Little Wizard Metal Detector

Rutlands    Part No. 24902

• Perfect for detecting nails and screws before planing, routing or sawing
• No calibrating or guessing as it pinpoints metal instantly
• Works on all types of woods and particle board
• Detects nails and screws, staples and other metal objects
• Use to find studs inside a wall, by detecting the drywall nails

The little wizard is a precision hand held metal detector, perfect for scanning nails, screws or any metal object in recycled wood prior to planing or sawing. It will prevent costly blade damage, and prevent the workpiece from being damaged by chipped or broken blades. It can also be used to locate wood studs inside of walls by detecting the drywall screws.

Housed in a high impact plastic case the scanner operates off a standard 9 volt battery (not supplied). You simply switch the detector on, away from any metal objects and then scan in overlapping circles no more than a 1/4" from the surface, when metal is detected both a red LED signal appears and you hear a bleep tone from the inbuilt speaker. The total length of the Little Wizard is 9". ©

    Does not work for me. I need it to be able to detect metal in newly cut down tree at a depth of 2.5" to be able to saw planks that are 2" thick but it does not manage that.

    Excellent bit of kit. I work with reclaimed timber and have bitter experience of the damage that hidden pins and staples cause to blades. This now finds them for me before my blades do. The light display is a great idea as I don't always hear the bleep if someone is running one of the other machines.

    This Little Wizard has paid for itself in no time. Very easy to use and has saved my planer blades from hidden nails countless times. Cheaper than a new set of HSS planer blades. Buy one.

    Sadly no battery included (checked it does state there won't be one) however after rummaging through the kitchen drawers and finding one I was able to get it working. No issues with it at all, works great, just needs a little tuning
