Not many people know that for the last few years Minelab has been trying to actively stand against manufacturers of aftermarket coils. Are you aware of what the production cost of a plastic coil cover is? Being sold for $20-$25 per unit, this accessory is actually a dime a dozen. And they are always in demand. Plus, coils, repair etc. Well, I think you’ve got it: the coils-accessories-repair business is up there with metal detector sales. 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!
Is anybody interested in how much this cover is being sold for? All content related to 3D printed metal detecting accessories and other things can be found here. It’s possible to 3D print both probes and metal detectors as one piece. Don’t you believe me? See for yourself, and maybe you’ll want to change your miserable branded rod that doesn’t yield finds. It’s time to do it.
