To all Garrett AT MAX, AT PRO, AT GOLD owners (+ ACE ones)

It’s an open secret that the Garrett AT MAX housing is an absolutely exact copy of the Garrett AT PRO and Garrett AT Gold. So it means that problems with mounting the detector control box on its shaft have moved to the new machine as well. Here’s a simple solution for how to prevent a situation when the plastic housing may crack and fall off the shaft. This problem also often occurs to all Garrett ACE owners, including those who have new modifications. Keep in mind this option, maybe it will come in useful with other machines too (not only made by Garrett). Continue reading

The only thing is that Minelab has been fighting against the wrong entities. Now everyone can do a coil or a metal detecting accessory himself. And the most unpleasant thing for the original manufacturer is that homemade parts often look much better than the branded ones. Let’s take a look at such an example: a cool coil cover for the Minelab Go-Find machine. By the way, this one has been already mass produced and gone on sale. Hello Minelab! Continue reading
