I’m here today to talk to you about the Teknetics T2 Professional metal detector. It’s a pretty neat piece of technology, we’re going to show you have to assemble it and use it today. What you see here are all the unboxed components of the unit. We have the search coil with it’s cable, we have the lower arm, the upper arm, and the control unit trigger computer, and arm rest. We have the screw capture that connects the search coil to the arms. They’ve thoughtfully provided a couple of cable ties so we don’t have this flopping around getting caught on things as you’re searching.
And there’s really only one connection after everything is put together. And you’ll notice there’s a small divit on the top of the plug so it’s virtually impossible to assemble this this incorrectly. First step in assembly, I’m going to take what they call the lower stem and I’m going to insert it into the search coil. It’s kind of a tight fit friction will keep this from flopping around. We’re going to capture it in here with this screw and nut. So you just have to fiddle with it slightly where it feeds through, tighten that down thumb pressure.
I wouldn’t torque this down too tightly because these caps are plastic and it’s not really intended to be tightened down permanently because depending on the surfaces you’re going to be searching in, you may want to adjust the angle of this. What i’m going to do now, I’m going to attach the upper stem to the lower stem. Now you’ll notice the spring-loaded button, this is to allow you to adjust the height of the unit during use easily.
You’ll see on one end there’s a silver button,on the other end there’s a plastic nut. We’re going to take these holes, make sure they’re facing the same direction as the silver button. Slip it over, push it in, you’ll see it come out, click into place. For the time being we’re just going to tighten this down and remember, just finger tight you don’t need a wrench for this.
Next I’m going to take the main unit, that houses the arm rest, the display operation trigger. Going to look for that same hole here, going to match up the direction of the top, loosen that just a bit, going to slide this in, press that button. Pop, tighten this finger tight. Just couple more steps. Going to take this cable and I’m going to wrap it fairly loosely around. Not tightly because remember this is made to be adjustable, on this plug you’ll notice a cut in the top. If you look at the jack is a very small raised area in the back that faces this curve.
So what we’re going to do, we’re going to line that up, slip it right in, tightened it down with this nut. To give you an idea the level of detail that Teknetics T2 Professional metal detector puts into these units, they’ve included some velcro wraps to tie the cable down. One for the bottom and one for the top. Okay what’s left, portable electricity. You’re going to need four AA-batteries, manufacturer says that a set of alkalines will give you about 40 hours of use. Manual says that the positive terminal faces forward on all four units. Close the cover, and you’re ready to go. And that’s the assembly of the Teknetics T2.
