First post/First detector

Post by jimowl » Fri Dec 29, 2017 2:47 pm

Hello all. First post so be gentle. New year, new hobby and all that. Have just joined the no doubt very long list of pre purchasers for an Equinox 800 at a no doubt well known yellow coloured dealer (not sure on naming protocols on here).

Completely none of the gear and no idea at the moment so have lots to learn. Looking forward to receiving it (hopefully) early in 2018.

Welcome to the forum. And good luck on the wait for the detector. It's usually if u go off subject and compare stuff your comments get took off .. I 've had a few shall we say. .. You forget about the rules. There actually is a forum rules somewhere if you want some light reading. Hope the 800 is worth the wait. I believe late Jan hopefully. ::g

Hope the dealer recovers quickly from the jaundice. :))

Hello 'jimowl' ::g Welcome aboard the forum. I don't know if there is a long waiting list for the soon to be released (apparently) '800' but there has been plenty of interest shown by members of this forum. Any update would therefore be appreciated should you be in such a position and of course your opinion on the machine once you get hands-on, would, I'm sure, be equally well received (via the 'Minelab' forum) ::g All the best and Happy New Year. -=+:-P Regards ss47

Welcome to the forum, which I am sure you will find friendly and helpfull.

I am certain that the wait for the Equinox 800 will be worth it. When it arrives and you have used it a few times feedback would be appreciated.

While waiting for it do plenty of background research into your area and try to get your own permissions. I would also suggest joining NCMD http://www.ncmd.co.uk/ which provides £10 million insurance cover and a regular magazine which is great value for £8 a year or FID http://fid.newbury.net/

You have already been pointed to the "rules" of the site, they are simple and logical, but have the simple aim of keeping the site "FAMILY FRIENDLY" - sadly unlike some forums I could name.

Evan
