    Lumber Wizard III--does it do the job?

    I am seriously considering ordering one of these. Do any of you have/use one? Do you like it? Is it reliable? Would you buy it again?

    Mine lives on top of my jointer, it has paid for itself several times over!

    I would buy it again in a heartbeat!

    Thanks guys! Rockler has it as the Deal of the Day at $59.99. Seems like a good deal to me; I just ordered it.

    I use one every time I run rough stock thru my planer. Aset of 25" planer blades are over $100. So far the wizard has found several nails and a few slugs. Buck shot I dont mind as it is soft.

    Works for me, As was previously said, has paid for itself repeatedly. Doues need to be recalibrated often, I use the wires in my chest... I rub it across my chest where the surgeon lift those wire stiches, If it reads them then it reads any near by metal. If not then turn the knoob until it does.
