Minelab FBS 8" coil diameter.


Well-known member
I was wondering if someone could post a picture of the Minelab 8" coil with a tape measure on it to confirm the actual size. I sold one that didn't have a Minelab label on it and the person is concerned it isn't a Minelab product because of the size. He thinks the size should be 8.25" not 7.5" Thanks.

I took the coil cover off and the Minelab 800 coil is closer to 7.5 inch.

Dan, I believe that is correct. I have looked for mine and can’t find it - haven’t used my Exp II in a real long time.
I do remember having that same question when I got my machine, they round up the numbers.
If I do find it I will measure it.
