LUMBER WIZARD ENHANCEMENTS IMPROVE SENSITIVITY AND EASE-OF-USE
The Lumber Wizard Woodworking Metal Detector is updated with better detection strength, ease-of-use, and increased reliability.
Van Nuys, California – The Lumber Wizard, a favorite among woodworkers nationwide, has recently undergone some design enhancements.
The popular metal detector has seen tremendous growth in popularity and recognition. “It filled a need for a highly sensitive, affordable, feature-packed metal detector for woodworkers,” says company CEO Billy Carmen. “With our personal customer support and great warranty, we’ve become a favorite of many consumers.”
All Lumber Wizards shipped as of October 2003 feature an improved circuit design, and more robust construction. The highly sensitive detector is now more reliable than ever, and its externally accessible coarse-tuning adjustment screw allows it to be precisely tuned.
“We’re quite happy with the response this product has received,” noted Carmen. “User reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, and having the product featured on TV shows such as The New Yankee Workshop, has really helped increase consumer awareness of the important role of metal detectors in the wood shop.”
There's probably nothing more annoying to a woodworker than damaging a planer, saw or jointer blade. Frequently small metal objects such as staples, nails, screws or even bullets can be hidden inside new or recycled wood. Undetected, these metal culprits often cause costly planer or jointer blade damage, or worse still, they can cause injury to woodworkers.
The Lumber Wizard helps detect metal objects buried up to 4” deep in wood. It is easy to use, designed specially for woodworkers, and is far less expensive than comparable “security” metal detector products. Retailing for only $99.95, it is currently available nationwide through ACE Hardware stores, Woodcraft Supply, Lee Valley, Amazon.com, Eagle America, and many other woodworking and specialty tool suppliers, hardware stores, and most catalog retailers. “It can pay for itself with just one blade saved,” noted Carmen.
“Though the changes are subtle, they’re very important steps in improving an already great product.” noted Carmen. “We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our products while keeping our prices low. Ultimately, it’s the consumer who benefits the most.”
