Tools That You Need For Metal Detecting
Imagine yourself stepping out of your car onto the perfect spot for relic metal detecting. The old mansion site surely holds treasure, whether coins or relics of other sorts. All of a sudden, you realize that you forgot your digging tool! There are so many different tools for metal detecting that you can carry with you. Here is a quick overview of things that you need…
The first piece of equipment you need is, of course, a metal detector! Many times, a local sporting goods store will carry a metal detector or two. If there is not a local dealer near you, there are plenty of online sources. Some of the brands of metal detectors available are: Tesoro, Whites, Minelab, Garrett, Bounty Hunter, C-Scope, Fisher, and many others!
You will need extra batteries for your machine, to keep you hunting. A digging tool is very important. There are specially designed digging knives made for coin hunting available. You can also just use a trowel and shovel… just remember to fill your holes back in and leave the area as you found it. Next, a pouch of some sort to carry your finds in! A two-section carpenter’s bag works great for this, or you can buy a specialty design, or you can just use something that you have on hand.
That’s really all you need to start. It would be a good idea to invest in some headphones, so you can keep the signals to yourself in a public place, but you don’t have to.
So, now that you have the right tools for metal detecting, you should be able to have a much more successful outing, whether you’re just coin shooting, or relic metal detecting!
