Folks Desiring Accessories For Equinox

Recommended Posts

A little tid bit here.

Folks desiring accessories for Equinox, should consider getting with dealer and letting them know. If not already done.
It is possible the accessories could be limited in quantities at first like the detector models are currently.  So get in head of line is what I am saying.

Cheers.

High desire for detector models likely= high desire for accessories.

That was one of the first thing I said to my dealer but most know about that as much as I do.Right now I’d be happy just to get the detector. I’d be running over with joy if Minelab would include the 6” coil with my Equinox.

Minelab if you read this I’d eat humble pie if you could do this for me.

I understand.

One reason for my posting what I did.

Folks have eyes on eye candy (detector).  And forget about accessories they need.

How does this sound.  Could it be possible for a person to get accessories before they get detector?? Far fetched ?  Don't think so.

Did that with my dealer already.  Let him know that I wanted to be on the 6” coil and WP headphones “waiting list”.  The whole accessory issue is the next firestorm on the horizon.  While I don’t think ML underestimated demand for the EQ itself, I am thinking they may be underestimating demand for the accessories and that could well turn into something that makes the EQ detector roll out seem like a walk in a coin and jewelry infested park. Hope I am dead wrong.

How does a dealer take orders for items that have no prices and no projected availability dates?

he/she cant per se but if you have a good relationship with your dealer you can tell them I want the first 6",15" coils with 2 extra lower rods as soon as they are available.

He don’t but it’s just wishful thinking!

Thanks for the insight. That’s about all it is right now, but at least my dealer knows it and can throw me a bone when it finally becomes reality.

I’m not knocking you in any way. I know myself I wanted that small coil the same time I got my Equinox but that’s not to be.

Just like I wish I’d been born rich instead of so good looking but that’s life. You got to live with what you’re handed. 

That’s not even funny!

The Best

      Which end of the Nox is the waterproof end? Is it the coil cable end OR the coil receptacle on the back of the controller? Or, are both waterproof? When I rinse my Nox off after a beach hunt I cover both connectors with my thumb so as not to get the pins or the pin receptacles wet. Does anybody know what the thread count is on the connectors? I would like to get a male and a female solid end so as to rinse the Nox off without any possible water problems.
      Thanks for any info on this matter.

      Hey just got an Equinox 800 last week, my first detector.  First of all thanks for all the info, it has really helped me figure out this thing!  So far I've only detected around the house and found a wide range of trash: Nails, stakes, nuts, bolts, old chunks of iron, shell casing, a piece of buckshot, molten aluminum nugget from a bonfire, stainless steel wire, tarp grommet, bottle cap, tin can lid.  Nothing amazing but happy with the results, right now I'm digging everything with a consistent signal to learn, figuring out the Target ID and learning the sounds.  Probably a little tough area to start at, but as soon as I figured out the sensitivity and ground balance, the signals are much clearer, I've been impressed how deep it has found some things.  Also suprised I haven't dug any hot rocks yet, there are a lot of rocks in our driveway that are magnetic and I expected to be having to dig a lot more, but so far haven't dug one.
      Thanks again for all the advice on here, excited to go look for some nuggets and lost stuff.  Really happy with the machine, love the wireless headphones!  Seems hard to beat for an "all-around" type machine.

      Went to a local So. Cal. park this morning, and boy what a workout! I'm not sure the Nox is the right machine for a modern trashy park. In some area's of the park the Nox was sounding off like a machine gun. I tried P1, P2, F1, F2, 5 tone, 50 tone, 0 GB, manual GB, auto GB, recovery at 5, 6, 7 and IB at 3, 4, 5. It seems no matter what I tried, I couldn't get the machine to quiet down. It might just be too much trash. I couldn't keep up with the Noxs' noise. I got tired of trying to distinguish good target sounds from bad target sounds, so after two hours my head couldn't take it anymore so I just gave up and headed home. 
      Anybody got any ideas on the best way to handle this type of park? Or, is it best to just pass it by?
      Thanks in advance for any help in this area.

      Here is a easy way to fix your shaft wobble, even if only temporarily. The male end of the middle shaft just needs a single layer of electrical tape.
      The tolerances on the Minelab shaft are actually pretty tight. If it was any closer you might not be able to get it apart again. Anybody who has swung a Tesoro Knows those twist-locks only work for first assembly, lol
      I've done this before with other machines except I used aluminum tape, time will tell how long the electrical tape will hold out. The tape in the picture has about 15 hours on it, so far it's OK. Besides, it's easy to replace.
      Coincidentally when I took the machine apart for a cleaning and to take this picture, I noticed that Minelab made a similar raised surface on the lower fiberglass rod. The lower rod is so long that a little play really wouldn't translate into as much slop as the upper connection does.

      Now that the six-inch coils have hit the streets has anyone heard of an ETA for the Minelab Equinox 15" Double-D Smart Coils? This is what I'm really looking forward to!
      Thanks!

      Hi all.
      I know I've seen this info before, but I can't seem to find it...
      I currently have an Equinox 800, and am going to buy a 600 as a backup.  I know the 600 has only 4 settings for Iron Bias (instead of 9), and 3 settings for Recovery Speed (instead of 8).  Can anyone remind me what the "equivalents" are between the 600 settings and the 800?

      I THINK I recall that Recovery Speed 1 on the 600 equals 2 on the 800, Speed 2 on the 600 equals 4 on the 800, and speed 3 on the 600 equals 6 on the 800.  Is this correct? 
      Meanwhile, I can't remember how the Iron Bias Settings relate.  I assume 0 on the 600 equals 0 on the 800, and 3 on the 600 equals 9 on the 800?  Would 1 on the 600 equal 3 on the 800, and 2 on the 600 equal 6 on the 800?
      In other words, is this "chart," below, correct?


      Reason I ask is, I know the settings that I prefer on the 800, and I'd like to set the 600 up as close as possible to what I run on the 800.
      Thanks,
      Steve
