  1. Is nobody using their Tesoro lately?

    Just noticing the fewer and fewer posts lately. Are people using different detectors these days? My excuse is that I haven’t been feeling good; going through nasty chemo treatments (lymphoma) so haven’t been detecting. Hope to get out soon, though. ^_^
  2. A Nice Lookin’ Bandido II MicroMAX on the Big Auction Site - Over Today

    Ending today - a good looking but untested example of the Bandido II μMAX... Take a look - no affiliation with seller. I was thinking of bidding myself, but I still have two of ‘em here and mine are thoroughly tested. I still think this is one of the best detectors Tesoro ever made. If this...
  3. They still work just fine..

    Out for the first time this year, today. Thought I’d do an area that I was in before, but further back into the canyon where there are more potential sledding slopes. Had the Tejon again - I’d found more rings with it last year than with my favorite Tesoros, but as Tejon users know, they’re...
  4. Back to that spot today - FIRST FRANKLIN HALF !

    Hey gang, I just got home after a couple hours out this morning. Had to go early ‘cause it’s been pretty warm lately, so I got there at 7. Went back to the same area where I found the buff nickel and a couple silver quarters a few days ago. Finding lots of the usual bullet shells, lead and...
  5. A couple hours with the Mojave today - my first “buff” nickel!

    Was out for a couple hours detecting with my daughter this evening, hitting what looked like it could have been a sled run many years back, and walked into a spot that may have been an old camp area. Thought I’d take the Mojave since I hadn’t used it at all this year. As usual, it worked very...
  6. Near the old ski lodge..

    Found my first Merc. dime for the season, a couple days ago with the Tejon; a nice looking ‘44S. Also found a broken key fob/token from the 1956 GM Motorama, along with a little modern coinage and a load of tabs and bottle caps I didn’t disc out. The dime was a good 10” down in decaying pine...
  7. Second diamond ring this week - wife found this one!

    Hey folks this is the second gold/diamond ring we found this week. I dug one detecting a couple days ago and while I was out detecting today, my wife found this: ...and she wasn’t even using a detector! She found it sticking up out of the dirt in the snow-play area I was detecting! It’s...
  8. WOW! You know what they say about blind squirrels..?

    I do get lucky once in a while.. Out with the Tejon today and to be honest, it’s not my favorite Tesoro. This is one of the newer black ones but I actually had a hotter gray one before. Sold the gray though, as it didn’t have a warranty in my name. I bought this black one new and sent in the...
  9. Bandido strikes again..

    While I’ve been lurking around now and then, I hadn’t actually done much detecting lately and decided today was a good day to get out to a place just up the road from me, the abandoned campground. I found my very first silver ring there shortly after getting my first Tesoro. It’s not nearly as...
  10. First day out in ages..

    Hey gang! I’d taken about a year off from swingin’ my Tesoros, but it was so nice up here, I thought some dectecting would be fun. Took along my favorite Bandido II μMAX and hit around a spot I hadn’t tried before. After about half dozen bullet heads and twice as many pulltabs, I found Donald...
  11. If anyone is looking..

    I just decided to sell my very nice "high-tone" Vaquero (with 2 coils) and a like new, Tejon. Listed in the classifieds. Just don't use 'em as often as I should, so they need a new home. Both work perfectly. Thanks. :sunny:
  12. ❎ SOLD FS - TESORO VAQUERO "HIGH-TONE" and LIKE NEW - TESORO TEJON

    Hey folks, I've decided to sell a couple of excellent condition Tesoros that I just don't use often enough to keep. Both are in PERFECT working shape. First one, a very strong Tesoro Vaquero "high-tone" model. It's in nice shape and was checked out last year by Rusty Henry who told me it works...
  13. 🙋 WANTED LOOKING FOR HOME AUDIO PRE-AMP -

    Hey folks! If any of you have surplus home audio equipment.. I'm in want of a good condition pre-amp from Audio Research or Conrad Johnson, preferably from mid 1980's - early 1990's. Other brands considered. Tube pre-amps mainly, solid-state considered if it's something interesting. Not really...
  14. Headphone ear pad replacement..?

    Hey gang, anyone here had to replace the ear pads on their Killer B's or Sun Ray headphones? How are they held in place?
  15. Ear pad replacement..?

    Hey folks, have any of you replaced your own ear pads on Killer B's or Sun Ray headphones? If so, how do they attach?
  16. Replacing ear pads / cushions on Killer B's & Sun Ray headphones ?

    Hey folks, just curious if any of you have replaced the leather ear pads on their Killer B's or Sun Ray headphones. Asking 'cause I bought some used KB's which will need new pads (torn). I ordered pads from John Smith who makes the headphones ($20+shipping) and he says they're easy to swap...
  17. Love these old Tesoros..

    It's pretty amazing that a 20 year old detector can work SO well! I've had plenty of expensive electronics only last a couple years before becoming junk, but these old Tesoros sure are built to last..! I hadn't been able to get out detecting for over 2 weeks now. Family from South Carolina is...
  18. How do you carry your ball handle Sampson?

    Hey folks, I just got one of the ball handle 31" Sampson shovels, and wondering if there's a convenient way to carry 'em around for the day. Thinking that the belt sheathes for Sampsons are most likely for the 18" mini, and not so much the longer handles.. Don't want it smacking my knee while...
  19. Wireless headphone gear - Deteknix (Quest) vs Garrett Z-Lynk ??

    Hey folks, for those who use either one or both, how do you like the one you have and have you compared the two? The Garrett looks nicer to me and apparently has a longer runtime between charges, but costs quite a bit more. Worth it?
  20. Newbie beach detecting question(s)..

    Hey folks, thought I'd start off by asking how to determine when and where my local beaches will not be "sanded in". Just went out with my new Tesoro Sand Shark yeasterday (with the full crowd there - was a family outing), and didn't find any "erosion" happening, and no great areas to search...
