  1. Generally that is because people are using any old stun gun. 25000 volts is the ideal voltage, It sounds like a lot, but it is absolutely bearable. It causes a strong contraction of the local muscle, but it's actually not that big a deal. 50,000 is painful and 100,000 is only used in S&M clubs. :-). Also with Brown Recluse it is important to use leads on the stun gun. Venom from the Brown Recluse goes deep, so you have to use wires on the stun gun terminals. Putting one lead on top of the injury site and the other lead on the opposite side of the affected limb, so the current actu
  2. If it is a Brown Recluse, it will appear to heal up. The toxin will lay dormant and then 6 months to a year later it will reactivate, rot a little more skin and go dormant again. The darn thing is insidious. Read Stanley Abrams research on his treatment for Brown Recluse bites. He recently died about 9 months ago. I'm not endorsing his technique. I can tell you I know of one person who was having a very bad time with the Brown Recluse bite, he actually saw the spider and killed it After using this technique the pain went away within 30 minutes. The swelling and redness went away th
  3. Looks like L4 Chondrites, pretty pronounced fusion crust. Doc

  5. Thank you for all the input. Obviously this is an issue which many have dealt with. The solutions are varied, but all to the same end. I think I will send one to Dolan Dave just because his broke first thing out of the box, and also because his last order was a bit delayed so I owe him. Adam, Really? Do you know how long it will take me to hand paint those? LOL. First time you throw it on the ground it will disappear. Doc
  6. As you know I started making available through Bill and other dealers after-market Ferrite rings. Most people including myself get a little frustrated when they break because they are so brittle. So first thought was to put them on a plastic luggage tag lanyard attached to a plastic snap to keep them handy, and not banging around in my pocket against change and the like that might break it. So then I wondered about what would happen if I used some of that liquid rubber to give them protection against bumps. Well it takes two coats to give them a good coat. It works really well to keep t
  7. My head healed up really well, certainly much better than I thought it would. From this to this. The doctor recommended I use this scar cream as it healed and apparently the stuff works pretty good. Doc Doc
  8. NO, not waterproof. Just gives you the ability to use your Detector Pro's with the detectors. Doc
  9. Bill has padded arm cuffs for the Equinox for sale. Pre-tested and approved. Doc
  10. I was wondering if maybe dipping them in that liquid rubber that you are supposed to dip tool handles in would give them some protection. Doc
  11. Oh, I almost forgot. Do you love your Detector Pro headphones? Grey Ghosts, Black Widows, etc. etc. Do you love your new Gold Monster 1000, and/or your Equinox? Are you dismayed that they will not work with one another? First, the Equinox / Gold Monster machines have a 1/8th inch jack, your headphones have a 1/4 inch jack. No problem say you, I'll just get a 1/8 in to 1/4 inch adapter! Not so fast little buckaroo. Second: a. A standard adapter does not work. It does not turn off the speaker and most of the time you will not hear the sound through your headphones. The wir
  12. As you all know I made a cover for the GPZ7000 a long time ago, but I never made an arm cuff cover for it. With the GPZ7000 being such a heavy machine, a padded arm cuff cover really feels good. So anyway, I designed one and I just got them in. So place your orders through Bill. The cost is just $19.95. (does not include shipping if Bill has to mail it to you.) Oh and by the way, have you gotten tired of losing your Ferrite Ring yet? I have after market Ferrite Rings too, with a plastic lanyard and plastic clip so you can carry them on your belt loop. Get them from Bill. $14.95 (
  13. Optimize your Equinox for peak "QUIET" performance. You old codgers already know this stuff but I am running into a lot of newbies that are a bit perplexed about the Equinox. This is for them. We have a lot of new detectorists as well as detectorists who have never used a Minelab machine before going through a learning curve with the Equinox. The most common problem seems to be that new Equinox owners feel the detector is noisy and they are not sure how to calm the machine down. Here are some tips:
  14. Well I'm crushed. He never gave me a patch. "Bad Bill!" Doc
  15. WO! WAIT! A patch? Bill has patches? I wonder where he got those? Doc
  16. This is heavy like lead. Not even close to the weight of aluminum. Doc
  17. Last year, I was working a gully when I got a good target sound. At 9 inches I unearth what I think is a piece of lead. Into my trash pouch. Today I am doing some organization of my gear and I dump out the piece of lead. The more I look at it, I'm not so sure it's lead. If it is lead it certainly bears do indications of any symmetry you usually see with a bullet. It looks like a nugget. A 9.4 gram nugget of unknown material. I took a razor and carefully cut a little notch into it, very soft, shiny as silver, or lead? Anyway I am intrigued and wanted you guys input. I have nev
  18. Dartagnon sent me a write up. That baby is rare. Only 125 are known to exist today, well, make that126. Doc
  19. That's a beauty, No Mike it doesn't look like that one the top of the head is more rounded. Doc
  20. It's a mint Mark "D", I assume that is the Denver mint. Or was there a Denver mint back in 1852?
  21. So a customer called me today all excited, and with good reason. I'll call him DJ. DJ has been chasing those elusive nuggets for 15 years without success. Now in his defense he has owned every crappy $200 detector ever made, and he does not live in gold country. He lives way up in the NorthWest. His brother JJ who is also my customer lives in Utah. So twice a year, DJ flies to his brother's house and they travel down to Gold Basin for a week of fun. A year ago, DJ finally had saved enough money to invest in a Gold Monster 1000 that he purchased from me, and his brother's prompting. I
  22. I have a customer who needs a used GPX machine, preferably a 4500. However he only has $2000 to spend. If anyone has a GPX machine they want to sell. I know this is low but if you have one you want to move, call me at 1-800-477-3211 and I will give you his name and telephone number. Thanks! Doc
  23. Hey guys, I did an automatic Specific Gravity calculator in Excel. I will give you the link here so you can download the spreadsheet. You just put in the wet weight and the dry weight and the spreadsheet does all your calculations for you instantaneously. The forum won't allow me to upload an XLS file. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ixhlgic3zbrdy1k/AADZ_azcUvo7ImrL7ufXw4Xfa?dl=0 Doc
  24. I saw that on Netflix, and wondered if it would be worth watching. I just needed to hear an endorsement. Thank you, Doc
