    Metal Detectors for milling

    A friend just acquired a slightly used bandsaw mill. I already know he's willing to saw some logs I have at no cost, so I'd like to buy a metal detector for him to use with the mill.

    I didn't see a recent thread, so what's your favorite and why? or - what brands to avoid?

    Thank you!

    there of course a difference in metal detectors but having used a few , I think the biggest thing is getting used to which ever model you choose, having someone hiding metals and you find them as practice I think should help. The Garrett metal detector I last bought said in the instructions they suggest practicing for days to get used to the way it works.

    Wagner makes some very top end metal detectors that will scan deep into a log, but they are not cheap.

    Garrett’s seem to be the most popular in the sub $200 market.
