It should not make any difference to the performance of the machine, you can use the metal detector with it on or off, its simply a protector to stop the coil getting scuffed / damaged over time, its makes sense to keep it on in this case ::g

Not a silly question. The answer is very simple - yes!

Detecting means rocks, gravel, etc. The coil cover protects the sensitive base from getting damaged. Only ever detect with it on ::g
