I know, I know… this isn’t the strongest metal detector in the world, but it may be powerful enough for you to go search for lost coins, rings and maybe urban treasure around your town?

Personally I would attach the metal detector to a pole so you don’t have to hunch over and hurt your back. Check out the tutorial and let me know what you think.
