Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi All

In my spare time I enjoy dowsing.

Using rods and pendulums I find lost objects.

It has a practical use because I can detect underground obstacles on construction sites - metal detectors cant find ceramic drains or archeological remains or perched water.

I can.

Best regards

Mike Testro

Hi Gary

I have never dowsed for UXO’s but they are there to be located along with all other hidden objects.

Mind you - if your backacter hits a tailfin he will need a new bucket.

Best regards

Hi Lawrence

I discovered that I could do it from a friend who showed me how.

In fact anyone can do it.

All you need is as open mind and the tools that are right for you - preferable made by yourself.

A cackle and hunchback are optional but no bar.

Best regards

How are you on UXOs, Mike?

We could you use on site. It’s always unnerving when you find just a big tailfin.

Mike -

Is this ability something you are born with or can you learn it? Most of the dowsers I have known were elderly women with hunched backs.

Best regards,

Lawrence
