  1. wow I can read the screen, unlike the Legend where I have to squint.

    Sad News

    I'm sorry for your loss.
  3. It looks nice but you need a lot of flow to use, and 3 men and boy shoveling all day long. If it was to be used with an excavator, it would only last a couple of weeks at best, the rocks would wear out that Aluminum in no time.
  4. glad they made it lightweight. Anyone know the price
  5. mine is the same, 6 hours of use and 1 or 2 bars left
  6. I was using the legend the other day, I did not get a solid signal but something told me to dig. What I found was a quarter and a nickle next to each other, the legend was trying to block the signal as if it were an iron target, just like iffy with the nail and nickle.
  7. True, lines or zig zags for infill sort of determines strength, sometimes it is trial and error, most of the stuff I print are between 70 -80 % infill, but they can still break, some have broken (cracked) from shipping, I usually just replace for people, message me your address here or ebay, and I will send another.
  8. You do know that sanding and buffing even a small object like that will take 1 - 2 hours. Not sure what you were paid per hour to work, but no one would want to pay my labor rate. I sell many 3d printed items on ebay, 1 in 100 people ask the same without taking in consideration for time. My 3d printed parts are a little smother, but I let my machine rune rather slow. I make the stand Chase gives the link to in the 3rd post as well as pinpointer holsters for the deus
  9. both ideas would be easy to make. https://www.amazon.com/magnet-sheet/s?k=magnet+sheet Then for the round one, just 2 pieces of PVC pipe, the inner one would have magnets glued to it making it easy to remove the black sands
  10. I sell on ebay, and up until this year I had 100%, but for some reason and without contacting me first 2 people bought items for less that $10 and gave me a neg. Usually if someone is not satisfied I give a refund with out questions and do not ask for the item to be returned. Its much like buying from Amazon, a product has 4 1/2 stars, if you read the reviews there is always 1 or 2 people who give the product a 1 star, usually for no reason other than having no common sense. A product may state it is water resistant, and the complainer says he dunked it in water and it stopped working. I've run into more than my share of bumper babies in my lifetime. a bumper baby is someone who was dropped on there head one too many times.
  11. The picture above you is the legend holding the Garrett pinpointer
  12. came within 24 inches of stepping on him, was working in my shop and had walked round my truck to come out the door. 4/8/22
  13. Okay, a little more understood. What if you added a spiral, like a gold wheel, then your heavy's would travel up with less chance of any loss
  14. I can see you turn it by hand, but do not quite understand how it separates gold, a drywasher I've used and understand
  15. My legend came last week, I've used it once. So far I'm impressed, without realizing it I had cranked the sensitivity up to 28, in comparison with my deus I cannot go above 89, the nox was usually at 16-17. The legend was quiet as a mouse, I changed the sensitivity down to 20 after digging 14 inch holes and still not finding the target, this would be okay if it was winter and we had lots of rain, but the Arizona desert leave it almost impossible to dig more than 4-6 inches in any park this time of year without a backhoe.
  16. I think the biggest problem with the ATX is the weight, I keep thinking about buying a minelab SDC2300 and think of how long I kept the ATX (2 months). So for me weight would be the first issue. 1)GPS, not necessary, I always have a hand held with me 2) color screen not necessory 3) either, but external would be easier to change coils 4) coil, 12 inch mono, 10x5 mono 5) 10 ft is fine
  17. it is amazing what can be made with a 3d printer. I've had my Ridgid table saw for 25 years and always hated how the fence would not align, then one day I was watching youtube and someone had an idea for a newer model, now mine is better than the factory. From metal detectors to shop tools it has been a great learning tool.
  18. Bipod_XP_DEUSV2-cap.stl Minelab_TOP.stl Bipod_XP_DEUSV2.stl GM 1000V2.stl
  19. Looking at accepted files, STL files are accepted as well as zip
  20. I designed a bi-pod for both the deus and GM100, after printing one I found them to be a nuisance getting in the way , if you want my files for either on of those I will put them on google drive, the other stand for the Deus I sell on ebay, but they sell as soon as I list them
