Detector stand

Post by meadowman » Sun Dec 03, 2017 6:39 pm

Hi guys, after reading about homemade stands, came up with this. One jubilee clip and one coat hanger. The hanger is plastic but wire or wood will do.

Hello 'meadowman' ::g The principle is fine but I doubt it will prove very practical in the field as the weak link would appear to be the flimsy coat hangar. I 'm sure your MkII model will prove more effective.

I'm a great believer in going down the DIY route ::g it often offers a practical and convenient solution to a problem. Financial savings, if there are any, are secondary to the success of the project. :D All the best and Good Luck. Regards ss47

I've got a dues / 3030 and manage 99% of time to dig / Recover stuff with it still strapped to my arm. It's practice
