this was just given to me. friend of mine found it in a dumpster. still works but :-[ the gound adjustment knob is broke. so it will only find surface targets.. think its worth fixing? or can u bypass it to run full deep ???

The faceplate looks exactly like my BH Red Baron 5 (bought it new back in 1979 and still have it ;D). You could probably fix that gb knob issue, unless the problem is in the circuitry. They are very simple on the inside. I've "repaired" mine many times.

Cool find,

If you can't fix at least you can keep it for an antique and a conversation piece.

Keep @ it and HH!!
