Electroscope Metal Detector
Does anybody know or have any oppinions on this machine, I found one on albuquerque craigs list for $400 the claims seem a little outlandish to me for a detector that only uses a 9volt battery,claims to find gold and silver at depths of up to 12feet.
I took the road less traveled------------------- and now I'm lost

You could use a coat hanger cut into L rods and be just as effective. Clark Howard should have these on his show as one of the many scams these days.

They had to withdraw the British advertising in the end. Most ads were along the lines that "Electroscopes by Thomas" won first, second and third place at the so and so rally. Turned out that they only allowed Electroscopes to enter !

These LRLs only have a chance to work if you are psychic and that is pretty much NOOOO CHAAAANCE!!! Even then you will need a very vivid imagination to convince yourself that it is working... Otherwise forget them...........WEEEELLLL! forget them anyway.........How many psychics do you know who have found their Eldorado (and are now mining magnates) using one of these useless contraptions.........NOT ONE, ZIP, ZULTCH, ZERO, NONE, NADA, NOT ANYONE.

save your money and use some cotton reels and coat hangers to get the same result

The Electroscope is NOT a metal detector. It is a dowsing rod, no better and no worse than a forked stick, a bent coat hanger or a piece of welding rod. It contains absolutely no circuitry that can discriminate or differentiate between diverse metals. It is a totally passive device that is incapable of either transmitting, receiving or amplifying electrical signals of any kind. There is no physical or electrical connection between the handle and the circuit that can cause the meter to deflect or the case to pivot when a buried object is "detected."

They did in fact make a more normal type detector. I think it was called the 301 though it might have been a 501. God my mind is going, I use to be able to remember all this stuff.

some years back when they were advertising a lot i went to the dealers to examine one .
i held it in my hand and it spun round and round without stopping .you could tilt it one way and then another.
i smelt a rat right away .
a bent coat hanger mounted in a cotton reel sprang to mind.

Assume for the sake of discussion it is a TR/IB metal detector with the forward antenna to transmit and a receive coil somewhere in the housing. It will send a ground wave along the surface of the ground and a coin will procuce a very weak return signal directed above. How would any receive coil in the housing receive a signal? Or if it is pulse induction and the antenna is both the transmist and receive antenna, the same problem of sensing a very weak return signal exists. If I see one for sale at a flea market for around $10, I'll buy just to fool around with it.

LRL fraud debunked
It doesn't detect metal at all. It detects three things: gravity, tilt, and wishful thinking.
If a person, having been informed what it is, still wants to buy it, I say go for it!

I bought one about 20 years ago.....I tested the machine before I bought it. I don't know what makes it work....but it worked well for me.
My step-father had gotten me into MD'ing. He told me before I bought it...it wouldn't work. After I bought it I asked him to bury some silver dollars in his yard and I would come and find them. He had buried silver dollars in 3 different locations on the farm. I found the first location within 10 minutes just by making a simple scan across his back yard. It took me another 10-15 minutes to locate the second batch of silver dollars. The third location he had hidden down by a field in his front yard. That was easily located also. His best friend had buried his MD'ing treasures in his back yard. It took me less than 5 minutes to locate where he had that buried. Made believers out of both of them. I hear all the reviews about those machines and there certainly are a lot of people that say they don't work. I just know from what I experienced when I used to own one.

i have a new field scope by Thomas.took it out to a old beach I found a 1943 half at 35-40 ft in 3 feet of water and 7" of mud and sand
I also found a merc and 6 Wheaties and locked on to a 5 cents at 15' on relics I found a rat tail file at 24' it is vary easy to use.it is batt operated.
I have been testing for 23 years on just about all LRL and dowsing rods and I give this a A+

If anyone actually buys one, will someone please send him my direction? I have some land about 100 miles west of San Franciso that I want to sell him for only $400.

Yeah just Google Dick or have a look around face book. He is not in hiding anywhere. If you truely believe you can do these things then you will find a way to locate the man.
I wish you good fortune.
Yes the human body can cure itself from many problems. So can wild animals and the way each does this is the same. As a matter of fact wild animals are better at it than us. Some can even regrow brocken legs and tails and eyes and wings.
Grabbing hold of a couple of sticks or pivoted bits of wire or box of disconnected electronic bits and pieces can in no way at all connect a human being to an underground gold nugget, water supply, diamond or hidden Spanish treasure. or single coin via an imagined psychic transmission of ions or electrical energy no matter how much or strongly a person may like to believe it can.

God! I hate Hippies!
Well on a more positive note. Your new "gold only" detector will make you the first trillionaire. Congrats!

What can I say? Your inner self belief is unbreakable so I wish you good fortune and mate if you can do what you have just stated while using supernatural and psychic power then Dick Smiths cash reward is in the bag for you.
Even if you have to get a loan from the bank to come to Australia to set up a test with Dick smith, you cannot loose and will return home a millionare. As matter of fact I would not be suprised if DS would go to The States to meet you and set up the tests over there.
I will say however that I suggest that you donot get into debt over this because you WILL FAIL THE TEST just like a truck load of the worlds self proclaimed best psycics have failed
You are not alone in your belief that you can do these spooky things but untill now there has not been a single dowser or psychic on the planet who has been able to prove their claimed ability actually exists.
