Just bought a metal detector

Recommended Posts

Got a bit bored today so I decided to make a bracket to fit the pinpointer to the detector rather than having it on me and being in the way when bending down, pic's up to the bracket being undercoated :)

Haha will do once I get the gearbox done, just recently had a family crisis and had to use some of the gearbox recon money so once I've got it back I can get it done inc more pic's, looking at after Christmas now though :(

Too bad, but you have to take care of family first. The truck will always be there waiting for you to spend more $ on her! 

Cheers,

I love a bit of detecting myself, that Cscope you have there is a PI detector, they don't really discriminate out iron, so you basically dig everything.

Patience is a necessary 'tool' with these trucks. Mine is on jackstands in the driveway while I wait for rear bearings to finish a rear brake renewal. (The ones I ordered did/would not fit - another story for another time!)

Cheers,

Yeah it's quite annoying when you order the wrong parts, done that a few times :angry:

The ones I ordered were the right ones, but too small to fit into the stub axle without a big hammer. The supplier and I are having a bit of a discussion right now which is not going well for me.
