    I did some Google search and found out what that emblem came from. It's not a stove, but from a sewing machine. This is a Franklin model from the Domestic Sewing machine company starting 1911.

    That's awesome! I would have never guessed it was from a sewing machine.

    I would defer to what " vferrari " recommends because he has the most obvious experience . That being said , I too am new to this type of machine - but I have several decade's of detecting knowledge and have only had opportunities to hunt trashy sites this year . If you have previous hunting knowledge don't let this machine scare you too much ! I have found by slowing down my coil sweep speed a bit and letting the machine do its thing " regardless of the mode you are in " you WILL have success ! You will have to check out some of those iffy signals to get the hang of what the machine is trying to tell you .
    Im now finding that I enjoy a good trashy site because I get to explore just what this machine is capable of and when I do make a good find there I know I've accomplished something .
    Besides , those trashy sites still have some good stuff to find because most people pass them up !
    Good Luck to you .

    I guess it depends on how you ask the question , If you cant treat someone with a little respect then maybe ignore the question . Not everyone may Know as much as you think you do or even agree with your perspective . The man asked for some basic help and if you don't want to give it that's your prerogative but there is no need to be rude ( and yes you were rude and you know it or you would not be defending yourself so strongly ) .
    Lets just move on OK !

    I haven't been to the site for awhile. It's been rainy and now I've come down with a cold, but I do plan on going back. I think next time out, I may hit some promising looking trashy area that I searched before, but lower my discrimination. I think I may just have to dig and remove a lot of that trash to help show some good finds. I feel there has to be some good finds there, I just need to keep digging.

    I hunted in 2 tones for the first time yesterday. It really makes non ferrous items pop.

    I wanted to report that I hunted this old home site one more time last June for a couple hours without finding too much but iron trash. One old .342 cartridge case and a partial licence plate. I covered a small area and was digging everything. The weeds had gotten very high and the ground very hard. I don't plan on going back until fall after the rains come to make conditions a little easier for digging. I have since gotten a 6" coil which I haven't tried yet. I will try it the next time at this site. I've been gaining more experience with my detector, so hopefully that will help me get more success at this site. I do believe there are good things to find there.

    You'll love the 6 inch coil for working the thick trash. I don't give my Equinox the attention that it deserves, but when I do I usually go out with the 6 inch coil and hit the trashy spots that most would walk away from. I've found plenty of coins mixed in with the trash using Park 1 plus the 6 inch coil.
