    Claims that Metal Detector Finds Silver at 10FT Deep?

    Heard this on Episode 2 of Discovery Channels "Rebel Gold" this week:

    That's what I think too, but I had to rewind the DVR to make sure I heard it right.

    Curious if it was just a mistake in the voice over script or a "producer embellishment" decision to write the script using 10 ft instead of 10 inches

    It detects 10ft deep once you have removed the first 9ft of soil.

    Reminds me of a Discovery show where they were showing a firetruck factory. Made a claim the CNC laser could cut with 1 millionth of an inch accuracy.
    Total BS. I used to work for the CNC mfg. Had an accuracy of ~ +/-.004" per meter.

    Who would dig it at that depth?

    and then only if the target was a Greyhound bus parked over a soda can, lying next to a bottlecap rubbing up against a zinc penney..

    Why isn't every metal detector at least water resistant? A $7 drugstore flashlight is guaranteed for life to 10 feet. If a squirrel piss*s onto the face of my sov... well.... thats another forum.

    I think there using Fisher metal detectors, my guess since Diggers use Garret, Fisher is trying to up the sales numbers....
