GC-1010 detector

Post by Beppo » Sat May 12, 2018 4:02 pm

Hi folks, I've just joined your forum. ::g I bought my daughter a GC-1010 detector at a car boot sale and when I picked it up from leaning on a wall, the search head just slid out of electronics part of the machine. I think there's something missing that attaches to the tube so that you can alter the reach of the unit. There's just two square holes in the tube at the electronics end. Does anyone know what the part is, and where I'd get one? I were gonna drill a few holes in the search head tube but I'd like it to be how it's supposed to be. I've looked on Google for an exploded view of the unit but can't find one. Hope sumdy can help. I tried to attach two foties but it they were too big.
Regards,
Beppo.

Thanks for the Manual and the info on posting foties. I'll see if I can get them to come up. Looks like they are there. There's obviously something missing from the tube. Thanks.

I was hoping sumdy would know where I might get the part that I need to make it adjustable. x;

GC-1010 Detector

Hi there folks, does anyone know what the blue part in the photo is called and where I might get one for my daughter's GC-1010? It fits on the end of the tube in the photo.
Regards,
Beppo.

It's called a 'wedge' (?) , and the whole assembly is usually called a 'cam-lock'. You're very unlikely to be able to obtain one, unless it's salvaged from another similar machine.
However ... you can easily get them for well-known brands of detector, one obvious choice may be C-Scope in Kent. You would have to use metalworking skills to make new holes in the tube, though.
What matters is the diameter of the metal tube, so it would help if you could tell us what yours is.

Joan Allen have Minelab ones listed:

but it's highly likely that this machine is a close match for your one (all these Gold Century type machines are very similar) so maybe ask if they've got parts available.

Thanks for the help. At least I know what the parts are called now. Are there any Detector shops in Lancashire that I can visit and maybe get the part? I've put Metal Detector shops in Google and anything but comes up.

Fitting a bolt and wingnut might be your best bet if the correct part is unobtainable, don't squash the tube though.

Thanks for the replies Bubs. My daughter's friend has a Micronta 3001 and the threaded bit fits the GC-1010 perfectly, but I can't find spares for that detector either.

Beppo.
