  1. You might try going after that towing company in a state court or find some more people who were screwed by them and do a class action suit. They were not acting legally, but no one calls them on it and county agencies can be in cahoots. I know, all that kind of stuff is a big hassle. I've read about a county in New Mexico where the sheriff wasn't interested in pursuing murder cases!
  2. Hi Dave, Coincidentally I have a Nautilus DMC llBa on US eBay right now, also in pristine shape. It came with a battery charger that I never used; just took out the batteries and re-charged them. It's a Calrad Ac Adaptor Model 45-767; Input 120 VAC, 60 Hz, 16W, Output 24 VDC, 400ma. The detector came from a prominent Dankowski Forum member, so the adaptor, if you can find one, should be right-on. Best of Luck and enjoy the Nautilus, Joel
  3. It;s the right formation--bubbly. Wet the rock and see if there's any irridescense in the bubbles. eBay should have some good examples of rough fire agate.
  4. Ask Show Me Treasure--Craig Nichols--what kind of deal he can give you. His quote to me was very good and I've dealt with him many times--a right-on guy.
  5. Steve, What Khz were you using to find the silver coins? And did you try the near equivalent with the Impact? Those are some great finds in the heavily hunted places! And I like the fact that you can find sub-grain nuggets, also. Thanks, Joel
  6. I have a very experienced gold detecting friend out of Chico, CA who detects in the general LaPorte area. Since he's not on the Net, he asked me to get him a NEL Snake coil for his Lobo Supertraq about a year ago, and says that it out-does the GB2!! which he's used forever. Which is really saying something. You might try refreshing your Lobo with this coil. Request a price from Showmetreasure--it will be better than the usual quoted one. Riversrat in England uses this combo on the Thames River.
  7. Jen, Many Thanks, It's on the Main Drag! Joel
  8. HI Jennifer, I live in the next town E of Winnemucca, Battle Mountain, and often shop at Walmart for groceries, so I'm wondering where Doc's is located because it looks like a good place to refresh before heading back. I remember when I took Jerry's detecting class at Rye Patch a few years ago, he got 2 flats coming and going and I noticed that he drove like hell. I do a lot of back road driving out here and because I slow way down on coarse gravel or bad roads, I rarely get a flat So, slow to save the tires. Joel
  9. It seems like the taste in gold pans is similar to liking a certain guitar to play. And Klunker & I just like the feel of steel, What do they use in the Gold Panning Championships? That contest is based on retention. I gotta blue mine up for a coming trip to the old N Yuba to pan the fines from Vak-Pak-ing.
  10. Klunker, On the River, Prospecting thread, you alluded to the superiority of the steel pan. Some people booed your opinion. I've used a steel pan forever because it's substantial and I hate plastic; almost every piece of plastic gear falls apart relatively quickly. But I'd like to know your reasoning for its superiority over the plastic ones. Does it retain the gold better? And I think a few other guys were curious, too. Thanks, no rush, Joel
  11. Mine (Gold Racer) did a different thing--this detector was used for a month by Keith Southern and I bought it used from his dealer, not knowing that he had it.. I used it for an hour and then the light on the screen and the audio started pulsing rapidly. Sent it to D Electronics. Came back "Fixed". Within 4 seconds of getting it back, the letters "Lo" started flashing like crazy and the battery box was heating up. Called DE--they've sent me some kind of board to re-install in the battery case--"an easy fix". I should know Tues. whether it is the fix or not. So the ? is: Why wasn't it fixed the first time? I think that the technician(s) at Detector Electronics need a lot more training and that the root problem with these detectors has to be figured out. What a pain! If I think it has a clear advantage over the GB2--versatility in finding relics as well as oro--and it quits crapping out, then I'll keep it. Other wise gone with the wind. I hope they can get to the problems' cause. I have a Red Racer--no problems. SL--there are some pretty petty people on Tom's forum. You have a lot of tolerance! Sarcasm and humor, too. Some guys there are very witty. Tom D doesn't get caught up in the personal frictions or opinions or moderate such--he sticks to facts that he can verify.
  12. Who sells these Detech coils for the GPX in the US? Kellyco might, but their website doesn't work for me. Thanks.
  13. Argyle, Thanks for the rundown on these Detech machines. Hopefully the Gold Chaser will have the ground balance issue solved. I got an Ultimate SEF coil for my F19 from Ray that is amazing on a 3 grain nugget--in the air. Still too much snow & muck for real hunting. I like your critical thinking--a lot of people shrug off these frustrating details
