Detectors have come an awfully long way from the old anolog machines of the 70's. You'll still find stuff with that old battery eater but it is a bit of a trial. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, reminds me of my first detector from back in the 70's. :cool:

That is good i did not know that they had harved the battery pac so early in the piece, that would make the BH much lighter, than the RB7 which takes 16AA. :icon_tong

RB-7 manual

Hi there in downunder, How you´re doingß hope everythings just fine in downunder. Well I´d like to ask you if you maxy could send me a manual of the rb7. I used to buy one back in the 80`s when I was living in Sydney. Unfortunatly did the manual get lost but still got the RB7 and its still working.
It would be very kind of you if you could send me that to Austria. My Email is Thanks a lot mare for you support. cheers - Oskar:wave:

Hello everyone.

Back in 79 or so my parents bought a D-tex Coinshooter II (I think that was the name) to go to where they grew up. It was stolen around 1988...

I just bought a Red Baron from ebay that I hope works. It was sold by a woman with no battery holder and no battery door. I went to RS yesterday and bought new 9V clips and two 8 AA battery packs.

I am hoping this thing works. If it does then I have it almost back to original. All it needs is the battery cover. If anyone knows where to get one I would appreciate it. I hope someone took it apart to repair a broken wire or something and it just never got put back together. $50 I gambled!

It appears to be in good shape. A few scratches and scuffs but nothing major. I know it is not up with the $1000 rigs but I believe it is a good starter even though is it is an old one.

I am getting married Monday so my budget is a bit limited with the ring,dress and you get the idea...

Anyway, hello...I'll be posting my finds if they're worth posting. I know some very good places around here (15 miles east of Joplin MO).

Yes, we all made it through the tornado...but many did not...
