Default I'm "Paying it Forward"

Due to the generosity and help from members of this board, specifically "skiwhiz" and "carolk" . I would like to "pay it forward"
I have an older detector that says " VLF treasure detector" I bought it from a garage sale and used it for about a month before I bought my ace.
Its in great shape, works fine and looks like it has had little use.
If interested and you will cover shipping costs, I will wrap it up and send it to you.
Again, thanks for the help, the generosity and a GREAT website.
I am happy to be a part of it. Mike

The detector weighs approx. 3 lbs NOT packed for shipping. So add a bit more for box and packing. I am thinking it should still total less than 5 lbs. My zip is 97023. I will try to get it boxed up for a accurate weight.
