  • Used locator

    Good idea? Thinking from Ebay so it's sight unseen except for pics.

    Re: Used locator

    check what the return policy is first. no return, no buy

    now if you need a good locator, i have at least 6 that i can sell you. from old school triangulation to all digital.

    i can probably bring some to the round up and show the young guys, how us old guys use to do it

        depth was the killer

        never had any luck with them, but it can be done

                I hope your not talking about "Divining Rods or Water Witching". I've proven people wrong with that time after time after time after.......

                  They do quite a lot of "dowsing" up in this neck of the woods. They are quite often sucessfull. Thing is, if you check the geological aquafir map, we have water just about anywhere you may choose to drill.

                        "yep" I had to show my brother one day and then I dug up my own sewer just to take his beer money
                        It`s just one of them things you either got it or you don't. I didn't know how to do the depth till an old guy showed me one day.
                        I can use any kind of wire or metal piping.
                        Mine cross when I`m on top and spread when I walk a way. Some peoples go the other way.
                        When mine stop spreading that's the depth

                        I think it has something to do with the magnetic pull of the earth and the electricity in our bodys. If you get shocked just getting out of your truck in the winter then you can most likely do it too
                        I get pissed every time I go to open a door and get the "SNAP".....rotflmao

                            Steve, I actually do respect you for being a drum man but this theory is horse$hit. I've seen it done and dug to find the results. It's by chance.
