CS6mxi and coke

Post by rab the ranter » Fri Nov 07, 2014 3:59 pm

Hi all, I'm seriously thinking of buying one of these over a GMP.
Are there any problems with coke, if so how is this dealt with?
The GMP does have a coke switch but I could buy a new 6cmxi
For the price of a good used GMP. Any advice is much appreciated.
Cheers, Rab.

from the manual pal,

The discrimination control is used to determine the detector’s response to ‘mid range’ targets such as foil, nickel and 9ct gold. with the control set to minimum, (and the disc volume set to maximum) every target apart from iron will give a high pitch tone. As the control is turned progressively clockwise, the response from these metals will then become a mid pitch tone. It is then possible to reduce the disc volume on these targets so that only targets above discrimination point are identified. This can be used to ignore the effects of coke contamination

you can take out coke altogether, at what cost im not sure ::g

Hi Rab

I find I can easily identify both coke and foil by a flat mid tome by setting the disc volume between r and 4 and dics at same setting. I never dig coke now, apart from when the ground is soaking wet and then sometimes I dig as gives an iffy high tone. s there are three tones on the 6mx is fairly easy to get silver and copper to high tome and coke/foil into mid tone by playing about depending on conditions as described by the mole.

Cheers for that guys, I suppose its all trial and error and by playing
Around with the settings myself. I was a bit worried after I was told
By someone who had an earlier model that it was a bit of a coke magnet
And for that reason he didn't keep it for long.

i,v used both machines and much prefer the 6mxi,
better discrim, depth and tones, coke and irons not a problem
in my opinion
better a ping over a button than a fart over iron

I agree with all of the above, since purchasing my 6Mxi it has been a pleasure to be out detecting ::g .

Coke and crap has not been a problem, digging smaller plugs due to pinpointing has been a godsend, and as for weight and balance due to the control box being mounted under the arm cuff :D , well I don't even know I've got anything strapped to my arm apart from my watch. Lol. ;)

Its very easy to reject coke with the 6mx.

Set Disc around 2 - 3 & coke will sound with a very distinctive "mid" tone.

Coke is not a problem on most of my sites, .... however one of my fields has been
used as a dumping ground at the start of the last century & has an abundance of
coke as well as loads of non ferrous bits & pieces. My 6mx picks out the non ferrous
with ease whilst coke can be ignored due to the response it gives. Sometimes a iffy
signal will be a good target & coke close together.
A couple of weeks ago i found a tiny clipped hammered penny - that sang out
loud & clear in an area of coke infestation !!!!!

I have great faith in my 6mx & think its a brilliant piece of equipment.
I have found more hammered coins in the last 2 years with the 6mx than i have over
the previous 36 years with several other detectors -i wouldnt hesitate to recomend it to
anyone & would certainly buy another one should the need arise.
