Found this old thread. I'm planning to get this old sword working again and many thanks to OBN for the end caps for the pinpoint mod.
A couple of corrections - yes it did originally have the sword decal.
And per Minelab the transformer coils in the original headphones were not being used to step up the audio.
They were there to limit audio/voltage spikes, which is exactly what the capacitor/resistor combo does nowadays.
Since this post was made the original pod tube grew more cracks. Just sitting in storage.
I will have to either replace the pod of glass over the little "windows" that I had originally made.
And, since one of the cracks goes to the end of the pod, it will have to be sealed with Methylene Chloride - may or may not work.
Two features that helped the performance was one, adding the flat along where the knobs run. This made a platform to support an additional Oring compressed under each knob - a sand seal.
Second was the bar style knob guard- really nice compared to the Anderson guard which is a pain (for me).
Hopefully a new pod will appear soon or else a new round of repairs will begin. It's diving days are over for sure.
