Oh bugger, I can't hold my metal detector!

You lot might be hearing a little from from me for the next few weeks as I have sold all else I can do, you lucky lot ey !

At work on Monday my hand got into a fight with a 200kg scrap bin and a 0.8mm sheet of steel, there was only ever going to be one winner of that line up and it was never my hand.

So come Tuesday I was laid up on the operating table watching as the tendons in the back of my hand were stitched back together, it was pretty gruesome to say the least.

Now I have a stupid cast pot on my hand and half way up my arm which serves to stop me moving my fingers and wrist. The problem with this cast is that I can't work, drive, metal detect or even scratch my arse. So my time now and for the next 4-6 weeks will be spent reading metal detecting blogs and forums and dreaming about holding my own metal detector.

Today I was bored and frustrated and to be honest just losing complete motivation to even get out of bed so I decided to play about with metal detecting videos.

So here you have it my creation for today, a compilation of my best finds so far this year and also a brand new video intro. Please if you watch it leave some kind of feedback it will make me feel like I have some bloody purpose in a dark and depressing time haha.

Happy hunting you jammy sods, link is below.

Metal detecting at the River Humber 14/3/2015 + metal detecting video.

Hello everyone.

I hope your all well and getting plenty of metal detecting time? Today I went down to one of my favorite old detecting areas, the River Humber. To be precise the area I detected was Hessle Foreshore directly under the Humber Bridge.

 I was using my Teknetics Eurotek pro with my usual settings, sensitivity 8, discrimination 0 and volume 10 iron audio on. I also had my new Garrett pro-pointer to hand (great bit of kit!)

From the off I had plenty of signals to go at. There is a lot of big iron and deep iron which tends to fool the Eurotek so you have to try very hard to distinguish what is a good signal and what is a not so good signal but I'm getting the hang of it now.

I made plenty of finds today the vast majority of which were modern coins, which to be honest I expected after detecting this area plenty of times before. I was ever optimistic that I may find a gold or silver ring because I have found many in this location before but it was just not meant to be.

In the end I managed to get covered in sticky Humber gloopy mud and got a good pocketful of coins.

As per I have recorded the find on video and you can check it out by clicking the link below. I have also made a small intro to my videos which plays at the start, I'm useless with computers so please forgive me if you think its crap haha

Happy hunting all

A new metal detecting video

Hi all just a quick blog post to let you all know what metal detecting I have been doing.

This weekend I have had two metal detecting trips, one to the river Humber and one to my usual pasture permission. Both trips were short and the finds were far and few between but I got to open a birthday present from my Mrs early which was a Garrett pro pointer.

For three years I have coped without one but after using it I can't don't really know how. It made recovering the find so much easier especially in the silty Humber mud.

Anyway I will let the video do the talking so click  here to view it.
