  2. Can anyone tell me what type this is?

    great looking piece very nicely made
  3. Such a thing a too trashy?

    At old homesteads there will be many nails and iron pieces all over.. Go slow and possibly turn down sensitivity a little--think of locations in the yard where there may have been more action-- maybe a clothes line or a big old tree or stump, maybe in a line to where the outhouse or well would...
  4. Complaining has been my downfall - true confessions of THIS detectorist!

    When I'm writing on a subject and it is being read by someone else it is not as good a read if I keep using the same words--site, location, spot, place, field, park, school, beach, homestead, grove, swimming hole, stream, bridge,tot lot, playground ----metal detector, unit, machine, tool, toy...
  5. a simple question

    My question-when using an ace 250 a signal is never guaranteed -- for example a good solid high tone will sometimes be a deep piece of iron or a coin-silver or copper--so should I also believe that iron signals are not always going to be accurate--like can a deep iron signal be a coin or good...

    Thanks skippy nice post--well written and thought out--I have also been married for 19 years--my wife has been sick for all of it--hospitals, doctors, medications, false diagnosis, and yes the depression-poor girl--your story is a little glimmer of hope.

  10. new to the treasure hunting world

    Welcome from Mass. Ct has many great areas to detect--lots of history there--I have family all over there--and with lots of history comes lots of trash so a little piece of advise you have to dig a lot of trash but it is worth it. Don't get discouraged-just keep at it you will eventually get...

  15. jewelry mode or all metal ???

    Thanks Skippy, lots of good advice--for a long time I would only dig solid signals- I have evolved and learned my machine quite a bit but still have a lot to learn. I have never made a test garden I'm sure it would be helpful in learning mixed signals. I still end up digging deep iron that I...
  16. jewelry mode or all metal ???

    Thanks Bill, I've been hitting this one field for a few years now--it's been real nice to me--I'm getting down to just low signals and broken trashy ones--lots of foil but a few goodies a cool cross necklace that was also a little 1 inch knife. I don't find many necklaces or bracelets unless...

  19. jewelry mode or all metal ???

    When I am out hunting I am in all metal mode. I have my sensitivity at 8 sometimes 9 when soil and trash amounts permit it. I usually ignore the iron and dig all other signals. Obviously digging takes the most time when you are digging lots of targets. I find gold and silver, but like all of...
