One for sale 50 miles from me with two coils. Looks to be in excellent condition and seller states works great. Any input on this detector.

I've never owned one but there was a local guy that used one. He loved his. It's a pulse machine best used on salt water beaches or in the water without a lot of trash.

Not sure if you can get it fixed if it breaks
I believe it was a whites design with stronger voltage
Jim Pugh was the inventor

I believe VLAD owns one as did Clive....... killer machines ive been told, hard to come by...... and ya if it breaks you might be in trouble. BUT .... if you get it for the right price and dont mind using a PI..... there ya go.

Really...... could have sworn Craig say you did. I know he has one needing some battery work.

My PI was an early non motion non submersible ferr/non ferr by meter pre Goldscan Foster unit. (land version of the Aquapulse I believe)
I gave it to Old Beechnut. (I think Keith Wills @ East Texas Metal Detectors http://www.brokendetector.com/ (has FB page too) can easily repair any unit.
I suspect Anchor units were probably old designs of Eric's, possibly reverse engineered. Eric's in his 80's now and I've lost his ph # but
maybe Mr.Bill has contact info.
(I do not know how much more clear I can be: never means, "at no time ever.")
