  1. For Sale: 2001 Carson Toy Hauler, 24' overall I could load my Suzuki Samurai in it between the rear door and cabinet. Bumper pull, everything works last time it was used. For the right price a Honda 2000 generator will be included... The pull down bed in the rear was removed to accommodate a custom built queen size bed that my friend built so he could load his salt flats bike in under the bed....DS_Store There are two beds/bench seats on the sides of the trailer which fold down. Last used at the Bonneville Salt Flats, Wendover Ut in 2018.The Dodge was the tow vehicle, from Houston Tx. to
  2. Plenty of clearance thus avoiding pesky prop strikes? Waiting patiently to hear it run, it sure looks amazing Dave, great work. Safety first!
  3. Goldseeker4K Congratulations on putting your project together, it certainly looks good, at least the front and rear covers do. I know there is a market for high quality stuff with good content and wish you well going forward. Bob has been known to stir a bit, but he does it with style and grace, so all things considered things could be worse. Carry on.
  4. Fred, Don't you still have your drywall ax handy?
  5. Lanny, Yet another great post, thank you for sharing your adventures with everyone! It certainly sounds like you and your wife are having a sweet adventure! Jeff
  6. Happy Birthday and what Frank said!
  7. Great newsTom, welcome back!!👍🏻
  8. Just saw this, really happy to hear your dad is doing better, he is a great guy!
  9. Hi Dave, This is a great thread and you have done a very workmanlike job, my hat is off to you.... I was recently investigating methods for welding or soldering aluminum and alloys, short of the TIG method what process are you going to be using to put the pieces of the head together? Or are you going to use TIG? Again great job and thank you for bringing us along for the ride, err, pre flight...... Jeff
  10. Hey Chris, Welcome back, I know what you mean about lotsa lead in the Randsburg area.... I have found two small nuggets NW of the town, just about a mile, on the sloping hills... However the bullets and assorted bits of trash are abundant.... I think you will hit a target every three steps or so... Tuesday I was on the Taft Club claims around Benson Canyon on the El Paso side of the valley.... Yep lots of lead, I found an area which someone had raked down and pulled trash off of that site as well... It was however a beautiful day with no wind which is a real boon, and butterflies and
  11. Congratulations Don, great to see you back on some gold!
  12. Beautiful work sir! Thank you for sharing with us. Jeff
  13. Nice lookn gold Bill, but why is the cured ham in an ashtray? Jeff
  14. Wishing you a great Birthday Tom!!
  15. Thank you Wikipedia, "Conchoidal fracture", one of very few terms I remember from Physical Geology decades ago...... From Wikipedia, the free Conchoidal fracture Obsidian gives conchoidal fractures Conchoidal fracture in obsidian Conchoidal fracture in flint Conchoidal fracture in glass
  16. Arctic Dave, Thank you as well, in my mind I was guessing that the counter clockwise direction would be produce a negative result in the balance scheme, where as turning in a clockwise direction would produce a positive change.... I associate turning a conventionally threaded device to the left, a nut on an angle stop for example where, if one has neglected to shut off the supply preceding said angle stop things will get very exciting and wet shortly, ergo a negative result....... Ahh yes, yet another reason I prefer drywall to plumbing any day.... Again, thank you Martin for your sage
  17. Martin, Thank you for your insight on GB2 tuning. I was in the El Pasos recently, (an area I believe you are familiar with) and encountered hot and cold rocks, as well as the usual suspects, lead, steel and brass..... The hot rocks give a signal which is very much like gold I think, not that I have found any of late, and the cold rocks give a null signal which is quite a different sound. Would you please explain the "slightly negative ground balance", would that be turning the fine adjustment a bit counter clockwise from the optimal ground balance position or would that mean turning it

  19. John B., a long time and world famous meteorite hunter knows a great deal about finding meteorites in Oman and other locations as well.... Maybe he will see your post and respond with his wisdom. Good hunting!
  20. A couple of you fellows are doing a thorough and precise examination of the assertions in this thread, your logic, conclusions, and communication skills are to be admired. My sombrero is off to you. Thank you for your patience and diligent observations. Etc..... Signed: An Hombre or native or something......
  21. Very nice work Tom, Are those round discs on the doors Neodymium magnets ? They are sure handy for everything from pictures on the fridge to gas tank fill door latches... I think I got a bunch of various sizes from the "Gauss Boys" years ago. Had fun with a big one under a table top in a restaurant moving a knife across the table, had the waitress going for a while.... Great job thank you for posting the inspiration. If anybody has an old hard drive the magnets in them are scary strong, my old one broke in half and I still have half stuck to a Bunkster pick.
