  1. Has anybody here used one of these? They seem to be amazing at finding Gold. The price is amazing too.
  2. Cottonwood, nice community and quite close to the Bradshaw mountains. Great climate and very affordable housing. Population of about 12000.
  3. Thanks for the input guys. Really appreciate it. Jim
  4. Is there a sweet spot on the GM 1000 large coil that sounds off when over a target? Is it the tip, heel, left side or right side? With the coil being roughly 100 sq. inches where is the target in those sq. inches? Is it the same for the smaller coil? I seem to be getting hits all over the place. It's kinda a pain to have to search through 100 sq inches 3-4 inches deep. Thanks --------------------------------------- Jim
  5. Thanks for the info guys. I'll check them out. Jim
  6. I'm looking for a scale to weigh my gold finds. What's the best one that everyone agrees on? Thanks ---------------------------- Jim
  7. I have been having the same problem except with both the 10" and 5" coils. If I just barely touch a stone or twig with the edge or bottom I get a hit, albeit it only is sporadic. Then when I go over it again without touching anything it goes silent. I do the dance to see if that helps to no avail, so I just go on and assume it is nothing, as it usually is. It's really frustrating because as you and Kevin have taught us "dig everything". Now it seems I'm not alone with this phenomenon. I'll try the fix you've shown to see if that helps. I'm going out tomorrow and we'll see what happe
  8. I'm sure there will be scads. We'll be bringing both of ours.
  9. Thanks Rick, I'll check them out. Jim
  10. I like mine so much I bought 2. One for each arm. They are just as all the comments and reviews say. Very easy to use, even fro a newbie like me. Plus they find GOLD! Wow, what a concept! Jim
  11. Thanks for the info. Looks like you got the last set available. Went to Frontgate and they say the item is no longer available. Oh well, just like nuggies shooting, the hunt continues. Cheers --------------------------------- Jim
  12. Tried the eBay # and got nada. Can you give a brand name and/or a model number? Sounds like just what I want. Thanks ----------------------------------------- Jim
  13. This is not my research. I found this on Facebook from an Aussie guy named Henry Clapton . Pretty interesting stuff. BTW for those who are metrically challenged 1 centimeter = 7/16". He states --------------------------------------------- I chose the 10 x 6 coil as my primary coil and got started. I chose to do some basic tests on a patch of ground void of any metals. I used three sample gold nuggets as my test subjects. The smallest of these was a mixture of tiny nuggets making up one gram. I thought this will give the Gold Monster 1000 a good run for its money. I was mistaken.
  14. Hey Mike, what kind of wireless setup is that? Is it "bluetooth" or another type? I've heard the Zlink is a good one. I'm thinking about going that route also. Thanks --------------------------------- Jim
  15. This may be just a silly question but, I've seen several members info with a WSPA number. I've tried to look it up but I get a "you're not authorized" message. What is WSPA? I'm baffled. Jim
  16. I'm thinking about getting a pin pointer. I've heard both the Garrett and the White's TRX are among the best. Price seems to be about the same so that's not really an issue. Does anybody have an opinion or experiences to share so I can make a good decision? Thanks ------------------------------------ Jim
  17. Thanks for the info guys. Bill, how short do these shafts collapse to? Should i get the upper and lower or just one or the other? So many choices, whew ---------------------------- Jim
  18. Can you guys fill me in on the Herk Stand. I googled it with no results. Also, do any of the Minelab shafts telescope? It would be nice to get one for the GM 1000. Thanks ------------------------------- Jim
  19. Bill's right on. I was out today working some eroded hillsides with brush. Had the big coil to start but switched to the smaller one and it was a huge difference. A lot easier to poke around with. Didn't find anything but it was much easier to use.
  20. Wow, what a great idea! Saves a few bucks. Thanks ------------------------ Jim
  21. Both of the coils came with covers. I'm trying to think ahead as I want to wear the covers out by prospecting. Now it's just waiting on Minelab for the accessories to catch up with the GM 1000. Thanks for all the input -------------------------------- Jim
  22. Looking to buy a coil cover for my GM 1000. Went to the Minelab site store with no luck. Anybody know where these can be purchased? Thanks -------------------------- Jim
  23. Got a GM 1000 and really like it. The head phones however leave a lot to be desired. Pretty small and don't cover up my ear completely. Surfed around the web and found the Deteknex W3 Pro headphones with a 1/8" jack. I'm curious if anyone has any experience with this brand and will they work with my GM 1000? Also, any comments on any other headphones that will work with the GM 1000 would be greatly appreciated. Thanks -------------------------- Jim
  24. The Gold Monster comes with a USA style wall charger with several different plug configurations for international users. It does not have a car charger. Instead it has a battery charger (alligator clips that attach to a car battery). It comes with a L-ion battery pack as well as a pack for 8 AA's. The L-ion pack charges fairly quickly, 2 hrs maybe.Don't know how long the battery pack lasts as I haven't run it dry yet after several trips out. Mine GM weighs in at just shy of 3-lbs, 6-oz's. I find it to be a great little machine. Light weight and really easy to use. Like all dete
