If your using a U/W machine take a visit to a dive shop and get some of that hose protector stuff and put it on your coil cable because you only have to accidently hit that cable with your scoop and hmmm do i have to draw pictures.  I had the same stuff around my headphone cable.  Protection is better than the cure stay safe its cheaper in the long run.  Grin

Learn your machine and slow down, also clean the hole of all targets before filling, rescanning and moving on.

here is the best tip I have ever recieved. Always hunt the small grass strip between the street and the side walk in any neighborhood. That is where your hand comes out of the pocket for the car keys. very small area, easy to cover all the area and I always find lots of coins. Most folks over look this spot but it is at times just great.

 Clapp Hey you are welcome, there is always new tips poping up all the time, some you will come up with your self. Here is another one for ya. In my book a site is never completely worked out. The ground takes stuff down deep and then will bring it back up to a detecting level again. The ground moves arround a lot thru the seasons and will position items in the ground much more easiely to get a good signal. personaly I think when the ground is wet the signal will come out easier also, in hard dry soil, signals can be tougher to get when trying to go deep. A coin turned on edge might not give you a good signal or no signal at all, come back to the same spot after winter and the coin or item will have changed position to let you get a good hit. Don't be in a big hurry take it nice and slow.

What a crummy responce potty mouth. Keep your rotten tips to your self.

 Grin  now that is funny, but so true.  Although at times I can't tell if it is my machine beeping  or a bird chirping- ha ha--- as my hearing is not so good, I to am as old as most things I find,  (Well almost)

Hi Guys,

How do you avoid digging out mines or dead bombs? If someone goes for iron as well, how can you tell, that something is dangerous? Is there a way to prevent a mishappening like this?
