  1. 10/4 on the points.😏 The ring should be good for a point or two ?
  2. Well , that worked out pretty good ! 😳 Def go back and don't wait longer than tomorrow. 😎
  3. It might be possible to restore those coil wires , but I wouldn't go too overboard with trying to replace the cable. The coils might fail anyway.( BUT maybe NOT !)πŸ€” Your shrink wrap idea sounds like a good try at sealing the outer coating IMO. It wouldn't have to be one continuous piece... There are variations on shrink that have a sealant inside ! There is also a product sometimes called liquid electrical tape that would work on the shrink joints too.~$5-10 for a tin. Available at an auto pts or even wally's . I think it's the same stuff that they used to sell for dipping tool handles in. Or the stuff that is advertised by sealing a boat with a screen bottom......( Not getting into brand names.)😏 Another product that could prove useful is the self sealing tape that is intended for things like radiator hose leaks. Good luck on the rescue ! Looking forward seeing your results. OH , one other thing if you decide to just go with electrical tape. I will give a brand name on this one...Scotch 88 , worth the extra price to this old road tech.

  7. I'm sure Sally didn't want to chew on that speci ! At Gerry's gold training camp . And Gerry taking the pic. The pressure to taste dirt must have been overwhelming ! So tell us Gerry. Inquiring minds need to know........ Do you teach them all to do a dance while cleaning their treasarrr too ?

  16. sohN 24" ? that's not black sand , you hit oil ! 🀠 Lots of the old familiar junk but it seems like there's always some treasure no matter where you're hunting . Or which detector you're using.πŸ‘ You do realize that I've developed expectations when you post a hunt ? 😏 If I get to a beach and see you leaving , I expect I'll just keep going !πŸ€” Keep on keepin' on !
