Viking Wasp

Post by Wessexlad » Fri Feb 02, 2018 2:49 pm

Someone on Gumtree is selling one of these brand new for £40, is it worth the money or is it just a cheap entry level machine?


My granddad lived to be 95, and he attributed his long life to eating a spoonful of gunpowder every day.

When he died he left 5 children, 13 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and a 30 foot crater at the crematorium.

Excuse the pun but you could get stung with the Viking Wasp,its not in theory a detector as such that you would use for everyday detecting as its a commercial cheap detector for locating water pipes,man hole cover and the like.Would i buy it ?? i doubt it very much probably someone has bought it thinking its the same as other metal detectors.

Here is a link for the spec on the Viking Wasp,try not to get stung.

Thanks guys, I think I'll give it a miss. Always worth checking these things though.
