I figured I should post this here as I posted the information elsewhere on the forum that's less relevant than here.
Our extremely innovative Russian friends have managed to make a range of aftermarket coils for the Equinox, they remove the security chip out of your coil, reseal your coil and give you an adapter which then allows you to run aftermarket coils. They make a range of sizes too. My pick of the bunch would be the 9.5x5.5!
That's the range of sizes and pricing in Russian currency.
You can find out more about it here on these Russian forums, you'll have to use Google translate or something similar to read it.
And videos from them about the coils
and lucky last 🙂
When nobody can do it, the Russians do and they do it well.
When I bought my tdi sl it came with the 12 and 7.5 coil. Recently I have sold the detector but I still have the 7.5 dual coil and I will sell it. Seeing photos to see the price I could ask for it turns out that my plate has something on the cable that I can't see in the images of other dishes I've seen. I would like if a partner could tell me what it is ?. Thank you
I had snagged my dd coil on a log and didn't realize I had put a hairline crack in it until I had noticed it was falsing on me and every time I tapped a small branch or brush it would sound off. I had made a small vacuum degassing chamber/pressure chamber for casting resins out of a paint sprayer and luckily my coil just fit inside. First thing I did was use the vacuum chamber to draw out any moisture. Next I built a small barrier out of some tape, filled it with epoxy then used the pressure chamber at 60 psi to force the epoxy into the crack.
Not perfect but the coil does gb now. I think there are internal cracks that would be impossible to fill but at least I have it as a backup until my new coil comes in.
My next project I think is to give some lexan sheets a go for coil scuffs that cover the bottoms so branches don't get caught up. Friend of mine wants one for his Nox 800 so will see how that goes.
