Here's Another Beauty of a Find

White's Mini Master
Straight TR hip mount with a 6" search coil.
Came with a hard carry case.

This is one detector I was lusting over as kid. Couldn't afford to own one at the time when they first came out.
Recently managed to find a 1976 model of the Mini Master.
Excellent shape and works.

Did have to change out the OP AMP, and since I was inside, changed out all electrolytic capacitors, cleaned the pots and added a new battery pack.

End result, very nice operation, very smooth threshold, no drift.

Sven,thank you so much for posting this!!!! Im pretty sure that was my first detector,back in 78 or so!! I mowed lawns till I came up with $60 . I had the entry level whites,no disc. If thats not it,then there was one down from that.

My empire of dirt.

Wow. That detector is in really good shape. I would love to play with some of those older machines but i think i would need an electronic engineering degree to keep them going.

Always on the lookout for machines I haven't tried. Buy, sell, trade.
Also have pull-tabs and bottle caps for sale... $1.00 each. Tongue
