Thanks for your great chart, I put in in the manual at page 31.

A couple of questions:

-
Did the pull tabs not read at all? how about a screw top and foil?

-Did you mean 2 Euro coin? The Manual shows 16 for them (which seems low to me based on my experience, and you 21 sounds closer)

-I am concerned about the low readings for the small gold ring and platinum. Do you have a 90% platinum wedding band to test?

Appreciate the info, its great for all of us waiting!!!!

i simply ran out of time but working to add more stuff when i can I did get out a bit more last night and found pulltabs to hit around 14-16 give or take depending on style, also yes i meant the euro 20 cent coin and lastly I dont have a platinum ring on me at all to test sorry the 14k ring hit in the right range 12 simialr to nickel the only one that struggled was the broken unknown karat I have seen broken rings give poor readings on other machines as well so it could be just that affecting it, I wouldnt take to much of this as set in stone, Simply ran them out of my curiosity and wanted to share results to give a baseline at least

Bigelow,

Thanks! Looks like the Manual readings are spot on, I also noticed from the park hunt video that it seems to stay on target ID and not bounce around.

When I get mine, I'll test it with the full range of Euro, German (pre-Euro) and UK coins to see the readings.

I am pretty sure it isn't bouncy because they group more things all together.
Reason some detectors are 0-99.

Updating the list with some new items and will continue to do so , as for the bouncing numbers you may have a point but I myself made the calls to put multi numbers on the chart in some cases, they may lock in on one number but I was doing quick baseline readings eventually will fine tune to separate the numbers better. Owning too many machines for my own good I have an overload of TID numbers in my head and just wanted to see where it fell compared to the other machines. Again these are just quick preliminary results for Park1 setting, results may vary slightly.

Hopefully you can read them and see them but these are all of the targets I used for the numbers

Steve's post is on his own site. We are not allowed to do links here, on this site. You will have to do an internet search for Steve Herschbach's forum; he has a sub-forum just for the Equinox, and it's in there...
