Minelab Equinox shaft adapter. Another shaft

Not everybody likes the Minelab Equinox shaft – some aspect of its design is flawed. The owners complain about their arms getting tired too quickly and about the low-quality camlocks (the latter aren’t locking tight enough, thus there is a play in the shaft). But hereby you just can’t up and change your Minelab Equinox shaft. First, which item will you replace it with? Second, even if you select an appropriate option, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be able to mount your detector’s housing on it. However, there is a very simple, inexpensive and preserving your warranty rights, solution – to use an adapter. Continue reading

Minelab Equinox Waterproof Connector (adapter at low price)

Everyone has been aware of the fact the Minelab Equinox waterproof headphones connector doesn’t fit into any socket on other Minelab devices.

Minelab Equinox 600-800 Protective Screen Cover

Minelab doesn’t offer protective screen covers for its new Equinox 600 and Equinox 800 detectors. First, the machines are waterproof and thus are inherently protected against dirt and dust. Second, each unit comes supplied with nearly 30 pieces of screen protectors – so you can stick the new one each time when going out detecting, and it will last you 3 or 4 years. Ain’t that right? And third, there is an old Australian proverb: we are the ones who make metal detectors but the ones who will sew the protective covers for us are… French )) Continue reading
