    Metal Detecting

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 been testing for 23 years on just about all LRL and dowsing rods and I give this a A+

    Well all I can say is that if what you have stated is the truth then take yourself and the LRL to a mining company and show them how easy it is to find gold, silver diamonds, water or whatever ,then instead of defending the contraptions on this forum you could be out becoming rich and very well respected and will be achieving great things for your country and possibly all humanity. Also irrespective of what you Americans think of Dick Smith in Australia, his offer of a very large cash reward for being able to demonstrate that these LRLs that require psychic power to work actually do work and that you are able to consistantly locate particular deliberately hidden items of various materials still stands. If you are serious then contact Dick and set up a test. There is big money to be had as well as fame and fortune and great respect from all humanity. Just imagine what you could do for all of the people of the world who are struggling to simply get enough water for their every day need. You could locate water, gold , diamonds etc without the need to pay vast sums of money to drilling and ore testing companies
