Product Description

Product Description

Detects metal in wood, drywall, paneling, tile, stucco, plaster, concrete, and other nonmetallic surfaces. Locates ferrous metal up to 4'' deep and nonferrous metal up to 2'' deep.

From the Manufacturer

The Zircon MetalliScanner m40 Handheld Electronic Metal Detector quickly and easily detects metal in wood, drywall, paneling, tile, stucco, plaster, concrete, and other non-metallic surfaces. It locates ferrous (magnetic) metal up to 4-inches (102 mm) deep and non-ferrous (non-magnetic) metal up to 2-inches (51 mm) deep. MetalliScanner m40 solves the very difficult problem of finding studs in lath and plaster walls. It works by finding the pattern of nails that attach the wood lath to the studs. MetalliScanner m40 finds plumbing, ductwork, rebar, nails, and screws in your walls, floors, and ceilings, and is great for scanning reclaimed lumber for hidden metal. FEATURES: MetalliScanner m40 has two scanning positions, each with a progressive LED display. As it approaches a metal object, the red LEDs progressively light from the bottom up. The top lighted blue coil and an audio tone indicate when a metal target is located.

Brand/make: I'm very glad I spent the extra $10 to get this one instead of the Little Wizard II. Zircon seems to be the industry leader in this sort of technology, and seems to be a brand I can trust and get good support from. Their website is well maintained. It's designed in USA; assembled in Mexico. I think it's a newer design than the Little Wizard II, since it was first released in April 2007, whereas the Little Wizard II product manual is dated November 2002.

Purpose: I bought this primarily for finding staples/screws/nails in old wood I want to reuse, but I'm sure I'll find other uses for it too, like finding things I drop, finding studs and nail lines, etc.

Size: It's a little bigger than I imagined it, but that's a good thing - my fears of it being delicate or likely to be broken were completely unfounded.

Battery: I only just got this, so I can't comment on battery life, but it's nice that it came with the 9-volt battery already installed and ready to use.

Broad/pinpoint usage: You can use this lying flat for doing a broad sweep, then turn it up and point it like a gun to pinpoint the exact area. That's really handy.

Proper usage: This is a sensitive, quality device. Like the directions say, if you move it around quickly changing its orientation, it will give you a false positive briefly, but used properly, it'll work great - just use a steady hand and don't twist it around quickly.

Lights/indicators: The scanner has a green "READY" LED under a four red LED "bargraph". This is duplicated on the other side, so you can conveniently see it regardless of orientation.

Pulled my hair out, literally, I am bald, trying to locate the studs in my 110 year old house with lathe and plaster walls, used every stud finder I had, and I do have a few, none worked as well as the metalliscanner m40, within a few minutes I found every stud in my living room, including me. (don't listen to what my wife says about that). ANYWAY I would recommend this product to anyone with my particular problem ( with the house not my wife). It also saved a planer blade by finding an embedded nail in a piece of reclaimed wood).

My house was built when Abraham Lincoln was president. All the studs are covered with lath and heavy plaster. There is a 3/8" thick grey coat with another 1/4" of finish plaster over the lath. This stud finder is fantastic, locating the studs accurately every time. I have tried Stud4sure, a powerful magnet that works well for traditional drywall but not lath and plaster and a number of other Zircon devices. None have worked until now. Thank you Zircon for recognizing the need and building a tool that works. If you need to locate studs in lath and plaster, this is the tool for you.

I bought the nail finder to do exactly that. I do Wind Mitigation inspections which requires a determination of the spacing of nails through plywood into wood trusses. The tool works as expected. I recommend it for this purpose. I also build furniture, so I will be using it to check for nails and metal in reused wood. I haven't had the oportunity yet to try this tool for this purpose.

I have been using this for several months and I am able to use it so that it is 100% correct all the time. How you use it and what you are trying to detect makes a difference. I use it to quickly scan the surface of wood for ferrous metals before I put it into a thickness planer. If a thin nail has been driven into a board and I am trying to detect it from the other side (detecting the pointed end of the nail), the Wizard needs to be within 1/2" of the end of the nail. If I am trying to detect a large mass of metal (like an I-beam :) it will detect it from 5+ inches away.

It gives many, many false positives (that is, indicates there is metal there when there isn't). The Wizard is constantly adjusting itself to accomodate the substrate the metal might be embedded in, which is always changing since you are moving the Wizard around. However how the device shows false positives is different than how it shows genuine positives (that is, metal that really is there). When I see false positives I move it back and forth over an area that doesn't have metal to let the device "set itself to 0" (i.e., the lights go out). Then slowly going back over the area in question will reveal the truth.

I am very happy with this device. I'm only giving it 4 stars because of the useless, too generalized, information given from the manufacturer about the parameters for which it will detect metal.

Purchased this item about 60 days ago after extensive shopping. Returned to Amazon within 30 days as the item was little more than an expensive toy. The only way that you could detect metal was by holding the detector 1" (one inch) away from metal, not within 3" as advertised. The scanner came without a 9 volt battery which was indicated by one favorable comment, although when I looked back in Amazon's ad, the battery was not mentioned. Thankfully Amazon promptly handled the return at no charge and refunded my purchase price. I am a professional woodworker and still looking for an affordable good detector for nails and/or metal found in recycled lumber to avoid wrecking planer and sawblades as well as my body. Will continue to purchase from Amazon because of their great return and shipping policy.
