I finally accumulated enough stuff to make it happen.
I know that some will ask why mod older technology. Well it's one of my favorite detectors and I just wanted to make it more ergonomic.
I have more pics but they're too large to post here.
Lastly the parts used are White's surfMaster upper and lower shaft, tallman S rod, Garrett arm cuff.

It's 2 pieces of light weight scrap lumber I had laying around. First I carved the pieces to fit their respective locations. Then drilled a pilot hole to tie them together with a 3" star drive deck screw. Glued them together with titebond III, assembled with the deck screw. Lastly I stained the assembly with Watco exterior stain and 2 coats of polyurethane.
