New update: My experiences in the field with this pinpointer were rather frustrating so I did a small test at home, and turns out the sides don’t detect much. The dealer said his pinpointer in the shop does it the same way, so .. this is it:

IT WILL TELL YOU WHEN IT’s IRON !!
I’m not finding much lately and hence, my motivation is down the drain..

Those things are usually 30-40cm deep and since I don’t like digging big holes with my shovel, I sit down and poke around with a screwdriver (or chop off with my shovel while squatting). It takes ages and it’s all for nothing. So now I will hear the signal for iron before I start the excavation and I will move on, hence saving time for more valuable targets. Iron can be cool too but usually it’s just a piece of the machines or a rusty nail.
