    Behold I made myself a new digging tool the digging tool gods would be proud

    Hi all this contraption took me about 40 hrs to build and weld but I got her done. It works great in the sand but not so good in rooted ground (I did not build it for metal detecting but for fun for my kid ) it runs on 120 psi compressed air so i would need a portible air compresser with me but it works awsome in the sand. I thought I would post it here for I new all you guys and gals would appreciate it being metal detectorists and all. As for the beach it digs 1 and a half feet down.... My wife is letting me go detecting tomorrow all day so I am giving the spectra v3 a good run and I am sure I will have a post tomorrow for you all. I hope you all enjoy the pics and HH.....sniper

    Great digging tool!

    You should install a belt driven air compressor and an air tank to use it with.

    That is an awesome machine for a kid. If you have a backyard, you may come home one night and see your child has built an in-ground pool for you.

    Reminds me of Tim Allen and his "Tool Time". I'll bet the two of you had a great time building it.
