  1. Looks like the top is a railroad spike hammer and the second item is the mechanism for a hand crank ice cream maker. Large iron can be some really nice items.
  2. Nel and CORS Labs coils have the same parent company. The CORS coils should still be available.
  3. I know somebody is making a new 18" BigFoot style coil for multiple detectors but I'm having trouble find out who. I'd like to see some reports of performance, etc. A little help please. Thanks Tom
  4. 1. Equinox Super Pro 1000 Plus 2. Deus 3 3. Racer 3 Professional 4. Apex 17 5. Whites Treasure Master Classic III IDX Eagle Vision
  5. I'd sure never want to buy any of his used detectors "hundreds and hundreds of times with the Simplex" In 45 years of detecting, I've never found a need to drop or throw a detector. Just sayin'
  6. Excellent video! Thanks for taking the time to put it together. I've had all your test detectors with the exception of the Apex. I love the Deus with the two HF coils in the iron but the Racer 2 with that OOR coil (and the 3X6 Snake) is really tough to beat in the worst iron infested sites.
  7. I've never had to do a factory reset switching coils on my Nox 800. The Id's remain the same no matter which coil I use, 11, 5x10 or the 6". Maybe I got a good one.
  8. Brian, I've been using the 5x10 since they first became available. I was lucky and got in on the first shipment to the U.S. I haven't noticed any forward sweet spot, it pinpoints very accurately using the pinpoint feature and/or Xing the spot. Separation is better than the 11" as to be expected but lacks just a little bit of depth. I think better depth than the 6" which is excellent for that small of a coil. Mine hasn't come off since I got it. I like the lighter weigh over the 11" also. I think you'll be wishing you had gotten it sooner. Good Luck Tom
  9. Tom, I found that as long as the "find" is totally submerged in the Peroxide, it can be safely zapped over and over without having to remove it from the microwave. You just can't have exposed metal in the microwave. This makes the operation much quicker.
  10. Brian- I'd put that coin Cookie/Phoenix button in some Hydrogen Peroxide and nuke it in the microwave. On bronze, brass, copper coins it causes them to fizz like an alka seltzer and pushes the crud off without damaging the coin. shallow dish with just enough HP to cover the button. Zap for about 30 seconds or until the HP boils. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and zap again. Al long as there is no metal exposed you can zap it as many times as necessary. A tooth brush between zaps will help.
  11. Great finds Brian! I also think your find is part of a Chinese lock. PS. Tom sent me a map of your hunt sites so I should be seeing you out there shortly. Thanks again Tom. Tom
  12. I have found I have much better results by cutting out the plastic spring and replacing it with two small screws, two nuts, and a small metal spring.
  13. "I've not seen anything from XP that's cheaply made" You must have forgotten about that Robust Coil charging clip. 😁
  14. Steve, I managed to find a manual for the Gold Demon but thanks for getting back to me on it. Tom
