  1. If anyone wants to stake a claim in New Mexico, I have been doing it for over 20 years. I usually don't charge a thing. I enjoy doing it.
  2. I am not impressed with the BLM MLRS at all. The maps don't work properly. Also, I sent in a Quitclaim Deed for a transfer of interest in ownership on a claim on Feb.3, 2021. The new owner's name was added to the claim, but the sellers name is still there. I can't use the MLRS to correct this and the BLM says be patient, we will fix it. They haven't yet.
  3. Steve, I have the Fisher Factory repair manuals for the Motherlode 660 and the original Gold Bug. I did repairs and mods on a few of the Gold Bugs for friends. Even built a water proof one in a 1280x box. The tuning of the coils is covered in the manuals and a Ferrite sample was provided. You can have them if you want them. Best wishes! snakejim
  4. Lanyard? We ain't got no Lanyard. We don't have to show you no stinkin Lanyards! LOL It would be in my way. Just use a pouch or stick it in a pocket. I hunt nuggets mostly and use a scoop instead of a pin pointer.
  5. The BLM can be up to 90 days behind what is actually claimed. Check with BLM first. Then go to your County Clerk's office and check for claims located in the last 90 days in the area you are interested in. You have 90 days to notify BLM of your new claim.
  6. I lucked out. I sent in a GMT for repairs and it got to the factory the same day the dealers got the email about them closing. They called me yesterday and it's repaired and on it's way back to me.
  7. This company is doing repairs since Whites closed their doors: Centreville Electronics 9437 Main Street Manassas, VA 20110 (888) 645-0202 (703) 367-7999 Fax: (703) 367-0868 bobnpaul@centrevilleelectronics.net www.centrevilleelectronics.net Hope this helps!
  8. The factory said these folks will do the repairs. I have a GMT that I sent to the factory for repair and it arrived there the same day they sent the email to the dealers saying they were closing. I called and they said they would work about two weeks at the factory then send repairs to these folks. Centreville Electronics 9437 Main Street Manassas, VA 20110 (888) 645-0202 (703) 367-7999 Fax: (703) 367-0868 bobnpaul@centrevilleelectronics.net www.centrevilleelectronics.net
  9. I spoke to Todd at the factory today, since I have a GMT there for repairs. They will still do repairs for the next 2 weeks; then, if you have a detector that needs repairs you will have to send it to: White’s East Service Center Centreville Electronics 9437 Main Street Manassas, VA 20110 (888) 645-0202 (703) 367-7999 Fax: (703) 367-0868 bobnpaul@centrevilleelectronics.net www.centrevilleelectronics.net I would still call the factory first, just to be safe! Best wishes to all! snakejim
  10. I'm pretty sure they will take care of you. I sent in a GMT for repairs, and it was delivered to them yesterday. I'll call today to check and see what's happening. We should be ok for a while.
  11. I just received this email! Important Information from White's Electronics June 18, 2020 To our valued White's Dealers- This is a very difficult message to write, but the time has come for retirement from White's Electronics. We are suspending manufacturing operations at our Sweet Home facility while we re-evaluate the future of the company. It is never easy to make these decisions, however, we are faced with the reality of intense competition in the industry and ongoing counte
  12. Maybe the original Fisher Gold Bug, White's Goldmaster II, Minelab SD2000. I have had and used so many since about 1985.
