Words can hardly describe the success we experienced with "the little wizzard". We purchased it for the purpose of locating metal studs 2-3 inches behind stucco. We had over 200 feet of canvas awnings to mount. The contractors and subs were amazed as we located stud after stud. Things were going well and then one of my employees dropped "The Wizzard" off a 12ft. ladder. To everyone's amazement she kept on ticking even after taking such a licking. I recommend "The Wizzard" to all contractors. Eugene L. Evans

Review from Online Tool Reviews.com

We all know how expensive good quality blades are to buy these days. Imagine a new $100 circular saw blade or a nice set of 15" planer blades being destroyed by a stray nail or piece of metal buried deep in a piece of recycled hardwood you picked up from a demolition yard or second hand at a garage sale. Such foreign objects hiding in your lumber can easily be missed by the eye, or not seen at all. Search the net and you can find countless stories of such tragedy on forums that will soon change the way you protect your woodworking blades.
Of course, the answer to the problem is to own and use a metal detector. They come in all shapes and sizes from security guard types, to your floor stand or fixed models to the long pole seated models you see people on beaches with. Some of these are a little overkill, and rather expensive for most home or enthusiast woodworker's needs.
Today we are going to take a look at a light, portable hand held unit from Wizard Detectors called the "Lumber Wizard" and see how well it performs in the common woodworkers workshop!

My 19 month old son swallowed two office staples!

I had seen your product, the little wizard metal detector in woodworking catalogs, but I'd never had a use for it until my 19 month old son swallowed two office staples. The doctor said to let the pass naturally, however we did have to find them once they came out just to make sure. The first thing I thought of was your product, and sure enough, they identified the diaper with the staples no problem through the diaper and associated organic matter. These things were tiny, so I'm very confident using it to detect metal in salvage lumber prior to planing.
