End of a Era at Deben Ferret Finders.

After 45 years Deben the makers of the Origional Ferret Finders, Terrier Finders & bleeper collars have decided to stop manufacture of these products.
MacEoin General Merchants Ltd have taken the last of the stock available and once this is gone unless a buyer for the product range comes along that will be it.
This is a huge blow to the fieldsports industry in Ireland as these were a very popular product.

The link below goes to whats left in this range.

The leather collars & spare beeper collars for both ferret & terrier locators are included in this range so spare collars will not be available very soon.
While we bought what stock was left at Deben this was not a large amount and we would expect to sell out before Xmas on this entire range.

Surly it could'nt be that hard to get replicas of the old grey box manufactured their basically only a radio,in the times we live in now seems very simple technology.

It would be great if someone made them or bought this design from Deben.
We are down now to under 25 pieces of the terrier & ferret finders.
Spare locator collars are nearly all gone aswell.

Only 6 locators left now and a small quantity of locator collars for terrier and ferret.
At present we have plenty spare leather collars for both ferret and terrier.

I bet if he does it will incompatible with the orange box,a grey style box with a search and locate on it would be good with out all the annoying peeping and lights.

Hard to beat the old grey box. Yes, the new locator is meant to be excellent, and I recon it wondmt be compatible with the Deben stuff. Deben are aware of the new product, but still trying to sell their company.
