Re: Finding property stakes
actually Joe, You should not have much Problems Finding the stake, unless the area is filled with trash.
the stake should not be that deep,
unless Fill was brought in. I doubt if it's 6" deep.
Probably closer to Flush to 1" deep .
try All Metal mode first, IF allot of trash,
Switch to Discrimination and try at Can tab range.
Or If you know where one of his other stakes are
Tune it to Pick it up.
Most stakes I have found were Brass which is easy to find,
and you may not even need the extra rage to can tabs
so Unless your Whites is an Antique from the 60's or 70's
a little patience should help you find it.
And unless it's a steel Steak you won't need all metal.
But if your finding Deep Nails, There should be no problem.
a detector will penetrate anything but Metal.
