Re: If you were to help design a new metal detector - - - -

- - - and you were asked to describe the following to the manufacturer and design engineers,

Q #1: What size, shape and type of search coil would you want to be 'standard'?

Q #2: If you could suggest only two accessory search coils, what size, shape and type would they be?

Q #3: What color would you want the search coils to be?

#1-- an 8" coil would be ok for most detectors that I use.

#2-- for the accessory coils, a 5" and an 11" round and concentric, with the mounting ears in the middle of the coil.

#3-- coil color white or light grey.

Now with that said, I wish the detector manufacturers would sell their new detectors and leave the coil choice up to the customer, so the customer gets exactly what they want.

Back in the late 60's - early 70's I think D-TEX metal detectors (Bill Mahan) offered their detectors that way, buy the detector and then you pick a primary coil to go with it. anyway, just a thought.
