    Anderson Straight Shaft and SEF 15x12 Coil - Nylon Washers and Screw Problem

    I have a minelab Excal 1000 with a Detech 15x12 Butterfly coil. I have it mounted on an Anderson straight shaft. I had one of the rubber washers that holds the coil in place rip and fall apart. I ordered the standard replacement washers that are made for the Anderson shaft but it won't hold my coil in place. It wobbles and stays loose. I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion as to where I can get a replacement washer? Kellyco does not have them on their site for the Detech coil and the Anderson replacement does not work. Any other suggestions would be great. I believe the nylon screw is 1/4 inch by 2. I need to make the coil so it wont wobble and stay in place when searching. Thank you.
    If you don't look for it you won't find it!! So get out there and dig it.

    I would get rid of the anderson lower shaft and use the stock shaft from Minelab. I have 3 Detech coils, 2 12x15 and a 15x18 and never had issues with washers using them.... I made my own straight shaft for both my excals for $25 each total $50 for 2.....

    I made this out of some plastic sheet to stabilize the coil on the Surf PI Dual Field!
    In the small holes I attach it with a zip tie. the larger hole is for the coil bolt and nut!

    Best of Luck!

    If the problem is that the washers just aren't thick enough just go to the hardware store and get some thin fiber or rubber washers and shim the originals up. This is a common problem with aftermarket shafts and coils and easily remedied. I had to get an extra thin fiber washer to get my Coiltec WOT coil to fit nicely on my Safari shaft. You can usually get several for a dollar or two.
    Ya won't find nuthin' if ya don't hunt
