    How effective are the little wizard metal detectors? They seem to sound too good to be true for the price. Do they work well? Also they seem to have 2 models for less than 25 bucks, one has a sensitivity adjustment, the other does not. But they are so close in price. Are they worth it? If so, is the sensitivity adjustment important? The only thing that I have ever torn up because of a piece of metal are the blades on my power hand planer. But with my thickness planer now and the pain in the a** that the knives in the JP6010 are for ME to get set, i would prefer not to have the problem.

    I have the little wizard with sensitivity adjustment and it works great. I used it to check a couple hundred board feet of old barn boards. It takes some getting used to and it's a pretty slow process, but it works. Here is a small sample of the "hardware" it found.

        I bought a large airport type handheld metal scanner from radio shack (does not seem to be available in US) for $30 on clearance and I would not be without it now. It will find metal bits the size of a ball point pen ball on the other side of a 2" thick board, it has saved my knives many times.

          I have a 15% off coupon from rockler and was looking at the little wizard. The problem is that rockler only carries the little wizard, NOT the little wizard 2 with the sensitivity adjustment.

          For 3 bucks more it is worth the wait
