I like Monte's fact/fiction response

August 24, 2020 08:27AM
You know, I've seen varied response from one machine i run. The MX Sport.

Running the same program, i don't hit bottle caps nearly as badly with the 7"DD as i do w/ the 6" concentric or the 10" DD. Why? Can't say i can tell you why. EPR typically indicates what Monte sees with this machine, but occasionally is fooled based upon target orientation and deterioration. It also picks up the deteriorated Zincoln's better than my other machines (not sure that is good).

Yesterday, i probably recovered 30+ old rusted caps (1910-20 era). Now, mind you, these were all reasonably shallow (3") and did not hit consistent VDI's in every direction, but in the area i was in, i had to dig them. As a basic principal, when i see shallower targets bounce around this widely on VDI, its junk...but? I did hit one target that was also ranging in the same VDI space, but was staying tight (2-3 VDI range), and i called dime or quarter. It was a quarter - the only one i dug.

Now, if I'm using my V3i, i can tell the vast majority of the time if its a cap by the multi-frequency response profile. 22.5kHz hits around a dime, 7.5kHz hits top of scale (dollar/plus), and 2.5kHz hits in high iron numbers. This can be fooled with caps that are deteriorated, but its a pretty solid indicator. Only thing I've ever seen come in w/ the same profile were deep nickels 5+"...and they will typically show a proper nickel number every now and then when circling the target on at least one frequency...whereas the caps won't.

Anywho....another data point.

just may have to change coils.

DD coils love rusty beer bottle caps, your Tesoro with a concentric coil would be better thumbs up N/T

It's not just the Simplex plus that has trouble.sad smiley
