Learning the Equinox 800’s Audio by Running Gold 2

At any given time I have about a dozen machines on hand. Each has it’s strengths. I see the EQ’s strength as being a very good consistency checker. When you get some practice running in G2–just how good it is in this way becomes apparent. Running up at the high fq’s–the machine processes out iron […]

Equinox False Signal Checkers

Did a hunt at an iron-laden Victorian site today and tried Neil Jones’s high power (Sens “25”) “Winkler” program. It’s a great smooth 50 tone set up that really cuts down on the iron responses in these types of conditons. Ive been looking for something to run at this place for years and although IH […]

Book Excerpt: “Tech” From: “The Minelab Equinox An Advanced Guide”

1/ “Tech” I recently gave a talk on the Equinox to a group of mostly amateur hunters–prospective buyers.  Minelab’s National Sales Rep was in the audience.  Amongst the first things I said was that (having read some of the online “Treasure Talk” tech rundowns on this machine), that it was “…the first detector that I’ve […]

Some Minelab Equinox Gold-Hunting Tips

  The first thing I would point to is coil control.  With this detector–coil control is the activator of all the other target info coming in.  When you learn to use the Equinox coil to perform tests (sweep direction, length, speed) the results will be there in the audio and on the meter.  Try some […]

A Few Shoreline Tips

I’v e been looking around for some really solid advice to put into a post and what seems to come to mind is to recognize that a detector does not “punch down” through the ground to detect metal.  What it does is to separate ground and interference from metal.  When you do a lot of […]

Keeping Your CTX 3030 in Top Shape

Couple of things I’ve learned the hard way: 1/ Any rotating of the coil on it’s bracket causes the hardware to wear. This might not be evident but it is happening. Once the pigtail wears and breaks –the coil cable is not far behind. If you see this happening try and epoxy it solid to […]

…A satisfied customer…

I have purchased virtually every book that Clive has written. All have paid for themselves many times over. These are not rewritten user manuals, these are well written books that teach you what questions to ask, and teaches you how to answer them. A good critique of a machine thru the eyes of an experienced […]

Minelab Equinox–Simplified: Beginner Skill Building

Minelab Equiniox–Simplified …a few points that I found to be central to skill building with the Minelab Equinox. 1/ Stay away from 50 tones to begin with—especially with Sens over “20”–too many sounds.  Later on, 50 Tones can help you to learn how to listen for consistent sounds but to begin with this is easiest […]
