depends how handy you are, if its come away from the coil then im not sure if its repairable, could be the perfect time to take the next step and upgrade to a garrett for example, perfect entry level machine, more than capable and not too pricey.

It looks completely stuffed, how on earth did you manage that? Maybe it is an omen to upgrade to something much better? :D

I dont hold out much hope for a repair.

There are often used coils in the market place.

What coil is it ?

I was lucky enough to be given a maplins n87ka digital but the box on it seams like a 1970s game makes all crazy sounds and says iron is silver half the time but the coil is the same connection as the box from this one so can I use the other coil if the bolt fits ?

Bear in mind that the other coil might not be compatible and the plug may be wired differently. x;
