Lumber Wizard 5 woodworking metal detector
The Lumber Wizard 5 woodworking metal detector is a wand type metal detector that is designed to alert woodworkers whenever a metal object such as a nail, pin, bolt, wire, staples, etc. are buried inside wood. By sounding an immediate alert, the user is able to quickly locate then retrieve the metal object so as to prevent injury or tool damage. A laser line indicator illuminates when detection events occur, thereby allowing user to easily see where metal is buried. Regular use of the device will help to reduce damages of tools and injuries.
New for 2019.... The Lumber Wizard 5 Laser Line is the latest version of Wizard Industries' flagship woodworking metal detector. A powerful precision hand-held metal detector with automatic tuning and a laser indicator designed specifically for woodworkers, It helps detect small metal objects hidden inside new or used lumber. The new version features easier one-handed use, with automatic calibration every time the unit is turned on, and better false-positive rejection. Undetected nails, screws or other metal fragments can damage expensive jointer, planer and saw blades. Flying metal can also cause serious injury. Easy to use, the Lumber Wizard 5 helps woodworkers prevent equipment damage and personal injury. The Lumber Wizard has received rave reviews for almost two decades from woodworkers and magazines across the country, and the new 5 version is even better!

A note about metal detectors and tuning:
Tuning is important as metal detectors are sensitive to ground balance (the mineralization content in the soil around us all) and the amount of humidity in the air.
Tuning allows the detector coil to concentrate on high-density metallic materials at close range instead of the metals in the earth. Keeping the tuning precise and doing it often helps to find more small metal pieces, therefore the Wizard 5 does its own tuning automatically each time it is turned on.
The difference in the Lumber Wizard 5 vs other types of wands is the ability to better control detection strength through precise automatic tuning. The Lumber Wizard is made to help detect wire, nails, screws, and small pieces of metal. Thus the importance of tuning often. Think of it as sharpening a blade automatically each time it is used!
