was 33f ground froze , ground balanced at 85 and on my 6" deep dime with about 1/2" ice over it and some room to swing about 3/4" + 6 = 6.3/4 inch in two tone got a two way with gain at 75 and in three tone gain at 85 and 90 got a good signal. not badd for this ground and a small coil . I went over some buried nails and got some falsing, but it was not consistent need some more time to tell when its just a nail or a coin next to a nail . had no Issues with the cold and having it overload at all

It's weird huh? The OOR gets almost the same depth as the stock coil. I have an iron carpeted park that we gave up on a long time ago, I have very high hopes and confidence in the spring with the Racer and OOR.

Start out with your power on about 50 it doesn't effect the depth in two tone you will hear deep targets have a soft tone..let me know how you do..

Can't wait for warmer weather so you can get out on that farm of yours. Take it up to the area where you found your seated dime and give that machine / OOR coil a good run.



Fear is paralyzing and courage is liberating. No matter what is put in front of you, there is always a way to make it work.

Dreams are just dreams, goals are dreams with deadlines. The desire to succeed comes from within. Stay focused on your goals, and if people say that you can’t do something, get them out of your life and move on.

Jim - will do - this Racer is probably the best separating machine i have used . very handy to switch between modes and set things up the way you want each of the three modes to work very handy machine, I got a trail out to the old 30 homestead site - I bet it does good , that i would like to do some videos of the digging seeing i have never hit this site. maybe some tokens as it was the great depression and they may have used lots of them

Yes. The original 5" coil was actually about 5.2" by 4.7", so it is slightly "out of round" (OOR, as named
by Monte). The newer 5" coil is actually round, and about the same size and performance, according to all
reports I've seen.



In So. Calif. using Nokta Impact, Makro Racer, Tesoro Vaquero, and Tesoro Sand Shark.

Ksdirt, there are two smaller coils for the Racer and Racer 2.

The first one introduced with the original Racer in February of 2015 they showed with a measurement of 4.7X5.2. That makes this smaller DD coil just slightly 'Out-Of-Round' and I called it an 'OOR' coil for that reason. I started using the term 'OOR' back in 2001, if I recall, when Tesoro brought out their so called 8X9 spoked Concentric coil. Just a smidgeon out-of-round compared with their round 8" coils.

The smaller coil for the Nokta FORS CoRe and FORS Gold is also made using this slightly 'OOR' shaped housing as well.

The Nokta FORS Gold + and Makro Gold Racer, introduced in latter 2015, have a round-shaped 5½" diameter coil. Nokta and Makro call it a 5" round coil but the outside measurement is closer to 5½" so that's what I call it. Then at the start of 2016 Makro introduced the Racer 2 then the Nokta FORS Relic that both can use their own small 5½" round DD coil.

Since the original Racer and the Racer 2 share the same 14 kHz operating frequency as well as search coils, either of these models can use the 'OOR' or 5½" round DD coils. They are very close in field performance but the appearance can make some folks wonder. I use both coil sizes and in-the-field performance is virtually identical.

Well, Monte, I answered the question a couple of minutes before you did.
However, as any forum follower would expect, your answer is much more complete.

You posted while I proof-read my reply and didn't see yours until after mine was up. At least it shows that at least two of us are up late monitoring the Makro Forum activity. :beers:

That's all right. Low-Boy answered before either of us, and HIS answer is by
far the most succinct!
