    Saw the add;

    In 83 I inherited two full sets of playboy, one read and the other stored. At that age I had no use for paper chicks, never had a use for it, I have always been hands on like the real think. But the adds they used to take in those, beit Cessna, J Walker, Chewing Gum, Beer; they all blended in fairly well into the magazine. But Razor companies or this company always had these adds that appeared they let a full on tardid kid illustrate.

    Just never fit in, and seriously chewing gum does not fit in either but their adds sure where not sticking out this bad.

    But yeah, I looked at the adds, the cardboard posters and even the added news papers adds that could be removed in 66.

    The JET in Jetco stands for John E. Turner. He created Jetco in the 60's with a BFO circuit taken from a magazine article. Eventually, Turner bought Bounty Hunter and Teknetics out of bankruptcy and sold them to First Texas Products. I now work for that company. Turner is still living but in poor health, I've been trying to get an interview with him for several months for a book I'm writing.

    I also collect vintage detectors, so if you decide you want to sell that one let me know. It will go on the wall in the Engineering offices at FTP.
    Thanks Carl, I knew it was an old timer, do you have a rough idea of when it was made?

    If you do get it up and running you could do a modification to make it a better machine by adding arm cuffs from arm cuff crutches would make using it more comfortable.Unless you wanted to sell it as all original to a collector.
