    I have one. The most useful thing about the manual is the Complete circuit diagram. Ill try to get it scanned in the next few days and archive it somewhere.

    It's likely after 11 years (original post) to be buried in landfill, so
    perhaps if you post this, someone can build a replica and use it to find
    the original (and fix it).

    Hi Dave,

    Did you manage to get a copy of the manual? My children have just bought the same medal detector from a charity shop and we have no idea how to use it. Could you send me a copy of the manual of you have one? Or give me a few pointers for how to work it?
    We turn it on and it just makes a loud noise! Thanks, Pam

    Are you still looking? My son had one about 25-30 years ago and it is
    still used very occasionally for hunting pipes in concrete floors etc.!
    I could have a look for the manual, we normally keep them all, but
    finding one so old is the problem! The red button on the handle is the
    key control for zeroing the sound as I recall. C+

    Charlie and Pam-

    You may be more likely to find a manual for the Micronta 4003. It is
    probably close enough to the 4001.

    The 4003 is a 63-3003 part number. I assumed the 4001 might be a
    63-3001, but the manual I found did not have the red button used for auto-zeroing.

    I found a Micronta 4001 for sale on E-Bay. It is a Radio Shack part
    number 63-3002. I suspect there is so little information available
    because it was replaced by the 4003 (63-3003) after only a short time.

    That manual seems to be somewhat rare. You would do others a favor if
    you would scan it and upload it to https://www.mods.dk/.
