Ace 250 settings

Post by Mickie_76 » Thu Mar 07, 2019 5:07 pm

Hi all I had my 1st day detecting today after buying the ace 250 yesterday
I had a cracking 1st day I pulled out a musket ball a new penny an 1875 silver three pence and a barrage of rubbish
I put the detector in relic mode and discriminated out iron and foil and notched the sensitivity down a notch but I was still pulling out foil like a good un lol
Is this normal or do I need to do something different to avoid the iron and foil.

Well done on your Threepence. ::g
Try using Custom, so that anything below 60 is discriminated out. Foil can still come in the 90`s but so does Silver 91-93. You will also get iron. 60 to 93 will find you all the metals.
Hope this helps.

My last detector was an Ace 250 and it was a great machine, found tons of stuff. I always had the discrimination on zero and dug everything that sounded good. You never know what condition the soil is in and how it effects the signals, a foil signal one day might be a silver or roman coin the next.

Just dig everything that doesn't grunt.

Yes ,I agree with Dave the slave, its inadvisable to knock out foil .
