Thanks, Mark. Interesting! I happen to have the old 1260 X which was my very first machine acquired back in '94. It came with the 8" and 3.75" coils. I recently picked up a used 11" coil also with the skinny grey cord. I'm wondering if these box coils, as you call them, would work on my 1225X. Would you know? Regards. Duck!:confused:

I'm thinking that Fisher made a 1220 and a 1260 and I'm pretty sure that the coils for them were dedicated to just those two models and will not interchange with any other models.

Ron, Duck

I found that when the 1270 gets chattery at high sensitivity settings turning the volume control down and readjusting your headphones solves the problem. The volume control on the 1270 acts like a gain control according to one of the techs I talked to at the old Fisher.

When I first bought my 1270 I was like you...too dang heavy! But the thing was just too deep to let go some I came up with this hipmount. Definitely not good in brushy areas but anywhere else it works great. The trigger is right there to pinpoint with too.

Nice invention, Kieth-Tex! Wish I had that big coil. What's it like to swing - with and without your modifications? Regards, Duck!
