  19. Keep it up Steve, you have a forum you created that has attracted many good people from all backgrounds, with varying degrees of detector knowledge. I appreciate the diverse group we have here that share knowledge with all of us on this forum. Been detecting a long time, had many machines and still continue to learn to be most effective when out in the field. I appreciate JP and all the members that contribute to the forum that help us all find that elusive gold. One thing to keep in mind is our members come from all regions of the world, who are also here to learn and contribute.

  21. Just send me one and I will do a test on a dozen of my dead patches. If I pull gold out of them I will be happy to pay for it. I'll be happy to take some video and post them on the Tube... :)
  22. Keeping my 4500 for now, perhaps in time and more field comparisons I may change my mind.
  23. Get well Norman wishing you the best recovery.
