Just dig everything, that's where gold likes to hide. Every gold item I have dug I never expected it to be gold !

Here is a screen shot of the meter on a Teknetics 9000/B on many of the older models they showed the gold coin range as well as copper and silver.

CoinStrike likes round things. If there isn't too much iron, turn averaging on and dig anything that sticks to stable numbers. If there is a lot of iron, turn averaging off, and still look for those repeatables.

Forget a number range....if it sticks to stable numbers, its round.

Good luck,
HH

Hey Guys thanks for the C$ info ...has been to hot/humity here in Alabama to hit the old store site..was wondering if there was a known sweet spot for the C$ while hunting in iron sites.. for example on the t2 the sweet spot for iron is around 21 or 22 I think.....any info is appreciated....joe

The only aftermarket that I know of was the Sun-Ray CS-5. Now if your looking to just replace a bad coil then finding one new may be a problem, I do see used ones on ebay from time to time, with a little modification at the coil connector you can use a coil from an ID-Edge too.

Mark,
I believe you may have gotten that backwards. I'm pretty sure the ID-Edge coils work fine on a C$ without modification. It's the C$ coils that need the ground lifted to work on the ID Edge.
(Or, you can get the SunRay pinpointer, and it has a switch that lets you use either coil with either machine.)

There is a small ground jumper connected from one pin to the ground of the strain relief arm on the connector of the CS (used) the ID-Edge doesn't have the jumper (not used).
To match the wiring correctly for switching the coils you would need to.

Remove the ground jumper to use the CS coils on the ID-Edge,

Add the jumper to the ID-Edge coils to use them on the CS.

I've heard of some users switching the coils around to one model without doing anything to the jumper with some success, but the correct circuit is the CS uses the jumper, the Edge does not!

What your looking at in the pictures below is the coil connector that I had to replace due to poor workmanship at Sun-Ray! the connector was removed (cable cut) from a CS-5 coil (Coin$rtike coil) a couple of things to note!
(1) the strain relief tabs were not crimped at ALL around the cable!
(2) the ground jumper is soldered pretty good to the strain relief arm, but it was no more than laying on the solder on the connecting pin (sometimes it touched and sometimes it didn't) if this connection isn't right the CS will power up for a couple of seconds, then power back off. That CS-5 coil giave me fits before I found out what was going on.

The CS-5 coils came with a adapter cable so that the coil could be used on the ID-Edge, all they did with the adapter was to omit the ground jumper at the connector.

These pictures do show the correct location for the jumper, for homemade jumpers I used the tiny solid copper wire used in home installed phone wires, its perfect!

Mark,
I see what you're saying...

I'm actually one of 'those' guys. :)
I've got 2 C$ and one ID Edge, and I've got all the coils setup to Edge specs so that they can be used on any of the machines.

After much bench and field testing with and without the jumpers, I can see no depth, emi, or stability difference using Edge coils on the C$.
(I did, however, end up with several coils made from the infamous bad batch of cable...they shredded the insulation like confetti. Thus the impetus to 'mix-n-match' coils.)

:)

Yea, the CS has a coil circuit test that it performs at bootup and It's my understanding that the Edge doesn't perform that test. (The manual also states the coil circuit test)

At one point I also had 2 CS and the Bill Ladd Proto type ID-Edge.
After losing my job (they shut down the warehouse) money got tight (still is) so I cut back on my detectors and one by one the CS's went, then the Edge made its way back to Bill, so now I'm pretty lean on detectors.
