    Fisher 1266X Useage Tips

    It has been a long time since I have used my detector (turns out to be a 1266X Fisher) and I need guidance using it - have forgot all about the controls. Someone want to share or direct me to a site with usage information?

    I think you can get on Fishers website and download a copy of the manual for your 1266, give it a try. Good luck hunting

    O R has it right. If you move your mouse to the bottom of their guide, you will get the chance to download the guide to your PC. TTC

    Thanks, guys, I will do that. It would be good to hear from users that have picked up useful info just from their field experience, too.

    Field experience:

    I use my 1266's for relics, period.
    It has a dual disc with a toggle (that 'trigger' thing sticking out from under the chassis). Depending on soil conditions, I run mine 0 (Disc 1) and 3 (Disc 2), although show me a relic hunter who's passing signals because of disc, I'll show you an inexperienced relic hunter. You should be digging it all. Disc-3 will cut a deep belt plate, minieball or dagger right out of existence. Relics, especially battlefield stuff, means there's a real potential for finding stuff in that 12"-16" deep range, even deeper.
    A lot of your 'coin shooters' started out as relic hunters but gave up and started chasing pocket change after their tenth 16" hole that yeilded a tractor bolt.

    Also, these can be chattery, which drives some people nuts. You'll learn what constitutes a signal versus chatter.

    I'm not a relic hunter, per se, but I am digging OLD foundations right now. Square nails, calf weaning collar, etc. ALL are iron.... meaning you will miss some of the MARKERS for a site if you disc out iron. Experienced relic hunters can BUILD the homestead all over again simply by digging everything. Go for it! TTC
