    Sorry for letting you down, Wen. I have a friend who has several of them, so I just borrow one of his when I need it. Besides, you didn't ask! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    In retrospect, I guess you will have to tell us how well it works and what type you have used. I wouldn't have even thought of using the magnet bars to pick up nails, etc. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I use the kind you hang off the front bumper, and they work very well.

    What I do is pay the kids 10 for each nail they find with the medal detector. Just bury a few quarters out there to keep them looking for a longer time. Got rid of a lot of nails and other junk that way and the kids had fun too!

    If you can find an used Laser Printer toner cartridge, there is a magnet inside that works pretty well for nails. Run a wire through the middle and drag it around the yard. Depending on the cartridge they are 1 - 1 1/2" in diameter and 12 - 18" long.

    I like your idea best of all. Guess I will have to see how much Radio Shack gets for their metal detectors. I built a home made one once and it was not very sensitive. Yep at 10 cents a nail, $20 will get a lot of junk picked up. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img] [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]
