For fun I'll check out two or three other units I have on-hand, but I doubt any of them will reject the nail and respond all four directions on the button front under the nail. I'll try a Fisher F19 w/5" DD coil, a Makro Racer 2 w/5" DD coil, a Teknetics Mark 1 Ltd. w/7ΒΌ" Concentric coil and a White's Treasure Pro, but the only coil I have for it is the stock 10" DD

Some models tested earlier would give a good two-way response sweeping the length of the nail, but nothing when it was swept crosswise when then nail was on top of the button front.

With the 4 models listed here, 1 of them w/5" DD didn't work well when sweeping lengthwise, but did a little better crosswise but 'iffy.' More like maybe 3-out-of-4 hits and they were just so-so. Of these models 2 failed totally. The 4th, also using a 5" DD coil, could just reject the iron nail and produce two-way responses both lengthwise and crosswise, however not as well as the 5 models I initially compared that gave 4 very good audio hits.. Naturally it required a slow and methodical sweep and not a brisk sweep.

Oh well, it gave me something to do until I get this neck brace off on the 3rd and can drive to a real nail infested site. smiling bouncing smiley
