  1. Got a message while I was out of touch in Nevada. Holly? said they were reopening their Oregon repair center for 3 or 4 weeks. She said they'd take care of my GM24K problem, under warranty. Best news I've had since Tuesday Morning...LOL Jim
  2. https://www.detectorprospector.com/forums/topic/12929-important-announcement-from-whites-electronics/ 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
  3. I just received this email!

  4. For almost a half century, my family and I have enjoyed your multitude of metal detector models, 1st class Customer Support, and such friendly people who have worked with White’s. But most importantly, the family fun you have allowed millions of people across the globe to experience. Mr White’s, from me personally… to help fulfill my childhood dreams of becoming a Treasure Hunter. You see, our family started enjoying the MD’ing hobby about 1970. Then a couple years later as a young eager 7 yr old skinny kid trying my hardest to push that big blue metal box across a school yard, and from there it all began for me. Now, 40+ yrs later as an accomplished MD’erist and multi line dealer, pushing the same MD’ing passion onto as many folks as I come across, I can only wish you a fun filled and well deserved farewell. No reason for me to try and figure out the mistakes made, when how and or why? As it won’t change me, the person you have already helped mold and or the career path I took. I personally don’t care who did or didn’t do something at a certain time as we all only live 1 life on this mother earth and I feel the overall history of White’s has done a remarkable job. I do know this is this fact. There are many thousands of happy families and individuals out there who’ve had the pleasure of enjoying a White’s metal detector for 60+ yrs and to be honest, is an accomplishment most any other family run company would be proud of. Am I bitter? A little since I feel part of me is going away for good. But when I think back of all the friendships made, MD’ing adventures traveled, the countless pictures and memories shared with your detectors in my families hands, a big grin and smile comes across my face and I just chuckle a little at what you have made of me. Many people know, but my family knows best, I built my life around the MD’ing hobby and 30 yrs ago turned it into the most enjoyable thrilling job and career a treasure hunter could ever dream of. Again, All I can say is a big Thanks for a lifetime of fun and dreams fulfilled. Here is a salute to you White’s Electronics for all the great memories.
  5. Another forum member was wondering what the price of the new Goldmaster 24K might be in Australia. In the course of researching that, I see Goldsearch Australia is closing down. Does White’s have any other dealers in Australia?
  6. Now that White’s has closed the factory in Sweet Home, this is the officially designated place to have warranty work and service done in the U.S.: Centreville Electronics 9437 Main Street Manassas, VA 20110 (888) 645-0202 (703) 367-7999 Fax: (703) 367-0868 bobnpaul@centrevilleelectronics.net www.centrevilleelectronics.net

  8. There is a thread about this over on Dankowski. After having some muck slung at me by someone over there, who, among other things accused Fisher and me of palming a “Prototype” off on the public.
  9. This is odd. I just tripped over this clicking on the FT logo at the bottom of the Fisher Labs website. It looks new, but has a 2013 copyright date on it, and has models listed for sale that are now longer current. https://detecting.com/store/index.php/ It is basically a First Texas online store, with all three brands listed - Bounty Hunter, Fisher, and Teknetics
  10. Just corresponded with him a few months ago. He passed away two days ago. A great man, many of us will miss. https://rip.ie/death-notice/desmond-des-dunne-ballincollig-cork/425931
  11. Years ago I thought of a competition of sorts of getting metal detectorists together to go through a 'course' which would be akin to a test garden. BYO detector and see who could 'tell' what was and what wasn't at each stop on the course. This is nothing like that. haha https://minelabmetaldetectors.cmail19.com/t/ViewEmail/j/909B652EEB5D9FC52540EF23F30FEDED/DB0BCE1DBD546B193FEC1D8A50AFD3BD

  13. 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

  15. Treasure Depot is shutting down tomorrow. Detector/Prospector may get an influx of people wanting to join, to trade and sell detectors.
  16. Just a reminder. Minelab offers a 15% discount on any Minelab metal detector from the MAP (minimum advertised price) to U.S. active or honorably discharged members of the military. Proof of past or active service is required and must be verified by providing a copy of a DD 214 or Military ID to qualify. The discount applies only to a metal detector purchase - parts and accessories do not qualify. With discount the $799 Gold Monster 1000 is only $679.15. The Minelab GPZ 7000, normally $7999, ends up being $6799.15, a savings of $1199.85
  17. Any speculation on what they will be? For me I would like to see an Equinox powered by easy changeable batteries instead of having to return to a power source. Anyway, any guesses ?
  18. Sad to see a couple older forums closing. The excuse tends to be social media but this forums rapid growth says there is more to it than that. In any case, MyTreasureSpot is closing by the end of the month. And Treasure Depot sometime in June.
  19. Both the Fisher website and Teknetics website have been down for at least two days now.
  20. The Nokta/Makro AU Gold Finder is on sale currently at at least one dealer for $499.00 with two coils. The 56 kHz AU Gold Finder is a retro knobs style detector somewhat reminiscent of the Gold Bug 2 but with more advanced discrimination features. In what has become a rarity it can be hip or chest mounted, making it feather weight on the arm, and suitable for deep wading in water, especially with the water resistant control box. I'm not sure if this is a clearance price or what, but for $499 with two coils this is a good deal for anyone interested in a full warranty VLF nugget machine at a great price, especially if you like old style knobs. There is nothing over 40 kHz priced even close to this. I had one of these around for some time. It is a very capable machine, but when I did a house cleaning of my detectors a couple years ago I gave it to my brother, who still has it. As an FYI all Gold Racer coils are compatible with the AU Gold Finder, so there is quite a coil selection if your count aftermarket. Just be aware that Gold Racer cables are shorter and so not as suitable for the hip mount feature. AU Gold Finder More Information AU Gold Finder Straight Shaft Modification
  21. I was wondering if anyone has heard any new information on Minelabs new Metal Detector MF5 ? Im assuming MF5 would be 5 multi frequencys? Dont know could be wrong? If this topic has been discussed please delete... Picture is from US patent, Trademark website Thanks.. Dave

  23. XP Deus is asking for one to do a survey with the possibility of winning a MI 6 Pinpointer. The survey isn’t long so take the time and you may be a winner Chuck
