Where to dig? (The eternal question)

While the yard is full of snow and it is still winter, I will suggest you to find new places to dig. Constantly I hear this question from my fellow diggers, so I think it necessary to tell you my views on this matter. Where to begin? Let’s look at everything in order. To understand where to go detecting, you need to have the necessary knowledge of local history and...

Why do I need to ground balance my detector? (Diggers Tips +)

When I had just started to detect, I did not understand anything when the more experienced diggers said strange words: “discrimination”, “Ground Balance”, “mineralization”. Especially, when I bought my first metal detector, I did not even know that it was necessary to do some ground balancing. Why do I need to ground balance my metal detector? And did you know that if you do not adjust the ground balance properly,...

Fisher in the mud (Raincovers for the Fisher?)

For me, the covers for Fisher (my Fisher F75) was particularly necessary, because I often dig in any weather, and my kit did not include this accessory. I got my cases through a friend of one craftsman who makes such things at home, and takes not as much as stores from the internet. Maybe it is pleasant to dig when it is hot on a dry lawn, but this happens...

Tips and settings for Minelab E-Trac (+ Video)

To this day i haven’t written so much about the Minelab E-Trac here. We have kind-of undeservedly passed by this detector, which is not good. We hope to fix that very soon.? The internet contains a lot of unnecessary information, and therefore it sometimes is very difficult to find something useful for a  E-Trac user, especially for those just starting out. I will try, in the new season 2017, to change this...

Why do you need a pinpointer? (Experienced diggers tips)

I remember when I was just starting metal detecting, I did not consider a pinpointer for a necessary gadget to have. I had a metal detector with the standard mono coil, and therefore i did not dig any deep holes. Therefore i often found the target pretty quickly. “And why do we need this pinpointer?” – I thought then. I kept on thinking so until a friend of mine gave me...

First experience with electrolysis (cleaning silver)

At first I was skeptical to electrolysis. I consider this as a”barbaric” method of cleaning. However, I decided to try it. As a test subject i chose the 15 kopeks silver coin 15 from 1926, with a silver purity of 500. The condition of this coin was no good- it was more dead than alive. There was black tarnish on it, which had previously tried to remove with a little citric acid. There was also...

Engraving on bayonets of the Wehrmacht / SS (don’t get fooled! + Photos)

Periodically i come across various people who try to innocently ask in social networks and forums whether this is a real engraving on the bayonet and how much it is worth? It is clear that we are dealing with a scammer who tries to possibly find a buyer, because a lot of diggers and collectors wants to take home a little souvenir or an object that would have had to do with the different...
