Having the interest, and knowledge, to fix some of the good detectors from long ago an keep them alive. Too many times some of those older and non-functioning units still look really nice, but just quit working. Lucky if it's only dirty contacts from a corroded battery, but often it is some of those dated analog components or a bad switch, and if they take up too much closet space, they get discarded with the trash.sad smiley

Most folks in the hobby these days don't even know what a 'VLF / TR-Disc.' model description means, nor know how to work those TR-Disc. models to maintain a consistent Threshold, once Tuned, by controlling the coil-to-ground orientation. And for sure a lot wouldn't even look twice at a detector that didn't have an over-size search coil or marketing that claims they 'Go Deep!'

I remember using both a Bobcat and a Lynx I borrowed, but never owned one. You have a very great-condition, early-day specimen. I have a very nice-looking, and simple, Garrett American S2 TR-Disc. model like I used a lot in '81 to '83, but it needs attention because the auto-tune isn't working. Release the handle push-button and it quickly increases and isn't workable. Now that I am here in Texas I plan to make the 2½-3 hour drive over to their place in Garland and see if they might be able to work some magic on it.

Best of success when you take it afield. I'll be watching for your remarks afterwards, and 'Thank You' for your 'healing powers'
