OK so i've been struggling along with the coil attached to a bit of wood, but it keeps coming loose. So is there anywhere i can get a plastic moulded piece for mounting a coil on? I've not had much luck online finding one.

Thanks

James

A photo or two might help people to visualise your problem.

I assume you have broken the coil attachment where the bolt goes through the bottom of the shaft. Is that correct ?

What coil and what machine are you chasing it for ?


If it wasn`t for bad luck , i would have no luck at all.

Coiltek have a piece that will glue into the normal bottom shaft if you brake it
the other photo is what i do to strengthen the shaft, its a piece of 19mm drip hose heat it in hot water open a vice so your shaft just slides between the jaws of the vice with the 19mm soft it will slide over the shaft

Minelab dealers should be able to get them if they don't stock them. Minelab part no. 8007-0010.
The Minelab ones will probably cost about the same as a full Coiltek 700mm lower shaft though.

Maybe I am reading it wrong but my guess is Marauder is looking for the bracket in the middle of the top of the coil???? The bit the shaft attaches to. At present he may have glued a block of wood to it?

Be good if you came back to clarify James thumbsup

If it's the coil ears that are broken then you need to repair with some epoxy type plastic stuff:

Or if you can find a plastic bracket that suits or know someone with a 3D printer to get a new set made, cut the old ears off & Araldite replacement onto coil.

Yeah guys I'm after the bit on the end of the shaft that bolts onto the coil. basically mine at the moment is a bit of wood with a hole in it, and it gets loose too easily.

The thing "old hand" has above is what i'm after.

Marauder, most of the Prospecting/detector sales places will carry those lower stems.
