December 14, 2020 - Cleans up nice Eh !
Cleans up nice Eh ! Well here we are again Metal Detecting fans. The detoctorist himself along with a few pics. So with winter now upon us, I've turned my attention to more indoor endeavors and closer to home. Yeah... like in the garage. Research continues. I've purchased several aerial photos from Natural Recourses of select detecting sites. These photos are each 338.5 kb in size, in a resolution of 2038, taken from 2000 feet up. Wow. Clear pictures but it takes a while to download or send. I also got my researcher number for the Manitoba Archives but until the Covid thing cools down, there's still no actual physical access. Hopefully I'll get in come January. I have been able to make contact with a few land owners just east of Winnipeg and am working on obtaining Land Owner permissions to detect on a few more homesteads. It's close to home and these date back to the 1890's. I hope to have access come May 2021. You'll all be the first to know. Anyone wanting to come along? With a little help from Tess and online shopping, I purchased an 8" bench grinder with a circular wire brush. Heck of a deal on Black Friday. I've been using it to clean up restore choice metal items. The square nails and the horse tack came out really nice and with a coat of oil, they will keep their look and not rust up again. Here are the before and after photos. And then there's the guy with the beard... all I need is a Wizard's hat and a wand and I could just conjure up the treasure eh! Stay well all and enjoy the season.
