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!
