Whether it's an old embedded nail left over from an abandoned tree fort, or lead shot in a tree harvested from hunting grounds, hidden metal inside your lumber can present a danger to both you and your equipment. The Lumber Wizard™ 5 woodworking metal detector helps protect both you and your expensive tools and blades by detecting nails, screws and staples before you run them through your equipment. Just pass the handheld detector over your wood and it emits both audible and visible alerts—including a laser light—if metal is detected. This version features automatic tuning/calibration, meaning there is no need to tune it before use—a huge time saver that also ensures better reliability and more precise detection.

  • Laser line indicator and audio alerts help pinpoint the location of metal parts
  • Quick, one-handed operation with 6'' wide scanning area for fast scans
  • Improved detection pattern helps eliminate false alarms
  • Headphone jack lets you hear audible alerts using an earplug (not included)
