I discussed this with Dave Demoss this morning over a few laughs and promised to try to stay on track, so here goes. An excessory that really comes in handy in this hobby, is a little tool that's usually long and slender, takes batteries to operate and best of all it vibrates when you hit the target. If you guessed wrong, it's called a pinpointer . Used to pinpoint your target after finding it with your metal detector. It will save you alot of time in locating what ever it is in that clump of dirt. Your partner can use it while you swing the coil for other targets. The one I've got has a paddle at the end of it, and is water proof, Vibra-tech 720 I think is what it's called. I've also seen the White Bulls eye pin pointer used and it's an extremely useful addition to this hobby.
