Correct! Now you know why, Professor. It sucks to be beat at your
own game, doesn't it?
Since you have no better grasp of the American English language than
anyone else here, will you stop being an asshole?
I have owned a White's since 1980. Found jars and jars of old coins, lots
of new ones that I spent, old jewelry, artifacts, and lots of "stuff". Used
them to find property survey markers, septic tank loops on the caps, lots of
My new thing is going to be looking for meteorites.
Metal detectors come in many flavors. It is good to talk to someone
knowledgeable before springing for that much cash (around $700 or more for a
good one), because they all work a little different. Some are MADE for use
at the beach and in the surf, that be the Pulse Induction variety. Others
are meant to be used for gold seeking to be able to discriminate out the
mineralized black sand. Others are meant to be general purpose. Some are
great for coins.
Salt water will wreak havoc with most detectors. Both by corrosion, and by
making the signal weird. You might want to analyze where you will be using
it, and buy one for that environment. Or have two, one for the salt water,
and one for the gold prospecting.
They are great, and the technology today is better than ever. Your main
concern is buying one that is aimed at the purpose you are going to use it
Thaks. I'm leaning towards White's. They do make one for use on the beach. I
believe I read that it was waterproof to 25', at $800 it should be.I gotta
take FMB's advice and see what the deal is legally. The do things by county
and as such differentt rules for the same activity. I'm about on the county
line so 've have to contend with what might be a bunch of stuff..
I just picked up my first detector a few weeks ago. I have plans to use it
many times this summer. I chose a White's MTX after reading group input and
reading an article in Gold Prospectors... Mar/Apr 2007. I went with the
chest mounted control box (straps, not screws) and find the detector portion
to be extremely light and well balanced. As I haven't as yet gone out to
search for anything, the only thing I have found was a lighter pocket.
Good luck, have fun, stay healthy.
Um, no, they don't. If you swing on by, I'll let you try mine out before
you decide. Also, do some research into the laws of your area pertaining to
"treasure hunting". Some places, if you are seen hunting the beach after a
big storm (good day to search), the ranger will watch from a distance till
he sees you pick something up and put it in your pocket. Something about
