Recommended Posts

We need to find out how he died. Natural causes or suicide?   If suicide, well did the detector drive him off the edge?

It's been a little of "all of the above," plus more like trouble with component suppliers and downright manufacturing complexity. Everything that could go wrong did so all the way through the process.

Seriously, I think we all need to step back a moment and realize just how difficult it is to produce a product in today's marketplace. There are so many factors involved. R&D, collaboration's, mon

The whole thing was very strange. Loads of Non Disclosure Agreements with would be testers. One wonders if money changed hands?

In any event, respects for the man who is now gone.

Not sure why it really matters, but my understanding is that he had longstanding health issues (if you read the TNET thread links it is spelled out there).  I was not involved in the project.  Others who were more closely involved and who are members here may chime in, but the intent of my post was merely to inform not to turn this into a lurid tale of rumor, conspiracy, or drama.  A family is grieving for a lost loved one, should probably leave it at that.

I exchanged a few emails with Richard early on and my impression was that he was the sole designer. The TNet "associates" gave input on desired features/performance and were to eventually field test the design, but it doesn't appear to have reached that stage. I don't think anyone was ever asked to pony-up any money.

Some of the associates were adamant that this was going to be a game-changer. I never understood if they actually saw anything demonstrated or if it was all based on verbal promises. At this point I assume next-of-kin will figure out what to do with the thing, assuming they are even aware of the thing.

      So after hunting at a Park my friend Greg and I went to a beach, first time with the Alter. Right away I was baffled by the amount of chatter. Changing freqs made minimal difference and I did find a couple of items at 4". The beach was fine sand with a very rock water line- low tide, loaded with iron trash. I realized the sensitivity was at 75, after lowering to 50 the chatter was mostly gone. I am looking for tips for beach settings from you experienced folks.

      Finding hidden or lost items is my favorite hobby during free-time. I use bounty hunter for detecting. Last week, when I was cleaning the basement, I found a mining instrument, an overhauser magnetometer. My brother might have left it there. He is an Archaeologist. When I read about it, I understood that, it can be used for detecting gold mineral. Does anyone here heard of finding treasures of stuffs with a magnetometer?

      Hello everybody, does anyone have information about this brand (Deteknix) and his metal detectors (Quest)? Has anyone test it and are there any opinions about the detectors? It is not at Steve’s data base. Thanks.
