  1. Doc, Rubber coating is better than buying a new one every couple months... , but then again, they probably give a little bit of profit per sale to the sellers... Dave
  2. Morlock, Robert Verish has a martian meteorite classified called Los Angeles, found in California somewhere.
  3. Nice design doc on armcuff cover.... I have broken a many ferrite Rings by throwing them down.... what I have found to stop them breaking is wrap them in electrical tape, I havent had one break yet, and toss them down on the ground... dave.
  4. Nice Meeting up with you Chris, and meeting up with Roy and Cody also. Its been years since being in the Randsburg area prospecting, and I have to admit if you ever need lead, I know where to go , I hiked up a long wash all the way to the top of a large hill, with no trails or roads in sight, and almost at the end of the wash, about 3/4 of the way up the large hill, about 3 feet down, wammo a spark plug.... I look around and go NO "F'n" WAY !!!! It took me an hour, several waterfalls, huge boulders, ect, and there is a spark plug probably from the 80's up here.... but we also explored, off roading, butterflies and flowers just everywhere from the rains, the desert actually looked gorgeous. The last day there, I switched tactics, only digging deep faint targets, search the banks, bends, dips, ect. Nope forget that.... hehe... That just wore me out digging 3 foot holes for lead. I have to give it to the California guys, even though I am a migrant from Southern Cali also .... If you want a good workout, go detect Southern California, or even Northern California, as I have done that a few times also.... Detecting Nevada and Arizona, I have to say, I have it easy, and that is even with Patton , and the military shooting up the desert for training.... Good seeing old friends, and hanging in the desert, would show some gold to everyone, but got mr stinky on my back, hehe... Until next time, Dave
  5. Like Mike Said Mike Steighler has mapped the strewn field. He shows a lot of his finds on facebook. I have found a few pieces, but only a few grams. I believe the largest piece Mike has found is 180 grams or somewhere in that range. ITs getting almost impossible to find any now, as it was a small strewn field area. The Metbul is correct on the location, as almost 90 % of other classification locations on the metbul are bogus... Dave
  6. Looks similar to the Humbug Claims... nice gold great finds... The San Bernardino Wash Meteorites are right next to that Gold Crown Mine also... Dave
  7. No Way Man Dragonhead Nugget....
  8. Frank, hope your ticker gets better dude !!! I hope you havent quit.... The nugget you just found is HUGE !!! Congrats... Dave
  9. It looks like a Campo Del Cielo meteorite, a lot of them are sold online and at the Tucson show. Nice looking iron... Dave
  10. Uncle Ron I believe has found a lot of the Wickenburgs, you might want to compare it with the ones he found... congrats on a find. Dave.
  11. Eric, That sounds like an great time at ASU, so much to see and learn... thanks for sharing. Dave
  12. Chromium, Chromite, .... look up on google images.
  13. Hey I remember you !!!! You were the guy that found a nice big meteorite and sold it to those pawn star guys on TV. .... call me back again sometime dude, the voicemail you left with your new number broke up real bad, and couldnt make it out... Dave.
  14. Real Nice gold !!! Good day out for you guys.. way to go. Dave
  15. Congrats on your 4500... its a good machine. Lots to learn on it. I had a 2200, then upgraded to a 5000, now using a 7000. When I was hunting the Johnnie area near Pahrump in Nevada, using the 5000, I would use sensitive extra 99% of the time, fixed ground balance, search mode deep, use mono coils. There is more, but you adjust to your liking. Good luck hope it finds you some good gold. Dave
  16. His other videos, hes pulling Platinum, Rubies, and Diamonds the size of your fist from the same river.... A very lucky guy ....
  17. Bill, These are not bluetooth, so no. There is the option to buy the transmitter and receiver so you can use your own headphones with a 1/4" headphone jack, or the company also sell their own transmitter, and headphones in which you have to use their headphone only. Dave
  18. Bill, I have the Quest Wirefree Mate- Wireless Transmitter and Receiver. Its 2.4 Ghz Freq, not bluetooth, and the latency is .06 seconds. I think the Equinox built in latency is .40 seconds. There are youtube videos on it... you have to order online, dont think bestbuy has them Dave
  19. There is a strewn field map of the area, held by certain old time meteorite hunters. A lot of videos on the area were removed back in the day when the blm was threatening regulations/ taxing meteorites, and there was even a raid on a certain meteorite dealer. Since all that happened years ago, its been tight lipped since. Dave
  20. Rick, Just saw this post, here is one, dont know if you have this pic... Dave
  21. Emailed them the recommendation Bill... ICMA 3286 Dave
  22. Great finds ... congrats... love that old compass. Dave
  23. Congrats , now there will be more in the future !!! Dave
  24. Thanks Mitchel, No meteorites, this area has never produced any meteorites that I know of. It's way away from Franconia area. Dave
