And nothing over 1000v for more than 10 seconds.. or magic smoke appears :D
I have been told that it's smoke that makes electricity work because if you let it out it wont work any more.

When I smell electrical smoke , I know its going to cost me money ??? , my pin pointer was not working ,  thought it was a flat battery , when I unscrewed the cap the smoke escaped , it was still under warranty , but the postage was all mine , how that works out when its not my fault , I don't know ! ::)

I repaired a guys pro-find a few weeks ago, he had the bright idea that if he removed the LED, It would give more power to the coil.... :o

Nice topic I enjoyed reading everyone's posts so I will add mine. My son Reginald and I have tried a few different things but mainly we are sailors who enjoy sailing both our trailer sailer a 28 foot south coast magnum called Water Pistol and sailing boards on flat water and the surf. Mabee you just figured out why I do mostly beach hunting?  True they go together very well. While we're  waiting for the wind to blow we can go hunting.

My other hobbies are, watching my AFL team 'Tigers' try to win, geocaching, kayaking, playstation (after night shift), caravanning, reading (non-fiction only), company of others and occasional movie watching. Before dirt fishing, I used to like water fishing.

Surfing, playing music(drums and bass guitar)and this other hobby that threatens my marriage, my social live and leaves me sleep deprived. Dam you tiny metal objects that mock me from your sandy little home :'(

A pity we don't have a watch repairer around here. We had a member of a church group, Bretheren i think, but he moved away. I think you used to be an instrument repairer Adrian ?

Just recently started into Geocaching. My wife loves it and so trips away to detecting spots are planned around routes with caches to find along the way.

OK, this is the LAST old thread I will resurrect tonight (yes I am bored, away from home and aint got me no friends...)

Shooting, (currently in Tas for a couple of weeks for 3 Nationals anyone around Deloraine or Blue Hills hit me up) machining both manual and CNC, I have a manual lathe and a milling machine I have retro fitted a CNC kit to, now I can make some cool stuff for my shooting hobby and my detecting hobby. (not sure what yet, open to ideas other than a beach scoop, already done that)
