  1. You know another name for Nugget Hunter? I mean besides Rob Allison. I mean what do you call guys and gals that like to spend all their time investigating those darn elusive nuggets and trying to sneak up on them? Dem dere people be called "Nugget Stalkers®" So for that Nugget Stalker in your life here's a perfect Christmas present. The Nugget Stalker® Hat. Now when someone comes up to you and asks "Wat ya'll doing with that swingy stick son?" You can just point at your hat. Nugget Stalker® and the little stick figure of the Detecting Man are Federally Registered Trademarks
  2. It's a made up name which is a mash up of the words Quick, Bungee and Double (double adjustment point). It describes another innovative product from Doc that makes detecting more enjoyable and helps save your arm, shoulder neck and back from undue stress. Just add your own backpack or Hydration pack. This amazing Bungee Support System provides absolutely instantaneous adjustment so your detector is always at the proper height off the ground, even when you are in mid-swing. We use super strong Marine Grade bungee that is stronger than 3/8ths inch bungee that is commonly used for tie-dow
  3. Me! I'm the automated assembly line. Only 1700 more to assemble. I can't keep up with orders. Your dealers should have more this week if you have been waiting. I have not seen any field reports from people who have purchased the Swing Assist Guide Arm. I would love to hear some news. Thanks gang! Doc
  4. I did a little experiment to see how effective the Gold SPOT™ Treasure Scoop Portable Gold Pan is for dry panning. This scoop was developed not only to be a more effective nugget recovery tool when using your metal detector but also as an effective tool when crevassing and sampling. This is useful when you are looking for deposits of small nuggets and flakes of gold in cracks in bedrock. So for this experiment, I mixed 1 gram of 14 mesh gold, that would be about 30 or so tiny nuggets and a half of a gram of 18 mesh gold which would be around 40- 45 little flakes total 1.5 grams with dirt and b
  5. Well tell the CDC that KN95 and N95 masks are bullshit. KN95 are N95 are recommended by the CDC, and they even say you can use them for extended use as long as they are usable and you have not soiled the outside with blood or sputum. The key is not to touch the outside of the mask and transfer cooties to the inside. These masks meet FDA specs. Cloth masks do not. These masks are approved for medical use. Cloth masks are not. The CDC also recommends, which is what my sons, who are dentists also recommend, is to use your cloth mask or a cheap mask over the KN95 mask to keep the outs
  6. Hey gang, I bought 500 KN95 masks made to FDA specifications. Actually my two sons, who are dentists took some of them, that's why we were able to get the good medical grade ones. These are sterile and each masks is individually packaged so they stay clean until you need them. Not looking to make money off of them I will sell them for what they cost me. 10 for $20 plus $4 shipping. I didn't need 500 masks but that was the minimum we could buy. What a joke! A mask that cost us $1.60 with shipping Custom's whacked me 40 cents per mask in import duty. Even the government is out
  7. Just because of you Grubstake I bought a wireless remote microphone. So no matter how far I am away from the camera my voice should be loud and clear. I am going to have to re-do this video, as soon as it's not 213 degrees out. Doc
  8. Rob did you mean a tad THICKER? Rather than thinner? My G-Spot scoop weighs more than the typical scoop. Doc
  9. Rob mistyped the url, here is the proper one. Doc
  10. This is a demonstration of the Gold SPOT™ being used as a portable gold pan. It's extremely effective. Don't worry about the first few minutes where I am out of frame. Leo Aranza, my buddy, takes over and the rest of the video is well framed. -Doc
  11. Some posters on other forums rightly questioned whether the Gold SPOT™ Treasure Scoop was really any better than a regular treasure scoop. Well I already knew the answer to that question. You see for a year I have been working on the Gold SPOT™ design. I played with it I re-designed it, I proto-typed it 5 times. I wanted a design that would speed up nugget recovery and make it easier to keep the nugget in the scoop and not lose it. Remember, I'm the guy who had a catastrophic failure with the SAGA swing arm, and within days of release I recalled them all from the field. They just di
  12. I know the volume was low. I may have to re-record it with some kind of a microphone. I just video'd it on my phone. Doc
  13. Turn your hearing aids up. I had mine turned up, I think that was the problem when I was recording it it sounded like I was screaming to me. 😀
  14. If you think the SAGA™ is just a Swing Arm, it's not. It's a steering wheel for your detector. Start at the 3-minute mark on the video, and watch what the unique design of the SAGA can make your detector do. If you know of any device on the market that gives you this kind of control please let me know, because I know of nothing that even comes close. If what you see intrigues you then watch the entire video. You're going to find that the SAGA will make detecting much easier and less stressful on your body and give you control over your detector you have never had before. Call Rob, he
  15. I'm not going to bore you with the details of the first attempt. Valuable exercise because the New SAGA™ really is exceptional, if I don't say so myself. If you currently use a Swing Arm, you will throw it away when you use this one. • No more breakage at the pivot point where Swing Arms attach to the detector. The SAGA™ is designed with a pivot point that allows for the typical movement that allows you to swing the arm out and away from the detector, but it also is designed with a rotating Pivot Joint that allows for up and down movement of the arm. This eliminates breakage, but it also
  16. The new Gold SPOT™ Treasure Scoop portable gold pan. This unique tool is designed to increase your recovery speed of detected nuggets. The recessed bowl of the scoop channels heavy gold into the bottom of the scoop (the Gold SPOT) when you give the scoop a little shake and agitation. When you start dumping dirt into your hand to isolate the nugget, the trough of the recessed bowl channels any gold up towards the riffles. The riffles hold the nugget as the lighter material spills over the tops of the riffles into your hand. Ever cleaned out a crack in bedrock and the material in your s
  17. This is 5000 new "Gold SPOT™' Scoops and 2000 SAGA™ Swing arms... Fimally! Contact Rob, he will have the scoops probably by Monday, and Swing Arms, shortly there after, I'm still waiting on some nylon nuts and bolts. Doc
  18. We are in production now. Take a look. Rob has 2 of the first production models Version 2 Doc
  19. Gang the first production prototypes of the SAGA V2 Swing Assist Guide Arms are here. See what improvements have been made. Comments welcome. Thank you to the people that gave me feedback on the first version which as we all know was a crash and burn. -Doc
  20. So here's the latest SAGA news. As someone mentioned, maybe SAGA was not a good name as the development of this product has become something of a SAGA. The initial test run of 50, we took some and put them into the field. MONUMENTAL FAIL. These things were falling apart faster than you could swing your detector. To say they were under-engineered was putting it lightly. I had the basic concept of how this should be designed, but ultimately I depend on my fabricators to use the right material and finally design the product to withstand the rigors of metal detecting. Literally the only thing that
  21. We have our second winner! Wy2Cool, email me you shipping address at and I will get it off to you today. Thanks for playing! Doc
  22. And Mike is a winner! I will get that headed your way Mike. Please report back on the forum how you like it, and the build quality, and the comfort level. Doc
  23. Yes but these walkie talkies have the ability to transmit at legal wattage. However, if I fell and broke a leg, or got snake bit, and it was a life threatening situation and I could not reach anyone, I'm sorry but I would bump the wattage up in an attempt to get help. I would have to suffer the consequences of using the illegal wattage, as I think life and limb are more important. I did not mean to imply that people should use the device illegally, only that it had that capability in an emergency situation. Doc
  24. There has never been a decent padded cuff cover for the SD/GP/GPX machines in my opinion. So I decided to fix that. There must be a gazillion SD/GP and GPX machines out there. Here's the best cuff cover in the world, Model #SPX. Lightly padded through out, nice wide comfortable strap. We are now using high quality 3M product for all of our hook and loop (Velcro® like) applications. The strap even has a fuzzy side mounted under the strap to protect you from chaffing from the webbing, provide cushioning and keep your arm cooler because it provides ventilation. The arm cuff on the SD/G
