How to make a coil from electric kettle stand. It works!

Do you remember the hellish ACE machine that a real hoard was discovered by?

So, if it’s possible to make a metal detector coil literally from trash, what do you pay your $150 or $200 for? Some people even have the hots for coils costing $1500. Aren’t they stupid, really? Buy a kettle with a $10 price tag, and you’ll be golden. You don’t know how to make a coil for your machine from a kettle? Look, it’s simple! Continue reading

Minelab Equinox: underwater wireless signal test

Do you believe in miracles? Not many deteсtorists know that all wireless technologies are up against difficulties when working underwater. By way of example, in order to transmit a signal from your heel to your head a submersible XP Deus unit should be used with an antenna that has the same length as the shaft itself. However, this doesn’t mean that the signal will be successfully transmitted, especially through the salt water. And how about the Minelab Equinox? This machine has a new-generation Bluetooth function, capable of reaching up to 100 meters. Won’t it also be able to break through the half-your-height water column? Or it will? Here’s a test of the Minelab Equinox’s wireless connectivity that can be achieved underwater. It’s really interesting! Continue reading

Fake Garrett Pro-Pointer AT. Careful, it doesn’t work!

The owners of fake Garrett Pro-Pointer AT complained that… they hadn’t been about to buy a counterfeit Garrett product – it was sold as authentic, maybe a little bit cheaper. So be careful – fake Garrett devices are mainly not personally handed from a seller to a customer but are pushed when it’s a purchase with a delivery option.

Everything looks similar, the counterfeit probe has even better package appearance. Well, you should know this Chinese approach… And it’s just the minute details because of which you can discern the difference. Half of all fake pinpointers don’t work at all, and even those that are operational fall far short of the authentic product. Moreover, all of them can’t be submerged in water as they leak right on the first submersion (the original is waterproof). Here are the pics (+ what’s inside the fake Garrett Pro-Pointer AT): Continue reading
