Some software and hardware updates now available for the QED.More  QED firmware updates (inc Auto GB  option) just announced here. New  QED hardware updates/options and pictures will be posted  first here  as they become available.

Another satisfied QED user! QED user report for 9 days detecting! User loves it, found it easy to use,found gold with it and he prefers it to his 5000! Also a report on a QED used at the beach for coin shooting.QED users reporting in with their multi ounce gold finds with the QED!
From  another QED user today:"Been out and about today testing and comparing against other machines etc in ground that has been horrible in the past.Bround balancing Ive found very simple and easy.'m using the Nokia booster but need a little more sound/threshold.Otherwise no complaints from me, very impressed."
and :"My QED with the 8” commander on it, out performed my SDC Got bits that don't register on my scales SDC has since been sold"
"My QED is terrific. Lightweight, very sensitive and screams at me when it hits any target. The Detect shaft and the 11" ultra sensing coil is a top quality fitout. I attached an external speaker which added under 200gms of weight in total and still remains very well balanced so i never feel fatigued after many hours of swinging."

Stinky  Pete : is the  Australian distributor for the QED.
This is the only forum where you can talk directly with the designer/ manufacturer of the QED and  also some very experienced QED users.
Jrbeatty and Reg Wilson  and  Yellowfin  (or Doug here for that matter!)have NO vested  or pecuniary interests(or secret deals or cash for comment or any other undisclosed benefits )in the QED other than using it to find gold which it is doing very successfully! The ONLY people deriving  an income from the QED(other than finding good gold) are the approved retailer and Bugwhiskers! The ONLY investor in the QED is Bugwhiskers!
I have never met Jrbeatty or Reg Wilson at Howards house or ANY other location!

The HH is/was basically an experimenters platform with plenty of controls for experimenting with different timing.  Also the HH works well,  especially when you use all the correct components.

Why don't you get your tech friends to design a better detector,  seeing as they know so much  smile

I agree it is a good learning metal detector and i find it works  ,my friends when they design things which i have now understood its best to design circuits with minimum trimmers and such ...if you see the surf pi a copy in many ways really of the hammer head..... parts have been dropped and trimmers down to a few ...looks a better design .

BTW there are no correct components for an experimental device or there would be no reason to experiment ?

I would not ask my friends to design one for me as you would not ask  your friends to work for you ..advice is one thing thats another.

I was just seeing what bolts will work to bracket the real PI case on.
It comes apart ...funny how half a rubber boat oar and a half a crutch fit together so well .
