New Video On Effect Of Voltage On Various Coils

Recommended Posts

Finally got to work on testing the 7 1/2DF,  8x6 Sadie, MJ 8x12, and 12"DF. Did a comparison on the 7 1/2DF and Sadie with both battery packs, and a comparison of the MJ 8x12 FM, and the Whites 12"DF at 16v.

EDIT: I notice I cut off the early portion of the Miner John comparison. Hope you get enough of the sensitivity of that coil. It works very well on my SL.

Hey Jim

 I thank you for all the trouble you went to.

 In my opinion the small dual field with the higher voltage done great but Sadie didn’t do bad .

 It just comes down to if you want to hunt with the best coil you got for small gold the first time are using one that’s not so good.

 Jim thanks again for your work and making the video. As said Seeing is Believing .

 The Best!

PS I think Reg offered White’s some mods on the TDI but they didn’t want to talk with him. Correct me if you know different.

Yes...I wouldn't feel handicapped with either one of those small coils. They're really close. I thought the Sadie was bit better at the lower voltage, and the DF at the higher voltage.

My understanding of Reg's relationship with Whites is about the same as yours, but Whites did finally initiate the second mod, on the TDI SL, in, I think, 2016. I know it was done on the Special Edition, for sure. They never did the sweep speed mod, however. I don't think they ever did any of Reg's mods on the original TDI's.

I remember him saying at one point they stop talking to him. He wasn’t asking for a hand out on what he had to offer.

 I myself think it had to do with White’s Electronics boys didn’t want to look like this guy off the streets knew more than they did. The funny part of it all he did know more.

I believe you're correct Chuck, silly human pride is one our weakest links.  It prevents growth.

      Hi all,
      I am looking to buy an additional coil for my MK 14kHz to get some extra depth while in the field. I cannot decide between AF35 and KR40. Could you please advise which coil shall I purchase to add some depth for coin, jewellery and relic hunting and why?
      I would really appreciate your answer!
      Thank you in advance!

      whites garage sale  so I just ordered this from whites garage sale, now my question is when would I use each of these coils?

      Has anyone found a lower shaft for White's TDI to adapt to Minelab coils or coils made for Minelab correctly without extra rubber washers? Tecknetic's lower shaft comes close but is too short.

      VLF detectors can come with DD or concentric coils. This is similar to but not quite the same thing as DD versus mono on a pulse induction detector. There are three basic coil types in wide use, Concentric, Double D (DD) and Mono. A VLY detector transmits and receives simultaneously and so there must be both a transmit coil and a receive coil. A pulse induction (PI) detector can alternate between transmit and receive and so one coil can be employed as both transmit and receive in an alternating fashion. There is confusion on this but simply put VLF (induction balance or continuous wave) detectors do not employ mono coils. A VLF can only employ the concentric or DD options. A pulse induction coil can  work with all three types.

      Metal detector coil types illustrated - concentric vs DD vs mono
      VLF detectors are more alike than different these days. One thing that can make a real difference is what coil the detector comes with. Two very similar models will be quite different if one comes with a 12" round concentric, and another an 11" x 7" DD.
      In this case the very same detector can be turned into two different detectors by changing coils. Here are a couple rarely seen on the F75 - the 10" x 5" DD and 10" elliptical concentric. A big difference between the Teknetics T2 and Fisher F75 was that the F75 came later and the ability to use concentric coils was added. The T2 can only use DD coils.
      Why DD or concentric? DD coils are all the rage these days. However, concentrics have more consistent detection patterns with less dead spots up close. Every notice how that DD coil goes wacky on shallow targets? And concentric coils are much better at identifying flat ferrous targets like bottle caps. Here it is from the guy that should know best, Dave Johnson, lead designer on the F75.

      Coil Basics by Carl Moreland
      I like the 10" DD for the solid design, better for working in stubble or other locations where an open coil might hang up. The concentric just for being better behaved. The DD is the better prospecting coil for bad ground. Concentrics do well on milder ground.
      A note on coils. The blade like knife edged detecting pattern depicted in DD marketing ads is largely myth. Electromagnetic fields radiate and simple coils cannot focus them into beams. A round concentric coil has a search field shaped like a soccer ball cut in half. A similar size DD coil will have a search field more like a football cut in half lengthwise. If you ever doubt this, just fire up your detector with a DD coil, flip it over, and run a coin under the coil noting where the signal fades at different locations under the coil.
      Finally, depth is more related to coil width than coil length. Think of a 5" x 10" coil as a stretched out 5" coil, not as a skinny 10" coil. That is why when listing elliptical coil sizes you will often see me putting the small number first. Marketers do it the other way around so you tend to think you are getting more than you are.
