    Scabbard tip? Worth it's weight in lead, & tragedy strikes

    Went back to the site where I found the 1836 pistol lock and dug every signal. (pull tabs not shown)

    Damaged this piece of brass when I was digging it out, shaped suspiciously like a scabbard tip. Probably some repro?

    Well this sounded awesome, previously found some lead solder (and the soldering iron) and a chunk of lead pipe, but this lead ingot made the detector scream.

    Then this happened... the ol girls suffered some abuse between being strapped to boats and rattling around the car I guess. JB weld and longer screws are in her future.

    I'd love to speak to whoever you got in touch with, used their contact form on the website and this was the reply:

    "All parts affecting the electronic components are proprietary and cannot be sent out. That said, if you are located in the US, you could send your AT Pro in for our technicians to repair if you so desire. Our preferred procedure would be to first create an RMA number for anything coming in – we’d take down your return shipping address, a contact phone number and the serial number of your detector and give you the number to write on the package. Then, you’d send in the coil and control box and our techs would look it over and get back to you with the repair estimate and see how you want to proceed. Please let me know if you would be interested in getting this process started and I’ll be happy to assist."

    Repair estimate? I just need the case! I'm not going to ship my detector off for who knows how long while they tell me what I already know.
    The universe rewards the observant.
