    Someone has got to have something to sell, lets get this forum rolling.

    ^^ The cheap gold- now that is funny. My favorite jewel smith is another Jared not affilliated with the one on TV. He custom made my wife and I wedding rings.

    My most exciting time is finding a gold ring with my metal detecto. Makes a nice change from finding -well - change. As it is I find an average of $500 a year in pocket money. That's not counting jewley or silver coins. I typically pay for my detectors in 2 years.

    I do have a spare detector, not quite as state-of-the-art as the one I now use but I don't think I want to sell it. It's still a great machine & makes a good back-up. I have given thought to maybe selling it sometime. I'd want to do that in person so I could give lessons & tips on how to use it while actually in the field.

    You know you're serious about treasure when you make sure you have a backup metal detector.

    I watched an episode last night of Forensic Files and was suprised that a metal detector could detect lead. Local LE Agency up north asked a local Metal Detector Club for assistance with finding a bullet that killed a 70+ YO War Vet after someone broke into his house and killed him.

    He heard a window break grabbed his olf .45 war weapon with SN scratched out and proceeded down the stairs. The theif shot him and killed him. Did I already say he was a highly decorated war vet, a gunner on one of the war planes with the .50 in the front. The bad thing was he didnt even have a round in the chamber and the thief seen him first.

    You bet I'm serious. There's a big cache of gold coins waithing for me out there somewhere. All I've got to do is pass my searchcoil over it.

    My spare detector is usually used by friends who don't have one of their own.

    So far today I've got about $9, 2 silver rings, & 2 old wheat pennies - a 1925 & a 1931. No gold. I'm probably finished for the day. After my heart attack I just don't have the stamina anymore especially since the temp is supposed to get up to around 87 with high humidity. This is after a cold couple of weeks. Gotta acclimate. I'll get my stamina back soon. I'm actually pretty healthy now, just out of shape. Probably take the Husky for a long walk this PM at the nearby State Forest.

    Gonna be 93 here today at 60%+ humidity. Male or female husky? My wife and I have a Husky\GSD bitch and two of her pups (six months old now, she hooked up with a yellow lab).

    I must have been posting when you submitted yours, Dibble. Sorry I missed it.

    I'm on the call list of people who are proficient with the use of metal detectors for a few of the suburban PDs around Milwaukee. The city & county itself has their own & officers trained to use them so there's no need right here.

    Members of our club responded to a call to our Correctional Facility a few years ago (I was still on active duty or working full time) to find some keys that a maintenance man had lost. They were found in a snowpile. He evidently lost them while he was clearing snow. If they weren't found EVERY lock at the facility would have had to be changed. No telling what THAT would have cost the taxpayer.

    Lead is picked up real good by a 'tector. The trick is not to have discriminated that area of conductivity where lead would be detected. Gold hunters use lead to tune their machines for the most sensitivity in that range of metals. A person whom has their detector adjusted to ignore lead won't find much gold especially nuggets. Gold jewelry can be found almost anywhere in the metal spectrum depending on what the gold was alloyed with. A 10K ring is easier to detect than a 24K ring & all in between are variable. It's the electrical conductivity of metal that determines the ability to detect it.
