Metal detectors work by generating a magnetic field that interacts with metallic objects. When a metallic object is detected, it disrupts the magnetic field, which is then detected by the metal detector's sensor.
To locate metal inside of wood, a metal detector is passed over the surface of the wood. If there is metal present in the wood, the magnetic field generated by the metal detector will be disrupted, and the metal detector will emit a signal to indicate the presence of metal.
Metal detectors can locate metal objects within wood up to a certain depth, depending on the type of metal detector and the strength of its magnetic field. However, some factors can interfere with the detection of metal inside of wood, such as the type of wood, the thickness of the wood, and the presence of other objects, such as nails or screws.
It's important to note that metal detectors are not foolproof, and they may not detect all types of metal or objects. Therefore, it's still important to visually inspect the wood for metal objects before using power tools, such as saws or planers, that could be damaged by coming into contact with metal.
Both the Lumber Wizard and the Little Wizard are reliable and easy to use handheld metal detectors that are specifically designed for woodworkers. They are useful tools for identifying any hidden metal objects in reclaimed wood, ensuring that woodworkers can work safely and effectively.
