What did you use to hold the coat hangars?
SNIFF- SNIFF Smells like a bull with loose bowels...
Don't waste your time "witching", get a psychic instead if you are going to waste time and money.
Haha i had a feeling it was that simple but i wondered if there would be too much friction between hand and hangar for it to move.
You can hold them loosely in your hand or drill out a 1 inch dowel and put the short end in there. Make sure there's no coating on the hanger, you want bare wire. Where I used to work our shop guy used welding rods with a PVC pipe handle but I don't recall exactly how the rod was mounted in the handle. I think he bend the bottom into a loop like an eye to keep it in the handle. We used them for locating underground storage tanks and piping and buried utilities.
I use a OuiJa board....
darryl, dowsing rods can be made from anything, even pvc pipe.
one of my buddies calls them my voo-doo sticks.
i have one of the pollardwater sticks and keep a pair of brass rods in the trencher trailer, a pair on the excavator and a pair in the truck. these get a lot of use.
in a pinch i have used a couple of scrap 3/4 or 1 inch pvc 90's to dowse with, they'll work.
here is some interesting reading;
I keep my dowsing rods on the shelf right next to my perpetual motion machine, my cold fusion reactor and my guide on How To Make Money Out of Nothing by Keyenes, and other stuff that doesn't work.
just ask buck_wheat to show you how to use them, you silly.
I disagree with him though, the object you're locating doesn't need to have movement.
