  1. Hi, KurtInRI I routed the cable inside the shaft of my waterproof ETRAC. please find some pictures following the link, I hope it is self-explanatory. (I used original etrac shaft and DIY 3d printed parts) https://www.instagram.com/p/CGdjIKQH2PF/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link https://www.instagram.com/p/ByjjDMTiYKl/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link https://www.instagram.com/p/Bo05-2XBEYf/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link https://www.instagram.com/p/BklKAN6AcMb/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link https://www.instagram.com/p/BiBYMPIFZx6/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  2. I am using TDI BH under water for a couple of years now. 1,5 years back the could leaked, so I got a replacement of complete detector. Future plan is to do some serious waterproofing:
  3. Hello Joe, great job. Plastic head ip68 pushbuttons are not so good quality. You definitively have to check this one: Switchcraft Series 913 Sealed Push Button Switch. It is IP68 rated when mounted on a panel. It has a great built quality and a rubber boot to seal the momentary switch. Ibhave used these in my etrac build back in 2015....
  4. This eq mod is not really for diving, but you can easily take it 10m deep. Headphones a pretty loud.
  5. Bad news, S.g.diver. water is inside, so you really have to check the circuit board carefully to see any damage. One of my whites TDIBH went to the service and was change by new tdi past summer. No water inside, but unstable threshold and falsing... Suspected coil leakage. These machines turned to be rare nowadays, at least my dealer got rid of all whites products due to Whites shutdown.
  6. It is nearly impossible to get one TDI pro in Europe, Joe. A part looks like TDI pro would give little benefit to these who hunt snorkeling or wading, because even TDI SL reacts quite much on the surf, so you have to crank up pulse delay to get rid of false signals.
  7. Thanks for info. It's boyant, I know. I counterweight it rather than open. Don't like to modify coils.... The mod was not done by me, by the way. But yes, mainly because of me.
  8. Speaking on 8" detech coil. Any problems with water leaking inside of the coil housing? I have mine somewhere. Not tested yet. Waiting for new fancy TDI like this one:
  9. Here is one i bought not long ago. Telescopic rod is a good compact solution then you don't do a waterhunt. This one will be done in salt water in just a couple of hunts....
  10. The charging and USB connection is done via headphone connection (using some extra pins). New battery is roughly twice the capacity of the original one.
  11. I am Ukraine born, but currently located in EU. Unfortunately the EQ kit is not DIY type of product, so you have to ship your detector to Ukraine. Ones the modificación is ready you are getting back ready to use equinox along with a charging cable, waterproof headphones and the grip. There is the same story happen with vanquish: you have to ship it. There are some soldering to be done, thus kit is not suitable for self installation. Although some older housings (explorer/etrac series) were suitable for DIY assembly. Different installation variants are available. Here is my EQ600 (pot is made by seaghost, the rest is done by me):
  12. I own a couple of these modified equinoxes. The acrylic housing looks and feels just great. Feel free to ask your questions. Here you have some close up photos:
