Teknetics Delta 4000 Review
(By Mark Ellington)

Teknetics History


Teknetics - was founded in 1983 and became part of the First Texas Products family of metal detectors in 1989. The Teknetics brand has always been known for the hottest performance of the era; never ones to rest, our engineers set out to redefine the industry performance standard in the early 2000's. The result of that effort was the acclaimed T2, followed on by the complete new line of Teknetics detectors.

Our engineers started with a clean slate to redefine state-of-the-art. Our modern user interfaces are easier to learn to use properly than any other high performance detectors on the market. Easier to learn means faster to master and more performance in your hands, in the field, in less time than imagined possible.


The Teknetics legacy continues and we hope you will join in on the fun.

Fisher History

"Fisher Research Labs - was founded in 1931 by Dr. Gerhard R. Fisher, the world renowned engineer and inventor who was the first to receive a patent for the metal detector. From its simple beginnings in Fisher’s garage, Fisher Research Labs is a made-in-America success story. The world’s oldest metal detector business, Fisher Labs uses the latest in technology to build the most trusted products in the industry." - more here

Fisher "M-Scope" (1946-47)

The M-Scope was manufactured by the Fisher Research Laboratory, Inc., of Palo Alto, California. Designed for uranium prospecting, it came with a shoulder strap and a GM detector at the end of a 36” “walking stick” probe. The latter eliminated the need to bend over to inspect ore and it made it easier to access hard-to-reach places. The wooden case which protected the electronics from rain and dust, had a hinged top that when opened allowed access to the controls.

The meter scale, which goes from 0 – 100 in arbitrary units, is unusual in that it reads from right to left with the resting position of the needle at 100.  The only control, aside from the on/off switch, is the audio volume control.  

Detector: glass wall GM (clear glass and cylindrical copper cathode)

Range:  one scale, 0 – 100 in arbitrary units.

Audio: speaker and headphones

Size:   5” x 9.5” x 9.5”

Batteries: two 1.5 volt and one 67.5 volt

Two mysterious aspects of the M-Scope are its name and the patent number (2,066,561), both of which are identified on a plate affixed to the lid of the box. The patent, issued to G.R. Fisher in 1933, is for a metal detector known as the "Metalloscope.” My guess is that the company abbreviated this to "M-Scope" and for some unknown reason (probably a lack of imagination) decided to apply this term to a variety of their products including their portable radiation detectors. In the early 1950s, Fisher produced a very similar instrument that used a GM walking stick. This instrument, the Model C-16,  was also referred to as the "M-scope" but it had a metal case rather than a wooden one like the "M-scope" in the collection..

This particular example was used by a prospector in the Maryville region of east Tennessee.

The 'Legend' Mr Dave Johnson

I have only been in the hobby a short time when compared to many of the seasoned hunters in the USA however it did not take me long to find out who Dave Johnson is and what he has done for metal detecting around the world - Mr Johnson has been the man behind many of the top metal detector released by various manufacturers in the USA. He is now the Chief Engineer at First Texas and works with a very talented team of Engineers. I personally look up to Dave J as anyone addicted to this hobby would, with respect and awe.  Please take some time out to see what this man has done for the metal detecting manufacturers & the many treasure hunters worldwide........
