i Have the Great Great Uncle to that ‘Old Tech’ machine of yours

I had to open up the cave to look for it. It is so old that i had to clean off the volcanic ash instead of dust.

It was before batteries when we hooked up electric eels for power. winking smiley I think the Golden Sabre is 1986 if I recall right. Maybe 1987.

Here’s a pic.

There are older detectors out there but I’m pretty sure you’d have to find them frozen in a glacier somewhere in a wooden tote on Monte’s mammoth. grinning smiley
