Nugget finder coils Empty Nugget finder coils

Someone told me in this forum that you can unplug and leave the coil lead on shaft so swap coil from
Nugget finder to commander Minelab coil with out time consumingly
Taking off The shaft cable. But my nugget finder don't seem to budge coil
End now it has a little gape that I hope won't let water in.

I wish if people don't know they don't say.

Anyone got ideas to seel my nugget finder coil cable end
Prefect it's ok but not perfect as I pulled at it to unplug on someone's advise here.
It's in my post outs.

So annoying. It's only out by a mm or 2 or 3 mm.
Not the piont water could get in possibly now thanks to wrong advice.
I repeat if you don't know, you don't know no need to guess cause people
Take people's advice here on board.

I could say WTF, but I won't. If in doubt don't do it. etc etc. Thats why the coils come with a plug on the end of the cable, etc etc.

My only advice is to send it back to Rohan at Nugget Finder and get him to fix it, because if water gets in its one buggered coil, and it won't need much water to acheive this.

Gday

I cant understand anyone telling you that the wire can be removed from the coil, this has never been the case and as you have found out will damage it, sometimes information given can be misenterpreted as well so if you are not sure what has been said ask the question again.

Possibly what was meant was that the coil stays on the shaft, the top of the cable is unplugged from the control box, and the replacement coil mounted the same way on its own shaft, is re fitted to the top shaft and then plugged back into the control box, having your coils on their own shafts saves time when swapping over coils when you want a change.

If the coil is still working ok then you may be able to gently push the cable back into the hole where it comes out from, and then seal it up with some neutral clear silicone, put something on it to hold it in place and leave it for 24 hrs to dry before using it, failing that then send it back to Nuggetfinder and have them take a look at it.

cheers
