Everyday people are running, walking, and enjoying being outdoors. Unfortunately, while enjoying outdoors, a lot of people tend to lose jewelry, keys, coins, and other precious objects. The truth is that there is a broad range of items which are lying outdoors just waiting to be discovered. The best way to find them is to use a metal detector. For some travelers and outdoor enthusiasts, metal detecting is a hobby. The first metal detector was made in the 19th century. It used concepts of magnetism and electricity; the metal detector helps find where the metal objects may reside. Metal detecting is quite fun and a lucrative hobby that can be enjoyed by people of any age. This post helps you learn about metal detecting and metal detectors:


History of metal detectors Alexander Graham Bell made the first metal detector. Over the years, metal detectors have evolved over the years. This is greatly attributed to electricity. Graham was motivated to find a bullet which killed President Garfield. Although it never found the bullet that killed. Nevertheless, he is credited with inventing the first metal detector. The early metal detector could only detect metals that were just one or two inches. However, this has greatly changed, and the modern metal detectors can even detect small coins and precious items that are buried deep.


Buying the right metal detector The modern metal detectors cost between $300 to over $1000. You should note that their quality varies greatly. For instance, some are designed to be hot on silver and gold while others are good at detecting coins as their primary target. Some exhibit excellent water resistance properties and others are suitable for freshwater and others salt. If you figure it out, you get what you pay for. For instance, if you have an inexpensive metal detector, you are likely to dig but recover trash. On the other hand, if you have a top range detector, you are likely to be productive even on your first trip. In fact, a poor-quality detector is not going to penetrate deep, and you are likely to find shallow trash.


Types of metal detectors There are three major kinds of metal detectors on the market. Moreover, there are several manufacturers across the world. Pulse induction detectors, Multi-Frequency detectors, and VLF detectors. You will find certain models which are adaptable for land water, hunting, and beach. Let us have a quick glance at the different types of metal detectors:


VLF detectors They are known as Very Low-Frequency detectors or motion detectors. You can use them both in salt water and fresh water and even on a dry beach. They are quite erratic when they touch salt waters. For them to locate a target, the coil must be in motion. Pulse induction detectors These are best in salt water. In fact, they can even pick up deepest targets. The good thing about them is that they can ignore salt which is quite cumbersome for metal detecting on the ocean. However, they do not discriminate junk and iron without losing quality signals.


Multi-Frequency detectors These are a bit expensive, but they offer the best metal detecting capability. In fact, they can scan a wide range of frequencies. This makes it adjust them to any soil composition. This means that they can find more targets as compared to motion or pulse detectors. Metal detecting tips and techniques Using a metal detector to achieve top performance increases the likelihood of locating targets requires the user to have certain basic skills. The following are some of the skills that can be useful in metal detecting:


Sweeping This is a basic metal detecting technique. It is the first skill an operator should master. It involves moving of search coil from one side to another across the ground. It is helpful in finding buried objects. Digging the object After pinpointing the target, you should clear surface material and check again for the signal. If the signal disappears then, the metal is amongst the surface material. Keep on searching until you find the target. When the target is near, the signal is louder.


Treasure hunting tips using a metal detector Relic, coin, and treasure hunting in the park, at the beach, or around your homestead are some of the most rewarding hobbies. Across the world, several objects are buried for centuries. Treasure hunters can unearth relics from past century such as badges, buttons, war memorabilia, and artifacts. These things can be valuable items and can be worth thousands of dollars. Where to hunt It is advisable to hunt in patronized areas like parks, beaches, picnic areas, and showground. In fact, even your backyard can give you valuable treasure. You should take into account the age of your homestead and people who have lived there before you.


Your backyard It the past, it was common to bury valuables and large amounts of money in the backyard. This was considered to be safekeeping mission. Rings, necklaces, and other pieces of jewelry got lost due to gardening. Thus, you can find even gold necklaces and diamond wedding rings. In fact, most of them got lost before the invention of modern metal detectors. They are just lying in your garden awaiting discovery by you.


The beach The beach is a nice place to hunt treasure and coins. This is because a lot of people go to the beach. Since sand is the only soil at the beach, small objects get lost easily. Fingers shrink when placed in cold water and rings just slip off. The same thing happens to watches and other pieces of jewelry. A metal detector makes it very easy to retrieve these objects from the sand.


Join a club Nowadays, there are metal detecting clubs and groups that organize routine treasure-hunting trips. These clubs look for designated areas that are known to have buried valuables. Contestants are offered a time limit to recover valuables. The good thing about metal detecting clubs is that they help one improve his or her skills.
