Hey there Diggers! Today I want to discuss a metal detector I had the chance to test out. And while you might be a staunch advocate of the likes of Garrett and Minelab devices, I ask that you hear me out and consider an alternative. I’m talking about SAKOBS GC-1078 waterproof metal detector that boasts an 11-inch…
Any late summer vacation plans coming up? Are you planning on using your metal detector at Myrtle Beach? It can be an excellent spot to find hidden treasures, but you’ll need to know the local rules and restrictions.
The surest way to identify a cannonball is to determine its weight, diameter, material makeup, and location it was found. While unique markers would be helpful, these aren’t traditionally found on the majority of old cannonballs.
As someone who’s no stranger to physical labor and its toll on your body, I’m confident that a long-handled sand scoop is a metal detecting necessity! The strain in my back is a regular reminder to let my tools do the job they’re meant to do. So which sand scoop should you consider for your next hunt?
If you had asked me this question fifteen or twenty years ago, the answer would have been more complicated. But thanks to modern technology and the growing need for metal detector brands to become more adaptable, metal detectors are no longer made for a single population group.
To keep it simple, yes, stainless steel will set off a metal detector, but not always due to the threshold of the metal detector. Not so convincing? I get it. You need a more in-depth look at this mysterious alloy. So let’s go!
Copper won’t rust since it’s not a subgroup of the ferrous metal iron, which all rusting metals possess. However, copper does experience another form of corrosion that could be confused with rusting. If you want the details about its effect, how fast it takes, and safety concerns, here you go.
Rust? Rust!! Aluminum doesn’t rust, does it? Well, maybe not. But there are plenty of recognized corrosion forms out there; unfortunately, aluminum isn’t escaping all of them. So come along and find out what dangers are out there for our shiny friend.
I’ve talked about rusting metal a lot recently. As a metal detectorist, finding little treasures with signs of corrosion is par for the course. And while galvanized steel isn’t necessarily a sought-after find, it’s worth discussing how this metal reacts in its environment. So let’s get into! To rust or not to rust…
