Carl-NC's latest activity

  • There is just the Law of Diminishing Returns, where doubling the coil current buys you an extra 1/4" of depth but kills your batteries...
  • Carl-NC replied to the thread Possible Oak Island Solution.
    Theories about Oak Island treasure are a lot like Flat Earth theories. The vast majority who view it as nonsense aren't going to waste...
  • Carl-NC replied to the thread I was a bit surprised!.

  • Carl-NC replied to the thread White's MXT Screen Problem.
    Most likely a bad connection. There is a ribbon cable from the control box to the pod and at each end it plugs into a connector on the...
  • Whatever you did to get that photo will give the same results whether there are coins buried or not.
  • Carl-NC replied to the thread Atom collider experiment.
    This has been true since cave men experimented with fire. Thank God for vastly arrogant men. As to the OP's question, no, the...
  • First Texas won't repair these. It's a BFO from 1970, two bankruptcies ago for Bounty Hunter. If it doesn't work, it's a wall hanger.
  • This is a BFO model from roughly 1970. It was one of Bounty Hunter's first models (BH 1, 2, & 3) and was two bankruptcies ago. Sorry to...
