Does your ground have high mineralization? I went with the F2 and only get about 4" on a dime here in Oregon, US. We have heavily mineralized ground. I was wondering if the BH 505 would work better. My father also bought a Fisher F2, but he lives in Virginia, US so the F2 finds stuff deeper for him. The ground is very mild there.
Yes it does. I'm at the top of a mountain and it is said to contain a lot of minerals. Here are my garden depths that I set.
1.Clad Quarter (1987), 8? deep
2.Silver Quarter (1980), 6? deep
3.Clad Quarter (1997), 6? deep
4.Copper Clad PCB, 1 1/2?x1 1/4?, ?
5.Nickel, (1986), 3? deep
6.Nickel (2004), 6? deep
7. SS Dog Tag, 6? deep
8.Aluminum pull-tab, 4? deep
9.Penny (1967), 3? deep
10.Beer Bottle cap, 4? deep
That is the current depth that I set them at. I still have more to 'Plant', and I will go deeper on the next 10. Linkback:
