  1. Sorry to hear of your loss. There are some darn sorry folks out there.
  2. Chris, that wire gold sure is pretty. Keep up the good work. RSJ
  3. Read the manual again and again. In the prospecting mode with the tracking on, it should be running smooth. You may need to reset the programs back to factory settings. See pages 46 and 47 in the manual.
  4. It's alive! I'm glad you are still around John B. I hope all is well with you and yours. Rattlesnake Jim Roswell, NM
  5. This fellow can do the repairs on the older Minelab SD's' http://www.detectormods.com/
  6. Unc, we might have crossed paths. I was in Alaska the summer of 1980. Didn't we play poker one night at Whitehorse, Yukon Territory about the end of May? What a hoot it was. I'll have to see if I can find the pictures. RSJ

  8. Chris, it looks like you made some new friends. Sounds like a great time was had by all. I know you are glad you are home safe and sound. I'm looking forward to more pictures.
  9. Wow! Beautiful specimen for sure!
  10. I remember a friend had one of those Coiltek pinpointers that had a switch to switch between the coil and the pinpointer on an old Minelab SD. Switching from the coil to the pinpointer blew out something. He was supposed to turn the detector power off before making the switch from the coil to the pinpointer.
  11. Try a small piece of lead or something like birdshot. Tape it to a business card or piece of cardboard. That will work as good as a nugget for a test piece. Jim
  12. Dang. I guess i missed that story. I'll have to ask him about that. LOL Jim
  13. I have used a straw and a bicycle pump and a leaf blower in order to blow the lighter stuff away on bedrock, so I could pick the gold up with tweezers. Interesting tool. It should work. RSJ
  14. Neat photo! Dang shep, I thought I had that title. Been called one all my life. Did you know my old friend "Woody" Woodworth in Coarsegold. Best wishes! Jim
  15. A Compass and topo maps is all I ever used. My brother sent me a GPS about 10 or 15 years ago. I used it once to go to the mail box and back home. I gave it away a month or so ago.
  16. Great video! Thanks, Shep! I once lost a dredge to one. I found most of the pieces all beat to heck. It was not a good day. RSJ
  17. It looks like it went well and everyone seemed to have a good time. It looks like you had a good time.
