Goldbill and all others, whatever brand you decide on, don't put them on too tight, I had a strap break and as usual, using my handy electrical tape (always in my pocket), I taped it on for the day. Not good, I guess I pinched my perineal nerve at my knee! Been out of service and detecting, for over two months. Feelngs are starting to come back which is very good.

DANG Shep!

I am glad you posted this, I just bought a fancy set from Black & Decker with two sets of pads and the first time I used them was putting down some flooring. I had trouble keeping them up and a couple of days later my left leg gave me some trouble not locking good at the knee!! The right one has had this trouble before but not the left. I wonder now if the pads caused it? I will wear long pants and pin them from now on!

Thanks

NOT good shep I have at least 5 pairs in the shed but the ones I most enjoy and now use only is what Jason handed out at the last gold basin outing 2007. They are really great. Thanks again Jason.

I wish I knew. I will check them today for some brand names, but I doubt there's anything on them, they are military knee pads. Maybe Jason can throw some light on the make.

Cheers

GoldBill,

The correct name for knee pads here in Good old Calif. is{San Francisco tennis shoe's} :laught16::laught16::laught16: Grubstake

Grub,

It's good to see your sense of humor is in good shape :laught16::laught16:

There is another option...try the neoprene knee braces that pull on like your ol'mothers girdle...I have worn them all day long when my knees were bothering me. they are a little hot but you will adjust...just enough padding for digging a target in rocks and gravel...and they give your knees extra support.

29er...what are you doing with elbow pads, sneaking up on those nuggies?

Fred,

Old habits die hard. I wore them while working in stopes. Sometimes you got to brace yourself with one knee and elbow while hammering out the ore.

I tried to sneak up on the nuggets but that didn't work to good, mwtal detector made to much noise and scared them off :laught16::laught16::laught16:

Yo All...Below are the one's I use, but only use one on my left knee since that's the one I mainly kneal on...It was very hot, though, so I drill about 30 - 40 3/8" holes in the upper section so it isn't so bad anymore....Really a great kneepad...I had developed what the Doc called "contact dermatitis" on my left knee from getting down on 140 degree sand and since I've been using the pad it's pretty much healed...I bought it at the local hardware store and actually talked them into selling me only one for half the price of the set...They said that it is pretty common for folks to only need one pad so they accomodate their customers...Cheers, Unc
