What Is On Your Wish List From White’s Electronics

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering ,if it’s something out there that you would or wish White’s had to offer you as their customer ?

White’s have a waterproof pinpointer or just a land one . It has a VLF waterproof detector and lots of land detectors.It has one TDI PI detector and it’s a land only.

Do you see the same void I see that White’s  needs to fill ?

I can’t say how receptive people would be to another waterproof PI detector. When I got mine ( say what it is ) land TDI I never dug so deep for a single coin before. I wanted to get nearer to the water but I knew with one wave it would be lost .

What do you think if we had a waterproof detector be it VLF or PI that handle vibrate and do away with having to wear waterproof headphones? The vibrating handle has worked for another detector company. If they can make a pointer work that way then why not a detector ?

You tell not me but White’s what you would like from them.

A V3i Pro with 1) a better auto ground balance system, 2) a true manual ground balance adjustment ability, 3) faster audio response especially in discriminate, 4) a faster processor (to help with the laggy disc audio), and 5) the ability to hunt in single frequency but pinpoint in three frequency.  

The V3i is one fantastic detector and deserves a "Pro" update.  Please White's don't give up on this almost complete masterpiece of a detector.

You guys have good requests. I just want to be able to see through iron (especially chunks of tin roof). Ghost towns would be 10x better with a feature like that!

 If you could see through iron then we’d be saying Look up in the sky it’s a bird, it’s a plane no it’s Tom from White’s Electronics.

PS When you do have one let me know,

Its Ok to write my name on the bathroom wall but please don’t put for a good time call Chuck. My wife was wondering from the last time why I was getting so many calls.

Not something new, but I will probably buy another White's Ground Hawg shovel. That way I can keep one in Florida, and the other in Oklahoma while we are stationed there. I'll be going back and forth occasionally, and my Equinox 600 and 800 will be in separate States, so one shovel with each.  The Ground Hawg is really awesome!  Cuts like a hot knife through butter, and beautiful and easy clean plugs, and other than the color (fixable),  it is near perfect!

Yes, a detector that simply told ferrous from non-ferrous cleanly and with no fuss would be great. Every VLF I have ever used gets fooled by numerous ferrous objects. Any detector really aggressive at rejecting ferrous also misidentifies and accidently rejects non-ferrous. It always seemed to me that ferrous items having the additional magnetic properties would be better identified and rejected, but that is still an area of difficulty for most any detector. I really don't mind digging non-ferrous junk but it is very annoying to get a good non-ferrous signal and have it turn out to be a rusted steel washer or piece of rusted flat flaky steel.

A lightweight waterproof TDI , now thats a dream . And probably will only ever be . Wont be cheap either if it did happen .

Having used the EQ800 for several days now (and still haven't mastered it) I think back to the surf PI I started with and how my targets are similar except perhaps for the nail/bobbypin count. I wonder if the pi circuit could be improved so that you use the existing circuit for finding the target but additional added features to then qualify it. If they could get it to detect small gold it would help too - but I think this is a feature that is not always wanted due to the trash it detects.

      One year ago My husband and I decided to try our hand at metal detecting.We were total newbies with a steep learning curve. We purchased a used Xterra 705 for our starting machine. We downloaded and printed Randy Horton’s Xterra guide and have read it many times.  It is a valuable tool for any Xterra owner. We spent the last year educating ourselves on the basics of metal detecting and getting to know our machine. 
      We are feeling pretty confident about the Xterra except for one issue.  I am looking for advice on any errors we are committing or if we possibly have something wrong with our detector.  We have contacted minelab, but they never got back to us about our issue.  So here goes...
      We are having an issue with TID numbers with in ground silver. We have several old silver coins we use for testing.  They air test  perfectly per published Xterra TID charts. When we place a coin (dime, quarter or half dollar, doesn’t matter) in a dug plug and cover, the coins register as ferrous (-8, -6 or -4) every time regardless of the coil we have installed.  We have the stock 9” 7.5 kHz and the 6” 18.75 kHz Double D coils.  We cannot get silver to register as anything but ferrous in the ground.  The depth does not matter.  
      We usually run in all metal or discrim 1 on occasion.  We go through a set up each time we arrive at a place to detect that includes noise canceling, threshold, sensitivity and manual ground balance, although we usually detect in auto ground balance. We use 99 tones and silver in the ground has a ferrous “thunking” sound to go along with the TID numbers.
      We have reset to factory setting several times in the hope of solving this issue to no avail.  We are out of ideas and possibly need service.  Thank you for reading this far.  Any advice or suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

      I was wondering if anyone would want to share pictures of there display cases, not so much shadow boxes but anyone with larger display cases. I love old and nice ones so thought it would be cool to see some...ive got one i pulled out of a general store that opened in the 1930s and been working on it for awhile getting it cleaned up, also have a smaller one that i literally seen in a junk pile on the side of the road that ive been working on replacing rotten wood and for sum reason they lined the inside with wallpaper so been cleaning that up to.. i found the smaller one and amazingly the old glass didnt even have a crack in it..

      When primary aim is finding meteorites (also with low iron/ nickel content), what metal detector would be a good idea to get (within budget)?
      Minelab Gold Monster 1000 (no manual ground balance, does this matter?)
      Minelab Equinox 600 (no real all metal mode??)
      Makro Multi Kruzer (how sensitive to small objects?)
      Makro Gold Kruzer (unknown when it will ship)
      Other detector (why?)
      Or do I need to spend more, i.e. get an XP Deus? I would very much appreciate any insight or even practical experience. Thank you very much for your time!

      Got out with the equinox, got this old piece of brass i think. Does anyone know what this might be?

      Am wanting to purchase a Sdc 2300 all checks out on serial numbers etc and is a good price with many extras.
      my concern never using one before I set up three pieces of lead. 0.05g , 1.13g, 2.00g.
      i ran the Sdc over the three individual and the two larger pieces good solid signal up to 300mm lift.
      it would not pick up the 0.05g? Also ran it over 2.5g nugget yep good signal.
       
      i then ran my old AT Gold over the three same. As per the Sdc the AT went off and up to 300mm difference here is the AT picked up the 0.05g light signal but good solid number at around 50mm lift.
      AT also same on nugget.
      my question is shouldn’t the s
      Sdc have picked up the sub Gram lead?? Isn’t that what it is supposed to grab onto??
      Im a bit lost as to what to do now purchase/don’t purchase Can anyone confirm that it should have picked that up, could there be a problem with it.
       
      really want it but was expecting it to leave the AT Gold for dead??
       
      Thanks Guys
      Donnie
