    Last hunt of the trip...

    Still on vacation back home in PA; I got out for my last hunt of the trip Sunday, with my friend John. We had a good day, digging at an old site; the pictures are of my old coin finds, and some relics (flat buttons, lantern parts, etc. etc.) It was a really nice day (until an afternoon...

    A couple of oldies today...

    THIS is one reason why I love vacationing back home in PA so much... (A two-hour hunt at the former site of an old church from the mid 1800s...now long gone, and nothing but forest; I only dug two keepers the entire hunt, but I sure can't complain!)

    A few keepers from a recent hunt...

    Hi all! A couple of buddies and I had a nice hunt last Wednesday; each of us managed several older coins, from a grassy yard between an old hospital and an old church. Here are my best finds from the hunt... Steve

    Got a couple yesterday, including a dime trifecta...

    Hi all! I finally managed to get out for a few hours yesterday, and get some detecting in. Since I've basically been "home-bound," as many of us have (except for going to work), it was nice to be able to get out and enjoy some spring weather -- especially since it's easy to "socially distance"...

    Got out on Monday, and dug a few keepers...

    Hi all! It was a beautiful day here on Monday -- and my buddy and I got out for some digging. We hit a park that I had never hunted before, but he's been there several times over the years. As all of our city parks are, it's been well hunted, but after a couple of hours I lucked into a little...

    Carbon-fiber lower rods for Garrett's AT-series detectors now available!

    Hi all! I posted this over on the regular "Garrett" forum -- https://www.findmall.com/threads/carbon-fiber-shafts-for-garretts-at-and-ace-series-gti-and-gtax.346977/ -- but I thought I'd mention it here also. I'm now producing two-piece carbon-fiber lower shafts for Garrett's AT-series...

    Information regarding aptX-LL headphones, the Equinox, and pairing issues cropping up recently...

    Hello all! There has been quite a bit of chatter lately, regarding Miccus/Trond BT-80 headphones -- which have ALWAYS worked well with the Equinox -- but have recently been giving Equinox users problems, specifically with pairing. There has been some confusion as to whether or not the issue is...

    Last couple of hunts...a little silver, alot of wheat, and a gold ring return!

    Hi all! Here are the keepers from my last two hunts...well -- except for the gold ring, that is. That was a return, for a woman who lost it in her yard awhile back, breaking up a dog fight! All finds were with the Equinox 800. Thanks for looking! Steve [attachment 369061...

    Some finds from my recent trip back home to western PA

    Hi all! I managed to carve out some time to do some digging, while back home in PA the past week. I hit several sites, with a good hunting buddy, including an 1870s farmhouse, an early to mid 1800s foundation, an 1885 house/yard, and a cellar hole of unknown (19th century) age. All hunts were...

    First hunt this year...

    Aside from a quick hour or so at a local park last Friday, to make sure my gear was all in order, Saturday was the first real hunt for 2019. In fact, I've been so busy, that it was the first hunt in several months! It was great to get out, on a gorgeous day, and it was nice to make a few finds...

    Equinox complete carbon-fiber shaft prototype...

    Hi, all! Parts arrived today for one of the two prototype Equinox complete shafts I've been planning to build, and I just finished assembly. I am VERY pleased with the quality of the parts -- especially the clamping cam lock, which was a large portion of the focus for the design. I have done...

    Equinox lower rod project -- SUCCESS!

    Hi all; As some of you may know, I started a project about 8 months ago, where I set out to build a couple of carbon-fiber lower rods for my CTX 3030. I had a thread going here, marking my progress along the way, and I finally achieved a very nice, workable design. Well, I now own two Minelab...

    Air Test Comparisons -- 6" coil vs. 11" coil on U.S. coins...

    Hello all! Based on requests from several folks who are curious, I went ahead and did some air testing with my new Minelab 6” coil, attached to my Equinox 800. I wanted to give folks some idea of the relative capabilities of this coil as compared to the 11” coil. While all the normal caveats...

    The past couple of hunts...

    Hi all! I have been out doing some night hunting the past few nights, as this is the time I have available right now due to my shift schedule! The first picture (of the UGLY war nickel and the wheat) is from my local park that after too many years of hunting it WAY too much, it's become VERY...

    Today's in-the-field comparisons between the Equinox and CTX...

    A real-world hunting report, from earlier today, at a local public park. I was hunting with my CTX and 17" coil; sensitivity manual 25, ferrous discrimination only, 50 tones, Ferrous-coin separation, deep off, fast off. My buddy was hunting his Equinox, Park 1, 23 sensitivity, recovery 5, iron...

    Same yard, one more time, and the EQ sniffs out a few more!

    This morning, I went to that same 1904 house that I hunted several times with the CTX 3030, and then last week with the Equinox. I tried my darndest to find a gold ring, but it was not to be. HOWEVER, I DID manage to sniff out a few more coins that I had missed. It's getting hard, now...the...

    My best day yet with the Equinox...

    I had a good hunt today -- best one yet, with the Equinox. I acquired permission late last fall to hunt a home built in 1904 in town, and have been there several times, with the CTX. During those hunts, I dug a couple of Barber dimes, a Merc, a Rosie, a number of wheats, a few tokens -- plus a...

    ANOTHER BIG one? (LONG story attached!)

    This morning, my hunting partner Mike and I headed out for another hunt today. We were BOTH supposed to be swinging Equinox's, but when we arrived, I realized I did not have my Equinox headphones (and since then, it appears I may have lost them from the back of my truck at our prior hunt --...

    It's been quite awhile since I have dug one of these...

    It's funny, because a few weeks ago I was thinking about how last year, ALL of my silver coins were dimes! I'm not complaining; there was a Seated dime and a few Barbers in there for 2017, but still -- it had been a LONG time since I dug a silver coin larger than a dime. So, of course, my...

    First Equinox silver coin...

    Well, I made it out with the Equinox today, for the fifth short hunt since I got it. All five hunts have been to the same park -- it's a park I have hunted to death over the past 7 years with my Explorers, and I can rarely eek out even a wheat cent anymore. I have hunted it HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS...
