Recent mod to the EuroPro
Quote this message in a reply
Yesterday, Caved in and added a manual GB to the europro.

Not that it needed one for the EuroTek preset GB appears to be working well in various grounds, But couldn't resist and added a GB.

It has it's benefits, I'd rather GB for my type of hunting

It has one drawback to adding on a GB and I knew this before starting the mod but for relic hunting this issue wouldn't matter since we dig all conductive signals above iron, Target ID is effected with the added GB. Depending how bad the dirt is or good for that matter any adjustment to the GB will effect ID. Not by much depending on soil conditions but for coin shooters one must rememeber these ID differences.

However, Placing the GB knob at 12'oclock will place the unit back to the same GB setting as preset GB.

Otherwise, The added GB is a neat feature.

Thanks for looking,
Paul (Ca)

Now that's something, Paul. Interesting indeed. As you said, if you're using it as a relic machine, wouldn't matter if the VDI is off a bit, since you're pretty much digging everything anyways.

Paul, this is a good post. I might make it a sticky, so it remains on top of the list. You might want to write more detailed mod instructions, since I think many users with the Euro's will find this VERY handy Wink

Thanks Joe, Ray and Mike,

This was the first phase of the adding on a ground balance pot, Just finished the second phase both go hand in hand.

What I wanted to do was maintain the stock preset GB yet with a flip of a switch go to manual GB, Now the unit can operate with stock preset for coin shooting and if someone new to the hobby used this as a loner can use the preset GB instead of fussing with manual GB.

Works great! I destroyed the stock minature trimmer pot by accident so had to replace it with another mini trimmer pot and remount it in a another area.. It's a simple mod basic layout going with a parallel setup.

Before I forget, One of the pics shows the short GB window when using manual GB. Like I was saying earlier this circuit is different from all the others I've encountered.

At least it's completed, A fun mod glad it turned out as planned.

Thanks again,
Paul (Ca)

Hey Paul! Nice mod! I wish you didn't live on the other side of the country. I'd be knocking on your door and pestering you all the time about detecting. I've flown out to California a couple times but my wife might not appreciate me leaving her with the two kids very long. Lol! Great work!!
