2013 Hunt#36 Silver, digging down to China and a coil Bolt
Treasureseeker and i met up at Devonport beach for early hunt,
There were 2 objectives for us:
* i tried to search for a lost gold ring that was lost for the ...3D! time...3 weeks ago..
Unfortunately beach has an enormous sand movement activity daily and even that i had exact spot where it was dropped , my effort was fruitless. there were so many tiny rubbish pieces that i couldn't go into pin point mode to hear deeper targets...
* second objective was to try PIN Point mode for deeper targets in one particular area, we both gave up idea immediately as we couldn't even do one swing - too many pieces of aluminum around.
The silver Ring was 5 scoops down and i almost thought that it would be aluminum blob or something..
Anyway, no gold today, but 6$ that covered my trip back home and an Ugly silver band
Another important thing for Exaclibur Users,
Our coil bolt is thiner than other detectors :-/, so could not use Toilet bolt as future replacement and failed all hardware bathroom stores, Mitre10 and bunnigs, none of them had what was required.
screw-thread OD 6 Mil
with Wind nut
Finally i found an Auckland firm - Hi-Q components that has exactly all shapes and sizes,
however they were not selling individual items, but in packs of 25 :-)
Although, not expensive, the total price, shipped via courier was 21$ :-)
So, Brett, Treasureseeker and anyone else who would like a spare coil bolt- let me know ;-)
