    Smokey,
    Were they Beatles lyrics transferred from cassette? (your daughter would be too young to remember them, but these things come back)

    Can you believe that "You Can't Do That" is now 55 years old?

    Meg, I don't know what she used, but probably something from a movie. Too many sites, not enough time.

    Great write up Smokey. The tejon is one of those you either get it or you don't machines. I have had more than a couple over the years and every time I let one go to try something else, I always regret it and buy another one.

    You have the Golden Sabre, and I have the Royal Sabre. And, my only trouble with that was the battery holder. The holder fit into the housing too tightly, and eventually cracked and broke trying to insert it into the housing.

    Bleeohio, are you me? I had a Tejon a few years ago, it did very well and soon after my local dealer showed me the Deus and I got it and sold the Tejon. I'm going to attempt to try NOT to sell any more detectors from my now enlarged stable.

    Exactly. I think the battery holders are still available and cheap. Good luck finding a battery holder for the ADS. I bought another example for spares like the battery holder.

    Ha, maybe, as right now I have my Deus a tejon and an orx just for grins. One would think I'd have learned a lesson by now so I'm gonna hang my hat on those three. (for now)

    Wanted to ask also, what was the soil reading in that area? Maybe had some influence on the outcome?

    Rasco, no V wasn't in on this trip. He lives a couple hours from me.

    Bleeohio, since I have the Deus I don't think I will try an Orx. And the soil is moderately hot, if I remember right the soil is around an 82.

    It was an eye opener for me. I became partial to minelabs because I like the tones but the instant response and audio texture of the analog machines is so intuitive for me. I was quite surprised how sensitive to small stuff the Tesoro was and that it went deeper than the Deus or Nox. I have been feeling like my Nox isn't getting me very deep in difficult soil. I cleaned out the cover but need to do a test garden to figure out what the settings are doing with regard to depth. I still can barely find the settings in the Nox lol. I just turn it on multi freq field two and try n remember to ground balance. Unless I m at the beach then its beach 2 in the water.

    Tommy, you can't find the settings because you coated every machine you touched this weekend in thick mud! True! I'm still getting it off the Tejon.

    The Tejon on both sand mild soils and bad ground was at least a couple inches deeper than the Nox 600.

    I have always heard and seen good things about the Tejon.

    Never owned one... BUT if ever the opportunity arises in my face with a thick stack in my pocket... ya just never know.

    I got a rush of cash this past week and bought three machines. Poor thing. Two Tejons and a White's TDI SL. The SL is for one specific site and it's not a very wise purchase, however, it's that type machine or getting skunked, however I did find two Confederate "I" buttons there a few weeks ago, so skunked is relative. The Deus nailed the "I" buttons between holes from Equinox users and A GPZ owner. I think GPZ is right. He went right over it, I was watching the guys and going behind them and between them.

    I had the Tejon and sold it to DeepseekerADS. It is light and well balanced and goes deeper than any machine i have ever had or do own. If i were a relic hunter with permissions to old battlefields i would never EVER give up the Tejon. But, i pretty much stick to old houses in town where coins and jewelry tend to be. It is rare for me to have to dig more than 8 inches for a target so the Tejon is a bit of overkill for me.
    I still have the Compadre for those trashy places and tot lots.
    Dig till you drop!

    FYI the deepest good target I ever dug was with my Tesoro Lobo, on November 19, 1989. A 3 pound cannonball from the Brandywine battlefield at about 28" deep. I had the dickens of a time getting it out of that hole.
