Compadre 3D Mod

Had some time off and it's been raining a bunch so I decided to tinker with the compadre.
Thanks to Bleaver for posting the schematic and providing some fine tuning tips.
I know we have to dig trash to find gold but this is a very handy mod for quickly classifying targets.
I used a on-on-on switch instead of the momentary-on-momentary.
The trimmer pots are Bourns 25 turn 100k.
Works like a champ and is a little quicker than moving disc control for id.
Here's a video link showing it on some surface targets in the yard.

Nice video. Videos are not in my wheel house so I appreciate yours.

I got the idea for the 3D mod from my Troy X5. Your mod seems to work just as it should so kudos to you.

That's my first attempt at any video so thanks.
Amazing what phones are capable of these days.
Gonna try to do one on my waterproof Compadre next.

Took your advice and adjusted the zincs to break up on the upper setting.
Dug a ton of them at a park yesterday.
Thanks again for the info and advice.
