    Comments about Little Wizard II Metal Detector :

    Recently acquired some old barn lumber 3 X 10 hickory boards. After a couple of the nails broke while removing them, I decided to go pick this up before I plane the boards down. Does not read through 1/2" deep! I held it on the face over a nail in the end of the board which it would not detect a visible nail. I adjusted tuning multiple times.. This is garbage, very surprised Woodcraft has this in their inventory.

    Comments about Little Wizard II Metal Detector :

    Took it out of the package, put a 9v battery in it and without further fooling around, began to scan for nails in a prize piece of 1" x 20" x 14' old growth pine, from 1860. In about 10 minutes I had found 13 embedded square nails, some broken off and invisible, others hiding just below the surface. I could detect the nails from either side of the board, very easily - both beep and LED blinking. Easy to adjust sensitivity. Didn't get around to tuning it since it worked well out of the box. Very high value for such an inexpensive device. Looks like it's reasonably well made.

    Comments about Little Wizard II Metal Detector :

    I bought this after I destroyed a bandsaw blade after hitting a nail in a piece of lumber. I would have liked its bigger brother but it was priced a lil to far out of reach. The lil wizard was on sale for [$] and for that price I decided to try it. Once you have it set right it does a great job. I test it first on a piece of lumber with a known nail in it then go to work scanning.It works great and has saved me so far.

    Comments about Little Wizard II Metal Detector :

    The wizard finds even small bits of metal. It doesn't sweep a large area, but for occasional us it works fine. The price was right too. Much cheaper that new or resharpened blades.
