  1. Another one I have is this Detech DD coil for the Gpx series ML detectors....goes deep. I sold it previously but it got smashed by usps..so it was returned. I sprayed some sealant on the various cracks and it fired up just find. So the black marks you see was my attempt at waterproofing it. The coil is to big for me...the cracks need to be resealed...but last time I used it it worked nice and ran smooth. I hear the relic hunters back east like this coil, and like I said it goes deep. 100.00 includes shipping west of Colorado.
  2. I have this 17" Nuggetfinder Mono coil for sale 75.00... includes shipping. I have not used it in a few years....may work fine but as I recall it may be a bit touch sensitive. I good coil that's found plenty of nuggets years ago, it would be a good coil for someone who has the ability to make repairs. I know some of the guys on the forum do stuff like that. Like I said, this coil may just work fine...no coil cover...but overall its in good shape.
  3. In the Sierra's they show up in early spring ..when it warms up a bit. I have 2 feeders going..there are hundreds living in the nearby oak trees..swooping down like a f16..to the feeders. At times they buzz so close to me I wonder how the heck maneuver so fast and change directions instantly.
  4. I have a nice 19.50 gram solid California gold nugget. 1225.00..p.m. if interested.
  5. Great effort...and you went home with some yellow.
  6. They sure are, just last night I filled the feeder for them...7 over here also. ....they will be buzzing all over the place soon.
  7. 44.31 per gram.....698.00 includes shipping. Paypal or Postal check only. p.m. for any questions
  8. The so called loss of depth is insignificant in my opinion. You wouldn't believe how tiny some of my gold pieces are found at very good depth. Get yourself three coils....small like a sadie, a medium one like a 11" mono and a 16" to 18" . Cover the ground you hunt with all three and you will have it covered....enhanced works well in medium and hot ground..Crank up the gain and go very slow. Well thats my 2,3,4,5, bits. Good luck.
  9. Front panel. General Enhanced Mode Fixed Mono if using mono coil... Back Panel....I usually run the Stab...2 -4 notches below my highest gain settings....If ground to hot, reduce gain. Don't over think it. The more you use it the better understanding you will have. keep reading the owners manual. Watch some JP videos. Keep the coil low and swing slow if in a patch. Reground periodically if in hot ground.
  10. Happy Birthday ...wishing you good health and plenty of gold in 2019.

  17. Welcome to the forum....like your cool rock collections. Thanks for sharing !
  18. Mike, First congrats on the birth of your son..., your going to be an awesome dad, I do understand your concerns about California and its politics in that regard. As far as the gulch I have not been hunting that area in the past 3 years do to much activity in that area. I have a few spots I go between and have done fairly well...and as usual looking for new spots always. If you choose Arizona, I am sure you will have plenty of opportunity to find new locations..and no poison oak... . At this moment its been raining and the terrain is rough and sticky, the clay is slippery and its easy to find oneself down the slippery slope. Glad to hear all is good with you... keep us posted on where you end up. Oh by the way.....I hear Arizona is LOADED with Gold.....I know with your skills you will do well.
  19. Mgoldbag. Just come back down south..you know where the gold is here.
  20. Happy Birthday Gary....hope you had a good one.
  21. MgoldBag, Glad to hear your still around ...sounds like your up to a new adventure. Hope all is well and good luck with your move to where ever it may be. F
  22. I use headphones...had no problem hearing the rattle 10 feet away. But > i also wear snake guards year round just in case.
  23. It seems to soft for silver..looks like old lead that's been buried for a long time to get that patina. But I could he wrong and may just have to go through all my buckets of what I i.d. as lead. If it were silver not sure it would cut so easy.
