I just received this email! Important Information from White's Electronics June 18, 2020 To our valued White'

This was very unexpected, I thought they had another 5 years just coasting. White's had a lot of problems, but I gotta say that in all the jobs I've had the past 40 years, the 6 with White's was by fa

There were a lot of problems, starting with the family. They never had a high opinion of engineers and thought they could be easily replaced as needed. And one particular engineer with an outsized ego

I'm very sad to see them stop operations. My first real detector was also a White Coin Master back in 1975. I just bought a TDI SL two weeks ago with the intention of doing some modifications. I got tired of building PI's so I figured I needed something to start with. Hope they can come back some day and hire some real talent moving forward.

I have used every Whites produced since the CM4. Looks like the cash cow finally ran out for the owners coupled with all the other problems in the world.

There were a lot of problems, starting with the family. They never had a high opinion of engineers and thought they could be easily replaced as needed. And one particular engineer with an outsized ego had a knack for either getting other engineers to leave (like me) or for getting them fired. IMO, the downhill run started when Mark Rowan was let go. The V3 barely survived that, most of the rest did not.

I thought the company could coast a while longer selling the models they had. The MXT & GMT (and derivatives) are quite good. But that was pre-Equinox, which suddenly made all those products overpriced. And the cost structures at White's don't support cutting prices in half.

 

carl! i want to "thank" you for your contributions over the years!..i always liked the m6 in particular, since it was soo good at sniping coins and jewelry.they tried to ''kill" it ,and they couldn't, so they had to bring it back. if any detector fits the description of ''sleeper" then the m6 is it. i had the xl pro which was a genuine ''sweetheart" with that "dead nuts" accurate meter. the 6000 series 2 and 3 detectors were great during the 80's.and the eagles introduced digital designs..to tell you the truth, i thought whitey had something in ''skunk works" ready to be released, so this comes as a shock to me.i enjoyed the hell out of whites products.they found me a 'ton' of great stuff over the years.

(h.h.!)

It's really a shock to me to see White's go. What a huge name they have been since the beginning. So now the devoted White's followers will have to put their money into the few remaining companies.

      Just letting everyone overseas in Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania,Canada and everywhere else outside of the states know that I got the shipping rates corrected  for The Nugget Shooter's Field Guide, and reduced. Even the rates for ordering in quantity is way less.

      Minelab has just applied for an Australian Design Patent for a "Tray".
      Anyone have any ideas what this would be?

      Sorry for the cross post in meet and greet.
      New to the forum, just wanted to say hello before I started to ask questions here haha. Several years ago I bought a junker metal detector to test out the hobby, it died a couple years later now I'm back.
      Wondering how good Kellyco customer service is. Ordered a new MD from them and after 10 days of patiently waiting, I was sent what Is obviously a used machine. I paid for a new one so I'm a bit irritated about it. It's Sunday so I have to wait until tomorrow to call. I could have ordered one through Amazon, but thought I'd give them a try. Any issues with Kellyco before? Not looking to bad mouth anyone, just wondering if this is common business practice. They have been around a long time I see, so I guess I expected more from them.

      Got word recently, that both Tim Mallory and Mike Scott have lost their jobs at 1st Texas.  I think it was, maybe 2 years ago when Gene Scullion and others lost their jobs too.  That makes me wonder about Lupe, who is one of the workers at the main plant.
      I guess Covid has affected more than just a few businesses.

      An intrepid forum member passed this along. Interesting, as the name does not sound “recreational” to me, more like something for geologists or exploration companies?
      November 29, 2020 note: We know now this is related to the new GPX 6000 introduction.
