After working at getting advice for a while now, one person said they had a metal detector that they bought that didn't work. The took it apart and cleaned it completely. They said they cleaned eveything even things that looked clean. I fond some grit in the Eagle ll but the boards for the most part looked clean. The connection on the inside of the main box looked to be corroded where it goes out and the coil cable connects. i cleaned it. I noted something on one of the chips and cleaned it too. Still things from the display startup scrolls. i got to get around and take it away from my house and try it before I do much more with it. Tough thing is I been out detecting with the M6 finally got my 3rd silver from curb strips a 1964 Wasington down 2 inches. i have a friend that runs a Garret and out did me in quarter finds at the school I had been doing. I think only because I was trying the search of iffy targets to try to find silver. Another with the same detector out did me as wel lbut I was still digging the iffy targets. My usually way of shotting along and only going for the solid hits Netted me much better I done better than they did on the two days each was hunting with me .I am very suprised I don't find more silver in the curb strips around town. But there is a White's dealer in town and I think a lot of people have been at it over the years. Talking to the old guy here I learned he never has gone detecting. But people come to him for detectors because there are no other dealers near here . He informed me the one in Lansing nolonger exist. I got through the same guy that sold me my Eagle with the update chip back in 1988 I think. Its late late I guess time for bed. Hope I get this figured out before summer. If not I guess I will hit the lake beaches with it as dig it all and let my fiancee use my M6. Soon as things work out i'll be going for the V3i possably. I hear a lot of good things.
Fiancee says I need a room for my detectors, LOL
62 and still moving right along at the curbstrips. Hitting a long forgotten town soon with the other guys hope I show them the yneed a White's.
