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.

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 ??



Deus and Nexus MP.

Mainly hunt deep ploughed and pasture sites,trashy roman/saxon and celtic permissions.

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:

Good info AJ, Recently picked up a Compadre with the Sensitivity and GB mods already done. What was he thinking?, he installed Alpha pots, correct ohms, but they are carbon 3/4 turn units and this makes the unit very erratic. I just got in replacements, two BOURN Rotary Wirewound Precision 10 turn Potentiometers off of ebay for $5.30 shipped to me in 10 days. Great transaction with xiaobao_semi. Here are the numbers..... 10K ohm 3590S-2-103L (sensitivity) .... 100K ohm 3590S-2-104L (ground balance)

Now .... back to make the replacement installs.

thanks Don

how does the 10 turn do on the sens ? might give it a try with a GB as well on one of my other comps, they both fit in ok?

thanks for the part numbers.

From Sven's notes the Bourn 10 turn pots are the best. I have yet to install them to give them a field test. I have seen a photo of one of these pots (Sens.) placed in the control box lower right corner, I can't vouch for anymore accommodating space. My Compadre innards have been re-installed in a waterproof Pelican case so my layout is totally different.
