Vallon coil removal

Post by gravelmonkey »

Hi fellow Vallon VMH3CS owners!

I can't undo my lower threaded join- the one between the search head and the machine.

Can anyone tell me if it undoes in the same direction as the upper one (the one for the adjustable telescopic tube into the machine)

Many thanks in advance!

Cor blimey, in a bit of a mess as I tried to undo it the wrong way at first. Guess it's onto eBay to buy some strap wrenches and WD40!

Thank you for the info, I would have gone mad trying to undo it otherwise.

Why the two locking nuts rotate opposite ways, I will never understand...

Boa strap wrenches sorted it out in no time. Ive put permanent marker arrow indicating the unscrew direction, as it always seems counterintuitive to me- perhaps because I'm a lefty?
