I took my nephew out this afternoon to try out his new Ace 250, and although he didn't find anything I did managed to score my first Penny as well as a 1944 THREEPENCE big_smile

I'll update the pic once I've cleaned them up.

Yeah mate it’s fantastic. You definitely have to drill holes in yours, it makes a huge difference.

I didn't think of that but yeah I might give it a go, I also just noticed he put little groves across the top for grip, not a bad idea.

Tonight finds on Terrigal Beach include $7.15 in moderns, a small cross (not sure on the metal) and a very small name tag off a bracelet (possibly silver). My nephew found 5 cents, just needs a little more practice I think.

Does the cross have any numbers or stamps on it anywhere? Tell your nephew to hang in there, I didnt find anything for weeks with my Ace250 at first, and then it just happened and started to find heaps. I done alright tonight, will post a pic later. Its 1:20am and I'm knackered  roll

Wooster you pointer out about front of plastic shovel been cut. I am not sure this is the case as they are always dragging it around so they know where they've been. Hence gridding in a way. Dragging it through sand constantly would be like sand paper. just a thought.

Thats a bummer, I never got to go out last night as you know  sad  It seems that everyone is not having much luck on the beach's around here. I wonder if there is a detecting god that is punishing us all for something  O:)  Looks like its back to the bush then  8o
