Hey el oro?That?s a petty easy thing to do?.Make a set of rods from metal coat hangers. Ask you wife before you destroy them. The instructions are in the first post. If you don?t have any metal  coat hanger just go to any place where the employees wear uniforms. I am sure they will give you a couple. Now throw a coin on the floor and step on it. Now you have saw it with your own eyes. Now do you believe????Art

Hey Ladies and gentlemen??After much thought I have decided that I should add a little to this thread. My dowsing position used to be with my arms at shoulder height and push out as far as I could. My 14 ? inch rods would be closed when my heel was on the target. After having a stroke and finding that the rods would not work I had to make some changes.
My new position is with my elbows tight against my rib cage. I now need to use a 9 ? inch rod?.

.Take masking tape and put a large X on the rug or on the patio. Use a compass to put the tape in a North-South and East- West positions?Put a target in the middle of the X then walk a few feet from the target. When the rods close mark the spot. Do this on all four ends of the tape. Tell me if they are crossing the same distance from the masking tape each time. Then put your heel on the target. If the rods are not crossed move your arms in and out and see if there is one spot where they are crossed. Let us know how this experiment comes out?

When the rods cross you stop and square your body to the line. Turn 90 degree?s your rods should open?Then there are two option?s  that can be used to follow the signal line?Walk a S pattern to the target?That?s  what I recommend. You can also move your hands closer to each other and see if the rods will form a vee shape for you. If the vee shape forms adjust your hands until the tips are about two inches apart. Now just walk directly to the target keeping the tips in the right place.
The best way to practice this is put a target on the ground?Go 30 feet or more. Find the signal  and mark it?.Run a string or rope from the mark to the target..I have a photo of the S pattern that came with a tool I bought

Ok?For me each object puts a signal line out in a North-South and East-Direction. So when you are following a signal line you may encounter a line from another object. When I am following a signal line and the rods cross I am not always sure that I have found the target . To make sure that it is the signal that I was  following I take a few more steps and turn 90 degrees. I then drop one rod to my side. The up rod will always point to the target. Switch the rods and see if the other rod points the same as the other one?I can only write about how dowsing works for me..If this will work for you it sure beats the heck out of digging an extra hole

Dowsing in the car..... I use  a baited rod most of the time. It works best if you put you elbow on the center console. The rod will wonder a little as if it is searching. When it turns the direction it is pointing is the side of the road that the target is on. I go down the road at the speed limit. When a feel a short pull  on the rod I know I have passed it.  I turn a round and come back slowly. When the rod turns I will get out and check it out more and do whatever needs to be done.
I find that the limits on depth and distance are shorter when in the automobile. An example is a gold vein. I seem to have a 20 foot depth and a range of about 4 miles when in the car. Again it takes a lot of practice and learning to do it right.
This is another way to save time?.If you have three or four sites you can check them out in a hurry. If there is parallel roads in the area you can take GPS readings and confirm your map dowsing fast and easy

Dear Art,

You wrote: "Remember that these L Rods (out of the hangers) are not very sensitive but will react to a lot of different objects." 

Which rods do you consider the most sensitive to smaller metal objects?  I am new to the dowsing field. 
Thank you     M

Hallo.
Healthy. I wonder if you can find a hidden coin or ring of gold, I have tried, and that distance and deep can be detected. The sunny weather or wet soil is better.!

What length of rods is the best search for gold.
