I know you are making fun at this but before I got my NEL sharpshooter I was going to try this to see if it changed the balance.

That coil would be pretty close to the shaft with the coiled wire wrap. I bet the owner is not pleased with the performance.

I have seen law enforcement on the news and other things with the coil on backwards.

I saw a news piece with a crime scene tech looking for shell casings with a detector. The coil cable was hanging below the shaft completely unwrapped and swinging like a pendulum.

Since I work in IT, the acronym EBCAC comes to mind.. Error Between Computer and Chair. User error can be pretty hilarious

Actually that is the indian error or Cherokee error. Interface between chair and keyboard.

Then we have the PICNIC error ...... Problem in chair, Not in computer

And of course the I D Ten T error or IDIOT

Those are the most common computer errors.

Wink naw, you all got it wrong.

It is used for looking for gold in hardrock mines on the ceiling of the mine.

I've seen that done in the past when large coils were new and heavy and users were trying to create a balanced system.

Coils have gotten lighter and ergonomics are designed into units and harnesses have been developed so you don't see that too often anymore.
