All the Great Metal Detecting Caches Haven’t Been Found!

It seems like our world gets smaller every day. Centuries ago, our world was filled with mysteries and exotic places most people had never seen and had only read about in books.

Digging These 5 Metal Detecting Shovels!

You need a metal detector to give you a good target, but once you’ve found that signal, you’ll need more than your detector to retrieve it. You’ll need sturdy hand trowels, digging knives and shovels at your disposal.

You don’t want to try to get by with the rigid plastic hand trowels you see advertised for a dollar each. On the surface, this might sound like a great deal. You could buy a handful of these and keep them in your vehicle or in your metal detecting bag and you’ll always have one handy when you need one.

You should scratch that plan. I’m living proof those hand trowels won’t work for metal detecting. I used those for more time than I care to admit when I first started detecting. I could only dig three or four inches into softer soil with them. Continue reading

The Intey metal detector is a good option for beginning detectorists who don’t want to shell out a lot of money to get an introduction to the world of metal detecting. For a small investment, Intey gives you a decent entry-level machine that will acquaint you with the basics of metal detecting.

What It Offers

The Intey detector offers two modes for you to use – all metal and discrimination mode. As the name implies, the all metal mode will find every type of metal that passes underneath your metal detector.

It will alert you with a beep every time, whether that metal is gold, silver, an aluminum can, or a worthless nail.

If you turn on the discrimination mode, however, it can help you weed out less desirable signals that you might not want, like iron. Continue reading
