What Has Been Found on Oak Island - With a Metal Detector

What Has Been Found on Oak Island - With a Metal Detector

We have been following the hit History Channel television show The Curse of Oak Island for about 7 years as of this writing.  Although many average viewers think the  treasure hunt has been a bust, those within the world of metal detecting know otherwise.  

Along with what some might consider junk - like leather book bindings, scraps of wood, and iron pieces. There have, in fact, been some valuable items found on Oak Island.

Posted - No Hunting, Fishing, or Trespassing Signs

With our new Posted - Hunting, Fishing or Trespassing for any purpose is Strictly Forbidden - Violators will be prosecuted, signs, you can let people know that your property is Off Limits!

Made of solid, weather resistant aluminum and painted in high-visibility yellow, these signs will get your point across.  Purchase the larger 11" x 7.5" signs for entrances or roadways and use the smaller 3.75" x 3.75" signs for fence posts, corner markers, or trees.  Both are offered for sale individually or in larger quantities....

Super Strong Rare Earth Magnets Uses and Warnings

Super Strong Rare Earth Magnets Uses and Warnings

Rare earth magnets are used by metal detectorists for a variety of purposes.  Often we will fasten one to the end of our detector picks, shovels and other digging tools to help separate any iron that may be interfering with a signal in a plug we dig.  I have even fastened several of them together on a rake to remove iron scrap pieces from large areas before metal detecting.  Most frequently they are used for meteorite hunting.  Since a great deal of meteorites contain iron (sometimes in low percentages) these super strong magnets are really good for helping someone determine if an unusual rock may be a meteorite.

Although a useful tool, these magnets can be very, very, dangerous.  They come in all different sizes.  From only a few millimeters in diameter up to several inches. We only keep one at a time on display in the shop.  Children are prohibited from getting near them and even adults are warned not to play with them.  I tell them that by picking up the magnet they are effectively holding a loaded gun - and I am dead serious.  One time we got two 450lb magnets stuck together and it took two vehicles, back to back, to separate them.  

It is vital to understand how important....
