I recently purchased something I've desired for years. I got a swell metal detector at 40% off at Amazon. All this with free shipping too. When UPS delivered it yesterday, I excitedly assembled it and ran outside to test it and to learn how to use it. I was thrilled to make my first metal discovery! I found our old corn picker that has been parked in our woods for several years. After I finally found it I waved the detector about ½ inch over it and got a very loud positive tone, which indicated metal! I think metal detectors are great and I learned how to use it very quickly! I've been looking for our old corn picker in our woods for years and am so glad I finally found it with the help of my new metal detector!
After finding the corn picker, I decided to see how well it would find buried metal. I dug several holes with a shovel and finally found something that looked like a small piece of metal. I laid it on top of the ground and then got my new metal detector and turned it on and swept the small piece I had dug up and previously had laid on top of the ground. Sure enough it was metal! I guess I'm getting a little cocky because I learned how to use it so quickly and efficiently! Bah! Who needs to read the instructions! I figured out how to use it all on my own. I'm glad to know my thought patterns are not weakening due to old age like I thought!
The above picture shows my first discovery of the old corn picker thanks to my brand new metal detector. I can't wait to look for and find metal buildings, but will, no doubt, find and end up in a "mental" building instead thanks to my new "mental" detector. :0)
