Product Description

A powerful, precision Metal Detector made for Woodworking

Helps prevent costly damage to woodshop equipment

The Lumber Wizard 4 is the latest version of Wizard Industries' flagship woodworking metal detector. A powerful precision hand-held metal detector designed specifically for woodworkers, it helps detect small metal objects hidden inside new or used lumber. The new version features a laser-line generator that provides a bright visual reference of where metal is detected. Undetected nails, screws or other metal fragments can damage expensive jointer, planer and saw blades. Flying metal can also cause serious injury. Easy to use, the Lumber Wizard 4 helps woodworkers prevent equipment damage and personal injury. The unit includes a beep tone alert, allowing use of the Lumber Wizard 4 with or without the laser activated. The Lumber Wizard has received rave reviews from woodworkers and magazines across the country for over 10 years, and the new version is even better!
