Re: Survey Question: What metal detector do you own and use?

WM6, I have been building, modifying and servicing detectors for 55 years.

BTW, I do not have a Kruzer, but the principles below apply to any detector.

The one thing that caught my eye is that you said you ran the Kruzer at maximum sensitivity because there was no EMI, and it could not discriminate your big iron, even at a disc. level of 99. Of course it couldn't. These new machines are high gain and low noise, and the sensitivity can be turned way up, in a quiet environment, but that doesn't mean it is the optimal setting.

That big piece of iron would easily saturate the front end of the detector at maximum gain. The sensitivity should be set, so the iron *is* discriminated at a reasonable distance from the coil - then see if it can pick up the coin next to it.

I setup a test similar to yours with my Nokta Impact. I had a rusting giant square nail, about 10" long and 3/8" square. Put this next to a plain copper penny and was able to separate the targets - it required turning the sensitivity down to about 50 (half of maximum) so I could even pass the coil over this combination without overload.

Yes, but remember Rich(Utah) that you're going to have another new-to-you detector in a week or so.
