Vintage 1978 Analog Metal Detector Build at the Dublin Hackerspace

Ongoing pics and documentation from a team at the Dublin Hackerspace that focuses on building vintage analog equipment based on tutorials written in an earlier golden age of analog. Via Dangerous Prototypes.

From TOG:

ETI Electronics, February 1978, IB Metal detector Mk2. This is the first in a series of ‘vintage’ electronics projects that we hope to build at TOG. We have the original magazine, so why not get building. There are some amazing projects in the electronics magazines from the 70’s and 80’s..... We’re talking pure analog electronics here….. there won’t be an Arduino or line of code in sight Although this project was first published in 1978, all of the components are still readily available....
