I keep seeing the pro's use this foot scoop at the beach, and I have to say I really want one.  But the cost on line is a little out of my league.  I've also looked into making one, but think it may not hold up.  If anyone has one they want to sell, or know of a site where I could find one under $50.00, I would appreciate it.

Thank you,

SharenH

I have a stainless steel bill scoop with a long handle that i use my foot to dig with. Its sturdy and wont bend like the cheap ones. So in the long run you get what you pay for. You may find a used one on E-Bay just look around....Good luck.....DW

Hi Sharon........Did you ever find a sand scoop? I you haven't, check some of the pawn shops.They often have detectors and may even have some scoops. You can always negotiate with them. If that doesn't work, try a local welding shop, they could make one for you if you can give them a drawing or make one out of cardboard or something similiar as a pattern for them to go buy. I've made them out of old valve covers off of engines etc.

Have a peaceful evening.......John in Va..

No I haven't gotten one yet, I have looked into making one. I  have looked at the materials to build one at Lowe's, but haven't bought them yet.  I keep hoping to find one on Craig's list.  I have looked at the local pawn shops.  No one here has them or even metal detectors...  I will keep searching.  Thank you for the idea's...

More than one meet your price criterion. Order two for when hubby gets his detector.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.
