    PinPointer only $15.00 ??

    Hey everyone,
    I ran across this blog on another detector site--might give it a try myself.

    I was recently shopping at our local Harbor Freight tool store, when I saw a metal
    detector made for finding nails in wooden boards. This unit is only 81/2" long and 1
    1/2" wide. The head is 2 3/4" wide. I thought it might come in handy to pinpoint an
    object under the coil of a metal detector. I had no idea of the sensitivity of this unit but
    bought it anyway for $15.00

    I was very surprised to find out I could very accurately pinpoint small metal objects,
    even could sense copper clad BB's which I had a hard time finding with my eyes. This
    "Little Wizard II" Which it's called is light in weight but strong, has a thumb adjustment
    for sensitivity and a screw adjustment for course tune. It runs on one 9v battery with a
    good running time. My Grandson uses it in the back yard to find coins and nails etc.
    just by itself. I hope someone else might find this helpful as I do.

    Have fun

    Thanks for the link. Does this one buzz or beep? I remember reading about a pintpointer that buzzed instead of beeped, so that the operator wouldn't need to remove headphones from his main detector. Any reviews of this product? For 15 bucks, shoot...

    You're welcome!
    I don't know if it vibrates, but I'm sure it beeps. That's not the pinpointer I use... I have the Vibraprobe 570, which vibrates only.
    I know there are others who use the Cen-Tech, so I'm sure someone can give you a review of it on here.

    There is a thread on here somewhere where someone does an indepth test.

    I also have the 570 vibraprobe and one of these cheapos. It actually works pretty damn good. I was surprised. It only beeps, no vibrate.

    Well worth 15 bucks and I got it in a week. I hear people are having to be on a back order now for them.

    Good luck.

    I have one and have put it through the paces for a good dozen outings. I set it to the most sensitive and chance that only if I get a small target in the dug dirt piles. The lamp has come in handy a time or two. Still same battery for 4 months/ obviously not in continuous use. When you consider the price I don,t think I will buy another brand soon. Be sure to go to the store if you have one near, saves the shipping.

    Maybe I'll have to pick on up... I was actually just in Harbor Freight last night to pick up a machete for camping for only 5 bucks (with a sheath!)
    That store doesn't have all the brand names... but their products are pretty good quality, and their prices are even better (especially for our hobby)

    I own a construction company and some of my longest lasting tools came from there. And they are about 1/8 the price of my better stuff!
