I bought this several years ago and used it in fresh water once on the beach once and in a couple of parks. Then I had serious hip and knee trouble. I can't get up off the ground anymore even after a hip replacement and knee surgery.
The Excalibur works great.
The cables are in excellent...
I watched the OBN video about replacing the O-Rings.
Certainly a ground breaking tutuorial.
My Excalibur II has many years of closet time.
On my stick the O-Rings appear good, but they are quite old.
I thought i was going to replace them.
I have two types of silicone, snot and grease.
I misplaced my rechargeable battery pack for quite a while.
I found it and it measures 4.58 volts.
I am going to start charging it but it may be gone.
I just got an AA battery pack, loaded it with energizers and it at 12.92 Volts.

I have been hunting for weeks and cannot find the darn thing. :BangHead:

According to officials in St. Cloud, Fla., glass pickle jars holding more than 2,000 coins shattered while city workers were leveling a 1915 bungalow, turning the demolition into a momentary slot machine...
Prayer request - don't open if you are offended
If you have a moment please add a speedy recovery for Jeff in Havana Florida, in your prayers.
He's an avid detectorist, but his framework is under repair.
I hope his surgeries are successful and he can get back to swinging a loop.
Today was my first day using an Excalibur in the water.
Still learning how to use it but found some things.
Highly mineralized coins, a SS cotter pin, a toe ring, my first ring and I'm pretty sure it's silver.
It's hard to tell which of the coins are pennies and which are dimes.
One of the...
My first find is .62 in various new coins, 21 bottle caps, 26 pull-tabs, 16 pieces of assorted junk.
The green piece of wire was on the top of the soil and I got nothing from the detector. It's fine copper wire, I'm saving it for future testing.
It was a wonderful couple of hours out in the...
