DIY Carbon Minelab Equinox Shaft

The idea of a metal detector initially consisting of a control box only and having the rest of parts of its owner’s own preferences arises more and more often. That’s the way it is going to be in the future – you’ll purchase a control box, shaft and coil separately. Here’s an interesting option of a carbon shaft for the Minelab Equinox 600 and Minelab Equinox 800 machines: made with one’s own hands, easy to assemble, no special tools or skills needed. Not at an ultra low cost but not higher than the carbon itself.
