Aye up all :thumbsup:
Me real name is Bruce
I bought my first detector when i was 14, well actually thats a fib as i had to talk my dad into writing a cheque out and send it off to the advert in the back of the Exchange and Mart, although it was all my own money saved from paper rounds and mucking out in the summer at the local cattle market :!:

This first machine was from a company called C.Scope, at that time they were a very young company, but are still going strong today producing all kinds of metal detecting machines and accessories.
I cant remember its name, but it was basic in its design.
A crook style handle, with 2 knobs on it, simple detecting :thumbsup:

I was hooked and in the following 40 years i have owned many machines, C.Scopes, Fishers, Noktas, Minelabs
At the moment i use the Minelab Equinox 800, a machine i really enjoy using and love being able to fiddle with the settings on the fly to suit my needs.

I live in a fantastic area in Somerset, surrounded by the Mendips, Quantocks and the Polden hills.

Anyways, enough about me, i'm off to see whats what here :thumbsup:

Some of you from a previous life have always asked me for an up to date photo of me :shock:
Maybe you have alterior motives and will use it as practice targets on your dartboards :lol:
But today my wife, who by the way is an excellent seamstress with over 50 years sewing experience has made me a face mask for when i do venture out into the big wide world
These masks are my wifes own design, and the feedback we have had has been fantastic, they are very comfy to wear, and due to her design using a pipe cleaner to form a seal over your nose then these dont steam up your glasses when worn correctly..
Anyways enough of the blurb, here i am in all my glory

I have put myself into spoiler tabs so you can clear the room of anyone with a nervous disposition or people who are scared easily :thumbsup:
Spoiler!

When her ladyship first clapped eyes on that image she thought she'd wandered off into a more 'specialist' sort of site by accident.

"Looks like he ought to be wearing a full leather kit underneath," she said.

"He probably is," I replied. "And, knowing Bruce, no doubt a mankini's involved somewhere down there."
