I have here a Vintage Fisher M-Scope Model 29 available..this unit was owned by the late David G. Woods a County assessor from Marklevile California. Its complete with original head phones and instruction manuals from Fisher laboratories in Palo Alto California. For its age its in incredible good condition...looking at it it looks hardly used. It would make a great addition to any vintage collector of detectors. p.M. if interested or have any questions.
In 1936 Fisher Labs moved to a small building at 745 Emerson St. in Palo Alto to meet the growing demand for the Metallascope, which was nicknamed the M-Scope. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Fisher was granted a patent for his invention. The M-Scope became the accepted standard for all types of electronic metal detection. Geologists used it to locate ore, treasure hunters found treasure, utility companies pinpointed buried pipes, lumber mills detected metal inclusions in sawn logs and law enforcement uncovered abandoned and hidden weapons. In 1939, just prior to World War II, Fisher moved to an even larger building in Palo Alto at 1961 University Ave. During World War II and the Korean Conflict, Fisher Research Labs was called upon to contribute its technical competence to the war effort, but the M-Scope business was never neglected.
