  1. Hi All It has been a while since I posted anything. I have been down from nugget shooting for the last 3 years. First it was my left knee surgery, then it was the shoulder rotator cuff and this year it is the right hip replacement. Sure has been a drag, just call me the Almost 6 million dollar man. LOL. I think I'm going to get back to swinging the old detector this year. I Seem to have lost the WSPA's forum url. I cant seem to find it any longer. My membership is still paid up and I would like to get an updated claims map. I hope to start getting pout in Oct or Nov. It sure is great to be pai
  2. Hey Idissleroy I don't have a problem selling you the detector. With PayPal payment. The shipping cost I give you was for UPS which charges for the shipping by footprint of size of the package. They also charge a flat rate no matter what the package weight is. The GMT I have listed, is 7.5 lbs, but it falls in the footprint of the 10 kilo gram size so cost is very high. You didn't want it shipped by USPS Int Express which is much cheaper. I can tell you right now, Kellyco ships USPS. No I can not repackage in a different box and get a lower rate from UPS. The GMT is not like a Minelab, With t
  3. Hey nubian Good to read your post again. Well, show us all that big old Sudan Gold. I hope that oxcart size coil found you a ton of that yellow stuff. Keep at it. CH
  4. Thanks guys I always love to see stuff like this. I never ceace to be amazed by the work the old timers were able to do. When I see the workings and see how much gold was taken it just floors me. Thanks again CH
  5. Good Lord :hahaha: Sick just sick. CH
  6. I want to thank all the Vets, who have walked the line and protected this great nation. To those who have given blood and some times life to insure that America remains a beacon of freedom and liberty. I thank you and God Bless you all. CH
  7. Hi All Just an up date. I found a couple Videos on Youtube with these coils vs Nuggetfinder of same size. I don't know anything about the guys but if they infact did and honest test, as shown in the video. It seems there is some more work needed on these coils. <_< http://www.youtube.com/user/anotherhotrock#p/a/u/1/J9JOyzlN3qw Keeper Swinging CH
  8. Hi Bill I read some place that this company was started by a forum member on one of the QZ forums by the user name Pennyweight(AKA dwt and some others). His brother was promoting the coils on a few of the sites. I don't anything about him but the ones that do, didn't have many good things to say. When I first saw them they were making them in Hays Electronics coil shells and now it looks like they have come out with their own coil shells and they do look nice. I have not seen any here in the States. I have heard a few guys in OZ that have them and they seem to like them, with good reports. Yo
  9. Happy Birth Day Bill. Have a good one. :whoope: CH
  10. Wow Kid Congrats on the high grade. I bet I have sorted 50 tons of tailings with my GB2 and the MXT and have never found anything. If I ever do, the first person I'm calling is El Dorsdo to make me ring. Keeper Swinging CH
  11. Hi All Brown santa dropped off my 4000 today at noon by noon 30 it mounted up and checked out. The new switchs, ML replace all of them, are great and the detector is working just great. Ready to hit it this summer. ML shipped it over night which was above what needed to be done. Thanks ML service for stepping up. Keeper Swinging CH
  12. Hi All Here is an update on the my GPX 4000 repair. I received a call from the manager of the repair facility in IL. It turns out that the detector is not fried. It does not need a new board, or major repair to the board at all. He told me that there was a mistake and that the switchs will be replaced at no charge and that the detector would be checked out completely. What a major relief. I must say Minelab stepped up and will do what is required and more, to get my detector back asap. I have been on a emotuonal roller coaster that has really been a boomer. I want to thank Minelab for making t
  13. Hi Bill, Chris Yes it has been resolved. Minelab USA stepped up and I got the real good result from the right person in charge. See the update post. Thanks to all my friends and support from Awout at Minelab USA. After two phone calls today with Minelab, My detector is repaired and on it's way home. at no cost for the Switchs. CH
  14. Hi All Beware of the ML service center in IL. I sent my trusty GPX 4000 into the the IL repaire center about 3 weeks ago. Never herd a thing from them untill today, It seams my GPX 4000 is totaly fried. Will not power up, or any thing, and a new board is 1100.000. The thing is it was working fine on Thursday, and I shipped it on a Friday the next day. To have just the front switchs replaced, The mode select, and a coil/Rx switch EST 95.00. Now that has become 1100. Because my detector is fried some how?????? If that is not bad enough They don't have parts to fix anything that old(GPX 4000)??
  15. Hi Adam I think Max is back up north, or on his way up. I think he said he was a going to be out at a pay to prospect area as an attendant or something like that, but I could be wrong on that. Not sure abouthis sccess to internet. thanks CH Hi Frank I don't have any lighter wood and I do have the oak and maple I need to use. I figure I will be hauling it on my ATV so not real worried about the weight. I think I have enough to make the little sampler that is in Sam's book also. So I could take it out to find out if the area is worth making a run with the heavier unit. Hey Ted I did not know B
  16. I went out to my shop and dusted off all my wood working equipment, I built all my oak kitchen cabinets, dinning table, and several nice oak entertainment centers and book cases. I have just about any tool needed to machine wood. I have tons of red oak lumber and some hard maple i need to use up and make room for more stuff. So I been wanting a nice 12 volt puffer dry washer. It seems that the Beck drywasher is highly valued and highly thought of. I don't have plans for one, but I think Sam Radding"s drywashers was kind of based on the Beck. I know he knew the manufacture of the beck at the ti
  17. What a wounderful gift Shep. She is a very lucky young lady. Keeper Swinging CH
  18. I know what it is like. I'v been 20 miles from the truck on a 4x4 ATV at 12,000 ft and that happens :( When I got back to the camper it took me 5 hr to warm up again. I had the gear for it, but you still get cold, and it was Jume B) got love the the Rockies. I applaud your sand to go that high up, great job. Keeper Swinging CH
  19. Hi Ron I'm in the same boat. I required a delivery conformation so I know they got it and when. All I needed was the front switches replaced and a checkup. I called monday to find out when it would be fixed and have not herd any thing back. I think they use fake names because I tlked with Dan before I sent it back but now there is no Dan there, so not sure what is going on. I herd from another owner it may take up to 6 weeks to get it back. In AU they getting them back in like 2 weeks. If this the kind of service Minelab gives I'm done with them for sure. Keeper Swinging CH
  20. I only talked with Bob by E-mail about drywashers. He freely gave me his knowledge and I guess a little of himself about drywashers. I feel I will have a little of him with me always. He had the sprit of the true old west prospector and shared it with every person he met. The world seems a little smaller without Bob, he will be missed. Thanks Bob for sharing. CH
  21. Hey Sawmill Do you think it is really bad apples, or could it just be that the BLM and FS don't want people going in to areas that aren't claimed and stacking claims, with the high price of gold? That don't make you a bad apple. The big problem I see is that the BLM and FS is full of greenies and echonuts that have taken over the Dept of Interior. Like Salazar and his cronies. They do not want you in their lands and forests digging. Anything that makes it easyer to do that they want gone. The best way to destory some thing is from within, and that is what has happened. The BLM and FS that cont
  22. Hi MikeC I have a 14" orange Coiltek. I have never used it. I have been using the Commqander and the Nugget Finder. I have found some really small gold with that big old heavy commander coil. I'll give it a shot with the 14" Coiltek. It is kind of ugly, but I don't care if it will find the gold Thanks CH
  23. Hi Guys Bill yeah I guess that is what I'm asking? I have been using the General mode, Timing normal. Whit the menue setting in extra. If I change it to to smooth, does that smooth setting effect the depth? From what your saying it does not matter what the sensitive, custom setting in the menue, mode edit is set to it does not effect the detector in normal timings right? So if I under stand this smooth/extra only works in Sensitive timings? I been using my 9x14 NF adv and a 12x15 commander mono. these the largest coils I have. I'm thinking an 18" NF SL maybe a good investment? Thanks CH
  24. Hi All I have question on setup of the 4000. In the manual it states that Sensitive Smooth is best for smaller gold and has limited depth. When your in Gen Mode and normal timing, and extra in the mode edit. If you change to smooth does it affect the depth in the same way as Sen/smooth timing? I'm searching an area that has tons of hot rocks and Sen/smooth helps. Or should I just slug through the hot rocks in Extra for the depth? If there is gold there it will be deep. 12" plus. Thanks. CH
