My new toy arrived today
« on: June 22, 2015, 17:12 »
My new makro racer  arrived today, went out to an old house site that I had previously been found old forks spoon and a few other items, now to study the online videos. Only one issue is the angle  of the hand piece being very steep for my not so good hands I may get used to it?

Welcome aboard the RACER club. ;D 
I was not impressed with the handle angle either on first encounter, however you will get use to it.
You'll soon forget about it when your digging coins in and around rusty items. Dont forget, the RACER is not swing speed critical....you'll also find it pretty much only sounds off when there is something within its reach....no falsing. You will get bleed over from the low to high tone when coming off of iron...mostly long rusty items like nails. (2tone mode)
Small wiggles in and around the target will soon let you know if its worth the dig as the iron grunt will be a constant reminder. If two targets are down there, you'll get the distinct high tone. Also, the center of the coil gives a far better indication.
Good luck.
