Yes, indeed, sworn to secrecy!!!

Iron Nail Test #4 does use a US 5¢ coin, but that's all that will be disclosed now. NO MENTION about the Size, Shape, Length, Thickness or Number Of Nails used in Test #4., or all the targets positions.

Just an educational tool to realize the impact Iron, and in this case as it relates to Nails, can have a devastating effect on detector performance afield. The ONLY requirement I have is that people use their detectors and coils as adjusted to take on the Iron-Infested old ghost towns we are going to hunt. For Nail Test #4 they can stand in any position they want and sweep over the unseen Test Sample from the left and from the right. I'd like to hear 2 good, dig-worthy hits on this test.

By the way. I took on Nail Test #4 yesterday afternoon before I boxed my Vanquish 540 up to ship to the service department. No, it didn't handle that test, either. Only Low-Tone audio response as we expect from Iron Trash. I didn't check all of my current detectors, but using some of those I have in my Den and Vehicle, and using the search mode adjustments I normally would, I have 3 detectors that easily passed the test. So it is possible that someone using a brand and models like I used will also have good results. We'll see come Outing time.

It's just after 5:00 AM and I have a little time before I head out for a little detecting, so maybe I'll go check a few more detectors I have around to see if that number is greater than '3' that pass.thinkingeye rolling smileythinking
