I got an OLD new toy.
I am the owner of an ML SD2000. Smiley
Looks like that has done a 1000 miles and there are scuff marks on the control box, cracks on the coil, and I couldn’t test it because the battery was dead,
But it was an offer I could NOT refuse. Crazy Crazy
The plan is to replace the old 6V-4.5Amp battery with Li-Ion cells, (I got many CGR18650C out of old laptop batteries) and use it on the beach right on the water line.
I worked out the mode on paper, I need a few parts, and hopefully I will have it up and running with in few days.

A bad day at gold prospecting or metal detecting is better than a good day at work.

Here it is.
the plan is to replace the big brick lead acid battery with the small light weigh Li-Ion,
and be able to get 2-3 hours of detecting time on one charge.

cool   i have sourced a lot of components from china hard to beat the shipping costs they must be subsidized by the gov. I can get parts  in the U.S but shipping but shipping from china is way cheaper sometimes even free. Wink
