I bought her back in the 'lifetime warranty' days, I've had her about 12 years I think, and 2 weeks ago, I sent her in, she's been 'showing her age', needing some overhaul......They replaced EVERYTHING, except for the headphones (they were upgraded), and the stems/rods are original. They even replaced the armrest. I asked them to 'check out the inner workings', I got : A new complete control housing, with EVERYTHING-insides, and controls, battery door and gasket and battery holder replaced and housing mount, too, along with a new 8" coil and hardwired cable, and new coil mount plastic bolt and wingnut, and tension washers for the coil mount.... The cost?? A $25.00 service charge, plus I paid the insured shipping there. Fisher really stands behind their 'lifetime warranty', Amen!!:usaflag::fisher::biggrin::thumbup::wave:

First Texas acquired the nearly (or completely) bankrupt Fisher Labs in 2006. Dave Johnson - formerly Chief Engineer at Fisher, left Fisher and worked for Tesoro and Whites designing detectors. Dave had later been hired by Tom Walsh, CEO of FT. Tom sent him to Fisher to look it over as a potential acquisition. Dave has posted that after he went out to Los Banks and looked at the state of things there, he advised Tom not to buy Fisher. Tom decided to go a ahead and now First Texas designs and manufacturers detectors under the Fisher, Teknetics (including Ameritek) and Bounty Hunter brand names.

Lietuva confused me for a minute, but Wikipedia saved me - Lithuania - also once called Lett-land in English.
