  1. I LOVE that outfit man LOVE IT ! I gotta get this stuff done to mine I just scanned over real quick as to get out there ping’n so I’ll talk later but yeah love that camo !
  2. The back of your finger nail will seat it good carefully not to hard
  3. Ok I put this on fast and sloppy just to see if it’s gonna do the job and if I like it I’ll know tomorrow if it’s gonna pass quality control! LOL
  4. OK , I got my EQ800 out and cleaned it today wishing I had a cover to protect the head ….. my mind is ALWAYS thinking and paying attention to detail ( I’m a tool and die guy so you can imagine the struggle sometimes with perfection LOL ) SOO I came up with this , PRESS-N-SEAL cling wrap ! You can apply it like a screen protector and it wouldn’t leave a residue when you take it off and it’s thicker fir dig protection ( I need that bad apparently…… ) and guess what ? I think one application will last a good while and you can probably get hundreds out of a 5$ role …! COOL OR WHAT !! ( my arm is hurting from trying to pat my own back LOL . Pics of the final outcome soon. I’m thinking I’ll just poke a hole for every hole that’s for the speaker apply it , ( I think just your thumb rolling over it like your taking a finger print impression will work for good clear seal - I’ll find out soon ! Ps I don’t proof read all the time so if something sounds stupid read between the lines .
  5. How y’all doing? I appreciate you working with me and I know this question is going to start a frenzy or the opposite in reaction of here we go again probably but I gotta ask - -I been detecting for several years but haven’t got as serious as I’m about to ! - I’ll be hunting in Kentucky dirt and around the natural lake beach’s in like creek sand not beach sand ( locals call them beach’s but it’s just creek sand in abundance by the lake shore for people to swim and dream of the real beach LOL. - I plan on spending around 6-800$ give or take a little. - what’s the best detector I can buy to concentrate on lost gold and silver jewelry….. if I have to pick one let it be gold . I want to concentrate on finding lost gold jewelry. Period. If there are other coin snd relic options on it then I’ll use them probably but I stress gold jewelry lost in the Kentucky ground. Can we decide on one that’s best for that ? Again thank you very much I appreciate yalls time and I will be an avid member for videos and stories. Just saying your comments are taken seriously. Thanks again
  6. Well I been out several times now with the ML-EQ800 and I’ll say this …….. I GIT’N IT ! , im git’n it …. That said - I got couple questions. Does this hold true ( first pic ) it seems it is for the most part- I can see now getting use to it that on good clear pings this is right . I haven’t found any gold or silver jewelry yet but SO FAR it seems I bout got the coins down! I’m getting to where I can call them now all except for the nickels . ON EVERY QUARTER AND PENNY I dig I’m waiting for it to be a big nice gold and diamond ring tho ! I’m pretty sure thats the range they for the most part fall into . Seems on Park1 between 19 and 25 maybe 28 I’ll get the pennies and quarts ( flat quarters I think may be higher ) ok so what y’all think the question I had goes with the first pick the second pic is yesterday morning’s learning session #2 pic and today’s finds was the same except I had less trash and more quarters and dimes )
  7. Thanks for the reply guys - well it just seems the one I had 15 yrs ago was more quality and seemed I never had any problems- that said I gave the benefit of the doubt and been out with it a few more times . I THINK , it was me …….. I’ve had better luck with it but I will say this - the 12$ ( copy ) beats it on small gold like ear rings ( very small ) the cheap one I got seems to be a pretty nice one actually - although I been using the Garrett I’m saving the cheap one for back up . Idk I’ll probably just go on with it lol maybe they are just smarter than I am now uh days ! Lol
  8. Well I got a new pro pointer and it’s acting like this - - just like it should work - the “I’m getting closer” only goes to about 1/2 the speed it should when literally touching the target . - won’t do anything - won’t stop hardly. - had me digging to China for no reason at all . ( even after a re-tune ) that said , my friend pointed out the fact that the cereal number inside by the battery is not there - only a cereal number on the back ( wondering if it’s a B- quality pro pointer ? Any help I appreciate it ! OH and I bought it to be knew off eBay and it did come in the box sealed in plastic so IDK🤦‍♂️

    Hey man , THANK YOU ALL ! I REALLY appreciate the time and effort to help me out with yalls knowledge that hopefully I’ll soon have I’m learning, learned a lot ( thanks to minelab’s simple and easy to understand instructions ! ) in the past couple days ! THAT SAID , I made a choice and acted on it and picked up my new NOX 800 ! See there I’m already talking like a minelab specialist ! LOLOL . I’m working right now on a great test field to really have a lot of examples! So I’m going to finish that and take my mental nots on sounds then discriminate just a little THEN IM HITTING THE LOCAL FAIR GROUNDS in which we just had our fair so maybe I can go find some lost gold ! I’ll keep y’all posted and maybe a couple videos IF I feel like making a fool of myself as I’m not one to do the whole video Facebook stuff I think it’s silly as much crap that’s on there but each their own and I have no problems with it as long as a good man keeps striving to be a good man ! ( or girl LOL ) . Thank again y’all ide hang around but I gotta go do some testing and some careful discrimination ! Later , talk to y’all tonight or tomorrow!

    I appreciate yalls time ! I’m thinking around 800-900$ is what I’m gonna spend but of course if I can get by cheaper then I will - I’m finding a lot about gold detectors but it seems they are talking about gold nuggets and not so much as jewelry - are they the same when detecting ? I’m guessing not because low karats are mixed metals - - when I say the beaches around here in Ky I’m talking about hmmm how to explain- not our Gulf of Mexico beaches I’m talking about course like rocky lake sand like in creeks. Does that make sense ? Does it make a difference? Are the two different sands alike in metal detecting ? I know I’m asking a lot and I don’t want to aggravate anybody trust me I’m only trying to find the best lost gold jewelry detector I can get for mostly Kentucky landscape . I been metal detecting for several years but I’m only just trying to get serious with them her lately and I really need someone by my side saying-( now see there ! Hear the difference there ? See that ? That’s what your looking for , dig that ! ) I’m not dumb I’m a tool and die maker / certified machinist with what I like to think of having a level head LOL so if any of that info helps maybe I can set my sights on one I’m ready to buy or trade . I have a Fisher F44 like new with the DD coil and the Garrett pro pointer and stuff . Ide like to sell that and maybe buy something more suited for lost jewelry. Thanks alot people I appreciate your input !
  13. How ya doing y’all I’m from Ky and it’s simple ( I think I know where this is going to go but I’ll say it ) I’m looking for the best scrap GOLD detector for hunting for jewelry lost around old lake beaches and parks. Any help with that would be absolutely great ! Thanks y’all I appreciate it already !
