Does anyone know what happened to Don or Terri that used to work there?

It was always a real treat to visit a family business, wish Jerry would have streamlined his operation like surface mounted boards and Whites like package in plug and play.

If he had, someone could just pop an old board out, pop in a new one for a flat fee and quick turn around times would have been standard and building and repairing would still be a smooth process.

The coils would still be a challenge but it appears Wayne may have that part covered.


Thanks for sharing the nostalgia photos with us

I wished I took photo's when started visit Jerry/ Dottie and crew in early 1980s. I aware that Don ok and retire after Jerry sold company , don't know ref Terrie . I recall visit Jerry at his home and all Squirrels would ran up and meet him at driveway after long day at work , Jerry loved animals and raised Squirrels that where hurt ect . On positive Wayne doing a great job making new coils and balancing ect. I have one new "Black' coil rock stable and all my one balanced in balance

Man never saw a white squirrel before? Those are 2 Legends rite there. Sickler was on another forum awhile back. He loved Nautys until He got too Old to swing them. He made up the pamphlets that they use to send with the Detectors. He likes a Machine it is a good one for sure as He tells it like it is.
