    Reunited at a Tot Lot After All These Years

    MisSpeedy and I went detecting at a tot lot in Fair Park
    today.



    Iíve hunted there many times. I can usually find something
    there.

    Today is the first time Iíve been well enough to detect in 6
    days. Iíve had tha Creapin Crudd. Didnít expect anything
    much, but ended up finding a thang that is kind of special
    to me, if no one else.

    This is the pile I left with. Can you see what it is?



    And then I tossed the junk and took a pic of what I wanted
    to save a while. There is a couple of ear rings, a little doggie
    charm, a big red button with a design on it, a cheap ring and
    then there is something kind of special to me.



    Four months ago, I detected this same tot lot and found a
    neat brass thang. I liked it and for some reason itís special
    to me.





    It was under the sand in the tot lot and then about 6 or 8
    inches into the undisturbed ground below the tot lot media.

    I have no way of knowing how old tha thang is, but itís neat.

    Today, about 30í away from where I found that thang, I
    found this thang.



    I knew right off it was part of the other thang.

    Now, after I donít know how many years, the two parts of
    tha thang are reunited.



    Now, whereís the rest of tha thang?

    Happy Hunting,

    Man Scrounger,

    It's tough findin the mate to an ear ring.

    I have found maybe two.

    I have a lot of close calls, but no cigar.

    That ribbon is a clip-on. Kinda like a clip-on tie.

    MisSpeedy is doing great.

    I love the 7" coil, but,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    I'll be darned if the 5.75 don't work better.

    I have two Compadre's. One with a 7" coil.

    That's MrSpeedy.

    One with a 5.75" coil. That's MisSpeedy.

    They are both killer.

    $220 was the total cost of them both.

    Tha brass thang looks like a wind chime to me.

    Happy Hunting,

    Re: Reunited at a Tot Lot After All These Years

    Hay Scrounger,

    Nice to meet a Tesoro user. I got 5 of um.

    You asked:

    yes im into tesoro. love my amigo. whatsa euro sabre.why izzit different?

    A Euro Sabre is a model that was marketed in Europe.

    It is just like the Eldorado, but where the frequency shift

    is on the Eldorado, there is an " Iron ID " switch.

    The switch has an " Iron Blank ". Which cuts out most
    small iron and small foil.

    Switch has an " Audio ". Which gives the iron a low tone.
    In actual use the Audio gives low tone on iron, a double
    tone on pull tabs and gold and larger iron and the regular
    tone on things above pull tab. A pull tab is on the edge,
    so it tends to give broken or bouble tones. So does gold.

    The switch can be turned off and then It's just like an
    Eldorado.

    I like it and the Eldorado. I had an Eldorado and sold it
    because I like the Euro Sabre's Iron ID feature.





    OH,,,, by tha way...........

    Here's my modified Silver Sabre uMax.



    Pretty cool Hugh
