  1. Hello all, I just signed up! Does anyone know what happened to the UKGPA? I was a member and I met up with a few from there on a gold panning trip about 3-4 years ago. Thought I'd like to get back into it and have another go, but I can no longer find their website and no trace of them on the internet! Think it was Dave and Julie running it, if I remember rightly? Would be great to know if they are still around? any info would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

  3. As many of you have no doubt heard, the COVID19 situation in El Paso is pretty serious. I posted a while ago information I got from them that they were busy working and shipping product (not so many AQ’s - but). Well, I just had a chance to talk to my main contact in Sales Management at FTP and I think it is useful to share the general message I got. She explained to me that the (new) facility at FTP has advanced air circulation and filtration systems - that all personnel have been provided with highly effective face masks and that workstations and all other aspects of the internal organizatio
  4. There is a little coin shop next town over from me that used to be a Whites dealer and now has a big Garrett Sign out front. Will stop in and see what they have for inventory. Seems Garrett is using some of the original Whites dealers for distribution. Nice to see the dealers still offer equipment and not disbanding local sales. Good to be able to see new units in hand rather than just online pictures and videos.
  5. I spoke with Todd Marshall today and he just picked up ALL the left over parts from White's. He said to give him about 3 weeks to sort it all out before calling for availability.
  6. I am hesitant to ask about another detecting forum, so I hope it is OK, but is anyone else having trouble getting TNet to load??
  7. I never bought here but they looked like a good place to do so. I saw some good buys there, and listing was free. But now they are gone? Seems to be happening a lot in metal detector land these days. http://www.treasureclassifieds.com/
  8. Any attempt to go to the https://www.whiteselectronics.com/ website is now redirected to the Garrett website. We do not know if Garrett will maintain White's as a separate product lineup, but this is a tiny bit of evidence they may not. On the other hand, it may simply be that a redesign of the White's website is underway. But for now, the old White's website is gone.
  9. I have no information on specific details but have been informed that First Texas is open and busy processing orders.
  10. Some time ago I recall Dilek saying Nokta Makro were going to work on a PI detector, well over a year ago from memory, it's that long ago now I guess most have forgotten about it, not me! my ears perked up and I got excited. I think the market has far too few manufacturers of decent PI machines and with White's collapsing the TDI is now likely to just be part of detecting history, although not ground breaking by any means at least it was another option. Nokta have great prospecting machines when it comes to VLF's, you need to complete the set and have a PI to go with it. First Texas m

  14. Last week my battery conked out. The Nox ran on the charger..... but not the battery. I called Keith Leppert my dealer out of Fort Bedford Metal Detectors, where by the way ML repair is, and asked him what i needed to do. He gave me a phone number and they gave me an RMA to send the machine in. When i took the machine apart ... i noticed stress cracks in the plastic mounts that holds the bolts in on the pod. She added that to my battery issue. They received it on Friday and i got a message from John who said they would get right on it, but because of the Virus there could be a delay bu

  17. Just noticed this on the White's USA website, offloading of factory machinery. Full list of equipment can be found here Equipment ranging from Forklifts to Scopes and Drill presses Can't purchase any of this in the UK, but I thought it would interest members from the USA Whites-Equipment-List.pdf

  19. https://codan.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/FINAL-INVESTOR-PRESENTATION-20-Aug-20.pdf Metal detector sales up 30% (Recreational 11%, Gold Prospecting 42%) - Africa is the largest market by far (due to gold prospecting detectors) - New gold prospecting model coming GPX 6000 - X-Terra and Safari discontinued - Thirty million invested in Engineering / R&D. No wonder the competition can't keep up! I found it interesting that even with the new Vanquish and Equinox, sales growth is heavily weighted to the gold prospecting models, illust

  21. 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
  22. Whites Electronics stop operation in June of this year. Based on conversations with representatives, Whites is looking for a buyer and contemplating other options. For all practical purposes, they are currently not in business. Visiting White's web site, you will notice they have nothing in stock. I seriously doubt they will not debut any new detectors in the near future. It breaks my heart. I think most of us in the detecting hobby saw this coming. I don't understand why White's didn't. They let themselves get woefully behind the 8 ball in the gold detecting arena. The GMT is still there be
