April 27 update

Well, decided to start refurbishing the Silver Turtle. The entire enclosure was stripped of all fittings, pots, switches, latches etc. All the silicone seal used was removed and cleaned. Right now its clean inside and out.

Because the enclosure is all plastic unlike the older Tesoros that have a metal box. A piece of copper plate was cut out and will be used as a large ground plane to be attached to the circuit board and adhered to the bottom of the enclosure.

Thanks to Rich, who sent me a excellent working Tesoro Silver with a circuit board that is identical to the Silver Turtles, I can move on to the next stages. Removing the circuit board from the Tesoro Silver, remounting to the ground plane.

Pictures to follow.

I dig it with a Nokta/Makro product.
And then some.. Blisstool V5, White's IDX
