Mark, thanks for the plug.This issue is an ongoing thing with Minelab. Nobody should have to buy coil ear stiffeners. Happened to me with the X Terra. Now I'm always worried it's going to happen with my Equinox.
Thanks the method I used has worked flawlessly on two coils it’s really a easy fix.Mark, thanks for the plug.
dfmike, if you trust me with your coil, I can make them for anything, below is the eureka gold, yes minelab has a problem. To get the most strength you first need to build up the broken ears, I did not have the correct plastic in my plastic welding kit, but it seems the cap to a ball point pen worked well, and a dremmel tool to keep the shape
I'm surprised that Coiltek doesn't make them better. They should take example on some third party coil manufacturers. I have a few coils for my Fisher and Teknetics detectors that have a design that will never break unless I smash them against a tree with brute force !I should also add that if you plan on buying the coilteck for the nox, it too is very flimsy, even more so than the stock coils. I sell those on fleebay as well.
Use the one I used he makes them both for 6” and 11” they are a perfect fit almost snap in and the ears are super wide beefed up.But there are so many of these stiffeners online... Which ones actually work ? I'd hate to have the coil ears on my 6" DD Equinox coil break before one year of ownership.
