Scoops

I see a lot of homemade scoops on here but none that I have seen have showed a step by step on how to make one, lets get a few on this list! I believe some are welded together and some are put together using pieces, no welding involved. Let's have a couple of both! Thanks.

I would like to personalize my metal detector when I get it and wondered if anyone had tried dipping? Like those dipping techniques they use on car wheels. I was thinking about doing the shafts avoiding the metallic colors. Any thoughts, trials/tribulations, and/or suggestions??

Feed coil wire through shaft???

Hello from a newbie!

I was wondering if the cable wire wrapped around the shaft acts as a phasing coil?

If not I would like to send it up through the center of the shaft exiting by the head unit.

Any ideas?

-Cheers

I made a sand scoop out of a hula hoe back in the day. I will look for it and post a picture. I attached a bird suet cage to the front part then weaved steel wire in between the spaces on the cage. Worked excellent for sand and hard pack. You would pull the sand instead of scooping.
