    Again, thanks for all the input!
    Wow Gunsil......no scratched coin in 40 years! I'd really like to watch how you do it as I can't even come close
    to your record. Conceptually, i can't grasp how one can bring dirt up from the bottom of an 8-inch deep hole that is is only
    3 inches in top diameter without using the hand to scoop it up. Trying to "lever" the bottom dirt under & up one side of the
    hole is where (i think for me) the damage danger comes in. Pinpointing accuracy is of major importance of course but one is
    only human!
    And thank you Sandancer for considering the idea. Another "spark" came to my mind......what if we made the mini-post digger
    blades out of that tough carbon-composite fiber some trowels consist of? No scratch there....
    I also worried about cost, but then saw what some people are willing to pay for an Xtreme-brand sand scoop....whoa!

    A carbon fiber trowel is a great idea.....but still need the knife to cut the small circular plug. All depends on the ground one is digging in....will justify the correct tool to use. Those 18 inch Samsons or a Leshche 40 would be ideal if you need to go deeper.....but some places I wouldn't feel comfortable bringing those tools into. Right now using a Premium Makro blade digging tool. And using concentric coils on detectors for city digging is preferred to those DD coils to get the holes smaller if you need to worry about hole size.

    Try a landscape plugger , some are for sod plugs others for planning bulbs, some you stomp on like a shovel some you just use your hand. If you pinpoint well, those may work for you.

    There used to be a device called The Hole Hog of something like that. Maybe you can find a photo and go from there, or find a used one.

    I'll leave it to you to figure out where the opposite goes.

    If your heart is in it you will find a thousand ways to achieve your goal.
    If your heart is not in it you will find a thousand excuses.

    Ouija Board and map dowsing , one and the same. Just tape a map onto the Ouija Board and you have map dowsing.
    Works great if you like wild goose chases and snipe hunts!

    L-rods are obsolete.

    May you never take one single breath for granted.
