The Tarsacci Can Stand Alone


Recommended Posts

We all know that if you put the Tarsacci down on the ground with the coil flat it’s not going to fall over. I don’t know if you notice when you do put it down right below the hand grip can hit the ground.

 We spend lots on our detectors and I like protecting my investment. I’ve made other stands for other detectors I have so why not my Tarsacci.

 The best material for them is 1/2” Hot Water PVC pipe. 
 Here’s what you going to need.

One PVC T

4-45 degree joints  

3 -end caps 

 About 6” of 1/2” PVC

 Just remember everything is 1/2”

 You will need cleaner and glue. I always use the clear glue.

 I didn’t want the stand too wide so I cut off about 3/16 off each side of the T and the same on two of the 45’s. I done this so to narrow the stand so not to hit you when swinging.

 I hope all the pictures will help if you wish to make one. The black paint is the type that will stick to any surface.

Hi Locator  
I’m hoping it won’t be too long down the road we’ll have a small coil to go with our Tarsacci and this is where a stand will come in handy keeping it upright. Even now it will keep that beautiful carbon fiber out of the dirt.

Based on when the Beast coil came out with respect to the original Tarsacci should only be about 2 or 3 more years before we see another accessory coil.

Chuck,

Do you just have the Beast coil or both the original and beast?

I ask because that original coil form factor 9x11 is not a bad option given the alternative is nothing.  I like smaller coils too, but pretty pleased with the original Tarsacci coil for picking out keepers amongst the junk.  Pretty good small target sensitivity.

I been told that in the not to distant future we will be able to buy a lower shaft as a single item. When the heavens open and a lower shaft falls out I will buy said coil. I just like my extra coils already mounted when the need calls.

According to the post linked below, Steveg of Steve's Detector Rods should have Tarsacci lower rods available now...

Thanks, guys; I hadn't seen this post.

I now offer two-piece lower shafts, for the Tarsacci...the middle shaft connects directly to your Tarsacci upper, while the middle and lower two sections are connected by one of my own cam locks -- the same ones I use on my other shafts, and very similar to the Tarsacci cam lock.  Advantages of my shaft include both sections being smaller in diameter than the stock shaft (and thus less hydrodynamic drag in the water), and also that I can build the shaft to custom lengths -- including extra length, if necessary.  

I am also in the very early stages of being a Tarsacci dealer, and so if you are interested in buying an MDT-8000, and would like to work with me on the sale, please contact me...

THANKS!

Steve

      I am in a spot i have gone over at least 5 times with the ORX, and the ground went silent. Dont think I dont like the ORX, when i go to the park and sports field you cant beat it .But like i say when i got to the site today I took some advice from a guy who said put the Disc at between 27-and 30  so i set it at 29 and i just was amazed that the ground just lit up . things at 9 inches no problem good signals and deeper . my settings used are .  6.4 khz in mix mode, gain of 7 and 0 threshold, black sand mode on and salt balance at 43,  and this machine just starts devouring the ground ,  I spent my stimulus money on it and dont regret doing so as its made in U,S,A and it went to help an American citizen.   the thing with holes in it was 18 inches deep and i left more in the hole. i was tired of digging deep holes for the day . and i forgot to say i was not digging as many nail false s. so what that guy said must be working

      What settings does everyone else use under the big electrical wires.  The tarsacci wasn’t bad with interference as the deus was in the same area.  But I put the black sand on to get it to quiet down some. Would I be missing targets with these settings?

      Got back to the old homestead i have been hunting, and by far the thing i find the most of is shot gun shells, in fact i found a cash of of them buried about 9" deep , I think a red squirrel buried them  must have been 15 of them , but today I went over the same spot the ORX went over and just kept finding targets, . I keep digging some nails, because i find so few good targets like silver coins i really do not know the difference from a nail false, and a silver coin so i have dug my share of rug pullers,  but the Indian did have a better sound and higher numbers 14-17 and i found it by rechecking a hole the ORX found one in  I am using 6.5 khz and 7 gain and 0 threshold and it will hit with a good signal in air a dime at 11 inches so its got some power . the Indian looks like someone went after it with a sharp punch of some kind, otherwise it was in extra fine condition

      What i have found out is the Tarsacci out performs my ORX in ground littered with trash, and in depth of detection, I buried a penny only 7 inches deep and the orx could not hit that penny ,du to small bits of iron and other metal in the ground , the Tarsacci pounded that penny, and i have done this test in two different spots, its noticeable very much so . and today i found a spoon at a solid 14 inches deep  . but i would say my ORX is better at i,d, on iron and bottle caps  also today i got a false on a 7" bread tie using the Tarsacci.  but over all the TAR has power and you know it and it delivers

      I’ve been wanting to use the pig tail that comes with my Tarsacci but at the same time I wanted the new Sun Ray Pro Gold headphones to go with it. I just like being able to unplug from my Tarsacci anytime I want. The headphones have a universal plug that the 1/4” screws down over the 1/8” making it two plugs in one so to say. It also has a volume control for each ear that helps me a lot being the hearing in my right ear is not as good as the other.
      If you’re wondering why it’s called a pig tail because it’s short like one.

      One important thing you need to do is anchor the pig tail down to the shaft so not to be pulling directly on it . If you don’t it’s going to take a beating and not last long at all.
       You can see in the picture below how I fixed that .The last picture as you can see is with the headphones plugged in.

      PS The headphones came from Rob’s detectors .
