Anyone here ever entertain this DIY kit?

Heck, it seems just cool enough to get me in to the world of coin hunting.

I only found one thread on here that even mentioned, and surprisingly (or perhaps not), nobody else touched upon it.

I just came across a video on youtube while looking at ATC audio clips (go figure)

I don't roll search, but I don't see a purpose in a machine that sorts cents or halfs. If you can see a date, only 1982 would need sorting for cents by either a machine or by using a scale. If you can see dates for halfs, why would you need a machine to tell you if its 90%, 40% or clad.

The digital scale I bought was less than $10 I think

I have a Ryedale sorter, and even though I still look through my coins for collectible dates/errors, I still find it very useful. I presort my coins with the Ryedale, and have it put the coppers into a small tray that I can visually sort with a glance instead of one at a time. The zincs go into a bigger box for reviewing later for WAMs CAMs and others. I find it helpful to have to only think about certain sets of collectible coins at a time. In addition I have a better chance of finding that elusive 83 copper. Trust me, once you use a sorter you won't want to go without

These are the views of one man and should be taken as such, no more, no less. Lol

I figured they would have gotten all those through in 1982, with all the varieties and such...

I had a coinalyzer and sold it rather quickly. I found that I enjoyed hand searching more than sorting for copper. Also, if you don't buy the automatic feeder the coinalyzer will jam easily.

My Ryedale never jams. It can gobble up a box of cents faster than I can unroll them

Somewhat random, but if you're quarter roll or dime roll hunting, I use an extremely easy technique for sorting out the silver.

This does no good on key dates, but it's 100% on silver.

Unroll the coins, and look at the sides. 65+ quarters show copper on the side, 64- quarters show no copper.

If one of the coins is questionable, just set it aside and inspect it closer.

Easy enough..

Partially true. I too use one. Only mine is called Bank of America. I give them a bag of coins and they not only sort them, but they count them as well. Then they simply put the amount in my account. No need to purchase a coin counter, sorter, separator, material to make rolls, etc. Only some gas for my car to get to the bank. See some nice looking tellers, get a cup of coffee free at a table up front and no need to waste time playing around with piles of coins that I've already looked at.
