  1. Dents Run questions

    Several threads scattered around on this topic, but I'll start a fresh one: The earliest written account of the Dents Run treasure I've seen is an article in the July 1974 issue of Treasure magazine, written by "Sandra Gardner." As is typical of treasure mag articles, there are no references...
  2. Dell Winders is gone

    Dell Winders passed away today, July 15, 2019. This has been posted elsewhere on TNet, but the LRL forums are where Dell called home. Dell & I had many heated debates over LRLs and were often very rude toward each other on the forums. Several years ago I told Dell I was done, and despite...
  3. Dowsing rod frame

    Darke, in response to your question in another thread... here is the frame I designed & built: The motivation for this was discussions on the old TNet dowsing/LRL forum (this was ~2004/2005) , where many people insisted that the reason the rods cross was because of some kind of target field...
  4. MECO & Satellite Surveys

    Anyone ever dealt with MECO or Norman Haynes or Jerry Bradford? Far as I can tell, Haynes has been looking for gold in the Philippines for maybe 20 years now, living off money from "investors." With a promise of massive returns, of course. I've been reading/watching their ~monthly reports for 3...
  5. đŸ™‹ WANTED Dowsing rods & LRLs

    I'm especially looking for a Dar-nel rod, Carl Anderson mineral rods, Spanish dip needles from ~1900, documentation for Spanish dip needles, and any 1970's/80's era LRL. No Electroscopes, but I would like to find a "Kinetic Magnum Shield" accessory. For most of this stuff, even a loaner would...

  7. Art, yer gonna love this...

    For almost 10 yrs I've offered my LRL "challenge," primarily to call out LRL manufacturers. But off and on I've extended it to ordinary LRL users. At least twice I've come close to having the challenge accepted; Bob Yocum signed the contract but then refused to follow through, and Mike Tune...
  8. Random digging beats LRLs... again

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/eu_austria_buried_treasure When the discovery was announce, local treasure hunter Charles Winfitzhung immediately declared that he had located the treasure over a year ago with his Zapzinger LRL. Said Winfitzhung, "I wuz a-huntin' fer fosslized coral 'bout 10 miles...
  9. Antique Dowsing Rod

    In my collection of dowsing & LRL devices, my favorite is the one shown below. I know little about it, other than what I found in "Doodlebug Edition of Treasure Trails" by Sanschi (1938). Sanschi describes a device called the "Electric Flashlight Treas-o-meter" (also shown below) but his version...
  10. Belief in Dowsing kills another 125 people

    More car bombs went off in Baghdad today, killing 125. I heard this on NPR driving home: In Parliament, lawmakers demanded to know why the government hasn't improved security after the previous bombings. Hassan al-Shimmery, a member of Parliament from the Fadheela Party, said the government...
  11. New water detector

    I'm curious what different folks are looking for in the next u/w detector development. That is, if you could wish for the perfect detector, what would it be? What are the best attributes of existing designs? What is on the wish-list? - Carl
  12. New Beach & SW detector

    New Beach & SW detector Let's suppose you could help define the next new beach/SW detector. What would you want? What are the best attributes of existing products? Cases, coils, circuitry, batteries, response, etc. What new features? This is not just an exercise for fun, very likely it will...
  13. Has anyone ever tried this... UPDATE: I asked the bank

    I live in a small rural town. The local bank (where I do have accounts) has a coin machine inside. You walk in, dump all your coins in the hopper, and it counts what you have and prints a receipt. Take the receipt to the teller, and they give you cash. I would love to be able to buy these coins...
  14. Not really CRH but a heckavu find...

    I was putting together a small cache of various coins to give someone, and ran across -- not one -- but two 1921 Peace dollars. These were in a large box of silver I swear I've gone completely through, no idea how I missed these. Only VF condition but exciting nonetheless. Truly a...
  15. Question for dowsers

    This is more for dowsers... If you dowse a location, then use a metal detector to check the location, how far out from the dowsed spot would you metal detect and still consider it a successful dowse? That is, would a 1-foot radius be acceptable? 2 feet? I'm sure different dowsers have different...

  18. A Test for Sandsted

    Sandsted, on 12/12 you stated, "I've deliberately tested myself dating coins." Here is a test proposal: I will mail you 10 coins, sealed in a way that they are tamper-proof, for you to dowse and identify the dates. You may dowse them at your leisure, completely free of the pressures and...
  19. Dowsing test

    Dell complains that using a double-blind protocol to test dowsing is unfair. He calls my challenge (and Randi's) a fraud. Dell also says that dowsing should not be held to a higher standard than ordinary guessing. OK... I invite Dell to describe a test protocol that fairly evaluates dowsing...
  20. Dowsing test

    Normally I don't comment on private tests I've done. Since JD has already given a pretty blunt account of the test, and since several people have asked, I'll describe what we did. The test was this past weekend, at JD's home town, in a park he selected. I brought 6 short pieces of 1x12 wood...
