I picked this nice unit up CHEAP and she works like Jack the Bear. Always heard these
LED screens went bad. I got real lucky! Anyway, looking to do away with the clips that
always go south after awhile. If anyone out there has a good mod. and details on how to
do away with the 14 AA's I would deeply appreciate it as I'm not a big fan of the clip system
for batteries in these "OL TEKS". Was thinking of doing the same on my Mark 1 LTD. but
I'm going to leave it in it's original stock new condition. Thanks for any help in this matter.
Love Vintage machines that just work as good as some of the NEW out there!!!

5 x 18650's battery's fully charged is 21 volts the same as 14 x 1.5volt AA battery's .

I have no idea even what that detector is but I know the battery's work I use them in all my 12 volt or 8 x AA battery detectors.

check them out just do a google search if you are interested and have any questions just ask away.


Not buying another detector until someone makes a dedicated park gold detector with 100 points in the gold range, sick of the same old same old, I need something to met my detecting needs and NO one makes what I need.
anyone can find silver its a sitting duck I have more than enough of those duck hunters, so my pocket book stays closed until someone see's the future of detecting.

if you are out there I can let you know what I need..

Gold Racer
Compadre 7" Concentric
Compadre coil change out mod+sens

Upside Down

World Turned Upside Down

Ghost Story

"Long Live The Chief"

More coils than any sane person would need.

Machines are not in order of preference !! I can't read big blocks of writing , so the enter key is a good tool.

I share my experience of my detecting both the good and not so good both on and off the field, not here to keep everyone happy, just share my experience! if it helps someone that's great, if not that's great too--- so take what you need and leave the rest !
