  1. That imagination came to life for me many years ago with a solid multi ouncer....needless to say I am to this day bummed about it. So these days I do have a pinpointer so when I come close to a target I suspect to be a nugget I slow down and dig it out carefully not like a lumberjack in a tree cutting contest.
  2. Until you smack a huge nugget with the end of your pick...
  3. I see my ole friend Jerry Hobbs left middle orange hat , learned a lot about dredging from him, use to visit his shop in Azusa on the way up to Follows Camp up on the east fork in the San Gabriel mountains. One thing he always reminded me was to keep the fingers away form the edge of the nozzle of the 8 inch dredge and not to overfeed the sluice box. Some good reading you have there...
  4. Yes get the bed liner stuff, I was in a rush at o'Reilly's and took the trunk spray paint instead. It worked out fine after 3 coats, dries in 2 hours so more coats the better.
  5. Hi Chet, Great idea , I have a multimeter here and I will go check to see if it has conductivity, well it checked out good. Looking forward to using this Detech coil soon, in the past it has found plenty of little nuggies.
  6. Update on my Detech 15 x 10 Mono Elipt. coil repair, I ended up buying some bedliner spray. I taped the front with blue painters tape and cleaned the bottom part of the coil best as I could. I sprayed one layer at a time waiting a few hours for it to dry between coats. Only one problem I may encounter when I try it out, the bedliner spray I bought was a two tone gray/white...kinda had that spark to it... now I am wondering if it has metal aluminum flake in the paint. .
  7. I've seen this video before, and every time my eyes bulge out to the floor in disbelief, amazing!!!
  8. Bob you are always good for advice, your expertise on color will be greatly appreciated. Pink will do just fine as its a calming color and I like to be calm and relaxed when detecting.
  9. Bob, some great options you pointed out, next time I am at the hardware shop in town I will look for some of that spray on bedliner stuff. Thanks.
  10. Yes that's true and I have thought about it, but before I get into a project perhaps I get lucky locating one.
  11. I 've had this great little coil made by Detech for a number of years but my coil cover is shredded. If anyone happens to have one or knows of anyone who has a coil cover for this pictured coil let me know. I called the U.S. distributor Rege back east and he said he had none told me to call metaldetectors.com. Unfortunately they had none.
  12. Sweet piece Bill, proof the gold is still out there waiting for a coil to go over it.
  13. Since you asked Bill, here are a few found with my Minelab 4500 and 11" Commander Mono coil. I just love the combination of the 11" Mono and GPX 4500..low and very slow to hear the deep gold.
  14. Hey guys and gals, I am in search of the 14x9 Evo coil, am also open to the 12 Evolution, and 15 inch Evo if no 14x9 are available ..if anyone has one that's in very good condition let me know. The new ones are a bit high for me at the moment. Thanks!
  15. Okay , I am not the only one....a feel better.
