  1. I received the same email. Now a proud owner of a "Slow Monster 1000".
  2. Loving the new look. As always, I think Steve needs a tip jar in the drop down menu. -Mike
  3. Hey Simon. Looks like you got that machine dialed. Good looking gold and scenery. -Mike
  4. Hey Sourdough. I would reach out to Royal Mfg. here in Southern California and see if Robert the owner can make you a custom size fabric screen or order one of his existing products if it fits. The Royal Drywasher and the Gold Buddy are very similar in construction as I have owned both models. Good luck! -Mike www.royalmfgind.com https://www.royalmfgind.com/product/royal-gold-9-7-8x-21-5-8/
  5. Not the best edit....but you get my point! Hope Minelab or Steve doesn't bust my chops for having a little fun...🦧
  6. Looks like Bill and Linda's web page has come to an end....😒
  7. For those of you that don't know me I recently had a severe volume spike in my tinnitus due to my 50% bilateral hearing loss. I've had the ringing for the last 10 years at a very very low tone that was only noticed if I listened for it, now it's on a whole other level. To explain the ringing, it pretty much sounds like the threshold of a GPX on full blast in your head. This weekend I tried to go swinging the Monster and GPX 5000 and found it to be very difficult to concentrate on listening to the machines as my brain was affixed to the ringing in my ears. Im hoping new hearing aids this week w
  8. Steve's Pick Holder is made by a company called Raine Tactical. Any military or law enforcement establishment should have them. I know Jobe Wholesale provides them for prospecting shops. Link attached. http://www.militaryuniformsupply.com/raine-hammer-holder-tool-belt
  9. I'm not much for carry bags for metal detectors but I figured it would be really nice just to throw the Gold Monster in the truck and take off instead of wrapping it up like a precious cargo to head to the desert. I found a Minelab Excalibur bag on eBay and I figured it was big enough and said what the heck and bought it. I'm pretty happy with the way it worked out. And yes that is the new Doc's Gold Monster cover and arm cuff that is the cats meow when it comes to protection for this machine.
  10. I highly recommend Doc's Carbon Fiber shaft for the GPX 5000. The stock upper aluminum shaft weighs 7.4 ounces and the Carbon Fiber shaft weighs 4.3 ounces. It doesn't sound like much difference in weight, but every little ounce shaved off counts and I also do not have an aluminum shaft above the coil causing the machine to lose sensitivity and other issues. -Mike
