  1. I’m looking for an after market COIL SUPPORT for a COILTEK 10X5 EQUINOX coil…. I just finally bit the bullet and found one…. I’d like to put a coil support on this coil to hopefully not break the tabs too soon on it…. Does anyone know where a coil support for this coil can be obtained ? ? ?………thanks …..Al
  2. Ok...now that I’ve taken this ProFind 35 out 4 times, is there a way to INCREASE the volume on it? ? ? I can barely hear it.... I’ve looked at the paper that came with it and looked at the skimpy manual online, but neither says word one about how to turn up the volume.... anyone got any suggestions/ ideas on how to get it done ? ? ? ....Al
  3. I ordered the MINELAB ProFind 35 and got it this last Monday and have taken it out twice...... all in al, in all, it’s ok.... still gettin use to it....... at this point, to me, it seems the Garret Carrot AT is easier to use.... but time will tell......... Al
  4. No offense meant by my comment about doofus..... I was talking about me being the doofus.... sometimes I can’t see outta one eye or look outta the other.... never mind how many times I clean my glasses.... Al
  5. I can only think of 2 things that might cause this delima....do you have a screen protector on it.... I do and have NO problems with the screen.... the 2nd would possibly be a defective screen.... the only REAL problem is with the “ dufas “ looking at the screen....you might wanna try a screen protector, or if you have one on it, try replacing it with a new one....Al
  6. I’m considering getting a new pinpointer......every manufacturer claims “ theirs “ is the best.... what are your opinions ? ? ?
  7. Before I got a compatible set of wireless headphones, I paired my hearing aids to my NOX, but found it drained the batteries on the hearing aids quickly (. about a half hour )... the Apple earbuds may have the same problem.... Al
  8. Since I put the 15 inch coil on my 800, I’ve noticed the balance is now NOSE HEAVY....is there a fix to balance it out...ie not be so NOSE HEAVY....??
  9. I’m still checking the 15 out... I’ve put it on my 800 .... I’ve noticed the added weight and become tired more quickly.... and the balance is off.... I’ll figure out something on the balance issue.... Al
  10. I’ve taken the 15 inch out several times now, but the beaches here have been WELL picked over.... been to several parks with it, but haven’t made up my mind about it.... will try it again later in the year when more ppl start going to the beaches.....
  11. I’m wondering which Equinox ( 600 or 800 ) would be the better for my use for what I do here in So Calif... mostly Beaches....any thoughts ? ?
  12. Yeah....there is a "passel" of detectorists here.... fortunately, we haven't heard up on each other.... yet... Al
