  1. Hey Rebel Dilek from Nokta/Makro just said they have two new coils for the Simplex. One is a 8.5 inch round DD coil and a 9 X 5 DD coming out I believe this month. Dilek has a video showing the new coils. You can find it over on Steve H. forum talking about them. Chuck
  2. Sorry no pictures. I guess I wasn’t thinking being I ate it . I know a picture is worth a thousand words but maybe I wrote five hundred. When I cook it again I’ll be sure to post a picture. Chuck
  3. This is something I dreamed up and why I call it Shot in the dark . Here is what you going to need. Boneless breast of chicken ( I fixed one for each person) Dried pepper the kind you see people putting on pizza. 2 package Country gravy mix . Two eggs 🥚 Cooking oil . I use canola oil because my wife says it’s good for me. Start by cutting up your chicken breast the long way of it . I try to cut it 3/8” thick so to cook the same in your fry pan . Next beat up one egg and put it in a plate big enough to roll the chicken strips. The other egg we’
  4. This is a joke my wife found and she said she almost spit her coffee out reading it. Chuck
  5. Edge It’s a guy on Rob Allison forum wants what you have. I told him about you but you may want to make contact with him . Chuck
  6. I’ve seen the same thing after a house fire . Where you got a tin roof you will find where the melting metal pool . You get all kind of odd looking shapes like you have. Chuck
  7. Follow me guys we shall advance to the rear. Pie R Square No pie round cornbread square I started prospecting back in 61 and I’m still stupid in so many ways. I can still enjoy the trip life has given me .Thank God! Chuck PS Being I live in a glass house I won’t throw rocks!
  8. To All It had been a long time that Jim and I talked by email but here today he’s wanting to know how I’m doing. I should have been the one checking on him being he’s got about eleven years on me. I guess the odd thing is if one would want to say is Jim and I have never meet. Jim is got to be the greatest guy that I have ever known but like said never meet. I think it all started when I sent Jim something that I can’t remember anymore. I wasn’t wanting anything in return but here came a flood of material for me to read. I just know if we had more in this world like Jim Stra
  9. Bill A nugget is like a woman none ugly but some look better than others. Chuck
  10. Swamp My trouble the first two days there I’d be worthless after such a long drive. Well I hope you make it if that be your wish. Chuck
  11. I’d be happy to pay the 15 but it’s the thousand miles I have to drive that bothers me! Hey Jen could you circle around and pick me up on the way over there ?? haha Don’t answer that I think I know it already. Chuck
  12. Andy I just got to ask this. Didn't you talk to her before you married? Chuck
  13. DSmith Remember the only one you have to make happy in whatever you do is you. The Best to You. Chuck
  14. Guys All I ever wanted was for my GM to work and what I see it is. I'd say this is the end of the story. Thanks to all. Chuck
  15. I think I said something about what the Tech said about the Ground Balance being off. Now looking at the GM it's no way of knowing this unless you got a port and that has got to be where the coil hooks up. If a change was made in the programming to correct my problem we'll never know it. The Tech just wave his hand over it and the sea parted. Giving me another coil was what you call a miss direction. I'm giving you a new coil but I'm over here fixing your trouble. If true I wish they just tell it like it is and don't blow smoke up my ( because I can't see good when they do that ). Ch
  16. Well I got out today to do my testing on the GM 1000 I couldn't believe how well it ran from the time I turned it on. I tested both coils in the deep mode and could run both with the sensitivity set at 7 without any noise but had some noise started at 8. Then I put it in the gold mode and I could run the sensitivity up to 10 in both coils. I did kick it into the auto plus but that's a maybe. I did try to see if either coil would false but that was not to be. I guess what gets me it didn't run this good at home and I did have some falsing there. I plan on more testing before I ma
  17. Bhogg I plan on making that trip I was talking about tomorrow. I can't see anything will be better that before being nothing was done to the unit. I really hope it works great and I will give it my best. I will report all in what I done plus all the settings I used here. The area has lots of black sand and a high mineral content with a small amount of gold plus some silver. Sending me another 5 in. coil in my opinion don't constitute a fix when it shows the same trouble. Until Then Chuck
  18. Mike I do hope all goes well when I get where I need to do the testing on my GM. The question about the engineer I wish I could say I know something but I didn't hear another word about him. I'm not so sure that the Tech believed what I told him to be true. Just like the new small coil he sent me I think it was more to make me happy that something had been done. He was so sure of himself he didn't bother to open it and try it. I don't want to send it back so I'll give it my best to check it out . Like said before until then. Chuck
  19. Well this morning I got my GM 1000 back from the repair center. I put it together and didn't turn it on until I got outside. I was told nothing could be found in trouble with the unit but just maybe on the small coil when he bump it. I had put the small coil on and when I turn it on it was set at 10 on the sensitivity with it set on the gold mode also. When it came alive all I heard was snap crackle and pop. The only way it would settle down was with the sensitivity at 5 or 6 or auto- sensitivity. The way he had it set I got falsing on my carpet grass and the same if you bump it on a tree. Yo
  20. Hey Andy Why don't you come on over from Az. I'm more than willing to wait for and you look younger than myself so I let you drive. We can hunt back together. That sounds like more fun than I can stand. Us just let Minelab ship my GM back to me and forget what I said before about coming. The Best Chuck
  21. Bill I'm sure the Tech was just joking. We had talk before and he knew where I lived. The only trouble I have is he said he'd let me know what if anything was wrong. I hope when I get it back it is a note from him saying if something was wrong and if not say that too. Thanks for your reply. Chuck
  22. I got a funny reply and a odd one from Minelab. I just got a text from Minelab repair center saying the repair on my GM 1000 was complete and I could pick it up. I told whoever it was a long drive for me and would they be so kind and ship it back to me. I ask what had been done to it but no reply as of yet. That is a odd one. Chuck
  23. fishing8046 I know what you say is true but I'm just glad we have a warranty to fall back on. I'll eat humble pie if I can get my GM 1000 back and it is fixed. I've been down the road singing down the road again more than once and that is not a fun thing. I'm waiting on a call from Minelab repair center to hear more if my GM if it's is going to make it. This is as in fixed. Love that warranty. Chuck
  24. Securing the coil cable on both coils didn't do a thing for me but if it worked for others that's great.You that have tried everything and nothing has worked then you need to call Minelab. They will give you a return number and will send you a shipping label. The only thing it's going to cost you is your time. Write the return number on the outside of the box and at some time are another you will get a repair number sent to you by email or text. Be sure you tell them the problem and a good number to call you. Like Bill said Minelab wants to find and fix the issue we having. Whatever
