Hunted down their East coast 5 weeks, great machine, basically just turn your pulse delay on a bit till you here the click no further , gain up all the way, only back it off if it's un- stable, threshold to light hum, than dig to China , don't miss the faint hit's down deep, enjoy your machine, happy hunting , Earl

For starters:
  1. Set the knobs to the marks as shown in the pic below. These marks should be on your control box too.
  2. Lay a test coin on the ground.
  3. Place your coil several feet away from the coin
  4. Lift your coil about an inch off the ground
  5. Give the coil 6-7 seconds to let the S.A.T. or self adjusting threshold a chance to balance
  6. Then swing the coil over the coin

Other notes:
  1. The coil must constantly be in motion for it to work.
  2. You can further tune the detector by sweeping the coil over the test coin and reading page 5 and 6 of the manual.
  3. Here is a link to the manual.... https://www.manualslib.com/manual/10...ro.html#manual

The original manual is literally only 1 page with 6 steps. LOL, I'll snap a pic when I get home.
