Wanted Broken Equinox Coil

Recommended Posts

As an electronics tinkerer, I would at some point like to attempt making a custom coil for my Equinox. I need to salvage the electronics board from an existing coil in order to do this. So I'm after a suitable donor.
I'm located in the United Kingdom. As most of you guys are in the US/Canada or Australia/NZ, I should state that the international carriage charges are not a barrier.

Please get in touch if you think you have anything suitable.

You might end up waiting a while as every equinox is still under warranty at this point.

I'm in no hurry. But it has been out for 18 months, there may be someone who has accidentally crushed one in their vehicle door, or their dog chewed through it, or some mishap... or bashed it, cracked the casing and got water-damage as a result.

The only thing I dont like about the equinox is the whole chip in the coil thing. I like to tinker and would probably try coil building if not for that. I'm also sure whatever I created wouldn't work all that great (I didn't say I was a good tinkerer) so in the end it probably just saves me the effort.

      Looking for a true mono coil for my TDI.  I have the Super Pulse 350 that I could trade in too.  Like to have either a 12 or 7 1/2" mono coil if possible.

      I need to replace my current pinpointer (I think it's a Bounty Hunter), but I don't want to use a 9V battery with my new pinpointer. I will probably buy a Minelab Pro-Find, Fisher F-Pulse, Whites TRX or the Garrett Pro-Pointer AT (aka: the Garrett Carrot). But if I buy one that uses a 9V battery, it's staying in the package until I have a functional method or operating it without a 9V battery. Because using the Minelab or Garrett Carrot is my preference, I will plan on examining the feasibility of running either with AAA batteries (lithium, NiMH LSD and alkaline).

      Therefore, I need a pinpointer to work on when trying to size everything, but I don't want to work on a fully functional one, in case I break it during development. So I'm looking for anyone who might have any of the following pinpointers:

      Minelabs Pro-Find 35 (primarily)
      Garrett Carrot Pro-Pointer (maybe)

      I'm willing to pay $5 per propointer + your actual cost of shipping. I can pay via Paypal and will add $1 to cover the fee. If you feel a higher price is warranted, let me know why and I may be willing to give you more. For example, if you have a Garrett Pro-Pointer and the only thing wrong with it is a broken switch, I'd be willing to pay more than $5 for it.

      Oh, and I'm only looking for sellers in the USA (to save on shipping costs on my end, that's all).

      Thanks for looking!
