  1. The machine will still be deeper. You just won't see an ID or accurate depth reading and be less chatty. Is what I'm getting. ID stability and depths have been changed back to the same levels of version 2.68. This will NOT affect the overall depth and sensitivity of the device.
  2. My Whites service center told me Whites waterproof detectors work well. Just don't get them wet!
  3. My rule of thumb with a consumer electronics that after 10 years buy a new one!
  4. Happy Fathers day Steve! I hope your eyeballs are doing better.
  5. White's had ample time to step up to the competition and just chose to lay back and go the way of the dinosaur. I grew up with and had many Whites machines and all were good performers. They just didn't respond to what the customers wanted and what other companies had to offer for less money. I'm sad to see them go. Thank you for the countless thoughts of treasure and the great memories of searching for them. God Bless and good luck to their employees and to Ken. Johnny DeMarco
  6. A few years back I was interested in micro soldering. I went out and bought a 40X stereo microscope and a camera for my laptop. After practicing on a ton of old motherboards I got decent at R&R components and surface mount chips. Just to say I did it. Now my hands ain't so good so I just buy a new whatever. I still like to take stuff apart to diagnose though. I figure you love that stuff too. I think I spent more on the stuff to make the repair than I saved on the repairs or mods. I call it tuition.
  7. I heard them called "cold" joints. I used to find them by touching the joints with a toothpick and see if I can induce the issue.
  8. There's other things designed for that. 😉 https://www.consumerreports.org/video/view/healthy-living/fitness/952474458001/consumer-reports-tests-the-shake-weight/
  9. Well don't be the richest guy in the graveyard! When I die I want it to be a sad occasion for everybody. 😉
  10. Looked interesting enough to share https://hackaday.com/2020/05/02/a-smart-diy-metal-detector/
  11. Thank you, Steve. I really do appreciate your hard work and this fine forum. Johnny D.
