New MINELAB mod


Recommended Posts

Well, that got ya in here!

We have all had it happen. Work all day on a patch or wash and were dog tired.

Time to go back to camp. HOW did the old ML get so heavy? It now weighs 40lbs.

So we hoist it up on our sholder and start back. About every 30 feet its cutting into the sholder and we keep going back and forth.

Dont dispare...............for 49.99 I have a solution.

The NEW! MLpainintheneck, relief pad!!!!!

But wait...............if you order now, I can send you two for only 50 bucks and 75 in shipping and handling!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok....Just go down to your local dollar store or wallmart and get one of them thingys that kids beat on each other in the pools with.

Cut off what you need, cut a slit so if fits over the shaft and tape it on.

I sanded the bottom down a bit so its flat.

Mine is perfectly balenced where I put it. Hardly have to hold it.

Hope this helps

That pool-beater thingy is good for one more mod which I really like.

If you cut a piece of the tubing the length of the detector box

and then cut a strip out of the tube wide enough to allow you

to use the larger piece thats left as a cushion pad for the box.

Tuck it into your box cover on the bottom side of the detector,

you have a nice little pad with the cut sides acting as legs.

Anyway the point is, if you set the box down on hard ground or it gets bumped,

it protects the bottom of the box from shock.

This is a rather sad rendition of the idea...

Tom,

It was a handle I took when I was playing online shoot 'um up's with my son

while I was away from home working.

We would get online together, team up and chat as we blasted the bad guys.

It just sort of stuck.

Probably should change over to a more 'adult' name but never quite got around to it.

All the best,

Good idea Tom, but like Pete said put foam or some other sort of cushioned pads on top of both your shoulders sewn-stiched into your clothing. That way you can rest either your metal detector shaft or digging pick on your shoulder.

And yes Flak, it is a good idea to put foam underneath the detector control housing box(installed between the housing and cover) to protect it from shock while setting it down on the ground. Just make sure it is installed properly so it does not tip over and fall on is side.

In Victoria, Australia back in 1989 I went detecting with a fellow(Bob White, manager of the Elm Motel in Bendigo) put very dense thin foam, about 1/4" to 1/2", like roll-up backpacking bed matt. Wrapped almost completely all the way around his Minelab GT-16000 to protect it and prevent damage from bumps and shocks. I was using the Fisher Gold Bug at the time.
