Pirate Detector Accessories???

Post by smw5767 » Sun Apr 10, 2016 5:22 pm

Hi Guys
looked on the Pirate Detector Website and the just have Detectors only.
I'm after a control Box cover for a Pirate Aploonia 14 Khz, or anyone know of one that will fit it please? Just brought the machine and hate the thought of using it without a cover.
Any info much appreciate.

I have heard of this detector brand but never seen anyone actually use one,so if not many folks swing a Pirate detector you wont in theory get a great amount of folks replying,of course i could be wrong but its not a popular brand so after market makers would not tend to make control box covers for them,especially even if the makers dont provide covers either.

Of course its possible that some covers for another brand may fit or be adapted,but i feel it could be a hard to find one,maybe try and find someone who makes one off covers.

Doubt you will find one. Looked on there website none listed. I normally I just use a strong plastic bag and a couple of rubber bands.

Shower cap might fit? Looks very close to some other detectors. Maybe as in idea go to one of the large detector shops and ask to try a few.


I have a industrial sewing machine. If you provide a paper templet I could knock one up for you.

my best advice is make your own latex one .
wrap box in cling film ,then paint it with few coats of latex rubber mold making solution .
i will add link to 500ml as example ,but you wouldnt need half that quantity .
another option is just to coat machine in laytex and seal cracks where water might get in ,when you come to sell machine just peel latex off and you have new machine again .
my dad used this stuff to make custom candles in 70's ,was great fun and so easy .http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Liquid-Latex- ... SwpdpVYvTc" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Hi,
Looking to the size and the shape of the control box, I think that the controlbox cover of a goldenmask 4 (old model) will fit.
