Topic: really "hooked" on this hobby

New Post by leslie(nova scotia) on Sun Jun 26, 2016 9:45 am

After doing the flea market thingie and making a few extra "bob" for the UK trip hit a few fields. Then my Freedom 3 crapped out so out came the Seahunter MK11 and into the drink this bouy did frolic. You can see by the second row of finds why I say I'm "hooked" on this hobby. These were found in a heavily used swimming area. 12 over quota, a Bic that can still flick and a dog tag from the "Nova Scotia' Contingent of the Boy Scouts. Unfortunately no key to the handcuff chain. Done out big time. Time for a beer while watching the C.W.S. and Blue Jays...............heaven from the living room lazy bouy!
As for the Pro...they cut me a break on the repairs........totalled $65 Canadian which is cheaper than a new machine. Begged and grovelled......never again. Apparently it was the rubber damaged whereas the male plug in (coil) was not put in right and damaged the female receptor. Looking here and there to see what I'll buy for a new machine. :crazy2:

Thanks Michael,
Good to know, and I agree with you that every ounce lighter makes a difference, not to mention balance ! Guess I'll have to save my money ! I figure I need a few backup machines anyway- maybe about six, Lol !
Just have to talk the wife into it ! Well, I can dream anyway !

See a couple of finials, not sure of there use, but easy to google. A bayonet frog clip, belt tip end, what might be part of a shouldder scale - the 3 hole thing, what most seem to call a parasol adjuster... although a farmer once looked at one and said it was from a sprayer. Maybe a part of an openwork buckle, and a broken watch winder.

Hi Derek, I'm sure you'll find some cool old coins on that property. On the Pro, most of my large cents ring in around mid 70's (76-77 range). Best of luck and keep us posted. HH?

congrats on a major accomplishment, and 8 silver coins is one more than I've ever found...
an early half ranks right up there with a vicky quarter in my book...
