These can get you all sorts of confused. I once chased a “target” for about 15 minutes before I realized I was chasing my boot. There are many different ways to use a detector, depending on your environment, detector, and desired target. Here we’ll discuss the proper way to swing that thing and get you accustomed to the do’s and don’ts. Here’s a recap on how to switch your machine on and get going. Remember, always read your metal detector’s manual thoroughly! 1. Step away from metal objects and turn your detector on.

It’s always best to be introduced by a friend, as a friend. It helps to take some of the distrust out of the equation. It’s like going to a job interview with a letter of recommendation and knowing that your potential boss likes donuts as opposed to showing up unprepared and without donuts. If it’s an awesome property that you’ve deemed full of potential, do your research and give yourself a fighting chance. You only have one. At the same time, don’t overdo it. You don’t want to creep Bob out by showing up on his doorstep wearing his favorite team’s shirt and alumni hat, blasting his favorite album from your car while holding a fly rod.

For instance, you might bury a quarter at 10 inches, a nickel at 8 inches, a penny at 7 inches, and a dime at 6 inches. After you’ve gotten your test garden set up, practice locating the targets while experimenting with your machine’s settings. Try to optimize the target response, paying close attention to things like your sensitivity, threshold, ground balance, and other settings. Also try experimenting with your swing speed. Note how your detector responds to fringe targets, or targets that are on the verge of not being detected due to their distance from the coil, and remember those responses.
