  1. I habitually save anything that might be useful. This was the connector off a prototype coil I had to destroy so I cut it off and saved it. I have so many extra Equinox coils the chance of me needing this is zero so may as well go to somebody who can use it. Yeah, I’ve left stuff out before a splice... infuriating!
  2. The proper splice and some of that waterproof sealing shrink tube and you will be in business. Put the shrink tube on before you splice!
  3. If you need one I have a cut off extra I can mail you. Would just need your mailing address via PM. Let me know.
  4. It would be easy to make the belt longer. Just need the right size belt clip set and more webbing. Any decent backpack supplier would have them.
  5. Have to wait for JW or whoever measures first. I sold both my 7 lb detectors and I actually am boycotting heavy detectors from here on out, even if that means I use something less powerful. So my harnesses are gone or I’d already have given you a number to work with. But I am sure JW or somebody will put a ruler to work soon.
  6. I agree but unfortunately I have high frequency hearing loss. It’s all about what we can hear and everyone has different ears and different audio processing circuits in their brain. You can have great hearing but still be tone deaf. I had a hearing test recently and my ability to hear sound is identical in both ears, but my ability to comprehend words is lower in my right ear. So my audio processing in my left brain (our brains are cross-wired) is deficient. Interesting stuff.
  7. Interesting that the coil above is a DOD coil same as the Minelab coils. That implies more stability in bad ground than non-DOD solutions. The big question mark that needs answering is the dongle situation - please Minelab, provide Nuggetfinder with the needed parts!
  8. Very late to comment here but here is my two cents. I always use 50 tones but leave it at the default pitch setting. I do lower the ferrous tone volume from 12 to 4 however, which makes ferrous a very low level puttering sound to my ear. I like hearing the ferrous as it alerts me to potential target fields but I don't like getting beat up by it.
  9. Well, I hope I did not nudge you the wrong way! There are no perfect detectors, though these days a person can get close. Things like feel on the arm and audio are very subjective and mean more than most people give those things credit for. Anyway, given your decision do look at this thread and especially the video posted there. The video especially is superb for what you are desiring. Minelab Equinox Tones & Advanced Tone Options and some commentary here about the 50 tones setting may be helpful although in your case 5 tones is probably a better choice as you get more customization.
  10. It would be smart that with this being what the future multifrequency model will be housed in to be designing the circuit board and coils, etc. with an eye towards that future purpose. In other words when designing Simplex I would be designing for SMF with the single frequency model just a step and a test bed along the way. The board may very well be multifrequency capable.
  11. I never bothered with the strut stuff as I was ok without. Anyway, I know a really large guy that used one and his only issue was the waist belt was not long enough, most of the rest has plenty of adjustment but if it won’t fit around your gut not much you can do, so he just left it unhooked at the waist and it actually worked fine. I think you’d have no problem, but at most might have to just put an extension on the waist belt. Easily done with the common plastic buckles and some extra nylon belt.
  12. Excellent condition Garrett Ace 400, maybe 20 hours of use max. Includes never used Garrett Clear Sound headphones, rain cover, and scuff cover. The scuff cover has a hairline crack towards the rear from my clumsily prying it off to clean it for this sale - see photo. Shipped in original box with manual. Uses 4 AA batteries (included).
