The MetalliScanner m40 finds plumbing, ductwork, rebar, nails, and screws in walls, floors, and ceilings, and is great for scanning reclaimed lumber for hidden metal.
– Detects ferrous and non-ferrous metals in most non-metallic surfaces.
– Finds the pattern of nails to detect studs.
– LED arrays indicate signal strength.
– Blue coil and audio tone indicate when metal target is located.
– PinPoint Scan locates small objects, including screws and nails.
– Wide Scan detects metal in walls or concrete.
Use the m40 s PinPoint Scan position to locate small metal targets such as nails and refine your search results.
How to Use
As the m40 approaches a metal object, the red LEDs progressively light from the bottom up. The top lighted blue coil and an audio tone indicate the strongest signal when a metal target is located.
Calibrate away from any metal for maximum sensitivity. Recalibrating closer to the target decreases sensitivity to find the precise location of metal.
Use the m40 s Wide Scan to quickly find approximate locations of metal in walls and or concrete.
Use the m40 in Wide Scan position just as you would in PinPoint Scan position.
The m40 solves the difficult problem of finding studs in lath and plaster walls that do not contain metal mesh by finding the pattern of nails that attach the wood lath to the studs.
The m40 scans through lath and plaster in both PinPoint Scan and Wide Scan positions.

Customer reviewsVery impressed with its ability to find broken off cut ...
Very impressed with its ability to find broken off cut nails in some 120 year old reclaimed timbers I bought. I need to get any iron pieces that are less than 1 2 below the surface of the timbers so I can plane and surface the timbers for use in a workbench I plan on building. This is working perfectly. Since it will likely never be used again after this project, price was important. I was worried something this inexpensive would not work very well, but am very pleased
