Detector unbalanced? No problem! smiling smiley

February 29, 2020 01:33PM
Made a quick prototype of a counter balance for a Teknetics G2+. As received, it hung straight down when held under the control box with one finger. Even though very light at (spec'd) 2.5 lbs. bad balance puts a strain on the arm. (Ask anyone my age sad smiley ).

It now balances perfectly and the overall weight is 3lbs. 11oz., still lighter than the 4 lb. machines. Simply moved the arm cuff up a notch, inserted a wooden dowel that hangs out 6", and screwed fishing weights on the back end.
