Title: New QED Variant released
Post by: Goldman on Monday October 7 2019 20:35:21 AEDT PM
Hi all,

Howard has introduced to the world a new PL2 model variant. This appeared for the very first time at the ‘bash’ at the weekend.

This one uses the whites tower handle, which for the first time has allowed the front control box wiring to be routed fully within the handle.

The end result is a very clean looking, very well balanced QED that was very well received by people at the ‘bash’.

Cheers Goldman

Looking good!, would the whites s bend shaft not allow for concealed wiring though?

It is possible.
A rectangular hole needs to be cut and a matching rectangular tube welded in. The screen/control box would then snuggly fit on the outside of the tube to keep water out. I don't have the required tools but maybe Whites could do a batch for a reasonable price.

If you look closely at the arm cuff you will see it's not the standard White's part. The cuff and the adapter that locks the box to the handle are now all one 3D printed part. It still uses a standard sash.

What sort of crap is this Doug? Someone posts a photo on PA and you crack the sads. No wonder you attract criticism from all direction. Don't you want the QED to be promoted? Grow up.
PS Spelling mistake. The word is there, not their.

All is good.  I did wonder if it was Ok or if a link would have been better.  I have asked the PA mods to remove and I can post a link to the AEGPF thread instead.

I understand there have been issues in the past with other forums and unfortunately that just seems to be an ongoing saga the world over on any type of forum/social media. 

Whether it be the QED, prospecting, picks, headphones or whatever, please understand that my goal is to simply learn for myself and also assist others where I can.   Posting the image on PA was done for no other reason. 

Cheers, NE.

From my observations Doug, you got a fair run on PA and it was your fault that you over stepped the mark. These petty grudges that you display do nothing to enhance your cause, and as a consequence the QED suffers because of your childish petulance.
I understand that things have not been easy for you of late, but to remain bitter and twisted rather than rise above old animosities shows that the lessons of life have passed you by. You are not the only one who has had the odd kick in the guts.
When you finally cash in your chips, it would be nice to think you had more friends than enemies, but that is entirely up you.

Opinions are like bums everyone has one!
As for a kick in the guts try coping with having being diagnosed with cancer and also being a carer for a wife with Alzheimers!

Doug, I was aware of your situation, and people close to me are aware of mine. I try not to let these things turn me into a twisted wreck. Your choice.


Title: Re: New QED Variant released
Post by: bugwhiskers on Wednesday October 9 2019 15:34:35 AEDT PM
What a contrast, the PMAV don't want to know about the QED despite it being in the best interests of it's members and prospecting forums are fighting over pics of it being posted.

I was made aware of the copyright issue and instantly took a new picture with both handle options which was duly posted on PA.

Can we say AMEN?

I have plenty of friends in the fly fishing community who i respect and they respect me. Outside of this what you see is what you get and if people don;t like it well that's just tough!
When I am  just a pile of of ash who will care I certainly won;t!!! At the moment my focus is on other things and i am not going to get into great arguments  over this matter.
I have  given the person a choice  of 2 options and its up to them which  option they take and they are aware of the consequences  from one of the options!

I have asked PA to remove the pic as Howard has asked.

Sorry but the childish bullshit continues obviously. All over a pic that others are using in a positive manner!

If people wish to express these two options you wont get any comeback from me. Im just not the type of person to live on my knees to appease others.

Ill remove myself from this forum as i dont see it being worth it.

Cheers all.

Al.

Well, there you go Doug. Al, who has been a great promoter of the QED, who set up the Facebook site for QED, and was only trying to do the right thing, has left your forum. Maybe you should stick to fly fishing, as you sure aren't making a lot of friends in the prospecting scene.
Both you and Howard need to get over this anti Minelab rot and get on with what is left of your lives.

Yep. Time for everybody To take a few deep breaths and get on with the business of making, marketing, selling and finding gold with this unique detector. Life is indeed too short to be wasted on this counter productive cr-p - - -

I apologize for shooting from the hip. My failure.

Yes Al (blip) you can't leave.  If somethings bothering you it's best to just ignore it, works for me after all it's just a few words on your screen.

The QED's become a great detector and constantly evolving to be better, your enthusiasm for it and willingness to help people using it by spreading information about it via Facebook and expressing your views on it is a valuable contribution to the QED community and it's users.

Yeah yeah and yeah. You guys are right. Reg you are right about JR. voice of reason!

I dont choose to leave a site due to a dummy spit just that we sometimes have enough in our lives to deal with without adding to it.

Guys, internal bickering is counterproductive to the good of the QED, not to mention our own health. I know i can be a pain in the arse for Howard and Brian at times as i can take things a tad too far but better me than someone associated with QED i spose. I can call out tards when they cant! Just that I believe in Howard and his cause. Howard will call me sometimes to tell me to tell me to pull my head in or give me tips and advise. You wouldnt get this from any other manufacturer.

One thing i like about you Reg is you DO shoot from the hip. Its a great attribute. Dont change. Some wont like it but thats their problem.

Howard gets stuck in the middle at times poor bloke!

Anyway, its been a couple of weeks since ive swung my Whites handle. Ill do that this arvo with the NF20”
