  3. Selling or trading a T2 :)

    If you want a quiet, stable running machine you should trade in for a Minelab. They are a bit more but the outright stability of these machines are amazing. I have used the F-75 LTD and a T-2 and they can be noisy but are still great machines. John DeArmitt Fort Bedford Metal Detectors
  4. Need some etrac help

    When you are in extreamly high trash areas like that you need to do several things to get the best results. 1. DO NOT RUN AUTO +3 SENSITIVITY! That sensitivity is best for open fields. What happens is your overpowering all the responses from the targets in such a small area that your blowing...
  5. My Boot Pistol

    Thanks for all the great information. I just got a chance to get back on here and look. I knew it had alot of age to it. How it got from Belgium to here in PA is just crazy. Just got to love this hobby. Thanks for all the comments. :thumbsup: John DeArmitt, Fort Bedford Metal Detectors
  6. My Boot Pistol

    Hey everyone, Been awhile since I posted but with everything going on its hard to keep up. We go out every weekedn but just no extra time to post. Ok, so we were looking for a lost CW camp when Keith and I stubled across an area in the woods with grass. No other grass in the area, just this...
  7. What the heck is the thing with iron oxide?

    Well unfortunately there isnt too much to be done. Even very expensive machines will have this problem, just depends on the depth of the machine. Once you get past the discrimination depth capabilities of the machine, iron will always sound good. Also, it depends on the shape of the iron. If the...
  8. Tesoro verses minelab

    Thank you! Someone else that gets it and put it in such a way anyone can understand. :notworthy:
  9. Tesoro verses minelab

    Ok, normally I stay out of these debates because its not worth it. But not all Minelab owners have swelled egos. Technically that could be said of any person with an affection to any detector brand. Personally I look at this kind of stuff as childish. GROW UP! I'll tell you I use a Minelab...
  10. A Couple of Etrac Questions From a New Owner

    The rain jacket is a very tight fit. Best thing to do is strech it out with your hands a little and try again. You have to wiggle it on, but at least you know it will not come off while detecting. When you turn on recovery deep it allows the machine to get those whispers. What you give up is...
  11. Newbie: Am I crazy or have I found fellow members just like me?

    As a newbie you a little less crazy than some of us on here :laughing9:. You will eventually have your own machine(s), I myself have 2 machines with alternating backups :laughing9:. Once you know the machine inside and out and you get a nice signal and just know from the tone what it is, sure...
  12. x-terra 505 vs e-trac

    I have swung that E-Trac for 8 hours and I have no problem with it. I even have a SunRay inline probe on the thing. Yes I am a younger guy, but that doesnt mean anything. My father-in-law and business partner Bob swings his E-Trac with probe as long as I do. I will say if your not use to a heavy...
  13. F75 SE bent shaft

    Make it as short as possible and look again, if its still off it is possible that the lock could be damaged but Fisher is pretty good with thier product quality. The other thing to check would be you may have actually put the coil on the shaft upside down, usually it doesnt matter but sometimes...
  14. x-terra 505 vs e-trac

    I hate to tell you but they are not even in the same ballpark. Now it all depends what kind of hunting you want to do. If you want to be a relic hunter like I am, no question the E-Trac. Coin shooting you would be best to stay with the 505 because even though the E-Trac would still be better...
  15. Minelab E-trac Coil test

    The improvements are even better in the field. I use the 12x10 SEF on my E-Trac and it gets much better depth and target seperation than the stock coil. I use the quick mask feature and have my iron turned down to about 27 on "bad" sites and 30 on "good" sites. I am a Relic hunter and try to run...
  16. understanding my e-tracs signals & sounds

    Re: understanding my e-trac's signals & sounds Practice, Practice and more Practice! The best thing you can do is take all the targets you have found in your career and run them under the coil. Listen to the sound first before you look at VDI numbers. As we all know, VDI's though helpful are...
  17. IM trying to decide on a Minelab/Etrac, or a GarrettATPRO? HELP!

    I am a E-Trac user and know this machine inside and out. The first is that this machine works perfectly near and under any EMI emitting source. E-Trac will not make a peep, not even near a GPX-5000. Most other machines go ape s*** near pulse machines. Once noise canceled, I can detect 5-10 feet...
  18. Safari Weight/Swing Speed/Armrest

    Both my father-in-law and I use the E-Trac with Inline probe on it. Niether of us find it heavy and we have had 8 hours of swinging in one day. They are heavier than Fishers, a little heavier than Whites. One thing to keep in mind is that the longer you have that lower shaft, the further you...
  19. 1920 National Motorcycle Gypsy Tour Watch Fob

    I have actually recieved some very good offers from a very interested collector, one or two made me drool. However, I am sticking to the original plan of returning it to the land owner for letting us hunt his property, more return trips planned. I never thought this piece would attract as much...
