My uncle got out his old Whites coinmaster and Minelab GT16000 this morning for me to have a look at it and play around with. What im wondering is, what were the old whites machines like to use? And how did you use the ground balance switch?

I see its been a while since you posted this question. Was hoping since then you might of learned a little about the coinmaster. I picked up a CM 2900. Are there any bennifits or any applications to use a VLF for gold in a high mineralized area? Or is it just old and out dated?

The CoinMasters cost more in battery's than the things are worth, even in a playground situation
looking for coins, these days the $80 Ebay jobs leave them for dead in depth sens and running costs.
i would give it to the younguns 5 - 8yrs olds to play with...
Try to get a couple of Hunjee for it and then look for an old Whites GM2 or an original Fisher GoldBug
or GB2 and you will be miles ahead.

*************The Whites 5000 Coinmaster can be fitted with a 12 volt slimline rechargable (gel) battery from Jaycar(also 12v charger).....simply remove the existing battery compartment by drilling the rivets out that hold it in, then slot in the rechargable.....BINGO !

There are a lot of Coinmaster models. Which one do you have?
They were called Coinmaster for good reason.
The 5000 and 6000D were good coin and relic detectors but the disc mode depth was not fantastic by todays standards but at the time they were the ducks guts and I found a truck load of coin with my 6000D and 6000DI Series 3, I still have the series 3 and it is still a good performer with good depth and accurate target ID in both Disc and All metal mode.

My wifes Whites 6000d was a good gold detector in the early 1980s we mod the ground balance switch and made it a self adjusting threshold {SAT} I used to uses it when the wife had to stay back at the van in the mornings. I found 19 ounces one morning with it, and had to use the Garrett deepseeker in the afternoons. I would not recommend it to-day in areas where PI machines have been.
