Post: Metal detector

I just got a new SawStop and now I’m nervous about metal in my lumber. What detectors are you using and why that model?  I want a good one so I’m willing to spend a little extra.  Jeff

Has anyone made a drill press table for their PM2800?  With the expandable wings on the table it makes it trickier to mount and secure a table so I’m looking for ideas.  Jeff
