A Brief History: Falcon metal detectors have been available for over 12 years.  The Falcon MD8 was first produced in Montrose, CO for the specific purpose of finding ultra fine gold and gold bearing material.

Currently produced in Mesa, AZ, the most popular Falcon model, the MD20, has become an industry standard for electronic probes of all kinds.  Its high frequency of 300 kHz and unique electronic design have given it excellent ability to find super fine gold particles that other detectors and probes cannot find.  The Falcon can find particles of gold barely visible with the human eye.
The Falcon’s superior ability to detect gold, silver, copper, platinum and other valuable metals in rock formations provide the prospector with a tool unavailable until now.   Historically, tailings piles were created by miners selecting good ore from “worthless rocks” by sight alone.  Millions of dollars of valuable ore were discarded because the miner couldn’t see the metal!!  Those metals are still lying in those tailings piles waiting for someone with the electronic sight of a Falcon.

Falcon Metal Detectors is now announcing the newest member of the family, the MD20.  With improved sensitivity and more power, the MD20 series of Falcons will give the modern prospector the ability to find gold in places never before detectable.  Small enough to fit in you pocket and rugged enough to be used in the field,  the MD20 will be a necessary tool for every serious prospector.

While designed with the gold prospector in mind, the Falcon has found many other metal detecting uses, such as:

  • Hobby – Pinpointing coins and jewelry without touching them
  • Medical – Locating metal fragments in the body
  • Construction – Locating covered up nail heads
  • Food Service – Scanning for metal fragments
  • Wood Working – Finding metals before damaging blades
  • Many others where small metal pieces need to be detected.

Tips on using the MD20

An easy fix for making knobs harder to turn  is to buy 2 small O rings, the type that can be found in a hardware store. Remove the knobs by backing out the screw in the side of the knob, then pulling the knob off the shaft. Slide the O ring down over the shaft, replace the knob on the shaft and tightening the screw. Adjust the knob up or down on the shaft/O ring to get the tension you prefer. This will have no effect on your warranty.

There is some uncertainty on how to use the sliding copper ring on the probe. A good analogy might be the focus ring on a flash light. When the copper ring is on the black line you get a wider beam. When the copper ring is pushed toward the red line the beam gets more narrow. When the ring is pushed beyond the red line the beam collapses and the unit will continue to sound. For better stability set the copper ring on or near the black line. If you are unable to slide the copper ring to the red line, your unit may need to be calibrated, if so please call us.
