I bought this metal detector about 4 years ago when starting to recycle some black walnut trim from our old farmhouse. I could see some exposed heads of the old steel spikes but was concerned about what I couldn’t see, and I didn’t want my planer to be the first to know. It performed beautifully, finding several hidden spikes, and I ended the project with my planer blades unscathed.
This isn’t a tool I use often, but it has helped me on a few occasions to find nails in other salvaged wood and metal objects I had dropped in the grass. I’ve even used it as a stud finder, as it does a great job finding the drywall nails or screws.
The wand comes in a nicely padded carrying case. I remove the 9-volt battery after each use to prevent battery leakage within the tool, itself. I’m still on the original battery.
To me it was a wise investment of $35.
