Pinpointer and digging knife wanted
« on: October 12, 2016, 08:05:34 PM »
I am on the lookout for a pinpointer for my youngest. He has been out a couple times with his new machine and is finding stuff, junk but he is finding metal all the same and its making him happy. He has some birthday money and he has asked if he can buy a pinpointer and I said yes......plus it will stop him harassing me for mine lol.
I am not looking to spend much as he has other things to buy. I have seen the visua pinpointer for £30 new but I thought i would ask here in case anyone has a decent pointer going cheap?
Also on the lookout for a digging tool/knife.

Cheers
Scott

To be honest I have never heard of it a quick google turned up with this  from another forum. I think the lad would be better off with some other mainstream make .
Buy from a shop that sells metaldetecting gear, there are fakes being sold out there. Good luck

Good advice there.  Cannot go wrong with the right stuff ...

Thanks for that Gasman.

It's is true buy cheap buy twice. He is just a bit young yet to be buying stuff in that price range, will see if a secondhand one will pop up on here

There's a shop in Glasgow, near the Barras, called Bill's Tool Store; they have second-hand stuff, ex-military trenching tools. You can get a wee folding spade and collapsible pick for much cheapness, i.e. less than £20.
