  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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 counterfeit instruments coming from China. Lastly, there have been critical material shortages since the Covid 19 shutdown that we now find insurmountable. All of us here in Sweet Home are grateful for your service. We consider each you part of the White's extended family. Sincerely, Ken White American Made Metal Detectors since 1950
  7. Yes, I hate to get rid of it; but I have a closet full of detectors and some only gather dust.
  8. White's GM3 Goldmaster for sale $300 shipped lower 48 US. Used but not abused. Works as it is supposed to.
  9. Maybe the original Fisher Gold Bug, White's Goldmaster II, Minelab SD2000. I have had and used so many since about 1985.
  10. RIP Fred. Condolences to his family.
  11. Reg had done a mod on my TDI and some other things for me over the years. I tried to call him a while back and never heard back from him.
  12. Wow! Chuck thanks for posting these photos. I appreciate your willingness to send me more, but since it's a lost cause; it wouldn't do much except make me drool more. LOL
  13. Yes Chuck, they got ripped off by the state of Texas big time. And kept me out of there also. One my friend's dad was a surf fisherman at little shell and big shell and found a piece of eight silver coin that was washed up in the surf. I lived in Corpus Christi in 1965 and I had rented and old surplus mine detector to search the area back then, but didn't find any thing. Yes there were several treasure ships in the area. I'd like to see that map and the pictures of the treasure. That would be cool! Best wishes! Jim
