Yesterdays finds for those who are visually oriented.

I'm pretty sure the "stone" is CZ as the setting is cheap and where it was found is not the ritziest part of the world.

! Otherwise I would be able to retire!

Wedding band is 14K initialed and dateed '97, other ring--not marked, but has chip diamond.

The small ring has initials and the date 1900 inside it. I can't make out the number, but from the tarnish I would suspect 10K and the gem stone is gone.

The rest are silver bits and pieces.

Thought I would have to crawl back to the van, but otherwise it was a great day!!

This AM I'm feelin it too!

"til next time,

CJ

PS The diamond? is between the penny and the wedding band!

Thanks fellow hunters!!

Yesterday was totally opposite from the day before.

I spent a couple of hours waist deep in salt water to give my recently acquired used, but appearently not abused, Excalibur a spin.

After a half hour or so it started acting up after it had been so stable it was a delight to operate!

I found about a tablespoon of water in the control module!

I put it away and finished the day with my Infinium which was having issues too.

Two zinc cents and one nickel were the totl finds along with over a dozen bottle caps!

I'm hoping the Excal isn't trashed and after drying it out will check it out.

I hope I haven't thrown my money away!

"Schtuff" happens!!!

Nice! They don't have to be all good ones to make it a good day....

I have had two 11 ring dives, none gold which was odd but the days were much fun. I think I have gotten 5 or 6 gold rings on my best dive but I really forget now. I used to sell the wedding bands to a lady at work for 40 bucks each. We both were happy with it.

I really hunt for that sweet sound the detector gives with a keeper. I love it

You and me Pal!!

When I hear that sound it reminds me of Dear Old Uncle Drew.

When we drove past an oil field in the Luling area of Texas he used to breath deeply of the foul air caused by the natural gas vented from the wells and with a smile on his face would comment about it being the sweet smell of money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

may be toe rings, as they appear adjustable! :)

I believe they are toe rings!

Those things are a lot easier to find than gold rings these days.

Usually siver or silver plated brass at the beaches where I hunt!

Nice to hear from you kiddo!

I wash mind everytime I go to the salt water and if possible stop off a lake or river on the way home to flush it out even better. I've never had a leak problme with mine but did have a small condensation problem once in the battery pack. I carry a spair so just went to it and dried it out later. Never happened again..

Once you learn the sounds of it, they do a pretty nice job. I prefer to hunt in pin point node silent...and dig it all....

Hi George,

After dissassembling the unit I pressure-tested everything and discovered that the leak was from where the knob shaft for the descrim. passes through the housing wall.

The "boss" is glued in and the glue joint was leaking!

I cleaned everything carefully and applied some good old Duro glue to the area where it was leaking inside and out.

No more leak!!

I got lucky with the electronics too.

A very careful inspecrion revealed only one corroded wire at the bottom of the circuit board and I cleaned and sealed the connection.

The cylinder that is the battery housing has cracks too, but a spare that doesn't leak came with the machine, so it's good to go!!

Everything has been working fine since and I have had it under two feet of water off and on for almost three hours.!!

I'll moniter it carefully, but every one of these machines needs that!

Best to Ya Friend,

CJ

I once rode an English three speed bicycle to work when I lived in Arizona and worked at Luke Field. I had visions of riding to work each day and reaping the rewards of better health and saving the cost of fuel and the expense of owning and maintaining a car. Going to work was fine, but the return trip almost killed me. After a day in the Arizona sun, I began the ride home traveling into a brisk wind and had to struggle to make headway. It didn
