  1. I will second everything in this reply!!! The book is incredibly valuable & Gerry was extremely helpful when I spoke with him.
  2. Even the teeny ones are beautiful, but that big one is BEAUTIFUL!!! Congrats!
  3. I know this is a long shot but... I have #s 1, 3, & 4 in Jack Langes old series on the SD & detecting in general. They are on DVD so I assume they are copies. Any idea where I could get #2 or a complete set? Does anyone even know whats on # 2? I don't. Got them as part of a package deal when I didnt have a PI so never watched them. Now that I have a new to me old 2100v2 its become relevant! Thanks
  4. Dont still have it & want to part with it do you?
  5. This book is a winner. Misplaced or loaned out my first copy & couldn't find it so I had to order a second one a few months ago. Definetly worth paying for twice!
  6. Thanks for your input & encouragement! I ordered the Gold Screamer kit last week & an keeping my eyes open for an 8" momo coil. Looking forward to the snow going away around here so I can get out & play with it!
  7. Thanks everyone. I am into the machines at a pretty reasonable price. They were part of a package with some other prospecting equipment. When you take out the value of the other equipment (a gold wheel & a factory miller table setup) I figure I have $350 or 400 a piece in them. I'm sure they would work fine as is but I have a hard time leaving anything as is. For now I will just tweek one of them. I figure if the one I am using dies I can switch the gold screamer to the other one. As far as an accessory coil goes those are just like shoes for the wife right?😁 Thanks for the input on the 8" coil guys. I will keep an eye open for one! I Brake for Bedrock, really enjoy your videos!
  8. Right now I have 2 stock SD 2100 v2s that I just picked up. stock machines with factory 11" coils(DD according to manual). Will be trying to put them to use in some areas of my home state of Alaska (I do have a GB 2 & GM 2 for VLF friendly areas & conditions) but also hope to use one when we visit family in the Prescott AZ area. May be able to talk my wife into using one but most likely scinario is a primary machine & a backup machine. Right now I am looking at the Docs Gold Screamer kit with Lithium batteries. Also thinking an 8" Mono coil would be a good start for extra coils. Make sense? Recomendations? Would be interested in gently used if someone has one.
  9. Thanks guys, I will ck both of those out. My history is all VLF (GB 2 & GM 2) so all I know is little coil for little bits & big coil for bigger bits deeper... BUT, I love learning!
  10. As I watch for additional coils, what model detectors use the same coil? Both machines have 11" round coils simply labled "GP Series". As I understand these are DD coils? I understand the DDs handle extreme mineralzation batter but the monos go deeper?
  11. Swegin, both machines come to life with both batteries (charged them both) and thats about all I can tell for now with 2' of snow in my back yard & stuck in town. Rvpopeye, you asked for it! Lets start with both of these machines are the SD2100 v2. Is the v2 different from the standard 2100 or were they all v2s? I see aftermarket Gold Screamer LI battery kits but the listed voltage is 8v at full charge while the batteries that came with the machines are 6v. Issues?
  12. I would like to think so... Now I will be the guy asking all the sd2100 questions and putting more money in goodies than the detector is worth. Just like buying a gun or atvπŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‰
