I added a high strength magnet to the head of my principal digging tool. This magnet is strong enough to hold the iron bits though the digginfThe idea is it gets the bits of iron that interfer with the probe. I worked with it for about an hour today and you can see what it picked up. The extra weight of the magnet is the only drawback so far.

10-4====== makes a world of difference especially when digging in old townsites with lots of iron litter.
