Restoring German Helmets With Wax! (Diggers Tips, Photos+)

I recently acquired a very fine piece, an original German M42 Stahlhelm. Now this helmet was in a good condition with the original paint and everything, but I had one question: was there anything I could do to make it look better and add some value to it without destroying it in any way?

XP Deus Settings For Littered Places (Tips From Experienced Detectorists)

Unlike other metal detectors with preinstalled search programs and not very much freedom in changing settings, the XP Deus metal detector allows itself to be adjusted for use on any soil and any detecting conditions to the maximum.

Rod From The Golden Mask Used On The XP Deus (When Slavic Engineering Has Gone Too Far…)

Did the Slavic engineers make another big breakthrough in the metal detector design? In fact, yes! There is one detectorist and seller in Bulgaria who has been searching for meteorites with detectors for several decades. His store in Sofia is well known to many detectorists.

Interfering Signals Between The XP Deus and The Minelab Equinox (Important!)

If you dig with the Deus or the Equinox, you need to know this. This is important in case your friends/fellow detectorists dig in the same area as you, and with the same detectors. This advice is probably more suited to the owners of the Equinoxes from the first batch because in some ways the Equinoxes that came out after the first batch do not always create such interference signals...


Is It Possible To Boost The Depth Of The Garrett ACE 400i? (Diggers Tips, Finds+)

It would seem reasonable that an entry-level metal detector could be improved a little, right? Maybe improved in terms of depth, because the Garrett ACE series, although famous among detectorists, sometimes lack a little on the depth factor. There has been quite a lot of discussions about the possibilities of these metal detectors, but nothing is better than going out in practice and finding the answer to this question that no-one...
