  1. XP Water Kit Case Torn!

    I got really into water hunting this past year and spent a couple hundred hours waist deep hunting last summer. I have mentioned this on here before, but I used the XP waterproof kit because it was a cheap insurance policy in case something got flooded. I had a friend whose remote got flooded...

  5. A Dandy, an Elephant, a Teacup, some Iron and Brass

    I got out last week after work a couple evenings and turned up some interesting relics as well as a KG and 1861 fatty IHP. Some interesting iron turned up as well and it just came out of the electrolysis tank today. This is the tail piece to a early musket trigger guard. I searched all over...
  6. HF Coil in iron; advice needed...

    Does anyone have experience running a HF coil in THICK iron that also contains BIG iron yet? If so, does anyone have any settings that help out in that environment? When I say "thick" iron, I mean a nail or a piece of barrel strap every 3 or 4 inches in every direction.... its "machine gun"...
  7. Colonial Silver Knee Buckle, Capped Dime, Awesome LC, and more...

    Last weekend, I was able to get a full weekend of hunting in and it was great to spend a couple days outdoors finding some history. I had been having skunked water hunts the last month or so, so it was great to finally get my coil over a few keepers. I put in a lot of hours last weekend and...
  8. Above and beyond customer service

    I've been buying from Fort Bedford for a couple years now. Keith has always spent a lot of time answering questions and helping me with anything I need. I didn't think Fort Bedford could have any better customer service.... Until yesterday. I've been wanting a new coil for my Deus for a year...

    Its been a very slow year for me detecting and it had been about 5 weeks since I last went detecting. But, I was able to get out for a bit last week totaling about 16 hours in the field. It was HOT and slow going with lots of bugs! However, I did end up with some really cool items, my...
  10. XP Deus US Warranty

    Has anyone ever had an issue getting a hold of someone at Detector Electronics Corp for a Deus warranty at 508-460-6244? Before I knew to ask for Moe, I called last fall about a coil cover issue I was having. There wasnt anything on their automated system that said "For XP Deus Warranty press...
  11. 1807 DBHC, 1858 FE, Cufflinks, Buttons and Awesome Iron

    I got out a couple times last weekend and came home with a whole mess of keeper iron pieces! I've been processing iron all week and everything just came out of the hot wax tonight, so I figured I'd get my post together. First the non-ferrous. I found a nice 1807 Half Cent, a toasted Classic...
  12. 1812 Buttons, Rattail Spoon, Shoe Buckle and more...

    Steve and myself were invited by our good buddy Abe for a few days of hunting in his neck of the woods. My hunts are usually last minute, so I typically head out alone, however hunting with two great friends is a highlight for me. Between the hiking and laughing, we all managed to find some...
  13. MI-6 LED Charging (manual typo)

    I wanted to give you guys a heads up on a typo in the manual that arrived with my MI-6. I got my MI-6 yesterday, paired it, messed with it, and finally decided to full charge it. But I realized I didn't know how to tell WHEN it was fully charged. So I looked at the manual that it came with...
  14. KG1 Half Penny, Awesome Iron, a Compass and 25 Buttons

    I got out a few days after work last week for a total of about 10 hours of hunting at a few different spots. I scored a well worn, but still ID-able King George I half penny. I also got a beautiful hand wrought complete hoe blade from a colonial site. I dug a second one at the same site...
  15. Civil War Hunt Finds

    I just got back from my first DIV hunt and had a ton of fun. Last summer I picked up a GPX4500 to add a pulse machine to my relic hunting arsenal. Prior to the DIV hunt I maybe had about 10 hours swinging the GPX and I sort of knew what it was telling me, but I wasn't really good with it...
  16. Silver pocket watch and a few buttons.

    I haven't been able to get out much lately due to work and house projects. I'm finally getting around to posting a cool find from last week. I got out for a couple hours last Monday before the snow storm hit. It was a pretty bad hunt and after 2 hours I had a couple flat buttons and the front...
  17. Ceramics v4!! WHAT...

    So I saw this when the fist v4 advert was released a few weeks ago. The advert says you can use negative disc to find ceramics! I thought this was a French->English translation issue. I figured what they meant was that negative disc would allow us to find even smaller iron, leading to trash...
  18. Complete Shoe Buckle, Coppers and Relics

    I had a slow start with detecting this year between work and family obligations as well as uncooperative weather. I have been working on some new permissions and doing research, but it seemed every time I was able to get out, either a site was unavailable or it rained\snowed. For the last...

    I have a $200 Kellyco gift certificate that I am selling for $150. They do not carry the brand of detector that I use and I have doubles of about every accessory that I could want\need! Therefore, I would like to make this a win-win if someone wants to save money on their next Kellyco...
  20. 2016 Raised the bar for me - annual wrap-up

    I started detecting in the mid 1990's and hit it hard for a few years before life and work took over my free time. About 4 years ago, I got back into this incredible hobby and realized a lot had changed... the biggest change is we have The Internet now and I discovered there are a bunch of...
