Locating Other Treasures With A Metal Detector

Looking for a different kind of hunt? Itching for a road trip? If you’re just dying to take your metal detectors out for a spin but have nothing lined up in the treasure hunting department, perhaps a benchmark hunt is what you need.

Benchmarking is another hobby great for people interested in hunting and history. In this activity, the goal is to find “benchmarks” or survey markers scattered all around the country. This particular pastime started making waves in the mid-nineties when information about the locations of the marks became available online, growing as a spin-off of another popular, online information-propelled hobby, geocaching.

With over 700,000 benchmarks across the United States, there are likely quite a few near you. Usually, these survey markers are round metal disks commonly but not exclusively, made of brass; inscribed with its own particular information such as the year of installation (or even re-installation for replacement markers), name of mark or the “station” it pinpoints, designation (what type of marker it is, one with a triangle is a “triangulation station disk,” one with an arrow is called a “reference mark” as it points to a principal station that may be a few feet away), elevation, et cetera.

Your metal detector will play a very important role in your benchmark hunting. These markers are roughly just 3.5 inches in diameter and set in various places in different areas. Sometimes, markers are placed in the ground, set into large rocks, or even directly on a particular structure (sidewalks, bridge spans, roads). Metal detectors are very useful tools for discovering these markers especially when layers of earth hide them.

Arm yourself with some tools to discover these new finds and another hobby might be in your horizon: information on the markers you’re hunting care of a survey data sheet which you can get online, a camera to document your find, a compass, a probe, a digging tool and brush for clearing dirt from a marker, a tape measure, a GPS device to make it easier to locate the general area, and a metal detector for finding accidentally and intentionally buried markers.

Beach Metal Detectors: 6 Tips for Caring for Your Equipment

beach metal detectorEnjoy an alternative waterside activity with a beach metal detector and have fun combing the beach for hidden treasure. Although made for rugged handling and conditions, beach metal detectors need basic care  for longer life spans. Here are six simple tips to help you get the most out of your equipment.

1. RINSE. Wash off the saltwater from your metal detector immediately after use. Left to dry on your equipment, saltwater and its residue can cause rust and corrosion. A fresh water rinse and wipe down is an easy must after a beach outing.

2. WASH & DRY. Give your beach metal detector a proper cleaning with mild soap and water after each use. This will take care of any salt residue or sand particles the simple rinse didn’t catch. Getting rid of the grains will also prevent rusting and scratches. Wipe dry to finish.

3. A LITTLE SPECIAL ATTENTION. The battery compartment door is ringed by rubber that keeps it airtight and waterproof. After and in-between uses, remove the batteries and wipe the compartment’s interior with a dry, lint-free cloth. Close the battery compartment door and wipe the outside clean of sand and water.

4. AVOID EXTREMES. As with most battery-powered devices, metal detectors are sensitive to extreme temperatures and radiation.  Avoid prolonged exposure to severe temperatures whether hot or cold. On occasion, you might get tempted to stash it in the trunk of your car. Unfortunately, unlike your golf bag, it might not survive an afternoon of baking under the hot sun.

5. BEFORE YOU STORE. A last run-through before you stow your gadget until the next outing. Make sure the power is off. Take out the batteries in between uses—especially for longer periods—to safeguard against corrosion and battery leaks. Keep your metal detector in a cool, dry place.

6. SOME REMINDERS. It’s a metal detector. It’s not a cane, a stick, a crutch, or a shovel. Used as directed, it can bring hours and hours of discovery, learning, and fun. If it doesn’t function properly, check the batteries. If batteries aren’t the problem, check your warranty. Whether within the warranty or not, refrain from tinkering with it. First, non-sanctioned modifications may invalidate warranty; second, homemade modifications may prove hazardous.

Beach metal detectors are available in a wide variety of types and price ranges, but an investment in a high-quality one is the best move. Check out the lineup at Metal Detector Town for selections that won’t disappoint.

Metal Detector Helped Amateur Treasure Hunter Find Old Coins

One of the best things that a treasure hunter can have, whether he is an amateur or not, is a metal detector. Take the example of Dave Crisp, a hospital chef, the amateur treasure hunter who caught the attention of CNN.

Crisp a former hospital chef serendipitously found buried coins while searching for metal objects near Frome, Somerset, in the southwestern part of England.

With the help of some archeologists, Crisp was able to unearth a pot full of 766 coins. The coins contained the image of Roman general Marcus Aurelius Carausius, the Roman emperor who ruled independently in Britain from AD 286 to AD 293, the first one to strike coins in the country.  This find is the second largest in the UK. Crisp aptly calls himself a “metal detectorist,” referring to his dependence on the right metal detector for his treasure hunts.

A metal detector has different varieties and each one goes for the specific treasure you are hunting and the terrain of the place where you are hunting. There is a metal detector that is meant for a novice treasure hunter and there’s one for the more serious and seasoned treasure finder.

The year 2010 has brought several advances to metal detectors. One that belongs to the list of the top of the line models is the Treasure Hunter XJ9-3050. This unit has the patented multi-frequency deep search technology, which allows you to spot a dollar at 16 inches depth. This lets you identify the target, its depth and also pinpoint it.

One of its best features is the 32 bit Z-TEX Computer Microprocessor which allows for increased depth and discrimination. With this, the way to finding relics, coins, treasures at an ever greater depth is never better. At a depth of 10 inches and more, the detector can tell you if it’s an old wheat penny or the new zinc type of penny you just found.

The Treasure Hunter XJ9-3050 is only one of the many metal detectors that are available for any treasure hunting aficionado or a seasoned one. To find out more about their different features and benefits, you can check each one of them in the metal detector comparison chart found in this page at www.metal-detector-town.com.

Metal Detectors: Tips on Balancing Ground

If you are frustrated by the load of trash and useless items your metal detector seems so keen on beeping about, you may need to adjust and balance your Ground level. The Ground knob on your metal detectors sets the level of rejection your metal detector gives ground mineralization.

Ground mineralization, simply put, is the kind of mineral present on the ground. To balance your Ground means detecting the difference between rusted iron nails, common salt, and genuine gold coins. Fine tuning the Ground control for your metal detector for a specific area will improve its performance especially if the All Metal mode is selected.

Fine tune your metal detector’s Ground level by doing the following:

1. Go to the area you wish to search.

Different areas require different ground level since most places have different ground mineral concentration. A beach or the riverside may have higher concentration of minerals due to sand crystals, gold, and other mineral sediments compared to your neighbor’s yard.

2. Do a test run.

Turn your metal detector’s Threshold control until a slight hum you hear a slight hum. Set your metal detector to All Metal mode. Lower your metal detector to search height then slowly lift it to about four inches. Do this repeatedly.

3. Listen for sound disparity.

As you lift and lower your metal detector, listen for changes in the hum volume. Ideally, if your Ground balance is correct, the volume will stay the same even if it is on search height or four inches high. To aid in this, concentrate on volume disparity only as your coil or loop approaches the ground.

4. Adjust your Ground knob accordingly.

Your goal is to find the ground setting that allows only minimal or no change at all in the volume of the hum as the loop is lifted and lowered. Adjust your Ground knob until you hit the right balance.

5. Reduce sensitivity controls.

A great metal detector allows you to adjust sensitivity controls if you find it hard to achieve the right balance. Metal Detector Town offers the best metal detectors and metal detecting equipment with advanced sensitivity control and great customer support.
