I read somewhere about turning a calculator into a metal detector. I didn't have time to read it and now I can't find it. To me it sounds like someones blowing smoke but I'd still like to see what they did and how it works. As anyone ever heard of this? Also if that is just someone blowing smoke then would it be possible to make a metal detector out of stuff that I have laying around the house? I was thinking maybe something small enough to fit in a backpack and with a capability to find a dime at 2 or 3 inches would be great. I own 2 metal detectors but neither one of them break down enough to put in a pack. Thanx, Swizzle

Never heard of one made from a calculator before... Have a look at the main site tomorrow (March 31) for a simple DIY version.
