New ATX Coils.
« on: May 20, 2017, 10:24 »
For the asking price of these coils I would have expected a coil cover/skidplate to be included . . .  . well there is not ! ! !

In order to protect this investment one was made before use.

Also the weight was of concern so a new shaft was made that make it usable with the equally heavy control housing chest mounted.

All is now quite manageable and definitely better than a troublesome arm/shoulder/back. :D

Ivan. This looks good. Where did you get the extendable shafts from? Thanks Steve.

Complete shaft made for another detector (no longer in use) years ago.

Used upper shaft and a new bottom shaft made to fit new ATX coil tube.
