  1. Is there anywhere on this site that has the research or post made from Reg Sniff pertaining to TDI depth in relation to battery voltage? I remember somewhere that stated the reason the original TDI had greater depth capabilities was the increased voltage of the batteries not necessarily the model number. It also had information in relations to voltage limits/performance issues. Just thought I'd ask.
  2. I just purchased a TDI SL special edition. The unit came with the Miner John 8x12". It seems to do OK at the beach but leaves me wondering if another coil could do better. Not overly concerned about finding all the tiny bits. Also I find the walking pace when using the 12" mono, for complete coverage, is a challenge for me on the beach.
  3. i ordered some 3.7v battery's my question is the Balance boards .. will this board work fine for me https://www.banggood.com/3Pcs-4S-30A-14_8V-Li-ion-Lithium-18650-Battery-BMS-Packs-PCB-Protection-Board-Balance-p-1191042.html?gmcCountry=US&currency=USD&createTmp=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIkP3vjbbD4AIVwdHACh0vjQInEAEYASABEgJZ_vD_BwE&cur_warehouse=CN also these are the batterys im getting 18650 battery Rechargeable High Drain Battery Voltage: 3.7V Storage Voltage: 3.7-3.9V Charging Cut-off Voltage: 4.2V Discharge Cut-off Voltage: 2.5V Capacity: 4000mAh Size: 18.0*65.0mm Weight: 50g Battery top: Flat top
  4. Just thought I'd share the settings I use when I'm out hunting for gold in Australia. First setting: General gold detecting Set pulse delay to 10' Ground balance in ALL as best as you can' between the high and low tone. Flick into LOW and sweep the coil if your getting ground noises which I generally do just turn the GB up half a notch' so from 9 go to 9.5, if need be you can go a full notch without any huge loss on depth or sensitivity' this should now allow you to use full gain. Dig all high tone responces and listen carefully. Just note that running Low you will only find gold up to about 7-10grams If you still continue to get strange sounds that you can't ignore by advancing the GB setting, try the the GB process all over again but at 12 pulse delay. Second setting: large deep items When Using HIGH set pulse delay at 15-20' ground balance in ALL as best as possible' it will actually be a lot smoother because of the pulse delay setting' flick into HIGH, to remove any ground noise you now "reduce" the GB setting a little say from 6 go to 5. In High you will only detect targets the machine thinks are high conductive and any gold over about 7 grams, don't be concerned about loosing small gold you won't detect it anyway so in this setting run big coils and Use full Gain if possible. Dig all repeatable low tone responces if it turns out to be ground noise reduce the GB setting more up to about 2 notches from the original GB setting or do the GB process again but at a higher pulse delay. This setting will go deep expect big holes. Set the frequency correctly if you can't, use the machine away from EMI but generally the TDI doesn't suffer that bad. Iv found heaps of gold with the first setting so it does work well' but I'm yet to find a massive nugget with the second setting but the deep items I'm digging up shows one will be gold hopefully soon. Hope it helps.
  5. I have had my TDI BH for 2 months now and was wondering if a mono coil would get more depth and less sensitivity to small targets namely lead bullets than the stock Dual Field. Where I hunt there are a lot and they sound good but fall through the holes in my scoop { 10 mm}
  6. Has anyone else that’s using the supplied hip/chest mount pouch had issues with it splitting. My first one started within days and Whites sent me a replacement. First time out yesterday with the new one and it’s spliitting by the netting. Its not the design or the stitching, it’s the poor quality material used. They really should’ve used terylene or something stronger
  7. Have been reading past treads from Steve H., Reg Snift, and others concerning modification that could be added to the TDI, TDI PRO, and TDI SL. One was a Li ion battery pack to up the voltage. I can do that. Another was to change a couple caps (c20 and c21) to .22 mf and change a couple op amps. Sounded like Reg would do some for a price. Then sounded like Reid Mann in Virginia would do them. Then the VP from Whites came on the forum asking for feedback. I forget his name but think he just retired , anyway, his final answer sounded like he would have this mod. incorporated into the new TDI SL future production. This was a year or two back. Now my question, Do you know if this mod. has been installed in the new TDI SL that fedex is supposed to deliver to me tomorrow? If not since I'm a retired electronic tech. I could install myself if Reg had given a little more information. If no one has or are willing to give out, do you know anyone that installs the mod. for a price? Thanks, Joe
  8. I enjoy the DetectorComparison videos, he does a good job. Some not new but solid tips at the end of the video.
  9. Just thought I'd post this............. I now run a 14.8v pack (4 x 18650 cells in series) which gives me a 7 hour run time. My previous version used loose cells in a holder but I wasn't happy with that. I made up a battery lead that connects directly to the battery compartment contacts with small brass "screw terminal" connectors soldered with 22AWG wire. A bit fiddly to hook up (long and narrow screw driver needed to tighten the two terminal screws) but very secure and + - leads well apart to avoid a short. I may put in place a rubber divider that further separates the +- battery contacts but the screw connectors are quite secure. The battery pack fits in snugly and does not move around at all. I deliberately made the wire lead long enough so the battery can be unplugged with the excess lead bundled inside the battery compartment. Tony
  10. ...is that you can chest or hip mount the control box using the included pouch. The TDI BeachHunter is already the lightest weight waterproof ground balancing pulse induction (GBPI) detector on the market at 5.2 lbs. It is also the only GBPI model that comes ready to hip or chest mount. If you chest or hip mount the control box all you are swinging is the rod and coil at about 2 lbs. Nice! Note that the coil on the TDI BeachHunter is hardwired to the control box. Use care not to bend and stress the connection point to the control box as it could lead to premature failure of the coil cable.

  18. Tom, I have a brand new (3 spoke centre mount) 10" coil hand built by Eric Foster that I would like to have installed onto my TDI Beach Hunter. Is this something I could have White's do for me to maintain warranty? If so, could you PM me on cost and anything else I should consider. I find the 12" Dual Field just a bit too big for water hunting. Thanks for any help, Tony
  19. Published on Jan 18, 2019 by White's Electronics, Inc. Can your P.I. detector discriminate iron? If you have a TDI the answer is yes it can!
  20. Daniel Teague Published on Dec 5, 2018 Some of you guys were curious as to the tone differences between a Minelab GPX and Whites TDI. This is the GPX 4800 and TDI Beachhunter and a little bit of why I like the GPX better when it comes to relic and beach hunting.
  21. So my brother who has been detecting for 20 years has only recovered 1 gold ring and that ended up in a museum in England. I promised him if he used the new White's TDI "DEEP" Beach Hunter the whole time on our hunt that he'd find more than 1 gold ring. Not only did he do that, but he also recovered the best ring of the trip, this monster Emerald, diamond and yellow gold beauty. Hats off to you Travis for not giving up on those deep signals. Folks, the TDI Beach Hunter is a Pulse Induction detector and it goes much deeper than standard machines. Plus it runs smoother than most in salt water and is simple to use...just turn it on, set the knobs and go. One of the cool features of the TDI beach Hunter is the Tone Identification system that allows you to decide if you want to dig the High Tone Only, which gives you a greater chance of gold and platinum rings, or the Low Tones which are usually most coins. This feature alone saves time as you will end up digging DEEP. One other thing to have, a good Deep Beach Scoop.
  22. Silver or pure gold is low ton in TDI beach huner, but other low ton railways. Beach Hunter is wrong with TDI Pro? TDI Pro is not low ton.How do you set up the others?
  23. Interesting to recover so many religious medals on 1 trip but "Faith" was on our side. The best of the 5 is the yellow gold with diamonds in the middle, but I have to give credit to my brother as he saved that one. The sterling pieces are very nice as is the other ones of lesser metal, but with the same powerful meaning. The TDI Beach Hunter did its job and I have faith this machine will do well for many. Steve, If you feel this post needs to be in the Jewelry Forum, I understand. Some folks do not feel religion wear is jewelry..so I walk softly.
  24. I may have an opportunity to buy a Whites TDI SL with two rechargeable NINH batteries, one AA battery pack, jimmy sierra elliptical dual field mono coil, miner john elliptical waterproof coil, 2 large TDI round open coils, and a Whites padded carry bag/case. Would it be worth buying since I have an Equinox 800 and a Teknetics G2? He's asking $750.
