Did a quick search and didn’t find a answer.
Has anyone come up with an adapter that lets the V1 mount to the ecort mag mount?
Just thinking that down the road it might be a project that I’ld play with
Have made adapters for my other detectors so they all work the the mag mount...

Since no one answered, guess it hasn’t been done. Have thought about it and know what to do. It’s frustrating that since the company I work for was acquired I’m not allowed to use the Bridgeport anymore. Guess I’m going to have to learn 3D printing. Library says it’s available.
  • We can only print .stl files. Limit of one file per request. File size must be less than 30MB.
  • We do all of our 3-D printing using Makerbot PLA filament
  • GARFIELD HEIGHTS BRANCH
    MAYFIELD BRANCH
    PARMA-SNOW BRANCH
  • This is going to take awhile
  • I miss Tapatalk this is so screwed up

I will mention that after testing a number of PLA designs I made in Fusion 360 for an automotive environment, the first thing you will realize once you've got your design to the point that you can print a suitable test object, you will find that PLA will not hold up for virtually anything that has any weight bearing or stressed regions. Even items that only has to sustain it's own weight will in short order deform with the temperatures common in a parked vehicle.

At that point, you will quickly realize that in order to upgrade the material, you have to move up the tiers to a considerably more expensive printer. Please know this in advance before wasting your money and time on an entry level printer. I hope this helps.
