Hi Fellows

I like to show pictures of what I found yesterday with my home-made LRL. I inserted inside the chamber of my LRL an Indian Head 1900 and I found at 400 feet away a copper stop valve. Of course, it could be a coin, but that let me know the dowsing works as long you know how to use it.

Copper does not rust. It can turn green, green/blue or green/brown. What you have is rusted. Hence iron on your sample whatzit.

Again, I don't think you're right. I has seen copper very rusted get out of the ground including Lincoln cents. If your statement is in base to prove that my LRL does not work, argue with somebody else. I have 30 years using LRL and MFD as hunter and always I find stuff with dowsing.

Had nothing to do with LDR. Take a small tack hammer to it and see if it's rust. Rust will chip off easily. Or stick it in some "Iron Out" or a similar rust removed. It won't hurt any metals otherwise. I frankly don't care about tech. I was looking at the item you found. Nothing more.

I mean it’s possible for there to be rust on it if there is iron on it. Or if it’s say...copper coated and the copper is worn off. But Smokey is right. Only Ferrous Metals can rust.

I don't think the handles on those faucets were copper, I think they were cast iron so it would be rusty.Great that your machine is finding you some targets.

People, you have to understand today, the most metal that coming to the market are alloyed with other metal, i.g. gold, silver, copper, etc. Most gold ring of 12K, 14K, 18K are alloyed. When you find a ring with your detector, your detector identify gold and another metal conductivity. The same happen with copper. Maybe that handle is not at all copper, but it has something with copper on it or around.

With 30 years using MFD and dowsing, I have no any intention to BS in this place just to support a hobby or method of search.

I've had similar Dowsing experiences. On one homestead I was dowsing with L-rods using Silver to signal with. I signaled one target and dug a terribly rusted knife. There was no Silver visable. It was either Silver plated at one time, or the Iron used to make the knife wasn't pure. Another example, I was out Dowsing by the Manistee river near me, using Gold to signal with. I had a target that didnt signal being a Meteorite, so I followed the signal line to the Gold.. Within a mile from where I signaled from was my target. It was the old Iron bridge, called Harvey bridge, built in 1906. When Dowsing with Elements, all targets with that Element react. Even if it's only Trace. The Iron used to make the bridge wasn't totally pure. Gold in trace amounts are in the Iron matrix. If I was to check, other Elements are probably in the matrix in trace amounts. Like Silver, Telleride, Copper. Just because it's not visable, doesn't mean it's not there.

It's not a matter if your LRL worked, you dowsed something it could be what you sensed just not the metal you sensed.

Your LRL is working great, i checked your picture, its hitting buried metal, you are on the right track, 99% of LRL will locate air signal, not buried metal yours, is locating ground signals, best i seen on a long time, don't Leason to no believers, you are doing it right. God Bless and Merry Christmas.

Yet you think copper rusts. Rust is Iron Oxide.
