  3. Minelab gpx4500 i bought new in sept 2016 so still has lots of warranty remaining. Comes with everything it came with new, 11"dd and mono coils,harness,both chargers and a eureka worx camo battery holder/control box cover. Also comes with the docs gold screamer package which really cuts the weight down of the detector. I have around 35 hours logged with the machine and it works great. I just need to sell it. $2200 for everything.Located in east TN. Email me at kmyer74@hotmail.com and i can send pics.

  9. Hi Bob. It was nice to see you today at the Mansfield ohio civil war show.

  10. OK, thanks!
  11. well i hope not, I have not seen any myself and i get all mass emails as well. The only thing I've been sending out is requesting finds lists from people at the spring hunt
  12. I don't post here often, but check in from time to time. Last week I got slew of e-mails purportedly from this site. This was about the time of that big GMail hack and hye were telling everyone to not open any links you were not sure of. Just wondering if the site had been hacked or if it was related to some other site business?!?

  16. Sure does look like a cut reale to me.
  17. Good work,nice collection going there,
  18. My partner and I have been hunting a short term CS camp for about 8 years. The finds are relatively few but this is the field where I found my AVC button so it keeps drawing me back hoping that that next plow will turn up something awesome. One thing that always turns up are broken pieces to Selma Arsenal friction primers we believe that about 4 or 5 boxes were dropped since we have recovered parts to approx 50 of them. Over the years I have kept all the small parts and reassembled them as I find enough parts - one thing that has eluded me were the wires that was used to ignite the powder in the tubes. Today I went back out after a recent plowing and tried a new tactic using zero disc and dug the very low (0-6) VDI targets and was rewarded with 5 wires so i now have 6 restored primers to display.

  19. Hello Nick - I am good friends and metal detect with Lookin' Down (Steve) ; he is a great guy so you don't have to worry about using Pay Pal or him not shipping. He is also involved with the JGD digs so the whole forum will harass him for you. Hope that helps!
  20. Hi everybody, My name is Nick. I am from Canada, and also new in the detecting field. Like any detectorist, I am dreaming…, so I decided to buy a Garrett Recon detector from a gentleman from forum. Being in Canada, I was asked to pay (Pay Pall) before the item will be shipped to me. I like to have your opinion about this, also considering the person I’ll buy from is Lookin’ Down. He mentioned that he made couple of transactions on forum before. Any comment will be appreciated. Thank you
  21. What good is an archeologist if he's going to follow the status quo and rewrite history no matter what the relics tell him. History books are filled with nonsense and half truths about our past. I say outlaw professional archeologists!
  22. Whining? I'd say extreme ... looks to me like he's love to hang a few of us detectorists! Whether you loved or hated the TV show "Diggers," here is, in part, what the show's Archaeologist Marc Henshaw had to say (07/21/15) in his blog http://www.archaeologydude.com/ , ... seems to me a a more reasonable, respectful, middle of the road approach: "Is this the perfect system for showing archaeology on a reality TV series like Diggers? No. Can this create a foundation where one community (archaeologists) and another community (metal detectorists) can work together? Absolutely. Common ground is what we seek, and have to seek. There are no laws protecting cultural resources on private land. The show never went on any property that was not privately held and always with landowner written consent. Archaeologists have to accept the fact there are people with metal detectors. We cannot lament their existence or try to stifle their use. Fathers take their sons or daughters out metal detecting, people comb beaches with metal detectors, and looters raid sites with them. All of them are passionate about history even the ones who feel they are entitled to own it. It is then up to us, the archaeologist to guide the narrative. For too long has organizations like the SAA (Society for American Archaeology) and SHA (Society for Historical Archaeology) called for a public presence of archaeologists to engage the public about the value of cultural resources. We are to be activists leading the charge in the public’s eye as the holders of the arcane knowledge of the past! That is a pervasive sentiment among our profession. Who owns the past? The archaeologists? We feel we’re the most qualified to interpret it. The metal detectorists? Many have a deep connection to the land and feel as if history can be owned or commoditized." "The Diggers show has introduced me to both camps now and everyone in between. I met hardened looters who keep what they find and distrust archaeologists. I’ve met archaeologists who keep what they find in white storage boxes in backrooms ready for their “analysis”. Diggers places us in a unique position. For one, we as archaeologists should have had shows like this a long time ago. Instead we attend conferences and write papers waiting for the production companies to come to us and talk about public engagement. Now there is a controversial show where we must be reactionary. I disagree, this is the moment we need to seize. This is the moment we can help metal detectorists and others in their community become stewards of the past like we are. We can educate by creating programs like the one Matt Reeves established at Montpelier, Virginia, using metal detector enthusiasts to help interpret a site. Both communities can work together to explore and preserve the past."
  23. Suggest you Google Tom Dankowski's blogs regarding the Fisher F75, = an extraordinary amount of great, useful information that can be applied to ensure best performance.

  25. Thanks Wayne
  26. Possibly something clamped to the end of a strap (made of fabric) to keep it from fraying?
