just chucking up these pic's if they are of any use. :biggrin:

little bit of help from my friends also thanks guys.

how to do the coil plug mod is easy to find on the net and is right.

just a pic of the sens pot mod if needed and as always do these mods at your own risk.
wires are red , white , yellow from right to left on the pot.

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 !

Thanks for the info. The clear photo makes the mod a cinch. Time to start accumulating parts. I plan on performing the sensitivity, coil connection, and my 3D mod on a Compadre once I find one at a price that makes since to do them on.

Thanks AJ,may try and do this modification this coming weekend,mine had the coil plug mod done all ready as i sometimes use the Compadre control box with the 4'' coil as a pinpoint probe when deep pasture detecting with the TDI Pro,will look on Ebay for the right pot for the conversion.

Thanks again,i assume by doing this mod it just makes the Compadre easier too fine tune ??



These are the main machines that i use on my permissions here in the UK,Deusx2,DFX,IDX Pro,B3,T2,TDI Pro Pulse c/w 20'' Mono,Mirage Pulse,Crossbow Pulse,Nexus SE dual 9'' coil the bad boy,Vaquero,Fisher TW-5 twin box and few others.

that's what I couldn't find a clear photo of what went where wire wise and so thought putting them up might help those like me who are ok to do the work but not sure on what went where.

so glad its been a help :biggrin:

from what I can see Mega its now a Lazer Scout so for me it worked out well under 1/2 the price of buying that detector so am happy and now have the 180 disc and 12 kHz and I can change coils :bouncy: so yeah gives a bit of fine tuning where needed , was going to do a GB and might still but want to test it out more 1st no need doing more work than I need too :jump:

yeah find the pots on ebay. that one is an alpha. let us know how you like it when done Mega.

sounds like a fun project Bleaver let us know how it turns out.

Now toss on a volume trim and a ground and you have the ultimate unit. well almost. lol Unless you decide to install it inside a set of waterproof grayghost headphones with the 11x8 epsilon coil. Then you are in a league all your own. lol :thumbup:
