  1. Coming soon? Not just one, but a series? https://search.ipaustralia.gov.au/trademarks/search/view/2076039?q=minelab Minelab SilverSaver metal detector series
  2. I like watching the show How It’s Made and when I turned the TV on today it was about making detectors. They were at Garrett factory and started out showing how their coils were made plus how each was tested. Then they went through the whole assembly to complete a working metal detector. I’ve seen something like this before but I believe it was somewhat different than the previous one. It was just good to see something American made. Chuck
  3. I did some quick calculations the other day and to my surprise, realised that I have spent over $15,000 buying your awesome metal detectors. I don’t have a problem with that because I hunt the beach and water during the summer and hit the gold fields during the winter. My issue is with the current line up of gold detectors, specifically the pulse induction units which range in price from about $6000 to $10000 dollars. I know you plough a good deal of money into R&D but I feel a lot of your loyal purchasers are being neglected. I remember the days when the SD2100v1 and SD2200v2 detectors we
  4. First big price increase in some time. Shop your favorite dealer or Keene now to get what you can before websites catch up to the increase.
  5. I’m wondering if anyone knows anything about them . The only thing I know is they say their location is in Queen Creek Az. A friend ordered some dirt from them for panning and they got his money but didn’t get what he paid for. If you have any info please PM it to me. Thanks! Chuck
  6. The issue with counterfeit metal detectors is getting bad. eBay in particular is full of them. Amazon not as bad but they are there. If you Google for lowest pricing, you will find scammers. Be careful buying used now, could just be a front for a scammer. Fake Gold Bugs Destroyed It’s pretty simple. Metal detector products generally have enforced minimum advertised prices. That’s the price you see most often and at all the legitimate sites. It’s the price I list in the Detector Database. Anybody pretending to be a dealer and selling the item for significantly less is likely to be a scam.

  8. Dilek I know you’ve made videos at different times and it’s always a joy to hear and see what’s going on. You may not know this but you can make a old hound dog happy by throwing him a bone now and then. It’s the same with us here on the forum in we too like not a bone but just a hint of what’s coming out the back door of Nokta:Makro in the way of that multi frequency detector. I’ve lost track of the number of times that this subject matter has came up . That’s on the multi frequency detector that all would have been out by now. If nothing else can you say if it’s made its wa
  9. Hey guys, been awhile. Any news on Doc? I bought a goldscreamer from him in January...it's not working, and tried to get hold of him for a month. Not airing dirty laundry, seriously wondering if he is OK, and if so, anyone know how to get hold of him, besides the 2 numbers listed? Thanks, Ray
  10. Covid Stress Relief Read... Warning, There is some DUMB sarcasm in this post. When it comes to metal detecting, I have no issues with any country and or how dumb/smart we/they/you/me be. If I offend you, no worries, it won't be the last time either. We need to go back a few years for some to realize, some dumb facts.... I figured it out. Gold Monster 1000 - Remember when Africa was sent the Gold Monster 1000 and nobody else. We in USA were told it was designed for them people and it even came with an adaptor for the broom stick (I'm not joking). Yea that detector, the one wit
  11. Heck! my Simplex suddenly lost Sound & the days just started nicely after winter LOL I emailed Nokta Makro SERVICE CENTER in Missouri and they phoned me almost Immediately, He said I would only need the Control off the detector and it has a single screw holding it on the detector. I packaged it up & send it the same day. Several days later he called to say it's fixed & it is on the way back. I sent it Friday & got it backed Tuesday evening....... It's BaAAAck... Great to work "Andy" at the SERVICE CENTER Andrew O'Neal [Owner] Nokta Mak
  12. I see the Minelab GPX 4500 is being discontinued. If the price goes down is it worth it to pick one up or has what replaced it that much better? Perhaps a premium will now be asked for the remaining new GPX 4500's? Is now the time to buy??
  13. Back when I started detecting in the 70s there were pages full of detector manufacturers in the magazine. Frankly, because anyone could make a metal detector in their garage! For me at least it was obvious there were some people leading the way, and in the 1980s the "Big 5" were: Compass Fisher Garrett Tesoro White's Unfortunately things went south for Compass though the machines are well regarded even today. A brash newcomer arrived on the scene to replace them and so in the 1990s the Big 5 list changed: Fisher Garrett Minelab Tesoro
  14. Yesterday, in Russia, a minelab dealer (mdregion.ru) announced that the installation of telescopic rods, folding knots on Minelab Equinox would void the warranty. In this video (turn on subtitles): What does Minelab dealers says about this in your country?

  16. (Note: I singled out dealers but really anyone, past or present who's been in retail likely has some insight so this includes you. I'm not about excluding anyone but think some people who have been in certain shoes are better able to give realistic answers as opposed to idealistic ones.) This seems to come up all the time and although it sounds like a no brainer for the consumer, the fact that it doesn't (or seldom) happen makes me wonder if there is a good reason (besides squeezing every dime possible out of the users). I'd ask the manufacturers but most of them don't seem too willing
  17. I was thinking about maybe picking up another Fisher F19 but when I called the Mom and Pop dealer guy I like to do business with, and whom I had bought my last one from, he told me he no longer sold Fisher. Ok... well....I'll go to the next dealer I like. Went to his website...no Fisher. Looked up a third guy but it looks like he is gone. Notice the major online dealers still carry Fisher but the few guys I like to do business with don't. Probably goes along with the inability I have had in even buying Fisher from some dealers who only wanted to sell me XP or Minelab, even though I
  18. I’ve been getting the email from Minelab about this contest that will end tomorrow for a cap are T shirt . After that I’m sure a 18 wheeler will be coming down my street to deliver all the caps and T shirts I’ve won . I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve entered. I did tell them while they going to have to make that trip anyway go ahead and bring my 6000 with them. I’m like George Washington in I cannot tell a lie but I can stretch heck out of the truth.

  19. Garrett already makes security scanners.... now add thermal imaging looking for high fevers among those passing through. https://garrett.com/security/smartscan-system Garrett Rolls out SmartScan™ Integrated Health and Safety Screening Solution Garland, Texas (February 8, 2021) —Garrett Electronics, a design and manufacturing company specializing in security metal detectors, announced that it is now shipping orders of its popular new touchless SmartScanThermal Imaging system.

  22. At the time I post this there are still 3 days remaining on this auction and already the bidding has reached $61. I bought one of these (new) a couple years back for $10. (I may have had to pay shipping but no more than $5.00 for that.) I guess if you have a White's detector and need a battery holder you don't have many choices....
  23. From https://company-announcements.afr.com/asx/cda/d72645a4-716e-11eb-8e1f-ee060ef5e0c8.pdf February 18, 2021 Metal Detection – Recreational, Gold Mining and Countermine Minelab is the world leader in handheld metal detecting technologies for the recreational, gold mining, demining and military markets.

  25. It has been common knowledge among those paying attention that Nokta/Makro has been working on a new simultaneous multifrequency detector for some time now. The Simplex+ has been specifically stated as being the potential housing for the new unit when it appears. This post from 2/17/2020 reconfirms work on the new model: "Hello all... yes, the name has been chosen and the machine is in the works. Cannot confirm the release date as of today but hopefully I will be able to share more info further into the year. Hope this helps...." People often bring up patents as a reason why new mult
