  1. My best non nugget find was more of a load. During a drought in central TX a popular local swimming area went dry. It's an old low water crossing through the river bed. I detected 4 days straight probably 6 to 8 hrs a day. There was no water flow and the water that was there was hot and full of dead fish. Yummy! I used my Minlab Excalibur 800, Etrac and AT Gold. I stunk, BAD! I would do it again in a heartbeat.

  2. What everyone else said too, but odds are the original culprit was a touch of corrosion at the switch / wiring juncture.. It only took a tiny bit of moisture to set things in motion.. Pounding on the door panel early on would usually knock enough rust loose to let things work a while longer, but eventually you'd need to clean things up.. This fix used to be an easy task, untilllllll.................................... ..."they" started using plastic fake screws (push pin thingies) to hold the panels on and totally doing away with any hangers, replaced furing or metal connector strips to s

  3. Got a new to me Van today , 1994 Chevy G20 , seems power windows are not working , nor are the power locks...any ideas as to where I should start looking. Hope to make a little camper out of it.

  4. I used a local source on some of my first specimens but stopped after I had to ask for the gold that dropped out of the rock during the HF bath. "Oh, you wanted that gold as well?". Uh, yeah, that 3 grams would be nice to have. Also, used tongs on the specimen as it was retrieved from the solution, knocking even more gold from the piece.

  5. Since both power lock and windows are inop I would start with the fuses as well. Be aware though...those window winding motors have been going up and down for 25 years! The motors will start to draw more amperage as they wear and that extra draw tends to shorten the life of the switches. 1) Check fuses. Blown fuse can indicate a defective actuator motor or damaged wiring. 2) Check for battery voltage(ignition on) and ground at the back of the drivers door switch cluster with a multimeter. Post back here and I'll try and talk you through further diagnosis.

  6. OEM "anything" is always going to be a lot more expensive than aftermarket parts that are manufactured by a third party. ;-) I'm one of the people using Chet's adapter on my Monster with velcro straps to help keep the strain off of the jacks - at both ends. I love it!!! And yes, the price is VERY reasonable. I think I had probably already spent at least two or three times Chet's price on adapters I bought and tried from several different sources - that didn't work! I didn't want to go hacking and cutting into my Monster or fiddling around with adapters anymore - I just needed something

  7. To be honest, im pretty sure it goes back and forth between 2 folks. Ive seen both parties comment on posts the other has made. Im pretty sure it started with the shooting of bottles. Im sure we can all get along here and enjoy each other's company. Just a thought.

  8. Hi Oregal1976 ask me to check in; I am retired and don’t have a business so I have been custom making a few adapters for friends. They are good quality and work fine with all high impedance/resistance headphones. It is not a simple mechanical or wiring task. I install small resisters inside the connectors to adapt/match the impedance required by the Gold Monster circuity. With the cost of parts and not valuing my labor very high I can sell them at $20 dollars plus $5 for packaging and postage. That is normal US 1st class shipping rate which may take about a w

  11. Does your van still have multiple belts or had they gone to single serpentine by then..? Regardless.. I don't know chit about a/c, but there is one thing I can tell you: The clutch does not necessarily need to cycle in order for a/c to blow cold.. N got a '99 Astro van a couple years ago.. The a/c was blowing cold at that time but slowly was losing its charge.. I got a can to add and noticed the clutch wasn't engaging and the on-can gauge was in the red.. I still finished putting the charge in, and the a/c got cold.. Since then I need to add a can about every six months.. The clutch hasn'

  12. check battery connections first. me 1998 chev tahoe had 250,000 miles on it me got it march 2018. start switch had to jiggle it to start, replaced it. rear tail lights quit working. replaced circuit boards. have over 18,000 miles on it, runs great, heater works great, airconditioning quit on me last may, no problem, damp towel around the neck works just as good.

  13. Its an older rig so i would definitely check the wiring in the door jam. Lots of opening and closing on them doors. But check fuses first.

  15. Did you guys read the article? This new law is meant to reduce the overall number of animals that end up dying in shelters. It's also meant to discourage despicable people who attempt to make a living off of breeding dogs and cats. It specifically targets pet stores selling animals from 'puppy mills'. Not private sales. I think it's a good thing.

  16. Gold cube works very well to make a smaller consentrate. Then use quicksilver for amalgamation in just a few minutes. Forget panning

  17. Hi Rob The people that I have sold to have all used a Velcro strap around the handle or body to keep the strain off of the 1/8” jack. All bets are off on that occasional fall that some of us experience. LOL Have a good day, Chet

  18. Gold does not rust at all - but iron does, including pyrite, which is an iron sulfide. The rock is stained inside and out with rusty iron stain - with the most intense stain being right up against your "unknown" mineral. Sorry. Its pyrite, not gold.

  19. Nice find! looks like you found the end of a rainbow. There is a lot of mineralization in this rock. Pyrite for sure, then other minerals that I cannot ID from the photos provided.

  21. Welcome to the forum, feel welcome to post any other bones you may find, you might have better luck posting bones in the Hunting, Fishing, Guns and Such forum section since a hunter may have more knowledge on types of bones, but it's no problem posting them in this section. While Adam is a valuable and knowledgeable member he tends to get bored and no telling what he may post sometimes.

  22. Found this a few years back in Nevada. It was under a bunch of cedar duff and still has the bullet in the chamber. It is a Maynard Carbine .50 cal

  23. I collect zeolites when I can find them. I've found some Thomsonite but nothing as nice or large as your specimens. The ones I found were all small clear single crystals on matrix. Yours appears to be Thomsonite-Sr rather than Thomsonite-Ca? Here are some Mesolite clusters with white Chabazite cubes I collected in New Mexico. Both are zeolites. I know where there are a lot of these quality specimens but they are so delicate they are difficult to recover. The one pictured was destroyed when someone blew on it.
