  1. Outback Yank Hmmmmm , sounds like a name someone might adopt after moving there.......... Well , good luck on the hunt no matter how long you stay. Hope ya can post a pic that would make Gerry's jaw hurt just lookin' at it !
  2. C'mon aboard Jeff ! Do you have a primary target or looking for anything the detector finds ?
  3. O. M. G. THAT'S a Cut !😮 (Kinda looks like the homeowners down the beach are probably getting nervous ....)
  4. Nice little piece of engineering. 👍 I'll chance a prediction.... 🤔 That set of diamond earrings it catches will buy you a new Equinox 1000....🤩
  5. I've used them all except for the lavender . Including the net suits . The permethrin dip is awesome. They all work , sort of. Repel40 is my go to , but I have a bottle of the tick spray too , Like I said I use them all,,, Anything is better than nothing in bug war. I swell up like crazy with insect bites. Ticks , not so much but have a tick spoon for easy removal (of the bigger ones),,,agree the tiny deer ticks are the worst , and they are the ones carrying Lyme.... The DEET will definitely melt plastic , I remember the Estwing hammer handles that got slick when I was doing construction back in the 90s. I also found out the hard way it will dissolve the rubber lining in my Grunden$ rain gear ! I wore it over a shirt and pants that was sprayed with deet a few hours earlier , so not just the liquid...😢 You have been warned....arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh ! .. I've also found the lack of ticks at the beaches a nice bonus !
  6. If a picture really is worth a thousand words,,,,that one must be ten thousand words , minimum !👍
  7. So , you're saying a typical day out prospecting ! 😉 Lucky calf too , you saved it .....🤕
  8. You do have a good point , that good stuff probably weighed too much...🤔
  9. Good info so far ^^ Weight was an issue for my abused old elbows ! I chose a smaller one (T-Rex ) stainless and just put on an old wooden D handle from a grain shovel (which was too big for snow!) As mentioned , the carbon fiber handles are a great choice if you have the $. I'm saving for an upgrade..... There are short clamp on handles that make pulling a straight shaft UP easier ! Get one of them if you go straight any type handles . Slippery when wet. Some people add a pool noodle to keep 'er afloat when wading in above waist water.. this works for the detector too.... Don't forget the sun screen. Happy digging, life's a beach !
  10. Welcome aboard Nick. Huge amount of knowledge here, already in print as well as the ask a question method. Guides to just about everything , click below
  11. Yup yup, Southern NH , I'm in Southern Maine. Explains the resemblance of our woods ! It's gonna freeze up again way too soon , git 'er done and good luck !
  12. A Straight Jacket buckle ? Isn't THAT an interesting find ! Bet nobody has a collection !😉 "well I'm allright now , I learned my lesson well, you can't please everyone , so you better please yourself" Old Ricky Nelson song , but it applies to your posts now....Garden Party IIRC if you want to hear it.
  13. Nice place . I predict you will spend a lot of time there ! What's yer "general area" ? Looks like my woods..🤔
