Whites (Sears) TR/Discriminator Model 321.596420
Hey guys, I have this old Whites (Sears) TR/Discriminator Model 321.596420 metal detector... problem is that I need to replace the coil and do not know where to find one... The part number is 804-2408-502 and is listed as a 8" Loop 4BS2. Any idea on where I can find this, or if there is another coil that I might be able to use... Would really like to get some use out of this detector but with the current coil broken I am scared to take it out.

Sorry, this Sears 596420 is older than deolslyfox knew, early to mid 1970's. This model is the same as White's Coinmaster 4/D. Replacement search coils have not been available for 25 years or more. Although the search coil rarely failed on this model.
You would likely have to buy a used Coinmaster 4D off e-bay for any spare parts including the search coil. I have seen them sell for $25 - $35 in working condition.
You would not want to spend a lot of time or money on it. A brand new Coinmaster $179.95, will outperform the 4/D by a huge, huge, margin. Although there are some Southern California beaches where the 4/D really shined (unusually great performance), on the average a new Coinmaster would more than triple the 4/D typical detection depth and discrimination.
The 4/D and its big brother, the 5/D (interchangeable parts) were both huge, huge, numbers for sales units, should be able to find a used one fairly easy for parts.

Welcome to the forum CindyIneptocracy [in-ep-toc'-ra-cy] - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Thanks Steve. Glad I asked you to chime in. I deleted my post about the Blue Max coil possibly working.
I agree. With a unit this old, new technology is definately the way to go !!If there's anything I hate worse than diggin' pulltabs, its missin' a gold ring.
