  1. I’m surprised I have not seen much chatter on this mod but it seems pretty well done. He has same mod for the Vanquish and maybe the CTX https://m.facebook.com/Sea-Ghost-101743838386442/ Not something I’d do under warranty but maybe after warranty was up? Or buy a $200 Vanquish or used one and this kit? I think the kits are under $300 and I think that includes the headphones? Heck the waterproof headphones are half that price. Wish I knew Russian...
  2. Does anyone have the dimensions for the control box of the Fisher CZ-3D or the Fisher M-66 Valve and Box Locator? I'm looking for a dust rain cover for the Gold Bug 2 and since they don't make the dust cover anymore for he gb2 I'm looking for an alternate solution other than custom making one. It looks like the CZ-3D or the M-66 could be similar dimensions with the GB2 but don't know. Then again I can't find a dust cover for either of them either, geez! The Gold Bug 2 control box is: 5" Deep x 3" High x 4.5" Wide Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
  3. Well I have now gone through a second GPZ stock coil cover. Has anyone tried out the Nugget Finder coil cover for the 14x13 and if so how have you liked it? I am either looking at one of these or somehow modifying my stock cover to extend the life. If the stock covers were only $10 I could justify the reoccurring cost but at almost $50 ..not really. Thanks
  4. Well, I have been getting in the hours and have wore out my GPZ 7000 scuff cover / coil cover / skidplate. New genuine Minelab covers are like everything else GPZ rare as hen's teeth. Part number 3011-0286 and very few places on the internet can be found that advertise having them in stock. $62 retail, and Ft. Bedford claims to have them in stock for $48 http://www.fortbedfordmetaldetectors.com/minelab-gpz7000-14x13-coil-cover Miner John has an aftermarket coil at http://razorbackcoils.webs.com/apps/webstore/products/show/5908106 that Chris alerted us to back in May http://www.detectorpros
  5. good morning and happy new year to all!! I'm sure this question has been asked many times in the past, but I was hoping someone could refresh mu memory. I'm currently swinging a gpx 5000 with a commander 15 x 12 mono coil -- ( old school). I wear out the covers a lot and have had problems getting new ones recently---so question is whats the best way to get the most from my covers??? I 've heard truck beeding stuff works good --- make a new bottom from fiberglass --- or ???? Thanks all good luck Marc
  6. Wanted to give the Multi Kruzer a go with the Superfly coil at the beach. Kept the machine in 5khz, manual ground balance as it would drift with tracking on. Was a little bit noisier in spots compared to the stock but on the damn and dry sand it had excellent depth with very stable numbers. Gain was kept around 93 without issue even in the wet. One thing I didn't like is if I got any water behind the scuff it would false a bit but outside of that its a good combo. Managed to sneak out a Barber dime at 10" in the damp sand in my my 3 hour run, called it a day when I broke my scoop han
  7. How can I prevent my headphone jack from further corrosion? A little back story. I'm submerging my equinox 800 about 2-3 times per week in saltwater (Florida gulf coast). Purchased the LS PELSO headphones October 11th (1 week shipping) and as you can see they have already started to corrode. I don't take the headphones out and wash the jack EVERYTIME. (Trying to avoid this) Please leave a comment, let me know what you do, and what you think will work for me! Thanks
  8. Is anyone hunting without a coil cover? If so, how is it holding up? There has been some talk over on the FT forum about how the Impulse AQ coil is so tough that it doesn't need a coil cover. I wonder if Minelab coils are just as strong. I've gone through a few coil covers in my day but they are made of soft plastic. The coil itself is hard epoxy. Are covers really necessary? I've always just accepted that they are, but now I'm questioning it.
  9. Hey guys I just got my new SDC last week. I see a lot of folks on youtube using a cover for the control box portion of the metal detector. Is this something any of you guys use? If so, can you recommend a particular one? Thanks! PS, I plan on taking this detector with me backpacking.
  10. hi Just bought my first detector, the NOX 800....Im sure will have a ton of questions at some point. We do a lot of traveling and wanted to get a hard case for it. Any suggestions? thanks Richard
  11. Well out of the blue Doc or Doc's Detecting Supply of Las Vegas sent me a goodie bag with some product to look over. Thanks Doc! Before I begin I want you to know I did not request this stuff. In order to not look like I am trading favorable comments for gear I am going to use this stuff as prizes in various forum contests I have planned (best finds, etc.). All these goodies Doc sent me will be finding new homes in the near future so stay tuned. I already have a few of Doc's products. I have one of his original Swingy Thingy support harnesses from over ten years ago. I don't use it per se
  12. I just got a new equinox 800 and M trying to find a good Carrying case for it anybody have any good ideas
  13. Hello All I wanted to share another case solution. This is a Plano gun case that I purchased from Amazon Canada. Nice case for $100. It took a little time to pick out all of the plugs but at least all of the parts have a place now. The left over plugs will be good for padding other stuff too so I'm saving them for now. Edit: I just realized that there is not much room for headphones but I don't use them and I'll probably go with ear buds if I ever do. My main concern was providing as much protection as possible to the gear in case I fly with the case. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/pr
  14. Broke my Nox arm cuff the other day. I got ahold of a new one and modified it so it is now stronger than ever. I took a piece of 4 inch PVC pipe, ( just the right width! ), cut it to the width of the cuff and just below where the strap openings are. Did a little sanding to "round" off the edges and attached it with industrial 3M two face tape to the cuff. Then put the black cushion rubber on top. I have used it about 6 hours now of constant swinging and it is rock solid. $1.98 for the PVC and a little modification. We'll see how it holds up.
  15. With going to a sporting goods store , or before , looking a hard case , will need to do checked baggage for plane trip ?
  16. Dean Ricker has screen covers available for the Simplex. I've been using his covers for quite some time, excellent quality. I paid $25 shipped. Here is Dean's e-mail addy where he can be contacted..... rickerskpd@cableone.net
  17. I've read a number of threads on the best way to cover and protect the coil and there's been a lot of good ideas for sure! I thought I'd add mine for those who primarily hunt sandy beaches like I do. Over the years, I've tried several ways to keep sand out since a build up between the coil and cover could and will result in a degree of false signals/chatter. What I finally determined was that sand is the "cleverest" of all elements with which I've had to contend. It can and does get into everything. No matter how well I thought I'd sealed the cover onto the coil, sand still managed
  18. Still no accessories page, so I'm wondering what owners are using for a soft, padded carry bag for their Eqs. Most padded bags I've seen aren't wide enough to accommodate the control pod. Any ideas?
  19. Published on May 8, 2019. Detecting veteran and reality TV star Tim Saylor tackles the question of traveling with metal detectors. How does he pack his detector, pinpointer and shovel when he flies overseas?
  20. I picked these up this past week for my Equinox from E-bay for $5.99 for a pack of 3. The size is perfect for the Nox, simply cut to fit and a great way to add extra protection to the entire face of the 800 or 600. I've been using the Invisible-Shields for the last 3 years, they work like a champ, almost completely scratch proof. These are a very inexpensive way to save your screen and touchpad from getting jacked up. I thought I'd pass this along.
  21. With the purchase of my new Minelab Equinox 600 (waiting for my 800 on backorder) I set out to find some needed but harder to find accessories. I made this YouTube video of the Deanos cover, which as far as I can tell is the Only United States based manufacturer and seller of protective covers for the Minelab Equinox 600 / 800 control box. I love this cover, very nicely constructed, heavy duty, and fits very tightly on the control box to it is highly unlikely you will get dirt, sand, or any other debris up under the cover and risk scratching your nice new screen/faceplate.
  22. I'm not much for carry bags for metal detectors but I figured it would be really nice just to throw the Gold Monster in the truck and take off instead of wrapping it up like a precious cargo to head to the desert. I found a Minelab Excalibur bag on eBay and I figured it was big enough and said what the heck and bought it. I'm pretty happy with the way it worked out. And yes that is the new Doc's Gold Monster cover and arm cuff that is the cats meow when it comes to protection for this machine.
  23. This has been a long time coming. All of these items are now in stock and available. (They just cleared customs Friday) You can usually purchase them through Ebay or your local Minelab dealer. New Cover Sets for Minelab Equinox and Gold Monster 1000. And new Qweegle™ Double adjustment point bungee made with highest quality extreme grade Marine Bungee. I had announced these products before as I was getting various prototypes, but the entire production run is now in my hands as of Friday when they were released from customs. While the Qweegle ™ is available by itsel
  24. Tnsharpshooter, I was thinking about what you said relating to the buttons on the control pad needing some more protection to reduce wear, something that I agree with. I wonder if a couple of layers of a clear nail polish, only over the buttons, would help? Nail polish is quite strong while still somewhat flexible. ~Just wondering
