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? It obviously had one thing missing, which is a search coil made from the stand for an electric kettle… Hold off on laughing, maybe you will cry later. 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

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. And it’s impossible, much less just by looking at a picture, to distinguish at once between the fake and original unit. 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

Minelab Equinox Coil X-Ray. Is it really the half of machine?

Minelab called their Equinox coils ‘smart’, and basically these ones stand for the half of the detector itself. I need hardly say that such coil will cost a considerable amount, and you shouldn’t be surprised… It’s interesting, of course, what Minelab are saying but the truth can’t be hidden anyway. I just want to ask, “Really, are you serious about that, Minelab?” So let’s take a look at the cool pictures: an x-ray coil for the new Minelab Equinox. Continue reading

Coils under X-Ray. Has somebody run out of tin? ))

Does a coil have a booster inside or not? Only the good old X-ray can give the most accurate answer to this question. How exciting it is to look at these radiographs! Some manufacturers don’t even try to solder the wires inside the coil – they connect these ones by twisting them together (no one can see it anyway). Or maybe they are simply run out of tin?

Makro Multi Kruzer & MarsMD shaft. Improvement

Here’s an idea… You can buy the detector’s control box only, having your own rest of parts or using the alternative options. Doing so, you save up to 3 times its price! The Makro Multi Kruzer, Makro Kruzer and Makro Gold Kruzer housings can be mounted on the MarsMD shaft. And it’s up to you to decide whether such a solution is better or not. Take a look at the photos: Continue reading
