing to trade all the US pennies and clad you can carry for some of what your finding!!🀣 But seriously, have you thought about checking with ML for a through going over of the 800?? Your's could be glitchy!? It's still under warranty, right!! Keep up the good work!! And i love thay you did not mention yor back pain once this time!!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  9. Awsome video, The Egyptian Pharaohs would have been envious of that pour! I volunteer to sweep up the slag!!πŸ˜†
  10. Canadian coin 100 kg! Australian coin 1012 kg!!,🀯 We have a winner!! Any guesses on what they would read on the Knox??
  11. It's probably buried in one of Simon's ball fields! (near a goal post) He just hasn't passed a detector over it yet!!🀣😁 Or, he thought the signal was the goal post!! 🀯🀯 😁
  12. Wow, Hard to choose what coins i like more!! How about all of them! I'm jealous!πŸ‘πŸ‘
  13. Hey Simon, As usual, nice finds! Like i said before! I don't think any place is ever hunted out! You are keenly aware that different detectors are only one factor in finding buried objects! Coil angle, coil speed, coil size, and design, soil conduction (wet/dry), and composition, metal composition, etc... And there is always the "Luck" factor, of which you have an ample supply!πŸ€πŸ€πŸ˜† If you contact ML, ask Palzanski's question about the Vanquish's susceptibility to humidity, or rain intrusion! Maybe they can give you a more specific, lay person answer, that can be posted here for everyone interested in purchasing one! Thanks, and be safe!πŸ‘πŸ‘
