My Metal Detector.

How much fun is to have a Metal detector? Is a lot of fun! I did purchase a cheap one and I went to the backyard to find lots of treasures. Let's see how many treasures I found. (4/26/2007)

 

I don't even remember how much I paid for my metal detector, I think it was about $65.00 USD. It was made in China, is not a fancy one, but at least it will satisfy my curiosity about having one.

 

The Metal detector that I got have a power/volume control and "discriminator". Instructions are not really clear, so I just put some batteries on it and I went to the backyard. Without any knowledge how to use it, I started to follow the "buuzzzzz wheeeeoooo bzzzzzzzzz wheeeeeeeeeeeeee" sounds coming from the metal detector.

 

Once I located the spot where the sound changes, I started to dig, "I'm rich, I'm rich" I though.

 

rusted nail

 

Dang! I found a rusted nail. That is not treasure unless Abraham Lincoln used it to build a home. Oh well... Let's see what I can find.

 

"buuzzzzz wheeeeoooo bzzzzzzzzz wheeeeeeeeeeeeee".

 

screw

 

"I'm rich, I'm ri.... DANG! I'm not rich! this is a screw!."

 

"buuzzzzz wheeeeoooo bzzzzzzzzz wheeeeeeeeeeeeee".

 

aluminium thing.

 

Hmmm... I will be rich if the aluminium is expensier than diamonds but it is not. I'm not rich. let's see what else I can find.

 

 

DANG! What the heck? Another nail. Iron nails grows on the lawn??? I think there is no treasure here...

 

"buuzzzzz wheeeeoooo bzzzzzzzzz wheeeeeeeeeeeeee".

 

pecan

 

A Pecan??? It may containg lots of iron because it was detected by the Metal detector. Not a lucky day to find treasures... Let's keep moving...

 

"wheeeeeeoooo"...

 

coke cap or coke ring

 

"A Ring! I'm rich! I'm ri... what? I'm a foul!" This is an aluminium cap from coke cans.

 

dime

 

What is this junk? "OMG! It is a dime! I'm Rich! I'M RICH! MOM, I'M RICH!" - Finally, a coin. Just 10 USD cents, but at last I found something with value. Let's see what else I can find.

 

"wheeeeeoooeeeeooeeee wheee... bzzzzzzz..."

 

rock

 

A rock? How a metal detector can find a rock? Well, I guess it have iron on it. A meteor maybe? who knows. Looks like junk to me.

 

At the end of the day, I was not rich. If you don't believe me, looks how wealthy I am:

 

 

A dime, two aluminium pieces, a nail with a plastic hook and a rock with iron. All maybe worth of $0.12 USD.

 

Anyway, using the metal detector is really a lot of fun, exercise, and it helps to lowers the stress from everyday work. This experience helped me to learn how to use it and start the Metal detecting hobbie.
