    Sand Scoops and Aluminum beach shovels

    I have been playing around in the shop,I am living at the beach now and we have had some warm days which reminded me I have a hobby. I got a friend interested in metal detecting so I decided to make up some scoops.Trying different ideas and testing them out to see what works and what does not.The mesh is hardware cloth and I don't like it,I priced welded wire mesh stainless and I don't like the price of that very much.I made a big bertha aluminum scoop as well but my friend is borrowing it today.Any ideas on affordable wire mesh? The big feed scoop looking one had 1/2" perf holes and I drilled them to 5/8" so they still have the same spacing which makes the surrounding metal thin and it works really well.

    Hey, those are really nice!! You did a fine job on them...

    Bran <><
    Rom. 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;

    Rom. 10:10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
