Metal detectors are used to detect metals. Metal detectors have a control box with speakers, batteries, microprocessor, circuit and controls. The unit must also have a stabilizer to keep it steady when it is moved. It needs a search coil to sense the metal and a shaft to connect the control box to the coil.
