    Thank you all for your posts! I hunted a different location tonight and found a few pennies, a dime, a lead sinker, several pull tabs, beer caps and aluminum trash, and ONLY one rusty nail and a bolt.

    Appears you are doing better these past couple years and your interest is growing.

    Good job ..................
    Simon! Nice surprise. I almost missed your post.
    I have been braver in posting finds this year.

    I saw you posting after my post and did not reply so I thought maybe mine was in bad taste so I had just prepared to delete it when you posted. Glad you are finding things. The pictures of your land look like they should be hiding artifacts and maybe an old cabin remnant or two.

    I donít even know what a chain cent is. LOL That was actually over in the area where the old barn was. We had it torn down, parted out, burned and buried. Then I started metal detecting hobby. Wish I was in it before we did all that.

    Hmm. That sounds about like what happens to me. Maybe I am a little overthinking it and a lot of lacking in confidence.

    How do I like it? Well itís heavier than the other one I was using. Thus, I kept going back to the old one. Now itís on the fritz and I am forced to learn the ATMAX. It does find more that I missed with the Delta. It finds deeper and smaller stuff. I bought it because I was going to brave underwater detecting in the big creek at the other end of our property. The tornadoes ruined that for me. Itís a mess.
    I noticed! My midnight raid went a lot easier! Trouble was, I couldn't tell where you'd already looked.

    I've only had two serious detectors in all my "career". The "Groundhog" and the "ATPro". Both have some heft. I found that I had to experiment with the length of the shaft to get them close to an easier balancing point. Either side of the balance point and they get heavier. I was a little surprised at how long I had to make them. On the plus side though, the longer length gives a lot broader swing. Cover more ground with less effort.

    Lately though, I've been wearing one of those posture correcting elastic things. It does tend to support my back and shoulders better when I swing.

    Talk about a bear! I used the Groundhog for my water hunting way back when. With a ten inch coil!! What did I know....I was sooo much younger then! Found a lot though!

    Something about tornadoes puzzle me. The way they tear up and scatter whole towns....I wonder why there aren't more whole coin collections just lying around on the surface.

    Be safe Sis!

    I guess the Max has iron audio. My Pro does. Anyway on those questionable high tones just hit the IA button and sweep across the target. If you get a iron grunt on either side or both you may not want to dig that one. But back to the chain. The reason you got a high and a low tone was the rust on the chain. If that had been a new chain you wouldn't have gotten that low tone.

    So, are ya saying that if I make the shaft longer, itíll be easier? Not so hard on my arms?

    Oh and be careful around the porch. Mama skunk and her kits are under there.
