Hello Everyone !!..... For almost 10 years I have been collecting Metal Detector schematics and or circuit board  photos . There are Many old discontinued Metal Detector models that were manufactured in large quantities , that are still in existance !! They might be in someones garage or hidden in a basement or Attic !! Broken or working they are wanted !! I have a list of the ones I would love to have or see again , close-up !!  If someone can take a clear digital photo of the circuit board or even post a schematic it would be Awesome !! This is for metal detectors only . I will try to post a picture to the list , if I have one for that model . Anyone can add to the list , the years are passing by , so lets try to recover or save history on some "Classic and forgotten Metal Detectors of the past ".................Regards........Eugene52

1. Whites Liberty Di
2. Tesoro Conquistador
3. Gold Mountain Cobra I
4. Very Rare Discovery Teknetics TEK S/T 6.92 khz

Hays Electronics MarkI Mark II TR Metal Detectors

The Hays Mark II detector, is a TR type detector that operates somewhere around 100 Khz in frequency.

Powered by a single 9 volt alkaline transistor battery, the Mark I-II has only one control, an on/off/ tuning control.

Adjustment is as simple as turning the detector on and rotating the control until a slight threshold signal is heard and begin searching. The control unit is made of plastic, and the coil is, 5.5 MI and 8 MII inches.

The Mark-1 Metal Detector was designed and manufactured by Bill Hays of Hays Electronics in 1962, using an 8-inch search loop, the first of that size on the market at that time. The standard size in 1962 was the 11-inch loop.

In 1963 Hays Electronics introduced the first 5.5-inch loop on the the mark-2 Metal Detector. It was very sensitive for small objects and it had a depth range of 30 inches on large objects.

Today about 70% of all mark-1 and mark-2 metal detectors are bought by utility companies. Most utility companies want an all-metal detector and have no need for a discrimination detector.

In sales the Mark-1 and Mark-2 metal detectors have sold over 70,286 machines as of December 23, 2001.

Excellent posting oRo , Nice professional presentation of important Metal Detector History !! This detector was bought by a bunch of "utility companies" across the country !! It was an all-metal mode Metal Detector , "no discrimination" . They used it as a great undergound pipe locator . A few are still for sale at pawn shops and surplus stores all over the country , like this photo I found from a army surplus store back east................Thanks again for posting .................Eugene52

 Used on an older sovereign. I took the meter apart and later when I went back to it, I somehow lost the wiring diagram I made for it. Thanks for the other stuff.
