I can't say that I've found any finds that can be worn or re-used just yet, but some of you might have found something that is fit for purpose? :thumbsup:

I have a Nokta Simplex, only had it a few months. But my first silver coin with it was a Queen Wilhelmina of Netherlands 25 Cent. So I have made a mount for it and mounted it onto my stem. Hopefully it will bring me good luck....... Although its failed so far πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ

I have been saving my bits of silver and would like to get it melted down and made into some jewellery for my other half, but the Covid crises has put that on hold for now...

That's got to bring you some good fortune very soon. :thumbsup:

What a good idea Peter, are you thinking of having it made into a ring, or a pendant perhaps?

My other half initially suggested a ring, but i need to find a local jeweller to see what's feasible. I would also like to get a charm made for her charm bracelet, but again it all depends on finding somebody able to do the work...

Why not just cast both yourself and tidy them up with jewellers files? That would make them much more personal. :thumbsup: :Thinking:

My other half claims any decent rings that I find and wears them. :roll:

I did consider that, but given I can't hammer a nail in straight, it probably would not end well, and would likely be "special" for the wrong reasons! :roll: :roll:

Hi Andy,
Although it was eyes only, it was while detecting.
This is the childs plastic spade i have mentioned before when posting about beach detecting.
Have used it for nearly 20 years, have had to re glue the handle after it came loose.
Apart from half a dozen occasions when i used a CS4pi on wet sand, it has helped to extract around 350 pounds, several thousand beer tops and other items.
What i like about it, is i can leave the sand on the spade and waft the detector over it.
Even have a spare for when my son comes out with me.
On the beach this morning were several buckets, spades, balls, plastic scoops, etc.Have also found lots of tent pegs, which get used for garden netting and were even emergency goal net pegs at a couple of matches.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

I can't say I'm superstitious at all but when I found this lucky charm of a little Cornish Pixie, probably from a key fob, I couldn't resist. :thumbsup:

I use a thimble found on the fields for sewing belts and loops on my bags and waistcoats etc
Still does a great job after all those years in the soil.
