    Today's Finds 30-12-18

    Found more coin's to spend and some more badge's as well. Also got another old penny 1903.
  6. No problems we look forward to seeing your finds on treasurehunters.nz
  7. Thank you so much for your help and advice, we appreciate it.
  8. I have heard good things about the go find 44 but I have not tried it myself. You can get a second hand X-Terra 705 for as little as $600-700 these days just look around. When i first got mine I paid around $1000 for it.
  9. Thanks for your reply, what sort of price do you have on the X-Terra 705? Any thoughts on the Minelab Go Find 44? This has also been suggested to us.
  10. I have a X-Terra 705 its a really good machine and well priced these days this would be a good machine for a starter / intermediate person. You can get some really cheap ones like the ace 400 machines but they do not have ground balance and not really that good and more of a kiddy machine don't get me wrong they do work but spend a little more and get a good machine you can't go wrong with the X-Trerra 705 check out my photo gallery all found with that machine

    Just a short hunt today to hot.
  12. Hi, We have a 12 year old that we have always referred to as 'Eagle Eyes' as he has always found 'treasures' without the aid of anything except his eyesight ;-) He has developed a keen interest in owning a metal detector and taking it to the next level of searching and discovering. Toby is not afraid to research, read and practice for HOURS on end and we want to support him with this but we need help and advice on detectors for a beginner/intermediate level. Any suggestions and ideas would be welcomed....Thanks in advance.
  13. Sweet got the new case and stand today. I had to hot glue around the edge because it was just to fat to fit in the case.
  14.   Cheap DIY with handle.
