Hi Phill, you should have mentioned the cable problem in some of our earlier contacts!

Well, I'm sure that cable can be rolled off from a roll somewhere, but I'm not sure if you would be able to actually wire a new piece back inside the coil, you may be able to cut it above the coil and splice it. What I can do if your interested is I have the cable off from a C$ coil, I cut it off from a bad coil and I through the coil away. The jacket seems to be in good shape and if you want it you can have it, just let me Know.

Another thing I've seen done was to take some really GOOD semi wide tape and with some help you can stretch out the cable, run the tape length ways of the cable and just wrap (roll) the cable up in the tape. Its not pretty, its probably not submersible but it works.

I'm thinking that some of the causes of these cable jackets going bad is the use of "Air Purifiers" that also produce Ozone, it seems that as popular as these were just a few years ago that a lot of stuff containing rubber in the house started falling apart.

Hi Mark, did you receive your coil yet, if not you should soon I sent you tracking. I may take that coil wire off your hands this way I will only have one bad spot where connected and the rest of the cable will be normal.

I did get the tracking number you sent, and I checked the status of the shipment Friday and I'm supposed to get the coil this coming Tuesday. I'm having surgery at 10:00am in the morning so when the coil comes I won't be able to use until 'Maybe' next weekend, if I'm lucky (well, blessed with a speedy recovery is a better way to put it)

I did the tape deal on mine and started watching for nice used one and bought it. Then I just set on the taped up coil and somebody posted needing one and I sold it for $35.

No, I've been recovering from my surgery, I probably could have went today but I had a good weather project that I had on hold that I'm going to do today, its supposed to get 53 degrees today.
Both my brothers are going detecting today but I had to pass on the.

I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better. You better get going before winter sets in.
