Like any specialized tool this detector requires proper tuning and understanding of how to properly use. It's a Wizard but it is not magic!!! It's a real life metal detector that works very well when used as suggested. So please read and understand the directions. We are here 100% if you need. For Best Detection Requires NEW 9 volt battery with at least 8.6 volts. We suggest Duracell (not lithium batteries). Please do not just grab a battery out of your drawer and flop in. Save yourself time and detect metal with a brand new shiny full strength Duracell (non lithium) battery. A fresh battery is your best friend in metal detection!!!

The Little Wizard is a precision hand held metal detector designed especially for woodworkers. Perfect for scanning recycled wood for screws and nails before planing, routing, sanding or sawing, and other forms of metal detection.

To use the Little Wizard II put in a fresh, quality brand 9 volt battery (we suggest Duracell). Turn the unit on, tune it and get familiar with its detection with bare metals. The sweep in a crosshatch manner over wood. We suggest to scan both directions and always scan between cuts.
The Little Wizard is widely used by woodworkers everywhere.
It's small size and unique detection strength allow it to be used to quickly detect damaging nails, screws and other dangerous metal buried inside of wood. The Little Wizards adjustable sensitivity makes pinpointing easy and accurate. The Little Wizard precisely indicates metal by emitting a high pitch beep tone and illuminating an array of LED's.

Inventors Bio

 I'm Billy Carmen inventor of the Little Wizard Woodworking Metal Detector and founder of Wizard Industries. I created the Little Wizard in 1999 as a tool to help  woodworkers find buried metal located inside recycled wood. Commonly there are nails, screws, barbed wire, staples, bullets and other buried metals that can damage or destroy woodworking tools such as planer, router and saw blades.

The Little Wizard caught on in the woodworking market as a needed tool right away and a few months later I developed the Lumber Wizard (a larger and stronger version of the Little Wizard. From 1999 over the course of the next three years  I went on to develop several other products that are now the driving force behind 4 brands of products under the Wizard name (Wizard, ShopSpecs, Secure Quick and Jolivete).

As our products and brands continued to grow from 1999 to 2001 I found several efficient, inexpensive and effective ways to get products into their marketplaces. In 2001 I began building a business methodology and suite of technologies that allowed other small brands to use the same product exposure and retailer penetration methods I used for my own produycts. In 2003 I discovered that my unique business methodology could be patented. In 2004 we filed fora U.S. patent for our business methodology and technology and in 2007 we were granted a U.S. patent (#7,249,064) for the way in which we do business.

During the course of building our own product lines from 2003 to today we have invited hundreds of companies to become a part of our product distribution so they too could experience the same type successes I experienced from the use of our unique business model. Today hundreds of companies have their products in our system and are using the business model to help move their products through our channels. 

So there ya have it! The short story of who I am. To see more about the unique system we've built and the amazing people that are as much a part of it as I see SmallBrandNation.com. To see more of the products I've created that are sold in retail stores around the planet see Wizind.com

Thank you for your interest in my story!
