detectors repair

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

Minelab Equinox battery doesn’t work (water in battery compartment) +

The proud owner of the Minelab Equinox 600, nicknamed palangsi (dankowskidetectors.com) shared his sad story. His machine battery stopped charging after a few days of use, so he decided to send it in for a warranty repair.

Take a look at the photos: Continue reading

Minelab Equinox improvements (shaft). You think it will help?

Metal detector manufacturers don’t give a toss about your problems. Your arm is getting tired too quickly, and you think the problem lies in the shaft? Not a bit of it! It’s because of your arm that is too long, and we didn’t bargain for its being of not the right size. As a matter of fact, it took Garrett many years to supply their machine with the camlocks. And it’s of no consideration that it’s been a long time since the competitors provided their devices with such locks. And it doesn’t really matter that the shaft of the expensive – costing more than $1,000 back at the time – detector wobbles at each sweep. It’s your purchase, isn’t it? So, from now on that’s your funeral! Let’s take a look at a few improvements for the Minelab Equinox 600/800. In your opinion, might it work for this machine? Continue reading
