  1. Sand/Water Scoops

    Another arm chair detectorists crawls out from the good ol' boy network rock to try to discredit the new guy. It will always amaze me what people want to believe in to make themselves feel better about themselves. Perception is not reality, unless you talk to someone with a very skewed sense of...
  2. Hookah system

    Draeger LDV Model BRXC0344. I'm not sure if it is immediately good for underwater use. I'm picking it up tomorrow from the Post. I have read on some dive forums that it is modifiable. I figure for $10 it will be no major loss if I ruin it modifying it. I'll be able to salvage the pig tail...
  3. Sand/Water Scoops

    Makes no difference. The gulf coast of Florida is not know for it's radical surfing conditions or hosting large competitions. Florida surf has nothing on California or Hawaii. I lived in Pensacola and there are more long slow rollers than anything. It's not like the north shore of Hawaii where...
  4. Sand/Water Scoops

    I would suggest a $25 shovel for rocky river beds and a $10 floating sifter. Work smarter not harder. You have to clear a scoop of rocks larger that a dime you don't need to clear a shovel. If you have to use that much force to get your scoop in the ground I would suggest re-thinking your...
  5. Sand/Water Scoops

    Large scoops are unnecessary. In any conditions, sand or dirt, the vast majority of our finds are fresh drops. Most drops will be found in less than 4" to 6". The amount of material to be moved is best done by a small scoop. Even under water when snorkeling or diving, you can check Sandman's old...
  6. Coin Depths ?

    It the growth of grass that pushes the coins deeper. provided no new dirt gets dumped on top. I'm new MD'ing realized this. Most finds are fresh dumps and will be in less than 4 inches. Older coins will probably be deeper. Just think of the ground as being a recycling center. Grass clippings and...
  7. Sand/Water Scoops

    Sandman- They still did not refund the $10 difference. I'm not here to promote a bad product or bad business practice. The scoop is over sized and it's over priced. I could have saved myself $75 buying a smaller stainless scoop that cost less. And I'm going to let everyone looking to buy a new...
  8. Scoops With Handle Or Pole???

    I would avoid the stealth scoop. It is built like a tank, but it is overpriced and too big. No scoop needs to be that big and move that amount of sand. Smaller scoops cost less and you wont end up busting your butt moving tons of sand in large amounts. And you will save money on a smaller scoop...
  9. Hookah system

    Update on the compressor. I have no way to measure the compressor I bought on ebay. I had sent an email to the manufacturer. This is what I received in reply: This compressor has the following ratings: Minimum Pressure: 20 PSI Minimum Flow: 2.56 CFM The 2660CE32-190 is...
  10. Sand/Water Scoops

    I would avoid the 720i. It's built well but its size makes it useless and difficult to use. It is also overpriced. There are smaller less expensive scoops that can do the same thing. On top of it all the company has bad business practices. They screwed me out of $10. I had ordered the 720i with...
  11. Sunspot stealth scoops..... Props to chuck

    News on the 720i. I would avoid this scoop like the plague. Its is well built and heavy duty, but over sized and completely unnecessary. And on top of that over priced. Smaller scoops that are less expensive do the same job. Their business practices are poor too. I had ordered the 720i with...
  12. Anybody got plans for building a good, heavy duty portable sifter?

    Go to wal mart and get the pool pool noodles that are thick and meaty they cost about 2 bux. and then go to the home depot and shop the concrete isle. My home depot had these black plastic tubs that are designed for mixing motor. They run about 5 bux. Pick up some 16" zip ties. Bring everything...
  13. Stealth 720 vs Digatto T-Rex

    I recently purchased the 720i and it is too big. It is over built and there is no need to move the amount of material it is built to move. And on top of it they sent me the wrong scoop. I ordered and paid for the 720i with 1/4" holes and they sent me the 1/2" hole scoop. They have yet to refund...
  14. Hookah system

    Power is the downside. It would probably be easier to machine a new shaft that extends through the motor and compressor, or hookup an external 12v motor. I'm not sure if there is a 12v motor adaptable. I don't want to tear it apart to find out if I can adapt a pully system that runs through the...
  15. Hookah system

    I think it will. Not to be confrontational Silver Fiend, but what makes you think it wont. Here is a link to the compressor stats. Compressors - WOB-L - 2660 Series | GD-Thomas http://www.gd-thomas.com/productsubcategorylist.aspx?tp=pv&tc=10698 Also look at the 2665 series same design with...

  17. First Time detecting Can Slaw Beach

    I mark today as my official first day of real metal detecting. I went a few days ago at a local park and pulled 47 cents, what looked like a junk ring, a washer or 2, and minimal can slaw all in an easy two hours. Today I went on a five hour epic hunt at North Avenue beach in Chicago and ended...
  18. Excalibur II alkaline battery pack

    Where can I get the heat shrink that fits on the end of the Excal II battery pack? I have an Alkaline pod and I want to put an after market re-chargable in it and would like to add to the water resistance of the pod by sealing the end off with the heat shrink. I would use electrical tape but...
  19. Hello from Illinois

    I just received my new Excal II from Kellyco today. :hello2: So I thought it is time to introduce myself after lurking for the past few months. :hello: I plan to hit some inland beaches, lakes, and do the majority of my hunting on Chicago's lakefront. Hoping to make a trip to the city tomorrow...
  20. Finds Gold: My mission is not complete in the beach so far....
