    Back to the.... ATX

    Cables ok so far! But super careful with it. I have a few spare coils from my old machines in various states of repair as backups. Atx is just simple - and works well under water. Still keen to pickup the small infinium DD coils just in case.

    Back to the.... ATX

    Here are hunts 5 and 6 - well the gold from those hunts anyway. Underwater cut is starting to close but managed to sneak these out with small “high lows” Hunts 5 and 6 - two different locations, both in 2-3metres of water. Have found the best headphones for the atx (ditch the blue ones -...

    Back to the.... ATX

    Here’s the background - sorry for the incorrect chronological order! ** Hi guys - I owned one of the first ATX units (actually 2 of them) and suffered from the coil cable issues. Despite that, these machines produced 100+ gold rings for me (in the space of 1 year). Garrett was awesome and...

    And the next day.....after buying a “new to me” used ATX.....( had two of these before and moved to equinox / other machines) - now rekindling efforts —————- So it seems the “new for me” ATX gels with me well - probably the hundreds of hours with it back in 2014! Blessed with some more luck...

    Back to the.... ATX

    Ok, so, I don’t think I could have made this up if I tried! Decided to go for another water hunt today, ATX charged and not expecting a great deal as has been ‘slim pickings’ lately - especially with the CTX / Nox / Excal. Found a spot in the water, I have walked over hundreds of times in the...

    Driving the Xcal Piezo speakers from standard source - HELP?

    8 inch mono disection!

    Hi Guys I had a faulty 8 inch mono coil - it looked 'perfect' but constantly falses. Cutting the coil wiring, and rewiring made zero, decided to dissect the coil! Well, actually using a hammer! It turns out the coil really cannot be 'repaired'. Seems there are two...
