    Default Magnets in detecting?

    I have seen a lot of people who use magnets to get relics out of the water and I was just wondering if anybody knew where to get them?

    I've seen people doing the same aswell on youtube, I've got a big magnet that came out of the back of an old TV that would probably do the job. Not too sure its the best idea as you cant exactly see what you're picking up, could be a helmet, could be an unexploded mortar round

    Thanks

    Magnets work good only in very clean water without mud, you need very powerfol magnet, Russians from Karelia on Youtube used Niobium magnet which can lift 300kg of iron, I also bought such in Russia, but in our lakes in Kurland I could found only some shrapnels, we have a lot of mud, so all heavy stuff is deep in mud and magnet can't lift it.

    What happens if you get something really heavy and you aren't able to pull it up? Will it release?

    I know only one site, it is site of Russian producer of thease magnets

    Also I know one seller in Latvia. I can help You with buying, but problem is that I can't send strong magnet by post, I can try, buy they can found it and throw out.

    I did buy mine at supermagnete - Die strksten Magnete der Welt and mine is a 130kg magnet. It is sufficiently strong - and I oncepulled a motorcucle engine up with it ! Unfortunately it was not from the war - but probably from a stolen bike... :-)

    I have not yet found anything good except handgrenade parts, bullet etc. But for sure there is a lot of good stuff in the water,
