  1. Steve's right, there are no armored cars at a funeral, don't cancel your dreams due to stupid decisions in D.C., just modify how you make the dreams become reality. PS: Your sig says you're in Utah, heck, you're almost here already. Jen
  2. I spoke with Doc last night and again this morning, he's out of the office at the moment and recommends you order it on Ebay or his website (link below) or Amazon search Nugget Stalker on Amazon, or email him at docsdetecting@gmail.com. I can tell you that when I order from his site or the other methods above, it's shipped out within 24 hours and I get it within a similar time frame... hope that helps, just go to his site and order online. https://docsdetecting.com/ Jen
  3. No point after Howard's stunt, why bother and yea, the signature was from all the Bundy & Cokes I drank when he introduced said law... LOL (that was the license number before i masked it if I recall correctly).
  4. Some of us who lived in Australia in 1996 think of the phrase "Port Arthur" in a different, more negative tone, the tragedy that occurred, the loss of life and the complete gutting of our gun rights and theft of our weapons (buy back my A&S), so it's very nice to see ABC doing this report that allows Port Arthur to have some positive thoughts for those of us who've been negatively impacted, (ABC posted this video today). PS: Toth is my maiden name and I lived there (In Paradise Waters/Surfers Paradise, QLD) during the massacre, it's nice to see a more positive spin on Port Arthur, one day we'll have closure.
  5. Ahhhh come on now.... prospecting in Canada's not so bad... granted our lay flat does get a little brittle and explode like a length of dynamite, and the ice does tend to get a tad thick but you learn to adapt, the levels are low, the natural riffles are showing and you can't beat the scenery. PS: And no, those were not appropriate winter gloves... LOL, those were my duty gloves, I was a member of the RCMP for a period of time in BC and didn't have proper gloves in the truck when I took this picture.
  6. Great US source for Anderson plugs and other related leads... https://powerwerx.com/ They also make some great prebuilt Anderson adapter cables: https://powerwerx.com/adapter-extension-cables
  7. HA!!!!!!! What did I tell you yesterday, get your ass back over to the burn barrel? I brought you luck.
  8. You look like you're up in that shale up in Imlay Canyon Gerry... you keep out of that area, the hills have eyes man, I've seen them and you know what they say about our real pretty mouths.... 😉 Good job... nice piece..... just sold my 6000 today and sent him a link to your video. Jen
  9. I'm sure he'll post about it but will someone please call the AU Fish & Game, Gerry's taking undersize again... put that stuff back Gerry.... LOL https://www.facebook.com/1561969989/videos/991165008278124/ Jen
  10. Jump on a flight and head down to Vegas, rent a car and drive an hour and you'll be on the gold fields producing stuff like this... https://www.prospectingaustralia.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?id=32966 Yes I know the link's been posted previously potential Karen's, no need to remind me.. simply expressing to Klunker that he's never far from gold, regardless of the weather. 😉 The only limiting factor is you and how much desire you have to succeed. Jen
  11. It's not gold related, nor is it coin and relic but a lot of us also search for space rocks... talk about pennies from heaven... Jen It's
  12. Yes they probably are, but for the little value it added to the thread to correct them as well as the public shaming of them for their error, I didn't feel it was worth doing and served no value other than negative, thank you for doing it for me. Yes, at least in the photo Gerry is referring to seeing, which has Joshua Tree's that is probably what he meant..... See.. zero value add, but thank you none the less for your <fingers doing air quotes>valuable<fingers doing air quotes> contribution to the thread. 😜
  13. When using headphones, I use Sennheiser HD 598's, they're GREAT as they let a little bit of external audio come through (great for bears, cougars (no not the martini drinking ones), and snakes) while at the same time cutting out wind noise. Highly recommended. I use them either plugged in direct or through a Steel Phase SP01. https://en-us.sennheiser.com/audio-headphones-high-end-surround-sound-hd-598 Jen
  14. Thank you for this, it doesn't affect me as I only buy NF and I buy direct from Chris at AZO for said coils. I had a defective out of the box 25" DD that I sent back and had a replacement from Chris within a couple days (he sent the new one back right away before getting the defective one back). Your post and my experience has shown me it's always best to buy from a reputable dealer or if used, a trustworthy forum board member if possible. The used NF's I've purchased from members have all been flawless... it's a good community. I was in Bendigo at a dealers house one day and saw a Chinese clone GPX 5000 and it was crazy how identical it looked.... till you turned it on... LOL Takeaway... you won't get warranty service like this from a clone/Chinese product. Jen
  15. I was just about to say "oh here we go again" LOL... Thanks Steve
  16. This shot really jumped out at me as they didn't bother trimming the legs off the threshold potentiometer and it was so close to ground potential at the case/case shielding junction point.... but I'm taking the topic off topic, that was a 4500, not a 6000... but I just wanted to add my personal experience to JP's statement about them stepping up and going above and beyond (as did both Steve and JP).
  17. Oh that's right... I totally forgot all those details... that's wild.... thanks for filling in the missing info Steve...so the warranty that was covered was because you'd just had it in for the upgrade... ok... makes sense.... My feelings still stand, once I cracked it open, regardless of my reasoning, they could have denied it plain and simple and for not doing that, they have my eternal gratitude. Jen
  18. Thanks JP, appreciate the response..... great point re man vs aut, I'll have to give it a go more in the auto settings and see how it does.. . feel free to augment your post after watching the vid if you have anything else to add, your opinion is always important to myself and others I'm sure. Jen
  19. I can vouch for what JP states here from personal experience. Back in November 2008 (I just looked at the receipt, damn time flies), I purchased a 4500 from Steve, his personal machine which left his office in Alaska in working condition, sadly after several trips to the gold fields it became apparent it was not working properly. Knowing it was out of warranty and having nothing to lose, I cracked it open as I could hear stuff floating around inside.... white vibration dampening material and a couple solder balls had broken free in the trip from Alaska to the BC gold fields where I was at the time, the components now being loose on the board and solder floating around caused MASSIVE noise and made it unusable. In the 4th pic you can see a short piece of loose wire etc. It also had some issues with a brown substance that appeared to be possibly leaking caps causing RF leakage issues or solder paste splatter from the flow solder process, you can see one solder ball loose on the board. Overall, as you can see by all the photos, it was a mess, components barely on the board etc and probably never should have left the factory.... but it did and it worked great for Steve and he had no idea of the issues. I discussed it on a forum we were all on at the time, both JP and Steve helped make Minelab aware of it, I drove it to Seattle on my next trip down (I was commuting between Vancouver, BC and Seattle for Boeing at the time) and sent it to Vegas where Minelab was at the time and it was covered 100%. This item was WAAAAAAAAAAAAY outside warranty, I'd opened it up and shown pictures of my opening it.. clearly they had EVERY reason to justifiably say nick off.... but they didn't.... they were GREAT.. now granted I had some pretty heavy knee cappers standing behind me holding bats in the form of Steve and JP but I was VERY impressed by the way this was handled.... and I've never looked back on being a Minelab owner since then and never will... they will ALWAYS be my NUMBER 1 choice for detector gear, gold or otherwise. Including most of the photos for those interested in what it looks like inside of a GPX machine but are too smart to take yours apart like I did.. LOL This was a fluke.... probably the first machine of the day on a solder flow table that wasn't up to full temp yet... the takeaway here is... Minelab owned it, without even TRYING to make excuses or say it was out of warranty for time or opening issues.... and I have rewarded that many times in subsequent purchases and will forever be indebted to both Steve and JP for helping me get this visible to the right people in the firm. Jen
  20. Hi JP, what are your thoughts on this issue I mentioned in another thread, it appears that the delta between running thresh and not is a bit too wide on the opening of the front end or audio chain (akin to the squelch set to high on a radio), have you seen this in your dealings? From what I see here, there's a serious risk of a miss running no thresh as you suggested, has this improved? Thanks Jen
  21. ... yea, and leave more room for me on mine.. LOL (agree 100%, about knowing the limits of my own personality I mean)... I just turned down a job offer with the DOD in DC, not because it wouldn't be a cool job, but because I'm smart enough to know my lack of filtering would have me in Gitmo within 48 hours... LOL
  22. While not gem related, one of my favorite Youtubers had a series a while back on finding an old sluice box that had been left in an old hydraulic site.... just think of the possibilities...
  23. Thanks.. my vote is for all the women AND men out there who never show their gold on the forums... they're the ones who are cleaning up...... 🙂
