  1. Oh wow lol! that's too cool! 16 AA batteries? jeesh
  2. These discontinued Minelab products are really cool to look at and read about. I was amazed. The Golden Hawk looked cool! Wonder what the Klondike looked like. https://www.minelab.com/usa/support/knowledge-base/discontinued-products
  3. Does anyone know what a GPX-5000 has that a GPX-4800 doesn't have? just curious
  4. Anyone use the 1/2 size GPX battery? Is it really only 3hrs?
  5. "Okay you guys go dig rocks i will rest"
  6. I think after reading everything i'll just leave him at home lol. Thanks guys yeah he's a great dog, I've had him for 2yrs. He loves Human's. lol
  7. Hi my name is Boomer! I'm 3yrs old and my owner thinks i'm a american staff./sharpei. I want to go prospecting really bad with my owner, he likes to dig rocks and I like to smell them. I don't think he'll let me go because he thinks I will smell this plant called a cactus and my mouth will end up looking like a angry porcupine. I've begged to go. Occasionally I sneak inside this motorized human buggy. I also got crazy and found my own buggy.
  8. Does anyone bring their dog(s) with them out metal detecting? Since i'm so new to all this and my dog has never been outside off a leash yet i'm hesitant to take him with me. But i know he'd love every "sniff! How do you keep them away from cactus? I'm assuming you can't.
  9. I seem to have messed up and bought another coil Nugget Finder 17x13 spoked Now im good...I swear im good now...
  10. Okay great, so there isn't a difference. I was thinking bigger coil making a bigger field so thus draining the battery faster.
  11. I was wondering why I haven't seen this question anywhere. Does a bigger coil use more power?
  12. I found an actual picture of the treasure probe.
  13. I ordered some smoke bombs once. nothing like the picture lol
  14. That's really cool! I remember when i was a kid in 80's i tried to make a hovercraft with a vacuum motor. It didn't work.
  15. Anyone remember the old Popular Science ads? I thought this was a good classic to share. Even though this ad pre-dates me by 6yrs, it puts a smile to my face
  16. Thanks Au Seeker, I tired to get better photos but my cell phone gets blurrier the closer i go. I was examining the coins "stars" and they are clearly not right. I'm going to take them to a local jeweler and see what they think its made of. i might just do that chrisski, id love to watch them melt
  17. Hi everyone, I'm concerned my 5 x 1oz Gold eagles could be fake I inherited these from my mother. Her late husband purchased 30 of them. They pass the "ring" test. They pass the size test. They passed the magnet test. But...they don't pass the weight test... Around 19g ea. on all of them (real eagles weigh about 33g ea.). I'm probably going to take them to a local jeweler soon. My question is we probably know these are fake so is it worth melting these down to get what gold is in these out of them?
  18. That's cool ! I'm assuming the stock battery isn't 16V?
  19. Yes don't buy anymore lol. these things are expensive !!
  20. Hi again everyone. I went ahead and bought my coils. after many hours of thinking and reading i decided to get 3 additional coils for my GPX. I should be set for life now 11" Minelab Commander Mono Nugget Finder 14x9 EVO Detech 15" Ultimate Spiral DD
