    Question What trash do you find the most other than, tabs, caps, foil, screws, nails?

    For me it's cable connectors. Every place I detect that has a cable connection nearby I can find connectors dating all the way back to the 80s. These cable guys just chuck those things everywhere and have been for 30 years and they ring up as a hard solid signal of silver.

    Some places I detect I find blobs of what looks to be once molten aluminum. Is that from welding? I usually find that stuff near the lake.

    The molten aluminum is from beer cans tossed into camp fires, We all refer to them as fire nuggets. My trash I find a lot of is gum foil or candy bar foil I hunt parks and playgrounds a lot.

    Car and house keys, although some don't consider them as trash.

    Those triangle sickle mower pieces used to be a big problem when i ran the AT pro, but my equinox seems to ignore them

    I'm mostly on old home/farm sites in the woods

    THIS! I had a collection going at one point. But keep digging them, because one out of every 300 or so is going to be a gold ring.

    That is so weird... I don't think I have ever even found one of those. Do you detect schoolyards a lot?

    Yea I'd have to say weights but I don't count those as trash since my first hobby is fishing. Some sinkers go into the box, others get melted down and made into new sinkers.
