  1. Hey gang all backorders are filled. Bill should have his stock in a couple of days This was just a fraction of the production run. But I had enough shipped by air because I know so many people have been waiting. The balance are coming by boat. Here's the instructions for those of you that want an understanding of the meticulous attention to detail that went into this cover. Special thanks goes to the President of Minelab, Peter Charlesworth, who assisted me along the way with advise, suggestions and gave a thumbs up on the unique blue camo material. By the way the weight for the entire cover set, which consists of 5 pieces is under 8 ounces. There is the main body cover, the arm cuff cover, the arm cuff strap, the head cover, and a detachable shade cover for the head cover. Installation instructions for Nugget Stalker GPX6000 cover. Doc
  2. The back of the cover folds down and yes there is mesh over the speaker. Doc
  3. So you are waiting patiently for your new GPX6000 machine to be released into your sweaty little hands. $6000 for this amazing little piece of technology and you're just going to let it lay around in the dirt? No! Of course not! You're going to pre-order one of Doc's Nugget Stalker® Brand covers. $129.95. 4 pieces counting the removable shade cover. The entire cover package only weighs 8.5 ounces. Just like the GPX6000 these covers will be in short supply initially, so don't delay, be the first to get in line. (I will probably bring in 200 by air to get the ball rolling but the bulk of the thousands I have being made will have to come by boat, and that is going to be a long time consuming process because of the boats being so backed up.) I just read that Los Angeles usually processes 10 freight boats a day and has 2 anchored off shore waiting their turn. Now they are processing 15 a day and have 35 waiting off shore. So call Bill today and get your order in. Bill is one of my premiere Nugget Stalker® dealers. By the way, we have our Nugget Stalker® picks back in stock. Bill has those as well. They are premium made hardened steel heads, ash handles, 24 inches overall, 12 inch long by approx 6 inch wide blade. Made in the U.S.A. Includes super magnet screwed to the head. $99.95 Thank you, Doc
  4. You know another name for Nugget Shooter? I mean besides Bill Southern. I mean what do you call guys and gals that like to spend all their time investigating those darn elusive nuggets and trying to sneak up on them? Dem dere people be called "Nugget Stalkers®" So for that Nugget Stalker in your life here's a perfect Christmas present. The Nugget Stalker® Hat. Now when someone comes up to you and asks "Wat ya'll doing with that swingy stick son?" You can just point at your hat. Nugget Stalker® and the little stick figure of the Detecting Man are Federally Registered Trademarks in both the United States and Australia. Get yours today from Bill or you can email Doc at docsdetecting@gmail.com and let me know you saw it on Bill's forum so he will get credit for it. Price is $10, plus shipping First Class Mail. Doc
  5. Oh yeah Kegel exercise. After childbirth women are often advised to do that exercise to rehab stretched out muscles. So I guess Qweegle could be someone who does Kegel exercises Quickly. Doc
  6. I don't find another meaning for it. When you do a Google search the first two pages are all dedicated to "MY" Qweegle bungee. You are apparently going to kinky websites with made up words. LOL Like DocsDetecting.com I think you are getting "Qweegle™" confused with the "Swingy Thingy®", now that I have heard in a nasty unrelated context. Or maybe you are thinking about my new "G-Spot™" Portable gold panning treasure scoop? Hope you guys are doing well and staying healthy. Doc
  7. It's a made up name which is a mash up of the words Quick, Bungee and Double (double adjustment point). It describes another innovative product from Doc that makes detecting more enjoyable and helps save your arm, shoulder neck and back from undue stress. Just add your own backpack or Hydration pack. This amazing Bungee Support System provides absolutely instantaneous adjustment so your detector is always at the proper height off the ground, even when you are in mid-swing. We use super strong Marine Grade bungee that is stronger than 3/8ths inch bungee that is commonly used for tie-downs. Call Bill!
  8. I only fly my Drone in Class F air space, so no worries. Doc
  9. Hey Tom, I just think a lot of people are getting tired of breaking other Swing Arms. One accidental move and they snap. And a lot of folks who like using a Swing Arm have not been able to find one that fits other detectors they own. Just like one old style that I used to carry called the EZ Swing it used a "Bow Knuckle" as the attachment point. You know the "Bow Knuckle"? It was that piece Minelab would provide with the SD/GP/GPX machines to attach the bungee to. Well unless your detector's rod was exactly the right diameter the EZ Swing would not work on any other types of detectors. I designed this SAGA Swing Assist Guide Arm so it would work on any brand detector. I am trying to have a wider appeal for my accessories and gadgets. Doc
  10. Me! I'm the automated assembly line. Only 1700 more to assemble. I can't keep up with orders. Your dealers should have more this week if you have been waiting. I have not seen any field reports from people who have purchased the Swing Assist Guide Arm. I would love to hear some news. Thanks gang! Doc
  11. Members 79 1,531 posts Gender:Male Location:Las Vegas, Nevada Interests:Prospecting, Scuba Diving Report post Posted 45 minutes ago (edited) I did a little experiment to see how effective the Gold SPOT™ Treasure Scoop Portable Gold Pan is for dry panning. This scoop was developed not only to be a more effective nugget recovery tool when using your metal detector but also as an effective tool when crevassing and sampling. This is useful when you are looking for deposits of small nuggets and flakes of gold in cracks in bedrock. So for this experiment, I mixed 1 gram of 14 mesh gold, that would be about 30 or so tiny nuggets and a half of a gram of 18 mesh gold which would be around 40- 45 little flakes total 1.5 grams with dirt and black sand. I mixed it up and put the Gold SPOT™ Scoop to work to see how effectively it could recover these tiny pieces of gold. What's your guess? How much of the 1.5 grams do you think the Gold SPOT™ was able to recover by only dry panning with no water? Get in touch with Bill he just got another load of them in.
  12. So I sort of got a kick out of Mike Furness a couple of outings ago when he asked me, "So Doc, are you divorced?" I laughed and told him, "No far from it." But my wife Diana, has no interest in Gold Prospecting but she has never stood in my way to let me go out and look for the shiny. She knows I love this hobby. So anyway, just to update everyone on my marital status in case you were wondering. June 20th, my wife and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. I started dating her when she was 16, and married her a month after she turned 18. All our kids and grand children came over and fixed us a big meal on Sunday, along with a beautiful cake. We got gift cards, and a certificate for us all to have a family portrait when it gets cooler. I got the ol' girl a brand new car for our anniversary, a Telluride. I know this is personal stuff but all you guys are my extended family. So Mike, NO I AM NOT DIVORCED. LOL Doc and Diana
  13. Thank you. I have always loved to tinker with ideas and try to make stuff better. I always loved Robert Kennedy's quote, which he paraphrased from a play by Bernard Shaw, "There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not? That is sort of how I have lived my life. Doc
  14. So it looks like the only short coming of the large coil is on really dinky gold. However I like the extra ground coverage of the larger coil. One thing you have to remember is that the larger coil, is looking at a greater amount of ground mineralization which is probably de-sensitizing it when there are those little .01 gram pieces and making it difficult to detect the dinks. But none of that detracts from the overall conclusion that it appears AUTO 2 is the better setting at least in this experiment. Now how that translates to real-life situations with different ground conditions is yet to be seen. But as I said this is a superb video and very well done. Knowledge is power and you provided a lot of great educational information. Great job! Thank you. Doc
