i have been using the exact detector that the OP posted for years. and i paid under twenty bucks for it off ebay or amazon (cant remember which?) |
it works fantastic and has saved me several saw blades over the years. the one i have has a switch to go between a beep and vibrate.
for the price you cant go wrong and i wouldnt be without one in my shop!

I found the best price at PTI (authorized dealer)... https://www.pti-world.com/product/ga...uperscanner-2/ |
...got it in, tested it finding office staples in wood.

|DesertRatTom||Quite reliable. Scan slowly, not fast, with scanner touching the wood surface or very near. Note that it detects some metals, but not all. Some rough, pallet wood or recycled lumber has grit and even pebbles ground in that will damage your blades. You have to find that by feel. The iffy brand was Garret, and it concerns a discontinued, cheaper model being misrepresented as the new and better one.|
