If you are in the market for a metal detector for wood, this is a good one. While the calibration is kinda tricky, once you get it set, it detects metal pretty good.

One nice feature is that this offers three cues when finding metal: Sight, Sound and Vibration! When metal is detected, the light changes from green to red, a beep sounds, and you can even choose for the handle to vibrate. Unlike the Little Wizaed, the Lumber Wizard works! I feel safe to trust my planer, jointer or bandsaw to wood I check with this. It is well worth the seemingly pricey price tag at $100, but find it on sale at Woodcraft or Rockler for about 50! When the 100 seems too pricey, consider what your planer and jointer blades cost, coupled with the time and effort to change them. I use recycled wood a lot, and this pays for itself. I only gave it 4 stars due to the minor dificulty in initial setup!

i think you will be happy with this product!

God Bless,
Hawg
