Coinmaster 2/DB series 2

Post by Merneo » Sat May 26, 2018 8:27 pm

Hi,

Coinmaster 2/DB series 2

This is my second detector first in teens an old scope used with my dad - found nothing that interesting except an old key

Does anyone have any tips - except get a newer detector - lol

Was on a budget wanted a detector for a bit of on beach detecting on holiday

My expectations are not high - but do hope for some beginner luck - lol

it appears to be working ok - in air test 6-8 inches detecting range

Discrimination looks best mid point

Avoiding nails and bottle tops much more and missed the gold ring I was using as a test

Probably dry sand - might try wet see how it works

but anything you can share will be a help

I do have the manual

hope you can help

Thanks

Paul

If its in a blue metal case then that was my first detector and I found lots with it, excellent pin pointing, used to do the park and only ever brought a table knife to extract the finds. Smashing machine that had lots of knobs that I never understood at the time, Liam ::g

Hi Liam

Yes it's blue

I was on a budget for hols - but I often feel that some electronic devices are better before mass production - don't get me wrong I am sure a modern detector are miles ahead of this

But often there is more stability of components before the compromises of mass production - etc

Hol's is in June will post a report of what I find

Thanks

Paul

Ps Did you ever detect on wet sand with it - I understand this can be difficult from what I read

Hi does anyone know if the signal reading on the meter has any correlation to depth

Or is it just strength of response

My garden to full of peg springs to do an active test

And will be using on dry sand next week so not like for like test

Thanks

The meter is mainly for pinpointing.

Look for the strongest signal when swinging east to west. Then the same north to south.

It is possible to use the detector on wet sand in all metal mode. Well the similar 600D i have works. But only if the sand is very flat and even. You have to keep the coil the same height from ground and go slow you will hear a slight up and down from the threshold as you cant keep the coil exactly the same height but a coin will raise in tone much quicker.

Workable but a real pain.

The meters on these old Transmit Receive/Induction Balance (TR/IB) machines relates purely to the signal intensity. The use of the meter for pinpointing a signal is, as stated by 'Koala', it's most useful function. ::g

Regarding depth measurement, It was possible to get an idea of depth with these meters in that if a sound was produced by the detector with no movement of the meter needle, then the target object was liable to be either more than 5 or 6 inches deep or the target is a very small and shallow one!
